Your glory goes beyond all fame

"When I see you, the world. It stops and all that exists for me, is you and my eyes staring at you. There's nothing else. No noise, no other people, no thoughts or worries, no yesterday, no tomorrow. The world just stops and it's a beautiful place and there's only you. Just you. And my eyes staring at you. When you're gone, the world starts again and I don't like it as much. I can live in it, but I don't like it. I just walk around in it, and wait to see you again and wait for it to stop again. I love it when it stops. It's the best thing I've ever known or ever felt, the best thing, and that, is why I stare at you."

Your light will shine when all else fades

I know my blogs are few and far between, but I'm working on it!

Unlike my last post, this one is a drastic change! Everything seems to be going so well in my life right now, I am cautiously waiting for the next thing to go wrong. And with things this perfect, it's gotta be something big...right? :/

I.Love.College. I truly do. So yeah, maybe I am that dorky kid who sits in the back of class taking notes all day. And I just might be the girl who has ZERO friends. And I may hate my philosophy class with everything in me. BUT, I love college :)

I love my education classes. I love that tomorrow I start my field placement. aka, I start going into a school with a teacher, helping, doing lessons, etc. I love knowing I am going to start making a difference in children's lives already! This is so much more than I ever anticipated my freshman year. One neat thing is my niece is in my class tomorrow and possibly my half-sister. I'm not 100% how I feel about that second part. Actually, I guess I shouldn't dwell on it. I mean, she probably doesn't remember me after all these years anyways. But how awesome to see her and her growth right before me :) I will be sure to post ASAP!

Dustin came back from Connecticut...see the distance thing doesn't last long with us ;)

As many of you may know, I am going to a very strict Christian College. I, to this day, am not sure whether or not I believe in God. We are required to attend Chapel three times a week. I thought I was going to hatehatehate going to Chapel, but I genuinely enjoy it. (Although my boyfriend does not. When I like a song, it means everyone around me better be prepared to hate it in a day or so. I keep coming home with all these worship songs, and he is going crazy!! :P) So on that note, I shall go to bed and leave you with this amazing song to listen to and think about :)
