First Semester and My Faith

First Semester and My Faith

I did it. I made it. I got through my first semester of college. Wow. With me being on break now, I know many of my family members and friends are bound to ask the question, “How was your very first semester of college?!” And I’m here on my blog to share with everyone how my first semester actually went. It’s so easy to be passive and say “It was good!” but I don’t want to be passive; I want…

Rest

Rest

Hi friends. It’s been a while since I’ve just opened up my laptop and just started writing. I’ve missed it! I was inspired to write about what the Lord has been doing in my life, specifically what he has been doing today, and that is the fact that he has been giving me rest. I’m a college student. It is the most hectic time of the semester with finals rolling around and trying to finish up the last of my…

What story are you grateful for? #30DOGC

What story are you grateful for? #30DOGC

I’m going to break the rules for this question, and say that I’m grateful for many stories and for many different reasons. I’m grateful for the story of the gospel, and the smaller stories in it that it holds. I’m grateful for the stories of “way back when” that elders always tell us young folks about. I’m grateful when I get to dive into a book and read the stories of fictional characters. I’m grateful for the stories I share…

Honestly, I am incredibly grateful for so many people in my life- my mom, my dad, my grandparents, etc. But, I want to give a shout-out to a special friend because she has helped me so much through this season of my life, and that special friend is Mariana. As y’all may know from one of my posts way back in May, Mariana is my roommate and I am SO GRATEFUL that she is. I think my first semester of…

What touch are you grateful for today? #30DOGC

Eeek. Sorry friends. I know I was supposed to do this post yesterday, but life got a little crazy. I’m sure you understand 🙂 Anywho, I’m going to answer this question as if I was writing this post yesterday because it was definitely a day I was grateful for. In terms of touch, I am grateful for the touch of helping hands. This weekend I went to go visit my boyfriend for his college’s last home game. It was SO…

What knowledge are you grateful for? #30DOGC

What knowledge are you grateful for? #30DOGC

I am incredibly grateful for the knowledge I have gained this past semester. Something that is continually being taught in a majority of my classes is that there is very little equal opportunity in America. Before this semester, I knew that minorities are not given the upper hand. I knew that women receive less pay for doing the same job as men. But I didn’t ever really see how often things like this occur. After reading countless articles, watching documentaries and…

What about your body are you grateful for? #30DOGC

What about your body are you grateful for? #30DOGC

This is definitely a question that can steer towards many different directions, so feel free to interpret it in whatever way you’d like, but I want my answer to be a more on the lighthearted side. As silly as it sounds, I’m grateful that I inherited my mother’s eyelashes. I know it sounds ridiculous, but hear me out. My eyelashes make me feel confident. There are days where I only wear mascara and I feel like a superstar. It’s pretty…

What season are you grateful for? #30DOGC

What season are you grateful for? #30DOGC

Oh boy am I grateful for fall. Texas fall isn’t always the greatest weather wise- sometimes it still feels like summer, BUT when we do have a chilly night I feel like people get together and make the most of it. I think it’s a Texan thing. There are so many fun events that go on during the fall that I have so many great memories of: Carving pumpkins, football games, the fair, and festivals.. the list could go on…
