It's Been a While

I haven't posted a lot this semester, and it's not really because I'm too busy. I guess I just have a lot of other stuff to think about - like graduating. AHHHHHHH! :)

Speaking of school...BOO research proposals, marriage and family programs, and my horrible, awful procrastination. I am so stubborn. Nevertheless, I WILL get it done - on time and pretty well.

It's still kind of weird sometimes that I am actually graduating in May. Holy cow. Really? Most of the time, though, I feel like I'm completely ready for the next step. Which, hopefully, will be grad school. I'm ready for a new place and new people (not to say anything against anyone here - I will miss many people). New experiences, as well. It excites me.

Yesterday I had a meeting with Renee Jones in Career Services. We went over the resume (which I kind of threw together quickly) I had made last week. Let me just tell you, it looks like someone died and bled all over it. Lol. Obviously, making resumes are not my strong point. Give me an essay. No, please don't. That was a joke. Anyway, there had to be a "Profile" section at the top - basically 6-8 of your qualities. That was just a flipping blast. I felt horrible for Renee, because it was like pulling teeth from me. I am glad that I didn't do it on my own; she really helped me come up with things and ways to word them that rock. Those people are there for a reason. Now I wish I'd gone to them sooner. Even though deadlines aren't until January and February, I should have been way ahead of the game. I read one guide to grad school that said junior year you should take the GRE. I thought, "Yeah...if only I wasn't an ENGINEERING major at the time!" One of my "qualities" is that I am well-rounded. ;)

Someone told me about this awesome website, You add prayers, then set up an e-mailing or texting schedule for them to remind you to pray. It's basically sweet. I have a lot of reminders set up throughout the day to remind me to thank God for at least one thing; it's made me appreciate things more. So often we forget that there are innumerable things to be thankful for every day.

And speaking of God, can I just tell you I am stoked about Klemata?! We had our leader retreat this past weekend. All the girls were incredible, and I cannot wait to see how God is going to use each of us to make an impact on other women at Union. It kind of makes me nervous to think I'll be leading my own small group of girls, but I have no doubts that God has put me in this position and He will give me the ability to exalt His name - which is what I'm here for anyway, right? ;)
