It's taken me awhile longer than I expected to warm up to the excitement of the New Year. Which is strange because I usually love new, fresh beginnings- new classes, new projects, new chance to plan my life away, haha. But finals week this last semester beat me down, and now it feels as if I am flying a million miles per hour into the future, my future- my last semester of college.
It's finally here! First of all, how did it get here so quick? I'm torn. I definitely have a slight case of Senioritis. A nice long break from school? Yes please. Not to mention I have a thing for planning and romanticizing the future. All those beautiful, daunting unknowns.
And yet, I don't think I'm quite ready to leave this beautiful place called Point Loma that I've grown to love so dearly. Four years ago it called to me, and through a blessed chain of events, here I am. I love the little things here, like driving out to the Point just to think, absorb music, and see rows and rows of white, military tombstones propped up against the San Diego city skyline. It somehow calms me in the midst of any chaos. I love getting my favorite coffee drink at my favorite coffee place right next to school. I love walking outside of my apartment on campus and seeing the ocean. And reminding myself not to take it for granted. I love quiet times with Jesus at Sunset Cliffs. I love recognizing people everywhere I go because my school is the size of a bubble. I love all the personal growth that has stemmed from all the ups and downs of the past four years. I've been blessed to meet so many different people that have come in and out of my life here.
Enough reminicsing. Hello Spring 2010. I have a feeling that you will be very stressful, busy, and daunting. Yet very exciting. I don't know where you will lead me, but with enough prayer and hard work, I think it will be somewhere good :)
