A Milestone of Mixed Emotions

Graduation has left me with mixed emotions.

It is super exciting to reach a milestone, to accomplish something that at times I doubted I could.

It is exciting to reach that milestone with friends, knowing that you have been helping each other along the way.

Simultaneously, it is a scary milestone to reach. This milestone means that I am now responsible for myself. I have to find a job that will begin paying the bills. Yet, I also want to find a job that I am excited to do, a job where I can grow as an individual and participate in the growth of others.

You want to know what else is scary? Interviews, that's what. I've had one so far and it went well from my perspective. However, it's hard to tell what the interviewers are thinking. It's happened before: I'll get an interview, think it went well, get my hopes up, and then find out that I wasn't what they were looking for.

Yet, in the midst of all of this scariness and excitingness, I have a great amount of peace. God's got this in control, so I don't have to worry. He's got my future covered.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

You make me happy when skies are grey

You'll never know, dear, how I love you

So please don't take my sunshine away

Walks & Soccer

Yesterday was a nice relaxing day for me. Last year, I discovered that without a day off of work and school, I go pretty much crazy. So, this year, I've asked for Saturdays off. I don't always get it, but most weeks I do...and it's wonderful.

Early in the afternoon, I went on a walk with my good friend, Lydia. We met for lunch and then we walked for about an hour. It was a nice pleasant day for it, because it was sunny, but not too warm. Lydia was on the Mercy Ships for a year, and it's been fun catching up with her on all of her adventures.

The next thing on the day of relaxing was Jimmy's soccer game. He is the youngest team member, and having never played soccer before, he started out at the bottom of the totem pole. but, over the semester, he has been working up more and more playing time. This game, the Knights (Crossroad's team) won. I can't remember the score. :D

I got Jimmy home in time to grab a quick shower and then we headed out of town towards Stewartville to go to a classmate's bonfire. That was also a lot of fun, but since Emily has the pictures of that, I'm going to wait to tell you about it.
