(for reference, here’s last semester’s http://acontentheart.tumblr.com/post/38196929078/this-is-my-current-jam-welcome-to-fall-2k12
and my first ever RAP UP: http://acontentheart.tumblr.com/post/2338426566/what-i-have-learned-in-my-5th-semester-of)
so…it’s that time of the year again guys…my semester rap up (i know it’s wrap but rap is an IJ alert. aka an inside joke.)
it’s my (fake) final semester! woah. that’s so crazy. i’ve actually finished all my core classes (except for 111, 140, and that random one for my associates), so this semester was kind of not interesting academically. i finished my minor by taking some fear classes like nutrition.
most of this semester was spent 1. sleeping, 2. working, or 3. swagbucksing. sometimes i did homework. and i most definitely did not visit the wellness center enough.
-MY LIL GUY. okay. he was not mine. nor was he little. but i was a para for a high school boy with an LD at a school here in town. BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. seriously. i feel like i learned far more from working with him than i have at the group home. and that is saying A LOT. i still pray for him. and i’m thankful that he is where he is now (he moved away). it was so ordained. seriously. i miss that job.
-SWAGBUCKS. okay that is kind of silly. but i really got into earning extra cash dolla dolla billz through swagbucks. and i got julie and jordon hooked.
-julie+jordon. awkward that this is on my list? yes. but he entertained us on a regular basis, drove us to volleyball at church, and brought flowers to 209. and if you need to know one thing, i always appreciate when my roommates have boyfriends because boyfriends provide flowers. and i like flowers.
-CHURCH. yehaw. i have liked ORC a whole lot. i always get something amazing from the sermons and i feel like it’s where God wants me like a lot. which i never expected. but i like it.
-JESUS. He always makes the list. He always teaches me so much and like, okay. i have anxiety (like a legit disorder), but i prayed like, last week, that He would give me the peace to not be worried. and i am like, bam. not that worried. i am actually a bit underwhelmed. like, i’m home. i should be anxious. i don’t know what i am doing in 19 days for school. i don’t know what else is happening in my life. and i am not worried.
-MONO. yes. i had mono. i got it from hoolia. which is standard since we shared a box on the second floor of crane. i blame that for all the naps.
-the extras/usuals. quiet times. fun meals in the caf. becoming better friends with my suitemate. all the foreignness (friends from venezula, brazil, argentina, sweden, and of course, canada. often all at the same dinner table!) chinese new year. hockey games. chats with roof. crushes (kind of…..). reading free books on my kindle for pc. naps. lots of naps. chicken wraps in the caf (so long beaver dam wrap station).
so..(since i am making this my most public post)…i’m sure you are wondering what is next for me. well here is the rundown:
i have completed all of the credits necessary for my undergraduate BS (and AS) in ID/DD EXCEPT a few gen. ed. classes AND my externship. so i will be doing that this summer and taking a class in the fall. i feel like i will probably work in the fall as well (take classes online, since i love that so much). as for the spring. that is up in the air. i have a potential opportunity within my field, but i will know about that in July. so, technically i will be done in the fall of 2013. one thing most of you might not know, is that i have consecrated the first year after college to service to the Lord. i had some plans for that, but of course God has other ones, so i am leaving that up to Him right now. a lot is riding on next spring semester and the awesome opportunity that i may have. seriously though. i am so excited. what got me interested in this was actually a fb video from the brisbane broncos. and no, i’m not going to aussieland again. (oh how joyful that would be though). to get you interested, i will tell you that it DOES have to do with international travel. come on…i have been in ‘Merica for an entire year..i need to get out of the country soon.
so tomorrow (friday) i will walk in my graduation ceremony. i am in the third from the last row, so it’s gonna be LONG. but it will be worthwhile. i graduated college. (kind of). as per usual, Jesus had it under control. how awesome is He? seriously BFFE (best friend for eternity).
