A Part of That

Thanks to some encouragement and persuasion from my dear friends, I finally mustered up the courage to audition for Spring Sing Hostess last night. And, lo and behold, I made call backs. I can't quite wrap my brain around it. Part of me is freaking out. Another part is swelling with a type of confidence I've never experienced before. I keep telling myself "Not my will. Not my will." Truth be told, I want it. I would love to be hostess. Standing on a stage in front of LITERALLY thousands of people doing the thing I love most? Check, please! I've wanted this kind of spotlight since I was four and singing for my family from the fireplace. However, I've gotten so used to being back up, that I don't really know how to feel about wanting this type of thing. I think I'd convinced myself that while I was talented, I was never that talented. We will see. At this point I'm completely honored to even have made it this far. Call backs are tonight @ 7:30. Whew. Nothing to lose, I suppose.

724 days later...

I had literally forgotten about this blog. In fact, I started a NEW one on Word Press not too long ago thinking, "Why haven't I done this before?" Call it old age or pure memory loss, but stumbling upon this little diddy provided a pretty decent laugh. My last entry was 724 (1 year, 11 months, and 22 days) ago. Then, I was but a sophomore, new to Harding. The boy I swore I was going to marry was in Greece and I spent my time wishing his return and planning our seemingly inevitable nuptials. Boy, did I have it wrong! I was young, naive, and far too wrapped up in the lie Christian Universities feed students concerning love and marriage. (I will save that rant for another entry, I'm sure)

And here I am now. A senior. SENIOR. I repeat it, merely because my brain cannot fully fathom the concept. I have been in college for 3, going-on 4, years. Granted, I will not graduate until December of 2010. Still, this all seems so surreal. The aforementioned boy is no longer in the picture. My major has changed. I'm living in a house with ten amazing girls. More surprising, I have learned more about myself in the past two years than I ever imagined I would. I say "surprising" because back then (previous entries) I thought I had it all figured out. My plans were set and while I acknowledged God's authority, I neglected to see HIS plans. Thankfully, He stepped in and changed my path completely.

For simplicities sake, I will be deleting my Wordpress account and returning to this one. (Mainly because this one is easier to navigate)
Happy blog stalking, friends!
