I find it absolutely insane that I am 3 weeks into my senior year right now. I’m all moved into my room. I get to live by myself since I am a Resident Mentor [previously known as an RA.] This year I was blessed to get to pick my suite-mate so I share my bathroom with my wonderful friend Allie. She is a beautiful woman of faith & a wonderful person to help me stay grounded in busyness.
I don’t even know what I’m supposed to think about this being my senior year. I have a good picture of where I will be when I graduate, & unless God completely turns my world upside down, or guides me somewhere else, it will be soooo good to be home & working. But at the same time, I need to make sure I’m taking advantage of every moment I have here at MSU. I have 231 days until I graduate & there are things that need to be done!
With that said, unfortunately, I have been having a harder time adjusting this year than years before. I’m sure it has to do with the fact that my internship ended the day before I had to move to East Lansing for Mentor training, & losing gramps, but it has just been so hard to get settled into the idea of classes, meetings, and having responsibilities besides ministry.
Hopefully the fact that I’ve finally gotten settled into my room will help with this adjustment. I have literally moved around my furniture 4 or 5 times, & each time it ends up back to where I put it on move-in day. Here’s a little peek into my space.
