So... I haven't been around lately, just in case you haven't noticed. :P
Life has been busy, fast, and emotionally stressful over the past couple of weeks. I've hardly had time to slow down and breathe, and when I do, it usually results in tears and headaches. Not to say that it hasn't been good - I've had some great times; just overall, I'm trying to get my bearings and calm down.
This past week was the 2013 Reformed Family Bible Conference, and for the first time in a couple of years, I got to spend the whole week there on campus. The teaching was excellent and convicting, especially on my prayer life and the time I spend with God. I often overlook that and rush headlong into the day, which rarely turns out well. Though Conference was good, and I did enjoy it, I'm convinced there's something very wrong with me... I mean, you guys know me; the picture taking maniac, right? I only took 4 pictures. The rest were taken by my mom and another lady at the dance. So... *cough* Yeah.
The Gang pictures turned out badly; my camera battery was dying and the wrong kind of flash was used, so they're dark. (I'm over in the far left hand corner next to the guy in red)
HOWEVER... at least we got some.
I also came back with a tshirt splotched with reds, greens, purples, and all sorts of different names written in marker. I'm very happy with having my friends sign it and plan on doing another one next year. I've worn it for the past couple of nights. :)
So Summer is practically upon us... how is everyone in the Blogger world? My 19th Birthday is coming up on the 28th of July, and honestly, I'm not sure I'm ready for it. Sure, it's just another number, but it's really hard for me to comprehend that I'm going to be 19. I still feel like the 16 year old me in a lot of ways, and while I'm thrilled to be growing up and experience so, SO many new things (trust me, you have no idea,) I still want to stay in that one age that was (compared to this one,) mostly carefree and fanciful. Ah, but welcome to the doorway to adulthood. I feel like I'm standing here peeking in, and am mostly intrigued by it, but also very intimidated by what I see. A couple of people I know have put a foot forward over the threshold, but I'm still standing behind, watching them and a little unsure. I'm not saying that I'm going to just throw away the bombastic, sometimes way too emotional, giddy girlish me, but I'm trying to... how to say... be more aware of what I need to do in my life currently.
Anyway... so, that's really all I have to say currently. I'll try to be posting more frequently.
