5 Things!

Another week come and gone, and let me say, this one went fast! I swear yesterday was Monday…

Anyways, for this blog I thought I’d share 5 things that are making me happy this week!

#1: Post-its! My favorite system of organization by far. I swear, I have like 20 on my desk right now full of meetings, register info, to-do-lists, addresses, long terms project, you name it! They make me feel like I won’t forget anything, and it’s very fulfilling cross things off and rip them down when things are done. Most of them are pink, too:)

#2 Fall and Summer combined! We’ve got an awesome mix of seasons going on right now at Augie. It’s been in the 70’s and 80’s this week, but the trees have changed into fall colors. I’m absolutely loving the combo! And I was really cool this morning and walked around with my camera taking pictures of it all-

#3 Class outside! I had my religion class outside yesterday, and besides the beautiful weather and fresh air, we were also sitting under trees with little yellow leaves. Every time the wind blew the leaves came down like a rain shower, or a leaf shower?! My professor said it was a picture that needed to be in one of the admissions viewbooks. 

#4 Convocation with Shaine Claiborne! An amazing Christian who gave the convocation address yesterday. I also had the chance of attending a lunch and dinner this week where he spoke as well. His speech was about whether Jesus really meant what he said, and he examined what it looks like when we truly live as the Body of Christ on Earth. The message was right up my alley, and challenging and inspiringat the same time. Just a snippet of his message- ‎”God doesn’t want to change the world without us. We ask: God why don’t you do something? and He answers: I did do something, I made you.”

#5 My voice is back! Finally. And just in timefor my two concerts this weekend! I finally feel like my singing voice is back and better than ever, and it couldn’t make me happier.  And along with two concerts this weekend, I also have two regattas. It’s gonna be a busy weekend! But my family is coming down to see everything, andI can’t wait to see them. 

So without further ado, I’ve got to go to rehearsal for gospel choir. Until next time!
