Am I Really This Old?

As I am preparing to take my last final of sophomore year this afternoon, I can't help but think that I am almost halfway done with college.  SAY WHAT?!  I know it is SO weird for me to think that, because it literally seems like yesterday that I was graduating from high school and about to leave to start my freshman year here at USC.  Time, please feel free to slow it down!  With this realization that I am getting ridiculously old, I also realize that I need to star thinking about what exactly I want to do once I graduate from college (weird thought).  Since I am an education major, it is very important to have your masters when you are looking for jobs or a lot of schools won't hire you.  So, I know that I will definitely stay in school after graduation to get that, but what am I going to do after that?  Do I want to teach here in Columbia or in Greenville or go some place completely different?  I have actually thought a lot about doing the Teach for America program.  This is an organization where you agree to teach in low income schools that are devastated by poverty for at least 2 years.  They have programs all over the country from Tennessee, Washington D.C., California, and even in South Carolina.  There are so many opportunities with this program and I think it would be a really neat experience.  But, who knows I could change my mind between now and when I graduate.  So, whatever path God sees fit to send me on is the one I will graciously and faithfully take.  I know that He has a bigger plan for me than I do and I really can't wait to find out what that is!

Giving In

So, I have decided to give into the blogging trend (obviously).  Most of my friends have blogs and I actually really enjoy reading them.  Since we don't all go to the same school, it's a good way to keep up with what's going on in their lives.  To be quite honest, the main reason I decided to start a blog was because I had to deactivate my facebook for the whole summer for sorority recruitment.  So, I really need something to fill my time that would otherwise be spent facebook stalking.  Who knows if I will be a loyal blogger, or one that decides to post every now and them.  I guess it will just depend on how difficult this facebook fast is, but I am going to try and give you updates on what's happening in my life or just when something cool happens and I feel the need to share it with someone.  I know the only people who will probably read this are my friends, but I'm not looking to become some famous blogger.  So, to whoever comes across this, I hope you enjoy :)
