Goodbye, Summer!

I am ashamed to realize that I haven't posted since August 7th. I guess my good intentions for this thing called blogging isn't working, yet I press on.

School started this past week. I am really excited about my classes, teachers, and the fact that I am now a Senior in high school, but I just don't know if I'm ready for the school year. I guess I will be ready whether I like it or not! I can't believe I'm a Senior. Being a Senior(like being able to drive, getting married) is just one of those things that I never thought would happen when I was younger. It seemed so wonderful, but I thought it was so far away that it would never happen. Don't worry... I don't even know what I'm talking about. My mind does weird things. I just can't fathom the fact that I only have one year of high school left! Most people(okay... everyone except me) seem to think its crazy, but they get over it, whereas I can not! I just can't wrap my brain around it! I'm getting old! Well... not literally(obviously). I'm just growing up faster than I thought I could. It boggles my mind. Did I mention how crazy it is that I'm a Senior? :-)

This semester I'm taking three "outside" classes, and I'm doing math(two years in one, yuck!), Health, and a Dave-Ramsey-something-or-other-financial-thing-my-mom-asked-me-to-do. I'm taking Psychology and American Sign Language at the community college, and my incredible World View class(the third, and final, one). I know it's not going to be an easy year by any means, but I know it will be good. I am actually looking forward to having a schedule again though, I'm not gonna lie. During the summer every week is so different, and I love knowing what's going on. I just have to work on getting that routine down now!

I know that the worst part of this year is coming to terms with the fact that I won't get to see a lot of my friends nearly as much. This summer has been wonderful for me relationally, and, specifically my grade at church, has grown incredibly close, and I know I'll miss them. In fact, this week I missed all of them so much and I couldn't do anything about it! Come on, it hadn't even been a week! I am so thankful for every single one of them though. Earlier today we got to get together for some lunch, and it was good to see them. Yes, I'll see them on Sundays at church and afterwards most days, but compared to seeing them at least a few times a week, it just isn't the same. I hope and pray we can find a way to stay in touch through all the busyness of our lives.

One last random thing... I have become obsessed with Kari Jobe over the summer. I heard a song of hers on a CD someone gave me, and then I liked it so much I decided to buy her album. I can listen to it over and over again. At the moment my favorites are probably Singing Over Me and You Are For Me, although I truly love every single one.

That's all, Folks! Back to the school-year routine!
