(Remember June? Well "she" turned out to be a "he". His new name is Max)
I always have high expectations of the fleeting summer days. Seeing as how I can never ever sit still (seriously, just ask my parents), I always feel like I need to be doing something all summer. Though I may not have done all that much, I still had another wonderful break full of vacation, relaxation, swimming, photo shoots, impromptu get togethers. Honestly, this break has brought so many amazing opportunities and experiences that have helped me grow and stretch both in my career and in my relationship Him. It has been a good one.
I can't quite allow the thought to sink into my head though -- Summer is over.
It is crazy to think that just a smidgen over a year ago, I posted this. I was a 15 year old who was quite nervous about going into high-school. And now? I am a Sophomore. My Freshman year has passed and now it's time to begin a new journey. Last year helped me realize many important things that will definitely carry over to this year -- never get behind on work, don't be lazy, take school very seriously, allow yourself to eat a hand full of chocolate chips when stressed, and trust in God completely.
Let the journey begin.
