its been awhile...

I know. I know. I've failed at keeping up with my blog. Not getting the LC job, winter quarter finals, and starting a new job with the LA Sparks all gave me too many reasons not to keep this up.  But I'm back at it now... Forgive me?

This quarter begins a long list of lasts for my college career at UCLA. Last quarter, last exams/papers (can't wait!), last raids/sisterhood events/date parties/recruitment/new alpha class/sorority events in general... The list goes on and on.

Through it all I will remember one of my absolute favorite quotes “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”- Henry David Thoreau With this in mind, I will move through the lasts reminding myself that "I have my memories" (remember that Bethany?) and I have a million FIRSTS still to come.

Searching For The Reason

I'm currently trying to remind myself that everything happens for a reason. The past few weeks, maybe even months I've felt pretty invincible. Things had been going my way. I'd been flying high, feeling good, and being consistently pleased with how things in life were going; unfortunately all that came crashing down today when I received a letter in the mail.

It's hard to feel good about my uncertain future right now. One part of my future became certain today, and that is that I will not be getting to do the one thing I truly wanted to do after graduation. I just have to put faith in the thought that God has some other plan in store for me that I'm just not aware of yet.
