School back in swing

It's a Thursday afternoon, do you know where your teachers are?
Well, today is actually a faculty staff day, so I am fortunately not in class, where I should be right about now. But I am enjoying the fact that I don't have to be there. But I still have homework, nonetheless. It's crazy! School's already a week in. I was back home 2 weeks ago, that's the crazy part. I was leaving to come here. That's what boggles my mind.

I'll write again eventually.

City Nights

Tonight had to be one of the most enjoyable for me. I was walking with a group of friends in downtown Louisville on the Waterfront. It is absoultely amazing at night because the view of the city is fantastic. I've missed that. I grew up near one of the biggest cities in the world, and now I find myself longing for that life over and over and over again. It's another indication of what is inevitably to come in my life, moving to Tokyo. I have the persona of a city slicker, and I am very proud of it. Seeing bright lights of a city is a relaxing image to me.

I am back in my dorm and thinking to myself how overwhelming things are going to be this semester. But then I stopped and realized how much faith I have that God will see me through. God has held my hand these past 2 years of school, and I don't think that he is going to stop anytime soon. That is why he is God. He is behind me in everything I do, and he stands by me when I am falling, when I am no good. That's what makes him the amazing father that he is. He is the daddy that picks us up and puts us on his shoulders when we can no longer stand. I am leaning on that knowledge, so I can face this semester without fear.

Start All Over

Well here I am. I am back in Louisville, KY, and am about to start my junior year at Boyce College. I have a full week of vacation pretty much since nobody is here yet. There are only a handful of people that are actually on campus. Most of them are student leaders, but I had to be here because of the emergency situation. My family is going to be in Israel on business until the end of August. But I am here, and I will be enjoying every minute of this. I'm sorry this can't be longer, but I have to finish getting dressed. I am going out with some friends for his birthday today. I will write again later.
