Next Stop: Senior Year

May 15, 2013

Another year down, another year closer to graduation. I’m having a difficult time wrapping my mind around the fact that I am now a senior. It seems like just yesterday I was a freshman, then I blinked and junior year came to an end! Everyone always says, “Enjoy every moment of college because it will fly by!” As a freshman I honestly didn’t understand what everyone meant by it because I couldn’t imagine college going by so quickly in 4 years. However, now that I’m 3 years into it, I totally understand the saying!

I do feel like I have come to enjoy the different seasons of life I have been through during college. I have been through times of immense joy and school was easy. I have also been through times that were tough and I didn’t think I was going to survive a certain class. One verse that has always remained in the back of my head through it all was Job 1:21 “…the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Sometimes it is easy to forget but one of my goals is to always praise the Lord no matter the circumstances.

I think that overall junior year was a challenge because I began taking mostly Psychology classes but it also showed me that I am capable of working hard and getting good grades! By taking so many Psych classes, I also realized how much I love my major! I am so blessed that I have picked something I am passionate about and that I have my parent’s full support behind what I want to do. So as kind of a good-bye until that fall I wanted to share (below) some of my favorite Instagram's from the year. I pray that you all would seek the Lord this summer and that it would be a great time of growth! Check back in August for some updates of my time at home in Sweden!
