FALL Semester

I just got excited. Like really, really excited. Do you want to know why? No, It is not because it is humpday and I can celebrate with the Geico camel.

It does make me smile, like every time, but that is not why.

I am super stoked that today is my very last first day of class. If all goes well, I will be done by December. Grad-school has been a roller coaster ride of emotions, starting with absolute confidence, motivation, and purpose. After that short phase, it was doubt, anxiety, worry, anguish etc. Now I am in the relief phase.

Anything this semester has to throw at me I am ready and waiting! So, all you college peeps out there, lets get this semester started! I even made up an acronym that in this semesters goals. You ready for some F.A.L.L.?



It is all about the fall. The season I am in RIGHT NOW. I am so excited because just by focusing in on what I am doing right now, takes the pressure off of figuring out what I need to do later. It takes a lot for me to remember that this is where God has me, and there is a purpose for me being here, at this moment, with these circumstances.


An aggressive approach to my classes. Get in and get out. We will not be having any of that procrastination biz especially with a  24 page list of Young Adult Literature to read. Yes, you heard correctly. Get after it.


This goes a long the lines of focus… forget the doubt, worry, anxiety, and hold on to the hope that has been given. I am choosing to let-go of those negative voices and hold on to something more worthy. Jesus: the truth.


Love, Love, Love! Have you ever been in that euphoric state where you just LOVE everything. Well, I have, and I want to remember to love this fall (aka be THANKFUL) and therefore, be better at loving people. That’s what it’s all about.

So, there you have it. My silly excuse to include a humpday commercial, and my F.A.L.L. acronym.
