Wow. Its been a while. Over a year.
I just read some of my past entries and am shocked to realize how much I have changed since then. 2012 brought so many unexpected things into my life that I am so incredibly grateful for. What really hit home for me was something I wrote in my first blog entry as a letter to the new year. I wrote:

"2012, please be memorable, enlightening, breathtaking, different, adventurous, and full of love."

...and boy did 2012 deliver. God gave me a beautiful new year full of so much growth and experience. It had its ups and downs as every year does as well as many challenges that had to be overcome but I've learned so much from being here at Potsdam. Even just these first two semesters have provided me with connections, people and knowledge that will stick with me for years to come.

Being away on my own has really put things in perspective. I know this is just the very beginning and I have a long way to go in every aspect but I'm so thankful to have this opportunity. 2013 has had a rocky start but I'm making the most of it and continuing to learn. I'm excited and a little anxious to see what these next few months (and next semester) bring. I am going to try to document my journey a little bit more (mostly for my own benefit) and continue putting everything into perspective.
