and a summer draws to a close…

Classes start for me tomorrow, which means that tonight is the last night of the summer.

it seems so surreal that summer has come to an end… it seriously went by so fast it’s kind of ridiculous..

i haven’t really done much this summer other than beach week, hangout with people, retreat, urban hands…

but i guess three months goes by so fast when you’re just chillin

am I excited for classes? no.

am I excited for new things to happen? yes.

not really sure how this semester’s going to play out…

it’s officially my “second year” at UVa, so i’m not a noob anymore…

my goals for the year?

hmm… to invest time wisely…  honestly there’s so much free time in college its crazy… i think being in a school environment, it’s really easy to get fixated on yourself, and yourself only… to focus on your own achievements, own grades, own struggles, own growth… which isn’t necessarily a bad thing… but when we focus on ourselves too much, we blind ourselves to so much more thats going around us… i was praying the other day and i kept having this prayer to have a selfless heart like jesus… to see what he saw, to go where he went, to pray what he prayed… to invest in things that matter… and people matter…

and to take steps of faith you know?  to find peace, despite not knowing where things are headed, how things are going to turn out… to find comfort in knowing that we don’t have to have everything figured out…

here we gooo
