25% Reflection

The passing of Fall Break means we're about half-wayish done with the semester.

Fall Break was great. The first part (Friday through Sunday) was my second Fall Conference. I can't really say which was better, because I just felt it was perfect for what I need right now. I need reflection, which is not hard to do when you are up in the mountains with an hour dedicated to meditating while on a snow-covered bleacher. I need direction, which is more complicated and only comes from God. Or rather, it should. And rest and friends and good times playing whiffleball were extra. 

The second part was great as well. I got like eleven hours of sleep each night in my comfy bed in my own room. I got to relax with family and do homework. It was good.

It's been a great semester, it really has. It hasn't been particularly difficult, although I know more difficult times are ahead. I just feel...content. I do homework, and I'm happy I get to do this under the big M. I'm constantly busy learning, working, making time to hang out with friends, helping out younger friends, and just taking in the awesome while not letting the difficult haunt me. Or trying not to. And yes, I do sleep.

I need to continue to work on my time-management. I need to find an internship. I need to work on being healthier. I need to figure out if I want to pick up a minor. And I'd like to make some strange but awesome random memories. And maybe meet more people. And not be satisfied, constantly pushing forward. 

Yeah, let's do that.
