still here. still in maui. and still baking myself daily. pretty great, if you ask me.

but also ready to come home. ready to go through my stuff (TLC Clean Sweep style...will be SUPER fun...planning on have SELL/KEEP/TOSS piles and everything). ready to see jon again. ready to see little puff-ball again. ready to eat a big fatty popsicle. ready to just lay on my huge beanbag and soak in being home.

excited for hugs. for new scrapbooking stuff i am planning on getting when i'm in spokane ( can come with could be fun--wink wink). excited for life on the mainland. cuz guess what!?! it is different than here.

really praying about mission work. God planted a seed in my heart about 8 years ago...and its been steadily growing since then. itching to get to school...excited to learn about the human body (but still coveting prayers for motivation). ready to use my hands and heart to help those in need.......

all in all: i am just thankful today. reality is sinking in that i am done at GU. that i am moving across the country. that i am turning a new page. and i'm excited to read what is on it. excited for trips this summer. excited to move in to my cute little guest house. excited to see what adventures God has in store for me; becuase guess what!?! i am SURE there are plenty.

praying for motivation. for wisdom and discernment. for purity and a continually guarded heart. for honesty and optimism. and for time and confidence: in relationships, in repairing relationships, in maintaining friendships, in spending intimate time with the Creator of the Universe.

it still blows my mind that i can do that. that i can sit down and talk to the One who made every living thing on this Earth. the One who handcrafted each blade of grass and sprinkles each raindrop in precisely the spot He chooses. the One who raises mountains and hugs orphans...the One who has enough time to throw galaxies into place and listen to my heart. WOW.

and on a totally new note....WOW are these beautiful women i have the privledge of calling my sisters....

checking in. blogging in.

school is over. i am officially alumni @ Gonzaga. i am officially feeling older than ever. it is still all so surreal. so unreal that i was there for 4 years. that i learned SO much. that i now know so little.

and giving credit properly where credit is due, i'm lifting it alllll up to the One and Only....the Man with the Plan. so much anticipation...anxiety...and yeah, i'll admit it: fear. of what the future holds...of what it might not hold. scary--life, i mean. but nonetheless satisfying knowing that it is all planned in advance by the Ruler of the Universe Himself.

i'm trusting. totally trusting. because, guess what!?! it is all that i can do.

all that i can do
is hold onto you
and follow where you lead
where you're leading me
all that i can do
is hold onto you
and let you bring me through
it's all that i can do

and on another note...or blog, rather, you will find updates on my current travel :) check this out (if you'd like to know):

worth at least a mouthful

can't really seem to make my brain work right now--or so it seems to me. it might be kinda full with study-material...or other stuff. SO ready to be done right now....finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on what i am supposed to be doing. less than 48 hours and i will, technically, be done . that is crazy to me--absolutely crazy...that i have been here 4 years. that i started high school almost 8 years ago. feeling older every second.

thought i'd illustrate the pieces of my life since friday in pictures.... reason being that i haven't had much to say lately--brain is apparently in hibernation ;)

Mary & Jake got engaged on Friday...surprise engagement party (planned so sneakily by Jake @ Catacombs)

Big Al's night on Friday night--SOOOO fun!! and i think my date was pretty cool too ;)...okay okay he was awesome!

(can i put these on here?!?!) lil' surprise for the coolest dude (and most patient dude this week....especially with me!!) on saturday morning. i think the pictures are relatively self-explanatory....

followed up our visit to Merlyn's with a trip to Costco for sampling and lunch....

hung out with Brad later on Saturday. watched Anchorman. nap. bed. :)

sunday = homework, church, photo developing, a WONDERFUL walk with a wonderful guy, starbucks (yum!), and studying....

....and today was filled with studying (but not enough of it), taking my books back to the bookstore (i was 1st in line!!!), starbucks (okay i admit it), double checking my box of 87 graduation announcements i am sending out tomorrow, and a nap (you'd think i was 2 years old again or something).

LOTS more to do tomorrow. meeting in the morning. reviewing. appoitment tomorrow early afternoon. and then i'll just be stuck in my apartment---studying my brains out :)

well. writing again. only thing is, don't really have much to write about. and weirdly, SO much has been happening that i feel i should have something to write about. but life is good. i am content.

just basking in my content-ness.

oh, and the beautiful sunshine outside.
