I have lots to do today! I’m leaving for Washington D.C. tomorrow for a week to do some mission work and work in a soup kitchen. Along with that, we are going to see a Nationals baseball game, tour the White House and other things. I am somewhat excited. When I get home from Washington, I have exactly two weeks and two days left before I move back to Greenville and into my apartment! I CAN’T WAIT. Never thought I would ever be this ready and this excited to go back. It sucks though because I haven’t seen my friends that much this month. My brother, grandma and cousin are in Brazil right now with some people from church, including our pastor’s family because that is where is wife is originally from, doing some mission work. He says the weather is nice down there, the beds are comfy and he’s having a good time. I AM SO JEALOUS. Anywho, it’s off to run errands for me.
“I dont view myself as a victim. I dont even view myself as a survivor. Living in truth has opened up doors to me that i never could have imagined existed. I feel proud to be where i am today, with my head held high. Im just me. No more. No less. Just ‘Julia’”—daddy’s little girl - julia latchem-smith (via quote-book)
“I am Rosemary’s granddaughter, the spitting image of my father and when the day is done, my momma’s still my biggest fan. Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy, but I’ve got friends who love me and they know just where I stand. It’s all a part of me, and that’s who I am.”—Jessica Andrews (Who I am)
I never thought I would ever say that I am ready to move back to Greenville. Last week, I got my apartment information and I’m just ready to be back out of excitement. Not only that, but this summer in Wilmington has not been what I expected it to be. All last year I kept saying, “I should’ve just gone to UNCW and I would be a lot happier.” But, after this summer, I can hardly wait to get back. Yes because of excitement, but also because things are a lot different than I expected it to be. Everyone came back changed. Which was expected. Not only that, many people are not as close as they used to be. You know, coming back to Wilmington for summer, I was so happy and couldn’t wait to see everyone but it just isn’t the same. It’s time to move on and make some more changes. Coming back to a summer filled with UNNECESSARY drama is the last thing I want. I know who my true friends are. The ones who don’t talk behind my back and the ones who will actually listen to what I have to say and understand. Not the ones who will act like they understand and then go make fun behind my back. I am so over everyone acting like high schoolers. We are in college now. You would’ve thought everyone would have matured a little. Guess I was wrong.
“Whenever I look around, I always learn one thing. And that thing is: Always be yourself. Express yourself. Have faith In yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate him.”—Bruce Lee (via quote-book)
