1. This quote:
"If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise."
— Robert FritzMmm.. this spoke in incredible ways to me this week, especially as I have been a little stressed and anxious about planning my summer internship... and that's all I will say about that.
2. A new blog.
I'm starting a new blog; it's an idea I had around New Years, but this far all I have is a template and a few ideas. It's called "Lost in Love" and you can check it out HERE. I'll hold you in suspense by keeping the topic a secret, but hopefully one of my ideas will turn into words in the next few days, and I'll have a real post.
3. Drop Like Stars by Rob. Bell
Drop Like Stars is "an exploration of the complex relationship between suffering and creativity, driven by the belief that there is art in the agony." Bell is very contemporary and very insightful. You may know him well for Noomas, his series of short films that explore our world from a perspective of Jesus. They are so so so good, I love love love them! See HERE to read a blog I wrote in response to one Nooma, or see Nooma.com. Anyways, below is a picture of the cover and a picture of page 4. The book is 12"x10" [interesting right?] and the layout is pretty unique.
4. Ultrasound pictures
[No, not mine.] My sister is 21 weeks pregnant and had ultrasounds pictures taken this week. As they did with their first, Joni and Jeff have chosen to not know the gender. Click HERE to see more pictures from Joni's blog.
It's the end of the first week of the second semester of my junior year. "Syllabi review" should be an easy day, and it is, but it certainly is overwhelming. Last semester was ridiculously stressful, and I'm hopeful that this semester won't find me in the Emergency Room with any stress-related conditions [as other semesters have in the past.] Although in addition to the business, I do anticipate much growth and learning. I have a good line of classes and I'm pretty excited about most of them. I'm also excited about really getting to know the girls on my Mozambique team this semester, especially as we will begin our weekly meetings soon.
