I am not good at being lazy all day. Being sick has done that for me. (It's not the flu). I hate being home alone because it forces me to think/ reflect pn my life. Which I hate because it makes me have to be honest about how I'm doing.
In high school I really wanted to come to a Christian uuniversity. I was scared to death that I would go to college and turn into this party girl. So I was really shooting for a university that would most likely have people that would keep me accountable. Well I chose a school that has a fantastic education department and a town that has a billion churches on every street. So I am covered. I have gone to a Christian school my whole life. I considered going to public school when I got to high school but I really felt that God wanted me to stay at RRCA because there were people there that needed to be reached. Well at Hardin-Simmons there are people that need to be reached here. To be honest, I don't feel like I have really put forth the effort to reach them. I have been so focused on my walk with God and coming up with my life plan for the next five years. I enjoy hanging out with my cChristian friends, going to my bible studies, helping out at church and eating my christian mints (just kidding, I don't have those things).
When I was a senior in high school, ready to embark on my new adventure as a college freshman, I was so sure I would change the world, or at least Abilene. Two and a half years later I realized that I haven't even tried. I can't honestly say I have made the effort to get to know non-christian people. I realize that I have not made a difference here. That to me is tragic. I do have a couple of years to make up for it. It's terrifying putting this into words because now it means people need to keep me accountable. Words seem pointless unless you put them into action.
P.S. The title for this blog come from Beauty and the Beast. It doesn't have a whole lot to do with this blog but I just really like that movie.
