There comes a point in everyone's life when you feel like it is your turn to fly. It is your turn to do something more than just the ordinary. I have lived around this town all my life. I love it. However, thankfully, I believe if in a year I do not get a job around here, I will be OK.
The last time I felt like this was the summer between my freshman and sophomore years. I had decided it would be best if I went to OBU. At the present time, I had no clue what I was going to do with my major, if I would make much money, and had basically talked myself into thinking I hadn't made such a wise decision going into something I still had so many questions about. I thought OBU would put a little more distance between the parents and myself and allow me to further and deepen my relationship with Christ because I would be surrounded by Christians. I had talked to some of the admissions reps and was going to major in secondary education. Once again, I am beyond grateful that my God directs my path not I.
I am about to start my senior year, and I still don't know what I want to do with my degree. Not because jobs are absent, but because there is so much to do! As for money...I hope that isn't where my happiness comes from. I have been blessed by the many people who have came into my life while I have been at college. The opportunities and the activities I have been involved in have made my experience here indescribable. Sometimes those have been more beneficial than classes...haha...it is true though. Real-world application at its best :)
Whether I am blessed to stay around this town after a year or if it is time to go somewhere else, I think I am ready to see where God takes me. Until then, I will seize every opportunity until the time comes to move on.
