life lately.

My life has been insanely crazy lately. like crazy.

Up until now I've been working, taking classes, running, planning this trip to Mexico (which if you haven't read my post below, you should!), tailgating in the very unusual September cold.

God has been doing many good things in my life lately. I think one of them is helping me survive the semester. For the first month of class I didn't even have time to unpack in my new apartment because I was constantly going somewhere or doing something. I came home to sleep and that was about it. Senioritis is beginning to hit hard. It's difficult for me to keep up with the reading for each class that I have and to do the homework. I don't even want to think about most of the stuff I have to do by December.

God has blessed me with amazing friends who know exactly how I feel right now. Sharisse came to my apartment the other night and said, "Aubrie, I barely have time to think, I'm three weeks behind on reading in this class, I come home just to sleep, I haven't had time to go running, AHHHHH!!!!"

Exactly how I feel. Exactly.

Something God's been teaching me: my plans may not be his plans.

"We can make our own plans,
but the Lord gives the right answer." - Prov. 16:1

Honestly, I have no idea where I'm going in my life. None. Zip. And for some reason I become less afraid every day.

Gosh. I really want to write something REALLY good. And it's not that nothing good is going on. I'm loving my life right now. Just tough to put everything into words I guess.

My new apartment is GREAT. It's quiet. It's cheap. We have our own washer and dryer with water paid for by the landlord. When the washer is spinning it's SUPER loud and shakes the entire floor, but whatever. It works. And my room is spacious.

Oh, I forgot. My friends and I watched a documentary the other night called Paperclips. If you haven't watched it, watch it. It brought up some good conversation and thoughts among us.

I can't wait for the day I can fill this blog with more than just random crap about me. I want to write about other people, so I have tried, as you can see. But I really want to write. Just gotta find something that people want to read.
