life off the mountain

is busy. Like, surprisingly really busy.

I have just about a week left at home before I embark on this crazy adventure called college.

Leaving Calvin Crest was really bittersweet. I was ready to get home and see my family, friends, and my cat, not to mention sleep in my own bed, but I wasn't ready to say good-bye to all of the amazing people I met this summer. I'm really going to miss all of the ridiculous memories I've had with everyone, from late night talks and walking to the dark side of the moon, illegal ice cream in the kitchen after hours, riding in the gator and scaring cows while eating chicken quesidillas and leading worship for a thousand different campers.

All in all, God taught me so much this summer, and it was time for me to take what I've learned and put it into action back home. So far, so good. God is going to be present in this move out to Santa Barbara, and I'm excited to what He will show me as I continue seeking after Him through my freshmen year.

So, back to this incredibly busy week...

I have 3 basic things to do before I move to Santa Barbara. But each of them breaks down to about 40 smaller things. 1. Clean out my room/take care of medical stuff 2. Say good-bye to all my friends/the entire city of Dinuba and 3. Buy a bunch of new stuff for college. Like I said, it breaks down to a lot of smaller things.

Tomorrow, I go back to the doctor to get my TB test read, get my teeth checked out by the dentist, and drive to Clovis to spend some time with Rachel Hamlin before she leaves up to Bass Lake. Basically, we're probably going to have some sort of ridiculous adventure in Clovis, and I'm really excited for it. I doubt anything can top the whole, "lets-go-scare-cows-with-greg-in-the-gator-and-also-make-chicken-quesidillas-to-eat-while-we-do-it-plus-it's-like-11:30-at-night" adventure, but I'm sure we'll manage.

Did I mention we also ordered our friendship ukelele? Oh yes, the mailing starts at the end of September, which means I'll have the uke for October. Expect some sort of adorable and funny halloween song to come out of that.

Anyway, I have an early wake up call tomorrow, so I'm hitting the hay.
Bed time. Yes please.
