the GOOD, the bad, and the ugly

I really probably should wait until I have pictures to put up, but...when do I ever do things in the right order? I just could not wait until I have that kind of time to write about the awesomeness that I have been experiencing for the past week. Yes, a whole week now. I have lived in Tempe for a whole week now!!! And what a glorious week it has been. Yes, it has been full of trials, but the good times certainly outweigh the bad ones. I am so incredibly blessed! I am living with Ashley Jungbluth and Madison Taets...two of the most amazing girls I have ever met. Seriously, it was absolutely ridiculous for me to believe that I couldn't get any closer to them than I already was...because I feel closer and closer to them every day. They are my family--my sisters. (Okay, so sometimes I call Madison "Mom"...but only sometimes.) And I know the best is yet to come. I love them more than I can even express.

And Abby is back from Florida! I am extraordinarily happy that she is back. She makes my life 500 times happier....especially when she laughs (which seems to be a common occurance). As was the same with Ashley and Madison, I have grown even closer to Abby since she has gotten back. (Shoot, our little crying sessions do us wonders!:)

Along with moving back to Tempe, however, there comes the good, the bad, and the ugly. I know it is a little early to say, but I am a little concerned about the excitement factor of this semester. I have yet to find a class boring, but psychology research methods is the closest it's come. Granted, today was only my second day attending that class, but....I am definitely concerned. I love psychology, but research methods? I know it will help in the years to come (as I move on to graduate school), but this semester will be very interesting (in the least interesting sense of that word). Oh well! I love learning, so I'll just try to soak it all up and be content. Institute, of will be absolutely amazing. As always. No worries there.

In a nutshell, there are some things that I have already determined about this semester, the first being: it's not gonna be easy. In fact, it's going to be really, really hard--and that's classes aside. The second thing I've determined: even though it's gonna be really hard, it's going to be completely worth it. I am already learning so much. And the main thing I've determined: God is in control....He really is. So why am I worrying anyway?
