Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:25-26

Final evening

Tonight is the last night of my life that I will not be a Magnet Alumni. Tomorrow evening, I will walk across the stage, receive my empty diploma cover (get the diploma later), and be a high school graduate.


Yes, I'm ready for this moment of my life, and yes I've been waiting for it for quite a while, but it's like Christmas when you're little: it seems like it will never actually get here. And then it does. And it's weird. See, it just always seemed natural for those older than me to be a step ahead of me. Now I'm "catching up" to them by being in college too. Wait, hold on. COLLEGE?! I have never been nervous about college until this moment. My stomach just did flips. I can't imagine me actually in college. It doesn't seem like I should fit in. I'm too young... right? This is so weird!! I'm 5 months from being 19, less than 4 months from starting my fall quarter, and graduating high school in less than 24 hours. This is nuts. Absolutely nuts.

Time to rest up because the last few days have been insanely busy and tomorrow is no exception.

You will do GREAT in college and have a BLAST. And you'll have even more fun than the average student there because you've got a good head on your shoulders and God in your heart - that's the REAL way to have fun. That kind of fun doesn't lead to hangovers or unwanted pregnancies or emotional ties with idiot guys. =)

I'm so proud of you and Gaelin!!!

You're going to rock college, girl. No worries. It is weird how fast time flies though huh? It seems like I was just teaching Gaelin in sixth grade sunday school at SGBC.
