If you told me I wouldn't blog for over two weeks straight, I would have laughed and tossed my head. Blogging was too big a deal for me to neglect it for so long. Well, well, well, yes, I have been proven wrong. Turns out life can get pretty busy in college. Who knew?
Let it be mentioned that I still have to stop short and remind myself I am included whenever someone says "college students" because I've only had the title about a week now. Let it also be mentioned that moving so far away from home to a place where I know next to no one is the craziest thing I've ever done in my life. However, I don't regret it a bit. In fact, thus far, I love the new life I've jumped into. Meeting complete strangers, living in a new land, chasing after a dream -- all these things are helping me to become a stronger person. The opportunities God's been giving me make me so grateful and giddy with excitement (with a liberal dash of nervousness, of course).
New Mexico has already won a place in my heart. This desert land with it's vast land and jagged mountains -- once so surreal, now an inevitable reality -- is certainly going to be a place of growth (hint, hint: my word of the year).
P.S. People here think I'm Mexican. It's a crack up.
