Once upon a time, a girl with sunlight in her hair
Walked beneath the dome and said she'd never go.
But that was once upon a time, very long ago.
This week has been a rollercoaster of emotions. Although I will still be enrolled as a Judson student, I will not be living on campus anymore after this week. The idea of living somewhere else is extremely overwhelming. Not only will I be away from what has become my home, but I will be on the other side of the world very soon. I am SUPER excited about this new adventure, but with every new and exciting journey there is something lost.
I know that what is to come is going to be more than I can imagine right now. I know it will be an experience of a lifetime. I mean I am going to AUSTRALIA for crying out loud, but I am currently lamenting the lifestyle I love that I know I will never be able to return to again.
I am a completely different person than I was when I first came to Judson- in a good way. When I got here, I was so timid. I wouldn't dare try anything if I thought I could fail. Slowly over the past few years it has changed. My life has become open to new possibilities and I am dreaming more than I ever did before. The dreams I have for myself now have been birthed out of this school that I have grown to love. It has become such an important part of my daily life.
I am so grateful for my time here. It has been amazing living in community with my closest friends! Now I must embark on another exciting adventure. I hope you will take the journey with me as I post about my experiences!
Once upon a time, a girl much older than before
Stood beneath an oak with teardrops in her eyes,
But that was once upon a time; now it is goodbye.
