I have had a very eventful few weeks since I have been back in the US. Almost as soon as I got home, I got my sub license. I can now substitute teach in Baldwin County. So far this part time job has kept me extremely busy. God has really shown me how much he wants to take care of me simply by providing work. I was slightly concerned that I wouldn’t be able to make it subbing but the Lord has been with me through every day. It has been great to be back in the classroom again and I hope that I am “getting my foot in the door” in the county. I would really like to get a job somewhere near here next fall. Overall I would say that all of that is going very well.
When I get home from subbing, I have the opportunity to check my Facebook. As far as I can tell the Judson College girls are in the middle of midterms right now. WOW, I am so happy that I am not in the middle of HUGE TESTS! But then again I miss it a little bit. I don’t know what to do with this extra time that I have. YES! After graduating college I found out what it is like to have no lesson planing to do and zero papers to write. It is amazing to me what college students are capable of doing. The amount of work that they have and the amount of time they have to be with their friends is incredible.
So what I am saying is that on one hand I am happy to be out of college and away from the STRESS that it brings... On the other hand I miss JC a TON! I want to see my friends there. I want to catch up on the things that happened during the day over dinner with 75 of my JC sisters. I want to complain about the huge midterm paper that is due in 12 hours and I haven’t even picked a topic for it yet. I want to laugh with my roommate because she is dancing all around the room for no apparent reason...
What I am saying is that I miss Judson.
I miss the relationships that I built at JC!
I am so thankful for my sisters there and I can’t wait to see what the next chapter of my life will be, but it is hard not to look back and to long for a piece of what I had in little old Marion, Alabama.
What an IMPACT Judson College made on my life. I am so proud to call myself a JC girl and now I am excited to take what I learned at JC and to apply it to life in “the real world.”
