Your senior year is truly one of the most important times of your life. You'll make some of the best memories, as well as some of the biggest decisions you've ever made before. In preparing for your last year of high school, know that the coming season is full of newness, but that the same God is by your side in all of it (Hebrews 13:8). As you look ahead & consider your faith, this blog is for you. Here are some eternal truths to remember & encouragements to cling to.
I didn't picture myself writing this blog at home. As I sat at the dining room table, cornbread browned in the oven, NFL football blared from the living room, and the trees sparkled with frozen crystals of ice in the sunlight. I was supposed to be in Clinton, snuggled on the love seat in my tiny apartment, savoring a hot cup of tea, only a stone's throw from the campus that I have called home for nearly four years. That was the setting I imagined writing about my last first day of class, yet things change. The fact that my last first day has come announces this truth: things do, in fact, change. This day signifies that what once began will draw to a close.
Senior year is here, and if you are like me (I'm also a senior, except in college), you feel a bit overwhelmed and as if you have no idea of what you are doing. Lucky for you, I have been a senior in high school (and have enlisted the help of the awesome admissions counselor, Michelle Ladner), so I'm here to help you figure out what in the world you should be doing right now.
Facebook memories have been hitting me hard recently. With less than nine months left at Mississippi College, I am constantly being reminded of the best memories from the past three years, and I would be lying if I said that part of me wasn't wishing that I could go back to being a freshman. I would also be lying if I told you that these memories from my time at MC don't make me tear up a little.
Hello friends, it's your favorite graduating senior, Elizabeth, and I'd be lying if I said I'm excited about writing this blog. I started working in the Tower during the fall of 2012 as a caller, and then for the past two years I've gotten to work on the blog! I've genuinely loved this job and have made some priceless memories with co-workers that have become my best friends.
Ok, let’s cut to the chase. I know that all of you juniors and seniors are starting to get to that age old question. It comes in many forms … “What do you want to do with your life?”, “What are you planning to major in?”, “What do you want to do when you grow up?”, “What is your plan for the future?” Let me be the first to welcome you to this wonderful stage of life called “young adulthood.” It is a stage of transition, of finding yourself, of exploring, and of seeking the Lord’s will. I know because I have just been there myself.
