Well hello hello! I feel as if I have been a tad MIA for the past couple of days. I had my first guest bloggers the other night, Mariel and Michelle. Aren't they the sweetest? I didn't really have much motivation that night, and they wanted to write something for me. I was a little unsure of what that would be, but I loved it. Isn't it so nice to be thankful for such sweet people? Last night, it just got way to late. As I have said before, I am trying to get to bed early, and when it gets past a certain time I have to keep myself from staying up even later to post. I am trying to be a little more grown up or something like that? But no worries, I am here now, and I am thankful to be. You see, the last couple of days have been full of some cool opportunities. TCU is good at providing these.
First, I am currently enrolled in this freshman seminar class that helps freshman better transition into adult world. Not that I need tons of help, but I thought it sounded cool. It has been pretty cool so far, and one thing that really shocked me was one of our assignments. We have to read two books of our choosing. We get to pick. I get to pick what I read. I can't remember that last time I actually read something because I wanted to. I love reading and always have, but when you have to devote so much time to reading text books or other books because you teacher says so, I lose interest. It makes reading not fun. When my professor said we get to pick, I was shocked! I was excited because I typically keep a running list of books that I want to read, that I know I will probably actually never have time to read, but now I can pick two books off of that list and run with them. So the first book I have picked is the Ellen Degeneres book because I mean who doesn't love Ellen? So needless to say, I am looking forward to so reading on my own terms!
Second, part of the reason I needed to go to bed early last night was because I had a Student Foundation retreat this morning at 10 that would basically last all day... I felt it was best for me to get to sleep! Student Foundation is a club on campus that does lots of great things for the community of frogs. The most important thing is their responsibility in guiding tours on a regular basis. This has been something I always wanted to do, and today I officially finished my tour training! I will be giving my first tour this coming Friday! I am super excited! It is a big responsibility, but I know it will be a great one. I spent all day learning some last minute tips to prepare me for the job. I want to have a major impact on those that I introduce to TCU, and I am excited and overly thankful for this opportunity!
TCU is so good about doing things to provided us with great experiences. They go above and beyond with just about everything, and I am so thankful to be at a school that cares so much about its students! I know this may not seem like much, but I am super thankful for these opportunities. The thing I love about a new opportunity is that you never know where they lead. Here I am, on God's path, seeing where all these wonderful opportunities lead. Please excuse me for the last couple of days... I was chasing opportunities and being so thankful for them! You should do the same!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
