I truly feel like I was JUST working on the April 2018 Mood Board. Where has the time gone?? One minute I was focusing on capturing the moment in my last month of undergrad, and now I’m about to enjoy my last month of grad school. This is truly crazy, and super hard to wrap my head around! However, it’s happening, and there’s nothing I can do to change it, so I am going to do my best to make the most of it.
This April I am truly going all in. For the first time in few years, I am not going home for Easter. I am going to spend the next four weeks diving in to all that Tuscaloosa has for me. It’s hard to think about how I won’t be returning to this city in the Fall… So, I am embracing the weather, the sights, the people, the food… I know that I’m going to miss it all. This is a bit of a sappy post because I’ve spent the last five years here becoming the person I am today, and now it’s time to move on. I’ve always been a sentimental person, and I am definitely feeling the weight of this transition.
However, I know God led me to this university, this town, and this community for a reason, and I know it wouldn’t be time to leave unless it was. So, I am going to spend my last month focusing on the preparation. I want to be the very best version of me when I leave here. I want to feel ready for what’s next. [Whether or not I know specifically what that is…]
I’m excited to see what’s in store for this short and meaningful season ahead and I’m excited to relish the last bit of time I have left here. Here’s to Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama, and Church of the Highlands. Thank you. You have prepared me for so much, and helped me grow more than I ever knew was possible. I will be forever grateful to you and forever fond of the millions of memories I have here.
April 2019, let’s do this!! ♡
