GO BELMONT!

Today has been a very good day. I was asked to be a Belmont blogger and found out that I'll be getting an additional scholarship, which is (needless to say) wonderful news! God is so faithful! And, once again, He is showing me that the more I lean on Him, the better life gets. 

I feel so blessed to be at Belmont this year. It feels like I'm really getting excited and involved about everything going on on campus. I loved it. 

Being an RA is a little more challenging in a freshman dorm than it was in the Commons over the summer. As hard as it is to answer the same question one hundred times in a row and write people up for violations, I really do enjoy getting to know the girls on my floor and all of the Maddox/Wright kids. More than anything, as an RA, I hope that I don't just teach these girls where the Inman Health Science Building is, but show them what it means to be a Christlike example not only here at Belmont but for the rest of their lives. 

Not to mention, the Wright/Maddox staffs are absolutely wonderful. I'm really looking forward to our year working together and I really feel like I have gained some new sisters and brothers. It's wonderful and I love them all!

Also, my sister is a freshman this year and I love having her here! It's been wonderful as she transitions in life to be able to see here for ten minutes here and there without having to plan it and just discuss life/assignments/everything. 

All in all, I really think it's going to be a great year!
