It’s all part of the ride.

Alternately titled: Oh right, I still have a blog.

I got an email from the domain host saying, “Hey, you still want your blog name, right?” And that’s when I realized I haven’t written on my blog for 6 months. My apologies to the thousands of you who check daily to see what fascinating new content I’ve posted here. (If that’s you, I say this with love: get a life.)

Anyway, since I last wrote a blog post, I completed a semester of graduate school. It was fantastic, and very challenging. I pulled a lot of all-nighters… those come with the package.

Other things that have happened since I last wrote a blog post: I turned twenty-one, traveled to Atlanta on a mission trip, won a swing dancing competition (it wasn’t as big of a deal as it sounds), listened to a lot of mind-rotting pop music, went to a Broadway play, had a boyfriend, broke up with aforementioned boyfriend, bought a Crock Pot, read a lot of books, and dressed up like a Christmas elf at least 5 times. Oh, and 40 students called me Miss Johnson this semester.

This life is an adventure, y’all. (Oh, and I say “y’all” now.) Learning is exciting (most especially when you’re learning about subjects you care about), people are fascinating, and stuff gets challenging. You mess up, you receive grace, you show grace, and you keep on loving people.  It’s all a part of the ride.

So, that’s where I’m at. Holding on for dear life, pretending I’m having a blast at all times (and actually having a blast most of the time). My blog is still here (though I can’t promise any more frequent posts), and I’m still having adventures. Onward and upward.

Love from Carissa.
