I went to spokane this weekend for a WONDERFUL conference with the Krista Foundation. I was lucky enough to be selected as a colleague, and it was such a good weekend. Everyone there has committed to a year of service that they have already come back from, are in the middle of, or are about to embark upon. It just feels like everyone speaks the same language as me there. I didnt have to explain why I loved the things I love, and everyone just seemed to intrinsically understand. I felt like I could breathe with them. Kindred spirits. I know I will be friends with a lot of them for years and years to come. There is comfort in that.

18 days until graduation. I cant believe it. So much to do between now and then. So many goodbyes and "I dont know when I will see you next's".

As I reflect back on these last four years I am certain of two things:
1. God does not make mistakes
2. He is absolutely and completely creative in his faithfulness to me.

I have been so blessed by the remarkable journey I have been on. I had no idea coming to school I would become who i am now, I didn't know I would become interested in AIDS and have my heart broken over and over in Africa...than go back for more because one trip just didn't seem to be enough. I didn't know I was passionate about politics and that I would live in DC working for my dream organization for a quarter. I would have laughed if you told me in high school about the people I would be connected with, and the deepness of the friendships I have formed. And I had no clue I would end college having taken the LSAT and ready to move to Chicago to work under an incredible organization for a year. What a trip.

I feel so satisfied with what I have done. I am SO EXCITED for what is next. I am going to prove that college is not the best years of your life. My college experience has been INCREDIBLE, but now the real work starts and I get to do all the things I have been waiting for.
