You guys… This year has been absolutely insane. Just this spring semester I was living it up in New York City! (I still can’t believe that actually happened!) Of course, there was a global pandemic that ended my adventure rather abruptly, but I will have great stories to tell my kids one day.
Although the universe has been giving me every reason to drop out of school and give up, I have chosen to listen to a voice of higher authority. The one thing that has not wavered through all of this year’s events is the very powerful and evident voice of God.
This season has taught/is teaching me to always listen to God’s voice. There is a big difference between hearing and listening.
After I got home and New York shut down I started to lose hope. Originally I had wanted to stay at King’s and planned to one day graduate from that school. The professors I had there were the best ones I think I’ll ever have, the people there were the most genuine I’ve ever met, and the culture in that city was more fun than I could ever have imagined.
Although the thought of being a city girl was appealing, I’ve decided to take the dirt road back to the midwest. In just under two weeks I’ll be moving into my new dorm at Oklahoma State University! I could not be more excited to go to the school with the most beautiful campus in the Midwest and proudly wear America’s brightest orange.
I will be the third generation of the Farris family to attend OSU along with my cousin and best friend, Hannah Farris.
This year has been a wild one, but my sense of adventure is still intact. A global pandemic isn’t going to get in my way. Neither will mysterious seeds…
Anyways, here’s to an amazing semester surrounded by amazing people!
