Spring 2016 in Review

It's that time of year again!! The classic "semester in review" blog post. Seems cheesy I know, but I enjoy putting these together to have a quick look back on my semester and to get a little bit sentimental.

College friends: I miss you dearly and I can't wait to hug all of you in August :)

Here we go! Some of them might be out of order... oops. Actually probably the majority of them will be out of order because the folders on my computer are all jumbled up. Oops again. :)

 Sunrise time this semester was always super refreshing.

 Many of you may be INCREDIBLY surprised that I played on an intramural basketball team this semester, but these buds accepted me for my lack of basketball skills. We never won any games, but we always entertained the other team.

 ROOTED had a fellowship morning at Lake Boomer. This is the sunrise, people!!!! Waking up early was 100000% worth it that morning. Also I got to do this American Eagle ad with Travis so that was worth it too.

 Those 5 pictures above ^^^ are from my favorite memory of college so far. Over Spring Break a group of 13 of us went to Guatemala. The people there taught me to do things whole-heartedly and to always keep a smile on your face. In the grand scheme of things, does it really matter if you got an A or a B in that class you took last semester? I also learned the importance of sharing quality time with people, because it is through those moments that the Lord is able to shine through you. Spread love!!! Our lifetime on this earth is soooooo so so soooo short, and it is important to spend the small amount of time we have loving on people. When you look at it that way, life can seem pretty simple. This last black and white picture is from the last night we were in Guatemala. We had a cookout on the grounds where we had been staying that week, and this is the group praying before our meal. I am already searching for another time to go back, because I'm sure of it that this wasn't the last time I'll be stepping foot on that land.

 Katherina, Ally and I were very close to missing our flight from Guatemala (SUPER long, funny story), so the workers of the airport told us to "act sick" and they pushed us through customs, security, and all the way through the airport to our gate where the rest of our team was already on the plane. When we ran onto the plane, the people cheered (mainly our team) and I have never seen Megan Adams cry so hard. WE MADE IT.

 This is a real life picture of my bin that went through security on the way to Guatemala. I wanted Chick Fil A to be my last American meal before our trip (naturally), so I even carried it through security. That is Chick Fil A sauce in my baggie with my hand sanitizier and lotion. I mean, it IS liquid... #LifeOfAChickFilAAddict

 Speakers Board at Oklahoma State has given me an incredible opportunity to take pictures of the events that they host. This semester, I was able to take pictures of Leigh Anne Tuohy, Bennet Omalu, and James Franco.

 We ended the very last day of school with a bonfire at McMurtry on a super clear night. This was one of my favorite things. My friends are all going off this summer to do incredible things, and I can't wait to see how we have grown and what we have learned when we all reunite. :-) shoutout to my friends. you guys are so cool. I'm so proud of all of you.
