Waiting for my flight in the SLC airport….

It’s so wonderful to be completely done, well, almost completely done. I still have to submit my summary of my final New Testament project (which probably means I should finish memorizing the sermon on the mount) and write a reflection for work – but other than that … It’s Christmas break!I believe a celebration is in order. I’ve concluded that Christmas vacation is so much better in college: Not only do you get to see people you’ve been missing for months but you have absolutely nothing that you have to do – no assignments – no reading – no homework – no papers – not tests – nothing.

I am so excited to be going home. The difference from last year is that I’m not excited to leave Utah – I’m just excited to be going home (I’ve come a long way in a year). I haven’t seen any of my family since August and that is much too long. I love how easy it is to be with family – how confident I am in their love for me that nothing else really matters. I love the example they set for me and what they teach me about service, love, and myself.

Something I regretfully concluded recently: I am far too stubborn. I’d like to think that I often make decisions for good reasons – but when the reason is simply so I don’t have to give in, admit that I’m wrong, admit someone else is right – its semi-problematic. I like being right too much (good thing usually I am :P) – next semester I’ll start with humility 101.
Something someone else concluded about me recently: I have “connection and commitment issues.”
