Getting Settled All Over Again

My team being photobombed by another behind us at
retreat, haha.
The past few days have been so busy and hectic for me! I moved into my new dorm room on Sunday, and the day after I left right away for a Student Leadership Retreat from Monday to Thursday in the San Bernardino Mountains. I came back Thursday afternoon and caught up with my old roommate and hung out with her as she moved into her new room. Friday was filled with training for my new job (I'm an intern in the Diversity Programming Dept), catching up with some friends, and running errands at Target, the go-to store for everyone at my school.

I spent most of this week away at retreat, and I must say that it was really nice to have a chance to be away from school and the city for a while. God really is working on me and is revealing himself to me, little by little. I was so blessed to be alongside everyone there and to truly feel his presence and to be humbled by it. I also got to know my Diversity Team really well and have loved laughing and crying with them as we all shared our life stories to each other this week. It has definitely strengthened our bond as a team and as friends.
Finally reunited with my old roommate!

On the other hand, my room is slowly coming together... Everything is unpacked, it's now just a matter or organizing and decorating. My dad and sister are coming by later today to bring some things I forgot at home, and my roommate is coming tonight to bring some of her stuff so she can slowly start moving in (she doesn't officially move in for another week) and we can start figuring out what to do with the space. I'm so excited to be back and living at school again, but now I just feel a little overwhelmed with all I have yet to do.

This upcoming week is going to be pretty busy as well. I have more training for my new job coming up and Music Camp all next week as well! I sing for the Women's Chorus, so everyone who is getting a music scholarship and participating in a musical ensemble needs to come to Music Camp. If you are involved with another activity on campus (like I am) you have to go back and forth between activities. I'm not so sure how I feel about running across campus every day between camp and trainings but it should be interesting, haha. I have one more week until school starts but it definitely feels like it's coming sooner.

I hate that I haven't been able to post much this week and that I haven't posted a new video on my YouTube channel either. However, I do promise to work on writing and creating a new video to post up sometime this week! Until then, if you'd like to keep up with what I'm doing, check out my Twitter and Instagram to see what I'm doing on a daily basis.


  1. Cool pics and recap, I've always wanted to go to a retreat. It sounds fun!
