I want to be so in love with God that all I think about is Him.
I want to be so obsessed with God that every action I make is for Him.
I want to be so engrossed in God's love that the only thing I can do is to share it.
I want to be so extraordinarily grateful for God's love that I just want to praise him 24/7.
I want to be so crazy about God that all that's on my mind is serving Him.
I want to be transformed through God's love to act, think, and be just like God in all of his amazing characteristics.

I just came from an InterVarsity Worship Night where all the major schools in Boston get together and worship/share stores about their experiences on campus. The worship was the best I've ever experienced and I really really hope heaven feels like that. It was so amazing to be surrounded by strangers who had only one focus: God. I felt united with every student/staff there even though I didn't know any of them. There was so much joy, raw emotion, and truth in every lyric that I sung tonight, which hasn't happened in a really long time. I'm grateful for all that God has given me and I'm excited to be changed through Jesus. I'm hoping that this transformation can bring me to share with everybody around me in my classes, in my workplace, and in my living spaces. We're given such a great opportunity to be in a young college town full of eager students looking and searching for a happy life. Why not share with them the experience of true love through Christ?

I Miss Classes

I miss the feeling of finally completing a hard semester and being done, even if only for a little bit.  I remember last year, after my last final, I ran on Huntington with my arms held high and I could actually feel all of my stress, agony, and to-do lists lift away.  I felt like nothing in the world could destroy me because I just completed my first complete year of college.  If I could label one night as the best night of my life, that would be it.  I had an amazing job to look forward to in the summer, I had no more organic chemistry to ever worry about, and life was the best it could ever get.
Here I am now.  Stressed, agonized, and full of to-do lists on co-op. Ugh.

Blog from the Ashes

I decided to scrap my old blog because it was linked to my old gmail account that I no longer use and signing in and out is just a pain.  I guess it's kind of like a fresh start to everything.  I can reinvent myself and recreate new memories and new reflections on life.  Sure, maybe not everybody reads this, but there will be somewhere in the land of internet where my thoughts can lay, live, and thrive.

It's been a year since I completed my first full year of college and I could not be any more grateful to God, the ultimate provider.  I had a very successful Fall semester where I studied hard and ended up on the Dean's List (finally)!  I made amazing friends this past summer as an Orientation Leader, and now I'm on co-op at a chemistry lab in Watertown, MA where I work with a ton of other engineer co-ops that are the greatest people on this planet.  I've learned and grown so much in maturity, physiology, and spirituality.  God has taught me so much and has brought me through so much this year and I think I've fallen deeper and deeper in love.  I'm going to be on Vision Team next Fall where I will be much more involved in the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter at NU; it will be time-consuming but oh so fulfilling.  I'm so happy with my life and what has been given to me this past year, and I'm super excited with what God has to offer this upcoming year.

I want to keep this blog as a constant reminder to myself of what I'm learning and feeling throughout my college career.  Sure, I do have some blog posts on my Tumblr, but that's all buried deep within a pile of memes and silly pictures.  I want a blog solely based on my pure and raw thoughts.  So this is it.  Enjoy!
