Another new year is here! Last year, my blog started off with a post about my goals for the year. This year, I'm going to start by seeing how I did with last year's goals. Then, next week, I'll list my goals for this year. So let's get started!
Hey guys. I haven't posted in a long time... It's been a busy past few months. That isn't a very good excuse for not writing, because I have had free time, but I'll get into that. Anyways, a lot has been happening. So, here is a quick update on what has been going on in my life since I stopped reguarly writing.
At the beginning of the fall, I was asked to join the Campus Life leadership team. Basically, what that means is that I will help out at one of their weekly programs (TNT for middle schoolers, or Adventure Club for 3rd-5th graders). Campus Life wanted me to start with Adventure Club, as they do for the other students on the team. But Adventure Club is on Thursday nights, and I am busy every Thursday night. So I got bumped up to TNT, on Tuesday nights, right away.
A few times lately, I have had friends who have been going through troubling things. Naturally, I want to help them, so I ask them how I can. Sometimes, they'll tell me that all I can do is pray. I think about how I wish I could help them more. I always just did it and didn't think twice about it. But recently, I couldn't help but wonder, why do we say "All you can do is pray" as if that isn't that much? Prayer is one of the most powerful things we can do!
Holy cow. I did not realize quite how long it has been since my last blog post. Officially, I haven't posted one since July 18th, which even THAT is a long time. But when I looked back, I haven't made a "normal" post since June!! Today, I want to explain why my blog has been on a break, and why I'm going to bring it back.
Well, as promised, today I'll be talking about the rest of the bands I saw at Lifest this year! There are a lot more than last year and they are all so great! There were a lot of good bands this year, many of which I saw for the first time, which was really cool! I also will be talking about my all time favorite concert EVER, so to find out what that is, read on!
This past week was Lifest 2016!!! I had been looking forward to it for so long and now it's already over, which is sad. But I did have a ton of fun while I was there, and today I want to share with you what I thought of all the bands that I watched while I was there!
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! Stay safe today, I'll talk to you all next week!
So as you probably know from my post last week, I was volunteering at a summer day camp for middle schoolers. For the week, each kid in the camp (there were about 75) was a part of one of the four teams. Each team had 3 to 4 leaders that would spend the week talking to them, teaching them, and spending time with them. And I'm happy to report that it went GREAT!
Today is the first day of Summer Day Camp. It's a four day program that is from 8:30-4:30, so about 7 hours. I am volunteering as a helper for the first time, and I'm super excited! But at the same time, I'm also really nervous.
