Oh for the love of Time!

So Time has been on my mind a lot lately. It is such an interesting thing. It seems to go by so fast and so slow all at the same time. I have recently started going on long amazing jogs around Logan. Man! I am hopelessly devoted to Logan. It is so gorgeous. But sometimes I look up a head of me and there is a huge hill and I wonder how the heck I am going to make it up that hill and then five minutes pass and I am at the top of the hill wondering why I thought that was so hard. It is just interesting to me that right before the hill I am about to give up and then within a short 5 minutes I am admiring a beautiful view and wondering why I was so worried about the hill.
Well.. of course I am going to relate this to life. I have had so many experiences like that in my life. Like when I decided to come to college and how absolutely terrified I was and part of me is still terrified and there are many more huge hills to conquer before I get my bachelors but I remember how terrified I was of coming to college and I think that was just so silly.
I guess time is just so interesting to me because it feels like it is going by so fast but as I sit here I don't feel any different from the 12 year old girl entering Junior High or the 16 year old just wanting to be able to flippin drive and be swept off my feet with dates by cute boys. So part of me feels like no time has passed at all yet.. I am in Logan, living on my own, about to finish my first year of college... all proof that time has passed. It is just kind of trippy I guess...
Oh.. P.S..
I officially decided my Major.. I am going into History teaching. Exciting huh? It feels SO good saying that. It just feels like... Me... :) But geesh it is going to be a long four years.
I know I haven't posted in decades.. I have some amazingly great pictures to post very soon!

Hey, Shaundra. My name is Renata, I'm from Brazil and I was looking for the lyrics of And Waiting, on the google and I found your blog. And I read your last post... I just loved it! About the time, the hills we have to climb... sometimes we feel just like giving up... and then we can see we're on the top, and that our Havenly Father can help us climb any hill... I don't know if I'm making any sense... but anyways.. I would like to keep in touch with you. I love And Waiting... especially now, that I'm waiting for my call to return... it should come any day this week too (like in the song).. and it's just so exciting. I tend to write a lot.. sorry. I'm gonna stop here. Thanks for your time =)

You know i have never thought of it like that, but it's so true! time is a crazy thing. and how it speeds up when you're dreading something coming up and goes painfully slow when you're looking forward to a cruise in the bahamas for instance ;)
