I AM SO BAD AT BLOGGING!!!
I totally thought changing my blog’s look and style would suddenly make me completely motivated. I even made a blogging schedule to help me manage my email list, social media and blog itself.
That was a flop.
This semester has been pure insanity. Its been a really great time of growth and challenges, but just super busy. Plus I’m writing all. the. time. Covering sports for my school paper, writing for my NEW JOB, not to mention school assignments which usually include writing articles. I’m drowning in my own words, and its honestly the best feeling ever.
Thanking Jesus that I love what I do.
That’s not to say I haven’t wanted to blog. I love blogging. Its such a different type of writing, and something I greatly enjoy. There just hasn’t been the time.
So, to save some time I put up a Q&A on my Instagram (my personal one…I already gave up on the Soul On Fire one…). Here’s the questions and my answers! Thanks to everyone who sent some in!
Who’s your favorite roommate?
Well…I’ve only had one so my options are severely limited. Just kidding Lauren, you know I love you. 😉
Who is your favorite sister?
Clearly I need to love these people better since they feel the need to ask me these questions via Instagram…
And Mia you know I can’t say…;)
How did you get such an awesome dad?
How’s the college life?
College is so great. SO great! I’m growing so much in every aspect of life, especially my faith. I’ve met so many cool people, had so many awesome opportunities, and learned so much. College is amazing.
Why do you enjoy writing?
I love this question. It really made me think.
I just love when words that are meaningless alone fall perfectly into place together to convey something beautiful. Its often hard to appropriately express what we feel, and for me its really hard to do that verbally. But on the rare occasion we are able to find what we’re trying to say and express it well, its the best feeling in the world.
Would you rather eat a brick or a matterbaby?
Nice try, Tim.
What’s your favorite thing about Cedarville?
Chapel. The Christian community. Any basic answer, that’s my answer too. There’s no denying it’s a special place.
Would you ride a rollercoaster if it was with the culinary engineer?
Your food is delicious but your taste in entertainment is not so. I’m not a fan of rollercoasters. Sorry my dude.
What is something you do to remind yourself of the joy we have in Christ?
This can be so so hard. When things are tough and He feels far, it can seem impossible to find that joy and comfort. For me, I go to the word, though that takes a lot of discipline. Sometimes that’s the last place I want to go when I feel down. But I know that is where He speaks to His children and reminds us of His joy. Prayer and fellowship with fellow Christians (even if that means my mom) are also great ways to combat the devil when He gets in your head in those times.
Do you have any of those donuts left?
She’s referring to these donuts from Duck Donuts in Hilton Head and . . . no. We demolished those things. Highly recommend though! 😉
What is your favorite characteristic of God?
His mercy. Think about it. We are foul creatures who turn from our perfect Creator and think we can do it better ourselves. Yet He sent His perfect Son to die for our far-from-perfect selves when what we really deserve is an ugly, ugly demise. In 1 Chronicles 29, David says, “‘But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.'” Though he’s not referring to salvation, it describes how I feel when I think about it.
He is so merciful.
Thanks for the questions! Talk to you all soon. 🙂
Lots of love,
