I'm quoting a theatre teacher.

...but I won't tell you who it is. I have to keep some level of mystery (and confidentiality) with these posts. I will tell you, however, that he is extremely tall, directs the musical, and teaches my Contemporary World Drama class. Moving on...

He said yesterday that, "Change is unsettling, even if it's change you want."

I think I took to this quote because so much around us is changing all the time. And it was a good reminder that if some of the changes make us restless - that's okay! We don't need to take everything as it comes at us so well. We can be weirded out at first. We can have doubts and fears. We can fight it a little...

...or a lot.

But we ultimately need to learn where to find our peace.

In John, we read that Jesus said, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

So, find peace with your change. Find peace in your trouble.

After all, He has overcome the world :)

My hair is too long.

I got the part of Gwendolen in The Importance of Being Earnest this April.

My mom's surgery went well. (She had half of her lung removed.)

I've been fighting off a cold for like 3 weeks.

I work too many jobs and too many hours, yet not enough.

Scrooge is slowly but surely taking over my life.

My grades could use a little pick-me-up.

It's my birthday month! I'm going to be a twenty-something!
