Jesus lover. College sophmore. Interdisciplinary Studies major. Fiancée. Introvert.
These are all words that can be used to describe me. Yes, that's right. I am a college sophomore, only 19 years old, and engaged. Crazy, right? Well, some might think so. To me, it's just life. I found the love of my life, and as they say, "when you know, you know." I realized my life was a little different than the ordinary, so I figured maybe there are a few out there who are interested in hearing a little about my life.
I was born and raised in different parts of New Jersey. My family was not the most finanically well off, so this caused us to move quite often when I was younger. My family is nondenominational Christians, and I decided to chase Jesus for myself when I was thirteen. Ever since then, my life has been dedicated to serving Him. I attended a very small, private Christian school for all thirteen years of school. And when I say small, I mean small. Like, I graduated in a class of ten students. And not to brag or anything, but I was valedictorian. I know, I know, I'm big stuff. You can ask for autographs later.
Anyway, once I graduated, I moved to Virginia to attend school here. This was a big step considering how close my family and I have always been. My only sibling, my older brother, attended a local college, so I was the first one to leave the house. But ever since I was young, I always had an adventurous side to me, and while I was sad to leave, I was also super excited for the new adventure ahead of me. I actually attempted to make this blog then, to take you guys along with me as I figured out how to "adult." Unfortunately, college swept me away in a blur of school work, friends, and one special guy. But I am back and ready to get this started!
Freshman year was unlike anything I had ever experienced, and as cheesy as it sounds, I grew so much as a person and learned so much. I had been largely sheltered growing up, and my eyes were open to so many things. I met some of the best people, and I met the guy of my dreams. Never in a million years did I go into fall semester expecting to be engaged by the end of my freshman year. But God works in mysterious ways. Stick around for future blogs about our love story.
Anyway, that brings us to where I am today, currently planning a wedding for the end of the summer. If my story interests you at all, stick around! I will be sharing many types of things on this blog, from personal stories to advice to hacks and tips I've learned to faith and encouragement. I can't wait to start this blogging journey with you guys, and hopefully you can learn something along with me through it all.
