#so this is my favorite class
#today we practiced how to have conversations with people
#i like college
Today in class my professor talked to us about how special a person is. Think about it. Think about someone you’ve met. Anyone. Your best friend, the stranger in line behind you at the grocery store, the boy who sits next to you in class, the barista at Starbucks, your mom, your neighbor, anyone. They are completely unique. They are the only Sarie Koes, Tyler Logan, Brittany Reynolds. They are the only them. Even if some people share the same name as they do, they are the only them that you’ll ever meet. And they exist right now. God could have brought them into life centuries ago or centuries later. He could have had them living in different places. But they are here, and they are here right now, with you. All of us are here in a group together and the same time from places all over the world. We need to stop treating objects as if they were people and people as if they were objects. We need to open our eyes to the infinite value of the people around us and how their lives can teach us something. This is my plan: I’m going to start to say hi to the people in line that I don’t know. I’m going to smile and say hi to passerby. I’m going to be with the people I’m with. I’m going to ask better questions. People aren’t objects, they’re people. We ignore people a lot, when we should be talking to them. I want the person in line behind me at the caf to know that they matter.
yeah, i’m pretty much in awe that this school exists and that God has so much fun making the sky look so rad every night.
they brought me back to the magic // they’re the best. (at D I S N E Y L A N D )
"There are some things about myself that I can’t explain to anyone. There are some things I don’t understand at all. I can’t tell what I think about things or what I’m after. I don’t know what my strengths are or what I’m supposed to do about them. But if I start thinking about these things in too much detail, the whole thing gets scary. And if I get scared, I can only think about myself. I become really self-centered, and without meaning to, I hurt people. So I’m not such a wonderful human being."

"Isaac built an altar there and prayed, calling on God by name. He pitched his tent and his servants started digging another well." // Genesis 26:25 // building my altar and pitching my tent here, in preparation to build a well. (at M c N A L L Y • F I E L D )
i’m not sure what this is or where it came from, but i hangs out on my web browser with other links to things. it doesn’t link me to another website or anything.. but it’s a super great reminder and encouragement and challenge.
Kind words are like honey (bunches of oats). Sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. // Proverbs 16:24 (at Hope Hall)
