Some cool seats that were in the coles sports center conference room.
Had so much fun on the Winter in NYC trip with my Third North Explorations Floor! I went ice skating, ate dinner, and sipped hot chocolate while getting to play with our Faculty Affiliate’s baby and take pictures with the Christmas trees. I can’t believe I didn’t start building these types of memories sooner! :)

Take advantage of countless opportunities I wouldn’t have had if I hadn’t come to this amazing school.
God is Good. And the journey continues….

"Only three weeks in, and I’m already at the stage where I could tell you that if I hadn’t come to NYU, I wouldn’t have gotten the opportunities that I am taking advantage of right now…"
When the world ends, maybe when the sun rises. It could be either now or never, but each now is already past. I could say not now but in the very next second the opportune moment could come and it wouldn’t be during the amount of space and time I took to say “not now.” It’s not about the moments that we breath, but the moments that we say that the expenditure of breath was worthwhile. If not now, then maybe sometime in the future. Maybe sometime in the past. Who’s to say it hasn’t happened yet? Who’s to say we haven’t already made it? I used to think about my life as a dream. Where I want to be, who I want to become, but now I’m here in New York City, and since I’ve been here I’ve stopped dreaming. The daydreaming has stopped, and every time I try to go back to that swinging of birches, something stops me. It’s not the same anymore. Maybe it’s not now, but on August 25th, my life changed. I entered a new portal, a new door that was no longer open to dreams and wishes and petitions. Because now I’m making it for myself. the time IS NOW. If not now, then never can never be in the vocabulary. Because it has to happen now. It has to go further than just now. The now should be ongoing and it should be carried away to a place where even I can’t see. Where God can’t even see. Because if time truly happens all at once, I need to be in a place where no one can guess that I would’ve ended up there.
I’m reaching further into my thoughts trying to recall the times when I was a dreamer. If not now, then in a month. If not now, then next year. If not now, then whenever I make this new song.
Those yesterdays have been turned into todays and those todays have been turned into tomorrows and the the tomorrows are the bridges that will connect my soul with the inner workings of the universe that forever control my fate. The question is always do things happen as we go or is life all predetermined. I know I’m supposed to believe in predetermination to an extent as a Christian, but at the same time I know that I am taking baby steps day by day. And I am just at the beginning of the mix. I am just starting out on this journey that I’ve been yearning for ever since I was a tiny little girl, waiting for that ball to drop in times square, thinking that something big would happen at 12am. That’s when I knew I needed to be in New York. Infinitely. Productively. Creatively. Lovely.
And if not then? Now more than ever. If not then, now.
