Words, Not Words
I wish I could use words to express things well, but I can’t. I read so many blogs, and everybody seems to be able to write just fine. When I look at things I write, it’s like reading a middle schooler’s writing with more mature thoughts. Eck. On top of that, my brain doesn’t seem to be fully capable of processing things using words more often than not. WORDS. >:( It’s rather dumb, considering that we use language in our internal thoughts. I’m not sure where I’m going with this. Sometimes, I would like to be able to better express myself, even in my own head?? Fin.
One. If you didn’t know, I was hit by/I ran into a car while biking last week. Now that sounds terrible, but I made it out with only some nasty bruises and some scratches on my bike. That’s it. Just bruises. I am so thankful that nothing worse happened. And given the circumstances (I was probably going faster than the car when we ran into each other), I could have easily fallen off my bike and been hurt, I could have landed on top of or under the car, my bike could have been smashed, etc. yadablahblah. However, I was still sitting on my bike with my weight on the car after the collision! It’s just amazing that I don’t even have a scratch on me. Thankful that I’m alive, not hospitalized, and uninjured. Biking can be scary.. but I still love it. Stay safe, my fellow cyclists!
Two. I have a job secured for post-graduation. It’s a really weird feeling not having to look for a job after I’ve gotten so used to it. I will be moving to Philadelphia to work for Eaton Corporation as a Power Systems Engineer. I am actually going to be an engineer, working in the field that I actually studied. I don’t think I ever imagined myself actually being an engineer until this past year. It’s a bit crazy to look back two years, when I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do, and when I was thinking of changing my major. Being able to work for Eaton is a huge blessing, along with all the ups and downs associated with my education. I could go on and on about that; I’ll just say that I am thankful to the rich people who give money to scholarship funds that put people like me through college. And just by being at UT, through the people around me, God has taught me so much about Himself, His love, His awesomeness, etc. and how that can be (and now is) central to my life. So above all the other stuff, I am thankful that God saved my life and that I get to live everyday for Him.
