Waiting For The Parade*
*A play about five women in Calgary, Canada during WWII, also the play I’ve been cast in!
Things have just been so fantastic this week! I received information on about 4 or 5 internships this week. The one I want the most will take me to Wisconsin! Milwaukee area, specifically. There are so many fantastic things that make this internship the one I can’t stop thinking about. There are five positions open, all five interns live in a house together for the summer, they lead mission trips and Bible studies and VBS, they help in the community gardens, they work in the Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church, and then there is a week trip to Rocky Mountain National Park where they commune with God and Nature and deepen their own spiritual relationships.
My description doesn’t do it justice! And there is no way to make you understand how excited this possibility makes me, how it makes my heart soar, or why. I also can’t explain why, on Tuesday at the Missions Fair, talking with the representatives of the various mission groups made me feel at home. It was the sense of, “ah, these people get it” that I feel so infrequently. Not that my friends and family don’t try, but most of them don’t have the desire, no, the need to get out into the world to spread peace and love and justice. The people I talked to on Tuesday, they got it, and I could feel it vibrating off of them as they spoke about the things they’re passionate about. That’s how I feel when I’m talking about these things too.
So there’s that. I also received my info packet from Princeton’s Seminary! Yeah, I’ll be applying. 🙂
I received an invitation to apply for membership in ODK, a collegiate honor society that focuses on leadership.
I auditioned, AND WAS CAST!!, in a play here at the university.
I understood, and enjoyed, my chemistry lab.
Lots of little things that all put together this week have made me feel like a million bucks. I feel successful and productive and lots of other good feeling things. 🙂 It’s awesome!
