Post from my iPhone before bed: Confidence Boosters 

It’s been a while. I’ve missed blogging… but it’s been kind of worth it not being on this 24/7… Because I GOT AN A ON MY ANATOMY PRACTICAL LAST WEEK!  THIS IS MAKING ALLIE’S COLLEGE GRADES HISTORY BOOK (a very nonexistent book). 

Only one month left, then I’m free from that awfully difficult class and this semester!!!!!!!!!!!! Banaisuagabzkoduwgsvdnwkwoeushqbskdiuwyqbsmxoieue cannot contain the excitement. 

THEN I’m on to nursing specific classes, which I am so excited for! I got my schedule for fall this week, so it’s nice to know my school life is somewhat in order. 


Another coolish thing I have been doing is running. My friends convinced me to run a half marathon with them next February. It sounds crazy, but I actually kind of enjoy it now. I ran 2 miles today… It was kind of hard. But I don’t remember the last time I ran 2 miles. So, I am not THAT out of shape. 

Fun thing I learned today: Awkward isn’t a concept in other languages. English is the only language that has a word for awkward. It’s some crazy idea we came up with in our heads. 


So be BOLD & CONFIDENT. Ask guys to coffee if you’re interested (if they think it’s “awkward” it’s their fault), run (even if you’re convinced you run “awkwardly”), study (even if it’s “awkward” that you see the same people in the library all of the time).

Also: if my friend who secretly blogs on tumblr is reading this… You’re getting a special shout out, because you inspired me tonight to pray earnestly. And I think you’ve called yourself awkward before, and I’m just letting you know that you’re not and that I love ya! And we should all know that God is calling each and every one of us to not pay attention to what we believe are our “awkward” flaws, and rather be brave to glorify Him in all we do. 

You make me brave. No fear can hinder now the love that made a way.
