Hi Blogger!

So this semester has been wonderful. As I have previously written, I got the part of Irina in Chekhov's Three Sisters at my college. It was such a blessing to be a part of the production. I felt like I learned something vital every day. This semester I feel like for the first time in my life, I'm genuinely seeing Christ move in the lives of those around me. I'm watching his love revolutionize their lives right before my eyes. It's pretty moving to see someone fall more in love with him every day.

Anyways, now I've hit the easy point of my year. My show is over and now I can focus on grades, friends, and FINALLY catching up on books. Yesterday I went to a bookstore with Courtney and I began to talk up how great Looking for Alaska, a book by John Green, is. I read it when I was 15 and it changed my life. More so, John Green and his brother's youtube videos inspired me to pursue writing and theatre, and not be ashamed to be my true nerdy self. His fans have a habit of showing their love for him by leaving little 'Nerdfighter Notes' expressing their love for the novel or jotting down a little inspirational sentence in between the pages of their favorite book by him. For YEARS I have been going to bookstores and flipping nonchalantly through the pages, hoping I'd find one of the notes. However, I never found one...until yesterday. As I talked to Courtney and explained the basic plot of the book I thumbed through some pages randomly, not expecting to find anything, when I came across a post it note with a message scrawled across it.

I became so overjoyed that I proceeded to make a scene right there in the store. I left the note intact, waiting for someone to pick up this book and cherish it as I have. That's all I have for now. God bless!

Here's a picture of the show!
