but first, midterms

16 days till fall break. I could not be more excited. My plans are as follows: having an orthodontist appointment, taking the siblings out to lunch, thrifting for sweaters, and taking pictures for the gram. 
This week, I have midterms. I am not very good at test-taking. So, you can imagine, I am a little nervous. But.......Isaiah 41:10, 13 says, 

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee." 

He says He will strengthen me. He says He will help me. He says He will hold my hand. Please, tell me again why I freak out?

Me? a Blogger??

I find blogs fascinating. They are definitely underrated. Well...we are going to see how this goes.

Hi, I'm Ashlynn, but you can call me Ash. Currently, I am studying cosmetology at The Crown College. I wish I could say that I'm loving the college life, but not going to lie to you. I tend to feel lonely. Yes, I am surrounded by hundreds of people, but no one truly knows my deepest self. On the flip side, I am learning quite a lot and enjoying cosmetology. It helps to have fabulous teachers :) Last week we did manicures and pedicures. I did pretty well. I need to practice painting on others a little more though.

One quote I found last week that I have been loving states, "Vent about your joy. Not just your problems." So, that is what I have been trying to do. Being completely honest, I struggle with that. We all have our struggles. Sometimes dealing with problems than hearing about someone else's really bums me out. It is more fun to hear about other's joys. Does that mean I do not share my problems or concerns ever? NO! It means sharing my joy as well. This thinking has made me happier. It shows how little some of my problems are. Usually, I am complaining of how early my roommate's alarm went off this morning. You know what? I woke up this morning. I was given another day to learn and love. I would ask you to try it. Maybe just for a day.

xo, ash
