Well, those two months really flew by. Need a catch-up? Here’s what’s been happening… I took a whirlwind trip to Europe with my friend and roommate, Caroline. We hit up a ton of places and had a blast with Contiki Tours. There were 40 other people on our trip, mostly Australians, then 2 Canadians and a New Zealander. We went to London, Paris, Nice, Lucerne, Florence, Rome, Venice, Pisa, Vienna, Munich, Prague, St. Goar, and Amsterdam over the course of 28 days. It was pretty awesome, and a good taster of a first-time trip to Europe.
I spent a few days, including the 4th of July in Austin before heading back to Camp Longhorn to work 3rd term. Going back to Camp was really wonderful. There are just some elements of Camp that don’t change, and so there’s always a comfort and familiarity returning to a place you once knew. This was my 12th year at Camp, and I was given the Chiefs as my cabin. They are 16 years old, and the oldest cabin in girls’ camp. A typical cabin at Camp Longhorn has about 10-15 girls. I had 37. Yes. THIRTY SEVEN. And we had a blast.
Going into Camp, I still didn’t have a place to live in DC, but fortunately that all worked out while I was there. I found a place to live with three other girls, and I move next week! It’s surreal that it’s all happening now—reality is hitting. I’m really leaving Austin. I’m really leaving all my friends that haven’t left already. I’m really going to have to meet new people (which is so exciting!). I really have to find a new internship. I really have to go back to school….oh right, forgot about that.
Anyhow, He is faithful. Of that I am always sure, even when I’m not…if that makes sense. I’m ready to see what the Lord has for me in DC, and ready to be an instrument of His provision. I’ll update post-move with pictures and exciting things
