Aside from the fact that productivity is currently at an all-time low (somebody send me some motivation, please; anything to combat this awful senioritis), you caught me at an exciting time here. Two months away from graduation, my classmates and I are shuffling our portfolios together, researching jobs, honing our interviewing skills, and wondering if the post office by the apartments we're checking out can do same-day delivery of our mothers' home cooking. It's crazy; we're about to be college graduates. When we turned 18, they told us we were adults. I feel like that wasn't really true until now.

Before I get all introspective and sentimental, let me tell you what's going on with the rest of the campus. The new Student Association officers are getting trained and settled in. We might have a bowling social this weekend. REVO, our annual charity fundraising event, is coming up soon. (This year the cause we're supporting is Love 146, an anti-human trafficking organization.)

And as for the big question that everyone keeps asking? What am I doing next year? Well, I have plans to be a student missionary, though God hasn't yet shown me where I'm going. I had a phone interview the other day, though I don't want to say just yet what country it was. Let's just say it's somewhere very, very far away. When I get back from my year as a student missionary, I want to be a journalist. I finally figured it out.

This will probably be my last letter home (I'm not dying; I'm graduating, remember?), but keep checking up on this great little school on The Hill; I know I certainly will be.
