I am so very, very busy. However, it's a good, lots-of-great-things-to-do (mostly dancing) busy, nothing like last year's actually-falling-asleep-on-a-noisy-bus-to-D.C.-because-I'm-so-drained-from-never-sleeping busy. Anyway, in all of this great busyness, I need to keep my eyes and heart focused on the Word of God, the unchanging truth. In an effort to do that more consistently, my blog will cease to be it's normal sporadic posts of Rachel ramblings for a little while and become a place where I share a Scripture passage I've been reading and reflecting on. In this way, I can provide myself with some accountability and hopefully provide encouragement to others as well.

best college purchases...

Rain Boots -- I usually have a shoe crisis each morning trying to figure out which shoes match my outfit, but recently my rain boots have solved all my problems because it rains so often in Erie that I just always wear my rain boots. Also, they happen to rather adorable so I don't mind at all.

Tide-To-Go Stick -- I am a very messy eater. A good friend once told me that my bangs were like a beard for my head because I always get food in them. It still makes me laugh every time I think of her saying it. Anyway, between that and just being very klutzy, my Tide stick has saved my life on a daily basis.

Sticky Tack -- The wall on my side of the dorm room is made of cement bricks so pretty much nothing sticks to it except, of course, sticky tack. My wall is covered in pictures, paper, letters and even a write-on, wipe-off board all because of sticky tack. And this is very important mostly because I love decorating. It does, however, make the room feel a little more like home and a little less like a white box.

Chocolate -- It's simple. Chocolate is essential to life. Well, at least my life. I don't know what I would do without it...
