change is coming my way

I think that the end of the semester (or the end of any phase in life) is a lot like pregnancy. Not that you become with child, but that there seems to be a never ending stream of emotions that change at the drop of a hat.

The other day I went to grad night. Some little meeting/ceremony where President Clark and Vice President Eyring spoke to the graduating students that were in attendance. Up until last night I couldn't wait to get out of this place. And be done with school. But as they were speaking. It hit me.

I'm going to be done with this phase of my life. D-O-N-E. Kind of weird, huh? No more classes, no more text books, no more testing center, etc. What will I do with my life? What will consume my time and worries? Something will, that's for sure. Work? Bills? Life? Yes, yes, yes.

Change is always hard. But it's kind of exciting at the same time. It's like we get a fresh start. We get to meet new people and have a blank slate. But when we've been in one part of life for a while (ahem...since 2005) you get comfortable. But comfort is where we get in trouble. When we're comfortable we don't see a need for growth and improvement.

As weird as this little town is, I'm going to miss it.

Here's to whatever is next.


  1. WHAT is next? Or a better question...WHERE?

  2. Yeah it's crazy. I missed Rexburg something awful when I graduated. And there's always graduate school!

  3. Sister Talbot! I still can't bring myself to call missionaries by their first name. Not sure if I'll ever be able to. I'm moving to SLC in about a week and I'll be working at a school district. What part of town are you in? We should get together.

    Jacob. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is going to miss Rexburg. As for grad school...maybe one day in the future. I'm holding out for a company I'm one day working for to pay me to go get my master's.
