Lexington is fun

Recently, I feel like I have been asked this question a lot: "How is life outside of Georgetown?"  I can definitely understand the reasoning behind such question, however, I am very curious as to what people are expecting to hear. Do they want to hear how much I miss my college life? Do they think, life outside of college just isn't fun at all? Or do they think that post-college life is blissful and just want to know how it is?

So, here is my answer! :)

I love it.

I won't say there aren't days that I miss taking 2 steps away from my dorm room and being greeted by a group of sorority sisters procrastinating on homework to have a dance party in the hall way. But, I can say that I do not miss the constant stress of another assignment due, or the incredible amount of meetings there was to attend, or the caf.............

So, what is it that I love so much about post-college life?

Well, I got the opportunity to live in a cozy little apartment on Kirklevington Drive with my best friend before she got married... I was able to work with the Youth Ministry and hang out with high school girls all summer... I nannied (for a hot minute)... I layed out at the pool on my days off... I made new friends (one of which got me the awesome job I have now.. THANKS ASHLEY!)... I got to go on vacation and visit my brother and SIL...I got a new job (with big girl benefits and big girl hours)... I live in the same city as boyfriend (finally)... I get to live with my other best friend/sorority sister at the end of this month... I have been learning how to cook new things... I love being a regular attendee at Tates Creek Presbyterian Church and plugging into a Women's bible study... I am learning how to get around Lexington (on back roads!!)... I go to bed really early (I love sleep)... and I am so excited for what else is in store for me in Lexington! It is has been such a fun, crazy and exciting 4 months but I know this year is going to be full of so many new things that challenge me and make me grateful for everything the Lord has blessed me with!!

In conclusion, I would say... life outside of Georgetown is pretty great! But, I do always love a trip back to the Phi Mu house to remind me of the wonderful and amazing 4 years I was able to spend there!
