change around the corner.

Grateful for: change. I love that I can switch up the "Listening to" column if I want. Truth be told, usually I only listen to music while I blog so that I can fill that column. So, I'm changing it up for now. Today, I'm thankful for change. Thankful that I have this huge education opportunity, and that I can do something different with my time. 
Quote love: "Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering."

Tomorrow is going to be a big day.

Last week, I was accepted into a dual credit program at Taylor University. Annnd, after receiving my text book, going on an unsuccessful hunt for art supplies, and a visit to the college, I'm ready to start tomorrow.

Drawing 1 is a pre-requisite for a lot of graphic design diplomas. If I do decide to major in some sort of graphic design, it'll be great to get it out of the way now. Plus, it's only $25 a credit hour (!) and I get dual credit. It's a win-win. And another plus: the art department at Taylor is so beautiful! There's great light coming from everywhere, and they have so much equipment...I can't wait.

American Lit looks like fun; just a little overwhelming. The textbook (pictured) is huge, with teeny-tiny little print and see-through thin pages.

The only downside is how long I'll be gone. The classes are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays until early afternoon. If the posting drops off a little, that's why.

Wish me luck for tomorrow! :)


  1. I'm excited for you! Remember to have fun with it. :)

  2. Hope your day is a great one, Katie! I'll be praying :)

  3. Have a great time! The American Lit book is a bit overwhelming (it looks pretty similar to the one I had to read at TU), but it's not too bad for someone who likes to read and read's fast. It's just tricky keeping all the different stories straight. I suggest good notes as you read as to which characters and main topics are in each book. Which prof do you have?

  4. That sounds so exciting! Have fun, and learn lots :)

  5. Congrats Katie! Good luck and have a blast!


  6. That sounds so fun!
    Have an awesome time.
    I'm doing dual credit too.

  7. Katie,
    You will do great at Taylor! We love you, and will be praying for you.
