Today I’m going to talk about Friday night and Saturday. After my test on Friday I got a tour of the campus which was pretty neat. I also got a look at the dorms so that I could have a better idea as to what dorm I want to live in.
I tell you I’ve never been to a place that had so many people that were as nice as these people were. I was swished away in the breeze of kindness that blew past me. I really think this school is one of the best things that has blossomed in my life.
Saturday was orientation and I thought it was going to be a long and a semi stressful day, but what I found was an environment filled with encouragement and joy.
One lady whom sticks fresh in my head is Debbie. Her last name has been lost in the hustle n bustle inside my head so I can’t recall it at the moment. I met her while on my tour of the campus on Friday night. My dad, the tour guide and I were walking towards her and she all of a sudden stuck her hand out to shake mine and said “hi Taylor my name is Debbie”. I was totally caught off guard that she even knew my name in the first place. She was so sweet and let me know that she was working on getting resources ready for me for the fall; so I’ll have the same advantage as all the other fully sighted students.
Another person who I’m really looking forward to next year is: Dr. Stutes. She is the Dean of the Music School at Wayland. The first time I met her was when I went to visit WBU back in February. I saw her on Saturday and she said “Oh hi Taylor it’s nice to see you again!” She was also very sweet and I look forward to being in her class in the fall. It made me feel so special that a few people remember me.
Saturday I got to pick my classes as I said (16 credit hrs) and register for everything else that I would need next year. (Dorm, meal plan, picture id, financial aid, ect). It was very well organized and made it easy to get everything done in a timely manner. Although, it did take about 6 hrs to get through every station.
In conclusion I am so ecstatic about going to Wayland in the fall and I can’t wait to meet new people and try new things. At the end of June I believe ill get to find out who my roommate will be. How cool is that. I can’t wait!!! J
My God is leading me so I shall fallow and obey. Everything is working out because I’ve put it all in high hands.
God bless. J

Ok so I am currently in Stephenville Texas visiting with some step family. Really the reason why I am in Texas to begin with is because registration was last Saturday and I had to take a placement test for math at the college I’m going to be attending in the fall. If you don’t know what school that is its Wayland Baptist University. God sure has been working marvelous things in my life throughout this past year.
So any who, let’s start out with last Thursday. My dad and I left for Texas around 7pm driving through the night. It was about a 12 hour drive to get to Wayland, and it was pretty cool that I got to spend so much time with just my dad. We actually got to talk a bit, and it really made me feel closer to him. I haven’t been very close to my dad in a very long time, so it felt really amazing to actually get to talk to him about all sorts of stuff.
We arrived at my school around 11:30 on Friday morning which was exciting.
At 1 o’clock I took my math placement test. Can anyone guess what grade I got on it???? Bet not… lol I got an “A” on it!!!!! I totally thought I was going to fail it but I guess I was wrong. J Since I got an “A” It placed me in the College Algebra class. Wow me ahead, how did that happen?!?!? That totally made my day by the way…
Saturday’s extravaganza will be posted tomorrow just so my blogs can stay semi short. If I post my blogs to long I’m afraid no one will read them. So stay tuned for more exciting news on this new chapter in my life. J

God has been revealing a few things to me in the last couple of weeks. Here is what I've come to realize.
1. I am supper small!!!! Sometimes I make myself feel big when I'm really not. God has shown me that he is way bigger than I could have ever imagined. The link below is a video God used to show this to me. There are 5 videos you don't have to watch all of them.
2. There was this old encouragement text my friend once sent me, it said to think of 5 things that God has done that is worthy of praise. At the moment I couldn't think of anything, but as time went on I've come to realize some things that is worth of praising. 1 is..
1. Every day God blesses us with a new painting in the sky. Everyday it reminds me of how beautiful He really is.
Have you ever heard anyone say that a picture can never be as good as the real thing. That reminds me of when I try to take a picture of a sunset. I try so hard to capture what my eyes are taking in, but guess what it never seams as marvelous as it was in person.
3. To cherish the time I have with the people I love because time fly's really fast and before you know it you want to turn back time and unfortunately you cant.
4. If God wants you to do something, somehow you end up doing it in the end. He pushes and pushes you until you have to do what He says. He has a plan for my life so why do I keep fighting what he wants, afterall he knows whats best for me, but I do it any ways.
I think there is more but I can't think of the rest at the moment. :)
