Where Have I Been?

Hey girls! It's been a long time since I've posted, I know. And I apologize from the bottom of my heart. If you thought I fell off the face of the earth, good news -- I'm still here, with quite a few stories to tell.

The biggest change in my life is my freshman status in an awesome university. That's right, your little girl is all grown up and gone to college! Is it as amazing as everyone portrays it to be? No, but I'm here and I can't leave.

As I realize my readers have grown up with me (and to the newer people, welcome!), I want to share my experiences and tips for surviving college, and I figure you girls can probably give me good advice as well in the comments. Y'all know I struggle with motivation and sticking to things, but I actually think it will be easier to keep this blog up while I'm in college -- and you can help me with that. I was so happy when I logged in today and saw your comments in the sidebar. I thought this little blog was a happy forgotten memory, but I love how when I go through a rough time you girls continue to encourage each other here.

To those of you who have left me emails, I want to apologize for not responding. I have gone through a very rough time the past few months. I went through two relationships, the most recent being with my best friend. He broke up with me a few days ago and I can't even begin to explain how much it hurts. Part of my problem was I loved him so much, I placed my identity in a man instead of God and myself, and when the relationship failed, I felt like there was nothing left. I still feel that. And throughout the time I've been away my faith has been shaky. But I'm hoping blogging again might help me through it.

So here's to another great schoolyear at Girls for God. Leave a comment and let me know how you've been!

Lots of love,
Melissa
