So I’m finally done with my first day of classes! One of the three questions that every new Belmont student gets is “What’s your major?” {The other two, fyi, are who you are and where you’re from.} And while I can answer the other two just fine, the question of what I’m ACTUALLY doing in college {other than painting bricks and playing Wallyball} remains a mystery…

I originally applied taking a Political Science and Communications class, but I’ve switched over to Journalism and am going to audition for the school of music in the fall…so basically, I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve always joked that I’d like to host a show where I just go and do different jobs so that OTHER people who are undecided like me will figure out what they want to do with their life. Journalism has appealed to me as of late because reporting on life interests me. That’s why I have this blog, right? So, I’m going to go with that for the time being…although it does mean {jaws theme here} 8 AM classes! Sigh…

Aside from the fact that I really have no idea what I’m doing, the first day of classes was great! The President of the University gave an address today that reassured me that, no matter what I’m studying, Belmont’s the right place to be. I’ve met so many amazing people already, and being able to walk on campus at two in the morning and seeing people randomly playing ukelele is awesome. The food is…well, food, and the campus is beautiful. I’m so, so happy I’m here. Last night, we had a traditional gathering at the Bell Tower. It was beautiful! I felt so welcomed to Nashville and to the Belmont community.

Undecided major aside, I think I’m going to have an amazing time here at Belmont. :)

  1. Jeanette, you are in the perfect spot right now to obey God’s calling on your life; He will probably make it clear to you when you least expect it! I entered college determined to do what I wanted to do with my own life, even though I knew that God was calling me to go be a missionary. The result was a lot of time, money, and energy wasted- trying to pursue my own desires apart from Him was hopeless. Now, I’m finally getting ready to depart for the mission field in Spain in a few weeks, and my only regret is that I didn’t obey His voice sooner (although I know this is all working out in His timing). Just keep following Him closely, stay in His word, and take opportunities that He puts in front of you, and He will lead you to exactly where you are supposed to be!!
