This post is important

I promised everyone this would be an intense post. I will try to make this short!

I’m not going to Seton Hill anymore. At all. 

Say what?! Let me explain.

Waaaaay back before my 2nd semester at Penn State (PSU), I had planned on transferring to Seton Hill (SHU). I made sure to contact the transfer counselor at SHU to confirm that my 2nd semester classes at PSU matched up and would transfer.

She told me that all of my credits but 1 math class would transfer to SHU. Not too shabby!

Everything went swell. I got a scholarship for running and once I moved into Seton Hill I got an iPad and was scheduled to get a Mac. One week had passed since the move-in and I was enjoying the college life.

This past Friday was orientation. I went to meet with my academic advisor at SHU and she told me that only 9 of my credits from Penn State would transfer to SHU. I took 30 credits at Penn State.

I was shocked. They had told me that all of my credits would transfer. Was this real life? Apparently so. I talked to my parents and cried. I decided that I wasn’t going to give up all of the credits that I worked so hard for at PSU.

So Sunday I moved out of SHU and withdrew on Monday (the first day of school for both PSU & SHU). I had to drive there, return all of my cross country gear, return the iPad, return my books, return my laundry key, and room key. The cross country coach was upset with me and didn’t treat me well at all.

After driving home from Seton Hill I immediately went to Penn State (at 1:00 PM) and enrolled there. I quickly scheduled my courses and made it to two classes on Monday by 2:00PM (I missed two in the morning though..) plus I dropped $412 on books in the book store.

I didn’t get to schedule all of the classes I NEED because I had to schedule on the first day of school but I’ll take what I can get.

Monday was CRAZY. I was enrolled in one college in the morning and enrolled at a different one in the afternoon. My emotions were tested and I miss all of my friends on the cross country team but I know God has a reason for EVERYTHING! I never had a problem with PSU and I’m excited to be back.

“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” Psalm 94:18-19 

Such busy times!

Hey everyone! Sorry I am here and there with blogging but I promise I am stalking you all still and trying to comment as much as time permits!

Cross country camp has been going well! I did some laundry yesterday…

Practice wasn’t too bad. We ran 4 miles and the morning and did 6x600m intervals at 4PM.

I then proceeded to drive home and head to an event at my high school.

I went from this:

SWEATY/NASTY

Ice on my knee while driving (don’t know if that is legal?..)

TO THIS (picture below) … all in 20 minutes!

Cray cray.

I slept over my house for the night and left by 7:30AM to be at practice by 9AM to run 7 miles. I walked up to my dorm and what do you know I was locked out! I had to get let into my building and then try to get my card fixed before practice. The residence life staff could fix my card. Cool! So I went to practice and look who came to my campus:

Mom!!! She met me after my 9AM practice (7 miles) to go out to lunch (YAYAYAY) and stop at Walmart before my 4PM practice (lifting)

First iced latte in SO long…. ahhh I missed em!

Needless to say it has been a BUSY day. I can’t imagine how busy I will be when classes start :/ blehhh!! I have a 7PM meeting with the team and then movie night at a friends dorm! Whoop whoop!!
