A regular occurrence for me: realizing what year it is, followed by the unsettling thought, I’m getting old! In reality, it’s only been five years since I graduated college—but it’s already been five years! Many probably understand this strange paradox. Time flies, and as people say, as a roll of toilet paper goes faster the closer it gets to the end, so do our lives.
As graduation season hit this year, I reflected on the last five years since graduating from The University of Texas at Austin (hook ‘em!). In some ways, 2014 me feels the same as 2019 me—she’s still below-average height, passionate, sassy, and loud as can be. But, there are actually many ways God has grown me, even if it hasn’t been as rapid and noticeable as when I was an InterVarsity student.
