Get to Know You (and by "You" I mean Me)


My name is Morgan and I am a freshman at North Carolina State University (go wolfpack!).  I really don't have as much school spirit as it seems like I should, but I found that to be appropriate.   I know, I know, oh, a freshman, that's so cute, you're just figuring everything out.  But I promise you, this is not as hard as you would think.  Yes, being an engineering and spanish double major will probably come with its difficult moments, and I'm sure that my workload paired with that of my roommate (a design student) will create some pretty stressful atmospheres, but right now, my main focus is to not stress.

That is harder than it sounds though, especially being the type A, perfectionist that I am.  But, by getting involved in things that interest me I hope to find a large support group, a network that can be there when I do get into areas that become more stressful than I'm in now.  One of these groups is Engineers Without Borders.  This is a group that works on water and energy conservation, access, and generally educating people around the world on things such as nutrition and hygiene.  I am also a part of the NCSU chapter of the United Way organization.  They are also a service organization, working to make the local area better for the people living there.  Working with local people to teach them skills for things such as interviews, and simple jobs.

The things that I look to the most though, is my faith.  Starting the day off every morning by diving into God's word just sets a good tone everything else.  It is so awesome to know that he is in control, that He has a plan for me, and as long as I listen to Him, things will turn out alright.  Better than alright actually, since His plan is perfect.  I don't consider myself to be a religious person, because religion is not what it is about.  It's about your relationship with the one and only savior Jesus Christ.

Most of the things that I post here will be random things that happen in my life, my thoughts and opinions.  I hope that you find it interesting enough, and that what I have might have some impact of someone's life. I'm more than happy to take questions, and to  give my opinion on most anything, so please, feel free to ask.
