Francis Parker School workshop helps growing players hone skills
Here’s the last story from my U-T San Diego internship. It was fun to try to capture the spirit and reach of the program in its relation to the community of San Diego.

I’m sorry this post has taken so long to go up. I graduated on May 10 and the best part about graduation was seeing so many different people who have been essential to my college career come together. From the hugs post-ceremony to my graduation party, I was reminded of how fortunate I am to know the folks I do.
My graduation party was remarkable, because Jonny and Matt and Christin met Dr. Michael Clark and Dr. Mark Wright, a meeting I’d anticipated and was glad to see come to fruition. It took place at Art’s apartment and Art dictated a poem in my honor to Christin, who read it aloud. It was heart-warming.
The wheels continued to turn with Mother’s Day the following day, as well as moving out of my on campus flex apartment, then finishing setting up summer graduation stuff. I finally got settled down at the Paul’s house once all the goodbyes were made.
Now, I’m applying for jobs and apartments and reading a lot. It’s difficult still being in a state of transition, knowing that whatever routine I’ve made for the last week and a half is short-lived. But change is the essence of life, isn’t it? At least that’s what someone’s said.
Being in this state has a focusing effect. It reminds me that my identity is not dependent upon being a student, or having a career, but upon Christ. Christ is the constancy by which I live day to day. And I have to hold to that.
It was a great year. I love that school.
