as I carry this cross †

Hi, I'm Jess. I'm 17 and a senior in high school. I'll be a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this fall! GO HEELS!

I love: Jesus, Haiti, Chapel Hill, photography, worship, reading, writing and pretty much anything beautiful, creative or enjoyable. Talk to me :)


He is risen, indeed.

so I’m Baptist but my dad’s parents were Episcopalian. today we went to the Easter service at their church and the choir sang Revelation Song…that is my jaaaam and I was about to go all out haha but then I remembered I wasn’t on stage and I’m not Kari Jobe

also, too hype for my upcoming Cadbury overdose js

He is risen! Happy Resurrection Day, y’all. Be blessed. ♥

lol this argument about public teacher salaries in NC on fb is too funny rn. if you’re a NC resident, and you, in your right mind think that teachers actually get paid “enough” and have “enough” time off and actually make “enough” to support themselves, let alone their families…you are cray cray. we rank 46th in teacher pay. many teachers wake up at the crack of dawn and work 18+ hour days to prepare for their students. just bc they get summers off does not mean they are not working.

it’s all true and it’s exactly why I don’t plan to become a teacher unless things change drastically.
