Does anyone else hear that sound?
Oh, yes that is the sweet excitement in my voice because NO MORE FINALS.
I have had one of the biggest weights lifted off of my shoulders. And it feels so great.
Technically finals week started today and by the grace of God I was done on the same day. I had two pretty big tests today and I am so glad to have them over with. Between being almost brain dead and exhausted, I am not really sure how I am feeling yet. I do have to turn in a final project and meet with a professor on Wednesday for final, but hey I don't have to study for them!! I am not calling Freshman Year over until I drive home on Friday. That just means I have to soak up every moment here this week with no stress. How nice does that sound? I have found that I love college 10 times more when you have no classes, assignments, or tests to worry about. I am looking forward to some much needed fun before I leave this place for the whole summer. Right now all I really want to do is lay in bed, but first I will share a little something from my day.
I have learned a lot this year and I have so much to be thankful for... We will get to that once I am home and have time to really think about it all. It has not hit me yet that I have to leave on Friday and oddly enough I think I am going to be sad. Looking back, I remember driving to TCU in August and thinking how I couldn't wait to be back home for summer. Now, look at me. I have come a long way. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to be back in Arkansas, but it will not be the same.
I had two finals today. One went great. The other not so good.
I have always struggled with tests and confidence in general. When you combine the two, it is often hard to me. I would like to give myself a little pat on the back because my study habits have come a long way. I went from not really knowing how to study to feeling like I am finally getting a grip on it. It is a nice feeling. I still hate studying though. I made an 86 on my bio exam which was pretty great. I was ready for that test!!
My stats test was a lot longer and a lot harder than I thought. It is very frustrating because all semester I have found them easy and the final just has to come along and ruin things for me. I am not sure what my grade will end up being, but I would love if you all joined me in believing that God has a plan for it all to work out.
S/o to my mother. Some days your job as a mother can be so good I feel, but others like tonight when I called after my test on the verge of a mental break down... I am sure that wasn't fun for you. Thanks for loving me and being SO supportive. I literally don't know what I would do without you.
Also, thanks to my JanJan and Bia for the package I got today in between my two tests.
God has been so present this year and from that first day when my parents left me to this very moment he is asking me to trust in him. I have no reason not to. That is very scary, but I am very thankful for it.
There are so many things I don't want to end about this year, but finals is not one of them.
Stay strong and Stay thankful friends. Love you all!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
