When you have a big test on Monday, forcing you study all weekend, you have no choice but to look for something positive.
I am convinced that my father got all the scientific genes in our family because I am just not interested in it at all. At TCU each student is required to take 2 science classes as part of the core. I was kind of unsure of this, but I was kind of excited about learning some science. That excitement has slowly faded away and now I am just ready for the science class I am currently in to be over. It is called Contemporary Issues in Biology... basically bio for dummies, but it is so much information that I feel like I should just graduate now with a degree for all this work I have put in.
I have been in the same building all weekend long studying and I am beginning to lose it so I am now on a study break. Yeah, I am thankful for that too. I started studying in this room on Friday and I have been there for hours on hours for the past 3 days. Like I said, I am tried of studying, but the view in this room helps a little. It over looks the campus commons and I can't get enough of it. In my mind, it is the perfect picture of TCU. I could look at it all day long!
God certainty paints some beautiful pictures and this view out my study room window is one I am thankful for today. At least when I feel overwhelmed or need a break I can gaze out the window and remember that there is more to life then studying and making a good grade on a test. Yes, it's important, but in the grand scheme of things it most certainly is not important. If I didn't have this view to keep me entertained and happy, I am not really sure how I would have made it through this boringly stressful weekend.
Tests have always been difficult for me. It's not that I don't know the information, it's that I don't do well under pressure. It has gotten better over the years, but with the stakes raised at college, it has become a little harder.
Tomorrow's exam will be challenging because it is the last exam for the final. I really need to do well because this exam will determine a lot about my final grade, which right now is not any where near what I want it to be. Any prayers that you have to offer would be greatly appreciate at this point. The exam is at 12 and I am praying for confidence, peace, and God's great wisdom.
I know things in life are meant to be challenging, but this is not the thing I want to be challenged on. But guess what? I am being challenged on it and I have to make the best of this challenge. I know you all know what it is like to face a challenge.
Today I have to take what I can get and be thankful for a pretty view to keep me company as I drowned in biology. Seriously thank goodness I am not a science major.
Look for the pictures God's paints in our life... They are truly something to be thankful for!
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. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. 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!
