Let it be known that enrolling in classes oddly makes me feel as if I am taking place in the Hunger Games selection. I am not really sure if that is a good or bad thing? I thought the older you get the easier it would be to get the classes you want and since I was enrolling for my junior fall semester (lets not talk about it... I am already feeling sentimental) I was thinking I would have no problem. I got a tad concerned last night when 3 of my classes that I needed were almost full. When you see there is one seat left, yet it isn't time for you to enroll you can't really help but stress a bit.
Each person is given a certain time and date on which they are supposed to sign up for classes. It typically goes by grade with honors students being somewhere in the middle of all that. You can now imagine the worry that came over me when I checked my classes and the majority of them were almost full.
I ended up getting in two classes for my major, american politics, a Film/TV/Digital Media class, and then I was waitlisted in a class that I really need for my minor. I am excited because the classes for my major will be upper level and will hopefully help me figure out more of what I want to do as a profession. I am also going to be starting my Film, TV, Digital Media minor, which I think I am really going to like. American politics satisfies something I have to have to graduate and it is going to be during election season... that was a no brainer! At this point in the semester I am usually getting tired of my classes and choosing new ones always makes me excited about what is ahead. Sounds good, right?
The class I was waitlisted in is for my other minor, Communication Studies, and I am almost finished with that minor so I really want to take this class. I need to take it because it worked best with my schedule. Good news though, I am number 1 on the waitlist so I just need one person to drop out before next fall and I will get in. The odds of that happening are in my favor (see what I did there?)
OH and the BEST PART about next fall's schedule is that as of right now (prayers it stays this way) I do not have any classes on Friday!!!!!! Now how cool is that? I didn't even really plan for that... It just kind of happened!! So hopefully I will get in this comm class and I will be good to go as a Junior in college. Wow I don't really like saying that.
After all the Hunger Game like enrolling I spent some time in my bible studying this verse:
"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" - Luke 12:24
I read it right after getting on the waitlist. I thought how fitting is that?
We have to remember that worrying will never help us in any way. It won't fix anything and it certainty won't make us happy. So why waste your time worrying about something that your God already has full of control of?
I know, it is easier said than done, but if we have complete faith, worry will end up all by its lonesome self!
Hard to believe this semester is flying by so quickly. Here's to not worrying about that and living in the moment! Feel free to join me!
