I’m 22 now. And I had such a good, full birthday that I’m up now late into the night finishing up my preparations for my Senior Seminar presentation.
I spent my day with some of the people I love the most–whom I won’t see frequently after the next few weeks. Let’s not think about that right now.
In nine hours, I will be done. I will be free of Senior Seminar. This is quite possibly one of the most exciting things that has happened to me in awhile.
Will I be less busy? No, of course not.
Good job April. Yesterday was a good day.
Lord, make life beautiful.
April thus far has had mixed results.
My Senior Seminar paper is finally completed. I still have a presentation, but the paper is done. Of course, as I looked up a quote in it this evening for another paper, I found a typo. It was 43 pages–there were probably more typos. Hallelujah, I’m done with that paper.
It was just getting to the completed state that was difficult. And challenging. And stressful. I don’t really know how I’ve managed to live my life this “April Thus Far.” So much of life lately has been nutty, busy, crazy, and just plain ridiculous. Some of that was fun. Some if it was not.
Despite the mixed results thus far, I remain confident that April will finish miles ahead of March. The crazy won’t end–it never will.
In fact, I shouldn’t be writing this post at all. I should be finishing my 10-11 page paper on theology of disability that’s due tommorow or studying for my American Government test that’s tomorrow or reading for the president’s class or cleaning my room or preparing for my summer or any number of things. However, lately, I have been choosing mental and emotional health over certain responsibilities. Like going to visit a best friend I hadn’t really talked to since beginning of February or going to Ultimate practice–when I should have been homeworking. Somehow, though, everything gets done.
Time now to finish a research paper. After writing a 43 page opus, adding five pages to a paper that needs to total 10 is no big deal.
April: please proceed awesomely. I’m depending on you.
April has arrived.
It’s already better than March. Partly because it’s just not March anymore. Partly because Senior Seminar will be done this month.
I think I’m going to be spending much of April being of two minds. I will want things to end quickly yet never end at all simultaneously. I think that’s just how the last days of a senior year at college go.
I just want to enjoy April. April, please be nice.
This was supposed to be published on March 10. It wasn’t. It’s now March 29. WordPress, you fail. When I hit publish, I want you to publish. I shouldn’t need to triple check that a post has published.
I’m in the midst of writing my literature review of my senior seminar. I should be working on that instead of writing this. However, I am distracted.
I’m only 10 days into March 2010 and already my life is vastly different from February 28, from January 31, from December 31. I knew March 2010 would change my life and it will continue to do so. Some of these March 2010 days are harder than others.
Too much is floating around in my head. This is unfortunate, because I’d like my thoughts to focus on this ginormous project I’m attempting to complete. Other people’s problems and crazy, world events, classes that are wasting my time, arguments and frustration with the Lord, heart confusion, my own crazy, and more are competing with my researching and writing on church ministry to children with special needs.
I’m trying to enjoy the process, the journey, the path. Right now, I’d like to put my responsibilities on pause and just do something completely crazy.
Alas. I don’t have time for that.
