HEY GUYS! Happy Tuesday y’all!
Today, my morning Spanish tut. was cancelled, and I’m skipping my favourite theology class in order to get some papers done. 😦 But I just finished a very daunting one and thought it would be a good time to take a quick break and blog!
Food. I don’t know how many of you follow me on my Instagram, but I’ve recently posted a few photos of my new favourite way to do breakfast: a Quest bar, my homemade cacao Nutella, and berries. SO YUM.
Negative Mantra. I’ve caught myself recently doing something I really strongly disagree with: thinking to myself, Once I get these assignments done, everything will be better. Ah, no. For there are always daunting things in our lives, ALWAYS. We have to make a conscious effort to stand beside God and see the good.
Music. Justin Bieber all day every day. Sorry not sorry.
Weekend Fun. Saturday I went out to Guelph for Maddie’s birthday dinner and really challenged some Ed voices! I ate a steak with sweet potato fries and had a great time getting to know some of her friends, and get a little closer with Rachel, a girl in our Christian Studies class, but mostly to celebrate this extraordinary girl!
Before the End of My Semester… Alright, here’s what I have left in terms of school work! A ten-page theology paper on faith in the public square; a ten page divinity paper on the paradox of citizenship; a Spanish theorem book; a three-pronged proof on the importance of understanding different religions; my Spanish exam, my English exam, and my History exam. But do you know what is so wonderful about all of this work? Through it all, I am TRULY learning and growing and becoming better for what I feel is the first time since being in school, and it’s incredible. I am blessed, and God is good.
Friendship. My friend Laura is someone I’ve danced with since I was a tiny girl, and we used to live on the same street. We’ve never been extremely close, because we hang out with our whole dance group, but we go to uni together and have recently been spending a ton of time together and she is incredible. We really relate on a lot of the same things and she is just so much fun.
Christmas. I have a final idea of all the shopping I need to do, but I’m thinking now that that shopping trip is going to be a quick trip the weekend before Christmas, because I’ve had no time lately!
Guilt. I recently finally got a cell phone… but I am horrible at using it. I text back days later, especially from Monday-Wednesday, just because I truly hate texting! I want to see people and engage with them in person, ya know? But I think most of my friends get that which is great. Or maybe they all secretly hate me and that wouldn’t be okay.
Family Time. It’s really rare now that all five of us get to be together, but we’re trying to have prayer and Friends/Modern Family time once a week which is great.
Reading. I have no time for pleasure reading anymore, but I’m slowly working my way through John Green’s Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and it’s excellent so far!
