Sunday, 5 October 2008

I am sitting in my room working on homework right now. I have been sitting in my room working on homework for approximately two hours today, SUNDAY. Sundays used to be days of rest, and they are... In the mornings when I am rejuvenated spiritually by going to church. But then I come home, maybe take a brief nap or something, and then jump back into doing homework. I thought college was not that different from high school. How wrong I was...

I am trying to think of something pithy to say that my dear readers can take away and maybe share with their friends and family. But nothing comes to mind. So I will share a marvelous realization that struck me today in church (and, because I have to hear something multiple times to get it, I have to confess that I have had this realization before): If I have not a goal, a vision, a plan for the work that surrounds me, I will be swallowed up and have nothing to show for the time spent when my life is over.

Doesn’t that sound cool? What I mean is that I realized that I need to have a purpose for my school. I have to remember that it is part of a bigger picture and that it is not my life’s calling (I thank God for that sometimes). If I forget the bigger picture, it is so easy to get swallowed into the depths of despair when I have five ginormous (no, that is not a real word, as my spell-checker is quick to point out) assignments due on Tuesday (AAAAAAACK!).Yeah...

So I am taking Spanish 101 with Senora Endicott and enjoying the class. It was so helpful last year to take Spanish with my other siblings using Rosetta Stone and also taking from a lady in our church who used to live in Spain. It is perhaps my easiest class and is still worth five credits. Yay!

I took a test two weeks ago in Spanish and did fairly well. I think I have an A in the class. We have another test coming up on the 17th. I hope that goes well.

Chemistry and Biology are harder. I have a B and C, respectively, in those classes. But at least I have a C. That is the lowest grade I can have in any class and still receive state funding for attending college while still in high school.

Oh, and today is a Chemistry quiz. I am not really looking forward to it. I should study...

So that concludes my update for now. How are all my dear readers?
