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!
