“Experience TCU” written down for today (April 18th), which is confusing because usually Experience TCU is on Friday. I love love love giving tours for Experience TCU because all the students attending have already been accepted to TCU and now they are just trying to make their decision. It puts a good pressure on me as a tour guide because I know I am one of the last hopes we have at making these kids horned frogs. They are at 7:45 a.m. and that is early for a college student, but it is still so worth it.
I was actually pretty excited to have an experience TCU on aMonday because I knew it would be a great way to start the week. I was a little worried because it has been storming here and the admissions department was making backup plans incase the storms affected today‘s tours. Luckily right as the tour was starting things seemed to clear up and we were able to take the tours. It was not the prettiest morning, but I was just happy to be able to show them around campus without lightening flashing in the background. That would not be a very appealing way to show off TCU!
This really got me thinking aboutMonday’s. I dislike them just as much as the next person, but if you think about it a large part of how the week goes all depends on how Monday is. I have so many things going on with this being the last week of class and I am kind of stressed on how I will get it all done, but I am thankful because starting the week with an Experience TCU has really put things in perspective. I am so blessed to go to school here and learn. It may be a lot to handle at times, but the Lord will never give me more than I can handle. Soon enough I will look back and this will all be behind me. Even though I don’t want to write these papers or study for these tests, I am going to try and enjoy it as much as possible because in a few short weeks I will no longer be a sophomore in college. I have gone back and forth on whether I want this semester to end, but when it comes down to it, I will be sad to move out in a couple of weeks. I will be happy to have a break from school, but I will not be happy to have a break from TCU. That is why I am going to try my hardest to embrace this stressful time with open arms.
It is all about attitude people. I am just praying my positive attitude will stick around for the rest of the week. Make yourMonday. Fill it full of things to be thankful for and I promise you will see a difference in your week. I am going to try my hardest… join me!
Southern and Thankful
