How’s it going?
So I started school like three weeks ago, and I’m already like:
It’s a good time, y’all. It’s only the fourth of September.
Today is gonna be a kinda chill, nostalgic day. We’re gonna be talking about what to do when you are fed up with the route God is taking in your life. Whilst including a whole bunch of VeggieTales GIFs. Because that’s where we are right now folks.
Does anyone else feel completely fed up/hopeless about how long it’s gonna take to be done with this crazy hectic thing called school???? With all of it’s freaking requirements???
Don’t get me wrong of course, I love education. But for the introvert, I’d rather you hand me a book and tell me to figure it out, in opposition to going to a physical building with other humans… I don’t know, guys… XD
So if you see me in a public place after school now and I don’t look completely drained, let me warn you, peeps. It’s a facade.
Ask me a question; I guarantee you will have to repeat it a couple times.
I’m so mentally tired after school.
(I just found a flaw. If you see me outside of my house after a school day, you have my full consent to ask what’s wrong. Because… what.)
Not to mention, for me, I’ve got like seven more years of this education stuff. (if all goes as planned) (oh goodness it better not go longer)
Sometimes I just get tired of this.
But believe me, no matter how big your struggle is (like health problems or family issues) or little problems that seem large (like school…), God is using this experience to shape your future.
Listen, I don’t know about y’all, but I need to say this to myself!!
GOD IS USING THIS STRUGGLE IN HIS GLORIOUS PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.
No matter how big or small this struggle may seem to you, you’re gonna come out on the other side of it with a beautiful testimony. It’s gonna be awesome.
For myself, most of my testimony is gonna be how I survived high school/college without ending up doing this:
(y’all better be enjoying my GIF usage because dude this is amazing)
(I’m so sleep deprived, guys…)
(buy me caffeine)
But you know what, even if you don’t see an ending as good as you wanted, know this. God was there, God still is there, and God will continue to be there. I have to tell myself this all the time.
I don’t know if you guys have picked up on this yet, but I AM SO FREAKING FLAWED.
It’s a serious testament of God’s love for us that he has stuck with me this long.
So you better believe he is gonna be right next to you in the hard times AND the good times.
If this ain’t the best your life’s been, don’t fret! Because it’s gonna turn.
For the better, and for your good.
You are going to come out of this changed for good.
*coughs and pushes this gif out from the shadows in my elven cloak*
I’m sorry, I couldn’t stop it. It’s an automatic response. I know it isn’t VeggieTales but… hey.
(I’m laughing so hard, those of you who aren’t musical theatre people are probably just like)
I’m still getting used to my school, and vERY OCCASIONALLY I will just sit there in class and be like “why. Just why is this a thing. Why must we learn in communities.”
But hey, as my mother reminds me frequently, it’s character building.
If you are like me, in need of some encouragement, here’s what you need to know:
You will be okay. You’re gonna get through this. Go find someone and ask them for a hug. We need physical affection. Go get hugs. Drink lots of water. Stay healthy. You’re gonna get through this. It’s gonna be okay.
Well, guys, I hope you enjoyed my GIF-filled post today. I sure did. Writing it helped a lot with my panic mode. I hope reading it had the same effect.
I love y’all. Please take care of yourselves. I swear to you, we’re gonna get through this school year alive.
Okay, now go forth, mis amigos and amigas, and smile. Your day is just beginning. Make the best of it. Don’t procrastinate. Work hard. Make me proud. 🙂
Love you all,
