The Butterfly Circus - Short Film
What a beautiful film
Wow, it’s almost the end of finals week. I’ve grown quite a bit throughout just this week trying to study for my three finals + essay! Let me share.
“You reap what you sow.” This fact is something that I am constantly reminded of every year of my education. This quarter was no different. How can I expect to get good grades if I don’t listen in the lectures or do the homework on time? How can I expect anything more than what I’ve put in?
Support is important. I called my parents and nearly cried after one of my finals this past week. Needless to say, it did not go well and I was left feeling very mentally exhausted and upset. I don’t quite know what I expected my Mommy to say to me, but the advice she gave was good. She told me to stop mulling over the fact that I didn’t study well this quarter, because I can’t change that anymore. At least I’m not getting kicked out of this school, and at least I have another quarter to learn - another chance. For now, the most important thing is to sit down and focus, study what I need to and do as much as I can. That’s all I can do now.
My church family loves me! The youth at SVCA gave us college students care packages for finals week and there was a card that came with each of them. I liked that I was reminded constantly to stay strong and get through those tests. My small group leader also gave me some snacks, which I managed to have enough self-control to make them last a few days instead of minutes.
Something that I keep saying is “Don’t worry, this won’t happen next quarter.” Every time I catch myself saying that, I feel the impact of that statement on my heart. I really mean it this time! I’m hoping that I won’t be emotionally torn or pulled apart of upset, etc etc next quarter…but I have practical ways to make it work this time. None of that “I’m going to study as much as I can” kind of thing, but actual short-term goals.

Hi! Who is this?
Haven’t posted in a while.
I guess at some point I stopped wanting other people to see what I was thinking, or wanting the public to know a bit of me. I guess I now think my life isn’t interesting enough for other people to speculate over; I’m sure they have troubles and good times of their own.
College is what it is. I feel bad a lot for the things that happened the first 1.5 months I was here. It really has not been an easy ride for me, and it probably won’t get any easier. I’m glad to say that I’ve got some strong sisters supporting my back, and I’m trying my best to distinguish between good and bad friends, friends who truly love me and those who are just there to hang out. Of course you’ve gotta have both.
Too much work to do. I feel overwhelmed by my laziness. To be honest, I’m surprised at how lazy I am. Truly, honestly, surprised. I didn’t know I was capable of procrastinating this much! The problem is…it works. I don’t do much work, and I do okay. Maybe if I bombed one day, I’d perk up and feel inclined to do work. But I can’t wait for that day, can I? If I do…I’ll seriously be stuck in a mud pit again.

One thing after another. Just crushes me, crushes me.
My hope and my positive attitude slowly, and reluctantly, drifts away
Time waits for no one
"It’s just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ‘cause you are my heaven"
A Drop in the Ocean - Ron Pope

then we shall need each other.
To me, you will be unique in all the world.

Remind us all of what we could have been
Could have been"
