A "Thank You" To God At The End Of The Semester

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

A "Thank You" To God At The End Of The Semester

Before we head any further, take a moment to celebrate the fact thatyou have survived another semester!

This is no small accomplishment and you deserve to revel in your success. Regardless if you have completed your first semester of college or your last, you have put forth quite a bit of effort to be where you are today. Allow yourself to be proud of these moments and consider where these lessons have taken you.

But, while you are reflecting on the past few months and every crazy, wonderful, and sometimes terrible moment, be sure to also consider who supported you throughout this time. Of course, this means the friends, family, and other mentors who built up your support system, but we cannot forget who was there during it all.

Remember the nights you were frustrated as you studied into the wee morning hours? Or, the times you were upset because you did not achieve the grade you expected on an assignment or exam? Who consoled you and promised there would be a better tomorrow? He did.

Remember the days where it felt as if everyone was against you? You felt as though there was barely enough time to breathe, to complete all of your tasks and care for yourself appropriately. Who reminded you that you have the ability to accomplish anything you set your mind to? He did.

Remember how it felt when you overcame the obstacles of last semester? No matter how minor they ended up being, you experienced valid emotions over exasperating situations. Who knew and encouraged you that these struggles would pass?

God was with you every step of this semester. He was there to help you through the inevitable tribulations. He was there when you felt completely alone. And, He is here now to remind you what an incredible being you are. God loves you in every state of your life. No matter what emotions you are experiencing, He is with you.

Once again, congratulations on your success this semester. Your efforts have been noticed by the one who is always there.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
