10 Times Murphy's Law Applies To College Students
The Thought Gardener

Sometimes it seems like the forces of the world are acting against you. This is what a lot of people know as Murphy's Law. As college students, we have a particularly sour brand of it. I couldn't possibly list everything that happens in the life of a college student, but here are some of the particularly painful ones.

1. The coffee machine in the dining hall will be broken on Monday morning.

2. Your laptop will automatically update when you have a time sensitive assignment.

3. The day you forget your iClicker there's going to be a pop quiz.

4. If you're running late for class, forget about finding a parking spot.

5. By the way, if your car is one inch into a yellow curb, expect a ticket.

6. That paper you pulled an all-nighter to write? It just got pushed back a week.

7. You set that 6 a.m. alarm for p.m. instead of a.m.

8. The landscapers will be working bright and early on the one day you get to sleep in.

9. That one teacher won't cancel class for anything, not even a tornado warning.

10. Finally, when the day is over and you're ready to crash, your roommate is getting ready to throw a party.

Sometimes, you'll get hit with one. Other days, you'll get every single example on the list and more. Those are what we call Mondays.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

1942
God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
