If you're part of my family, or you attend seminary regularly, you know that Thursdays is probably the worst day of the week. You're busy focusing on the weekend plans and you can almost taste them, yet they are still too far away. You're exhausted from your day to day living, getting up everyday at 5:00 in the morning and being gone from the house every day for 11 hours and 45 minutes.
I'm losing my fuel, my energy, my motivation. Although my trip is exactly a month away from tomorrow, May 1st, I still feel as though there is a year in between there and now. School is coming to a close, which means working my tail off to be successful when taking my finals and oh the excessive amounts of stress that usually brings, along with getting the grades I want at the end of the semester.
Seminary is almost done, and I'll be getting my Stake President's Award this Sunday (which seminary students earn for reading the New Testament, reading 200 days, memorizing 25 scriptures and reciting them twice, less then 30 tardies, making up all the missed days, memorizing the order of the New Testament books, First Presidency and the 12 Apostles), and I'm grateful for that.
I'm also getting inducted into NHS, National Honor Society, and I'm going to a showing of my artwork that went to the state reflections a few months ago. I'm grateful for all these great experiences, but they aren't helping me stay energized...if anything, they're wearing me out even more!
I'm running out on empty....I feel as though I can almost see the light at the end of this dark, lengthy tunnel. I hope I can get to it before I run out completely...just a few more weeks.....
