It’s always such a relief when you turn in assignments that you’ve been working on all semester! My accounting annual report project is finally done and turned in! I was very glad to finally be taking that burden off of my back, but at the same time I was really nervous because I need to do really well on it to pass the class. I have to get a C- to pass since it’s required for my major. It’s not impossible, but I definitely need to hit the books and grind it out for the last month of the semester. All I can do is work my hardest, not give in to distractions to slack off, and trust that God will deliver me from this trial and put me in the place He wants me to be in.
This week will be pretty crazy because I have an accounting exam on Wednesday and I have a consumer behavior project to finish by Friday. I know God will give me the strength and mental toughness to make it through and succeed. I’m also extremely thankful that God has provided me an oasis in which I can rest in and can trust for encouragement. My wonderful girlfriend is so great at listening to my many complaints about how much I don’t like school right now and always encourages me to keep going. She is such a blessing that I can forget about the world when I’m with her. I thank God for her everyday and how she is always there for me.
My new least favorite class of all time is Accounting. Some people are naturally gifted to excel at Accounting, and some can learn it if they try hard enough. Then there’s people who can’t even begin to understand how mental Accounting is and will pull their hair out before reconciling a bank statement. I fall into the third category of people…not only do I fall into this category, I define it. If it was a group on facebook, I created it! Right now I’m waiting to find out my grade on the first exam of the semester in that class. I despise that class so much that a bad grade doesn’t even affect me that much. I have a feeling that a lot of people from my class aren’t doing so well. I have several complaints about the teacher too, but I will keep my mouth shut so I don’t slander and gossip. My excuse for not getting upset over a bad grade is “none of this will matter in eternity”, but I need to get at least a C- in Accounting to pass and since it’s required for my major I reeeeaaallly need to pass it. So that excuse is not helpful anymore! All I can do now is work my behind off for the rest of the semester and trust that God will get me through and His will be done in Accounting class and if I have to take it over the summer then, oh well. If I have any prayer requests they would be that God would help me get through this class with a passing grade (C-).
I can’t wait til this week is over. Going to the Baltimore Blast game on Friday which should be lots of fun! There are several things to look forward too over the next couple of weeks. Youth Advance is coming up really quick, in just over 2 weeks! This is the first time going to YA for me so I’m pretty stoked! I’ve heard that God really chooses this weekend to act in people’s lives whether they’re attending or on the staff. That weekend is also the first weekend of my spring break! Stevenson always has early spring breaks. It can be good and bad having break so early, mostly bad though, because everyone else has a different break much later in the month. Nevertheless, break will be very relaxing and a good time to unwind a little.
