Have you ever heard someone talk about their senior year?
Or, in the midst of your Junior year you make a comment about how tough
Junior year has been for you, and they pat you on the back and remark, 'Don't fret!
Senior year is a piece of cake! I remember when I skipped class with a bunch
of my friends and...' etc.
Yeah, I heard that too.
And they lied.
They ALL lied.
They don't tell you that the first semester of your senior year is pure H-E-double hockey sticks.
It is the college applications, the college applications essays, the school work,
the ACT prep, the scholarship worries...it is the dumps.
And on top of that it's a little emotional because you realize that a very prominent chapter
of your life is about to end.
You are faced with decisions about your life that you feel completely incapable of making.
Prayer becomes your best friend.
I'm not at the end of the tunnel quite yet, but when I get there, I'll smile and think of the times I was to the point of pulling my hair out -- it was worth it.
Because it's the climb (right, Miley Cyrus?) that makes anything worth receiving or conquering.
So if I'm a little infrequent with the posts, just know that I'm probably shoving my head in
a book or reviewing flash cards...or crying over these silly decisions.
But amidst all of this craziness, I still have a pretty stinkin' awesome life.
And God is still my refuge.
Has anyone else had this kind of senior year?
Is anyone going through this right now?
P.S. It's in the LOW 70s!
FALL HAS ARRIVED!
