“…That I’m up to no good”
Because I’m about to put a whole bunch of Harry Potter memes in this post so…
As the first semester of my last year of college is coming to a close, I’m finding myself doing better than I could have thought. In fact, I’m doing so well that I’m currently watching “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” sitting next to a really, really pretty girl.
Nothing to complain about.
Which is actually strange. I noticed in the recent weeks that all I ever really do is whine, complain, and gripe. Whether it was about the stress of school, the stress of work, or the massive amount of idiots occupying the roadways; I somehow found a way to complain.
It truly is amazing what God will use to get a hold of you and shake you up. In this instance it was my constant venting to Makayla. I could tell that my stress and whining were becoming a burden to her as well, not to mention the fact that complaining is a matter of sin.
So, I’ve desperately tried to maintain the level of whining these last few weeks and it’s amazing how different I feel. I’m not saying there aren’t things to complain about, it’s just a matter of perception.
It could be worse.
I will say this, the moment my academic striving is over, will be a moment of utter release and joy. I have two more weeks in the semester and it will take everything I have in order to finish. Wish me luck?
I’ve started looking for apartments! A buddy of mine and myself have decided to move in together after this year is over and I can say that it’s exciting! I’m more invigorated about the prospect of finally having my own puppy but, I’m trying to contain my excitement.
It’s also a time of determination for me. I’m starting the Whole 30 diet on Tuesday. I’m not doing it to lose weight necessarily as much as I am just trying to be healthy. This food I constantly eat is destroying my innards.
With that said, I love Harry Potter. Random, yes, but true nonetheless. I know that as soon as I get done with this marathon I won’t know what to do with my life. I feel the sadness setting in….Ugh.
In the meantime, I’m going to most assuredly lose my mind because of school work. If that does indeed happen I’ll be sure to have some fun while it goes down. Christmas break is coming…I can taste the peppermint…I can sense the overlaying discontent with material things…and I can feel my 23rd birthday quickly approaching…(2 Weeks from today).
My dear blogging friends, I do hope you have had a fantastic thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas/Holiday season. Tis’ the season to be jolly! 😉
