Here’s to hoping that your day is full of promise and your coffee is abundant. I am currently experiencing the last Friday of my undergraduate career, which is weeeeeeeeird. Can you believe that I started this blog four years ago to record my adventures in college and now it’s all about to be over? I’m trying hard not to think about it.
Instead, let’s spend a second musing on these things…
One. Two words: doughnut chips. How? Why? Why did you come into my life at a time like this? Really not cool, Tasty. However, if you’re a human who can have all the delicious things, you better make them and report back to me ASAP. I’m not a believer quite yet.
Two. I’ll be spending lunch today listening to Arianna Huffington, co-founder of the Huffington Post, speaking about her new book The Sleep Revolution. All while I am downing coffee to compensate for the measly 5 1/2 hours I got last night. Such is life.
Three. Cheers for Harriet Tubman! This lady just landed herself on the $20 bill (sorry, Andrew Jackson…). It’s about dang time we saw some leading ladies on those dollars.
Four. If you keep hearing me talk about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and don’t quite understand why I’m willing to rap like Beyoncé or run 5Ks in crowns for it, then you should definitely read this post, and maybe make a donation while you’re at it?
Five. Read a really good verse in the Bible study on Moses from She Reads Truth yesterday: Moses is busy trying to solve literally EVERYONE’S problems, and his father in law steps in with some key advice:
“What you’re doing is not good. You will certainly wear out both yourself and these people who are with you, because the task is too heavy for you. You can’t do it alone.”
Can I get a holler and an amen for anyone who’s felt like they had to manage it on their own? Here’s the thing: you can’t. May as well shrug your shoulders, accept the fact, and ask for help. Can we promise to do that for each other? Cool.
Alright folks, that’s it from me! Next week, I’ll be finishing up exams and figuring out exactly what to do with that little piece of paper they call a diploma. In the meantime, bring on the weekend!
