It’s 10:50 p.m. and sleep is still not next on the agenda. What a day. I have no complaints though, it’s been very productive- everything seemed to fall in place. There was a time when I wanted to plan EVERYTHING, and the moment something didn’t fall through I’d get upset. Now I know better.
I started the day with a prayer- thanking the Lord for waking me up and asking for his assistance throughout the day. With so much on my plate I knew I’d need him. I knew that if I did my part that EVERYTHING would fall into place.
And it did. Everything flowed gracefully.
The only thing that irked me was that I wanted to write (you know writing makes me happy) and there were several ideas that I came to me, but I was too busy to stop and write! At this point, it’s now 10:54 p.m. and I’m forcing myself to sit and write.
Let me share my day with you:
7:15 a.m. – I forced myself to start attempting to get up. Thanked God for waking me up and asked for his assistance while I wrapped my head around everything I knew I had to do today.
7:30 a.m. – Roll over and grab my Public Administration to make more progress on my reading. (The quiz was due today @ 7:00 p.m.)
8:00 a.m. – Jump up, turn music on, hop in shower, as I think of what I wanted to wear for the day. My mind was on comfy and cute. I decided on a casual dress with red Converses.
9:00 a.m. – Start my day at work and half-heartedly listen to customers as I simultaneously work on homework.
12:30 p.m. – Take off from work so I can write a paper (also due at 7:00 p.m.) and complete the quiz.
1:45 p.m. – Receive the recommendation letter from a professor that I’d been waiting on. This was making me nervous because the deadline for the internship is tomorrow! I even reached out to another professor just in case, but it came through at perfect timing.
2:00 p.m. – Drive to RSU, which is 30 minutes away to pick up the recommendation letter and my official transcript.
3:25 p.m. – Arrive back at work with 5 minutes to spare.
6:00 p.m. – Head back to RSU for night class Intro to Public Administration.
9:00 p.m. – Leave RSU to go pick up Maraya from her dads.
10:00 p.m. – Stop at Braum’s and give in to Maraya’s request for a strawberry shake. (Hey, I haven’t seen her all day. Leave me alone.) I also grabbed me a burger. Did I mention the only things I ate today were: yogurt, Girl Scout cookies, and trail mix?
10:30 p.m. – Get Maraya in bed. Laugh and pray with her, then kiss her goodnight.
10:50 p.m. – Sit and write this.
SEE WHAT I MEAN?!? TODAY HAS BEEN EXTREMELY PRODUCTIVE!
2 things to hear from this:
1. College is not easy.
2. Time management and prayer sustain me! 🙂
