My Best [Academic] Week Ever

Forgive me for bragging, and I do admit this is a tad conceited, but I have to say--I rocked it this week, academically speaking.

For the past few weeks straight I feel like I have been running around frantically missing one class to study for another, breaking a date here or there to do reading in my bed, or more recently--pulling all nighters to finish long essays the night before they are due.  I was worrying that it was going to be in vain, but today I got a great dose of positive Reality!

People usually exaggerate their results on tests, but purely honest, this week alone I got:
-Highest score in the class on my statistics midterm... setting the curve :]  (Me, math?!?! What?!)
-94/95 on my HDev 357i midterm
-A+ (and a "this is EXCELLENT!") on my Psy 333 essay
-10+ (and a "this made my brain tingle!") on my Soc 335i Reaction Paper
-and to finish it off, today I received a 93% on my Psy 335i midterm that I just took this Monday.  I know it's an A-, but there were only 4 A's in the entire class and this Prof is NOTORIOUS for wicked hard tests... needless to say, I was soaring today :]

It's pretty amazing what God will do if you just give him space.  At the women's retreat one of the things that I took away was that I needed to incorporate God in my busyness instead of telling him to hold on.  I had been putting Him on hold while I tried to tackle my todo lists and study sessions and I was feeling more and more burdened.  When I rearranged my priorities and reorganized so that I was allowed to balance, REST, and ENJOY life..... the world didn't come to an end after all :]

You'll Always Be My Best Friend

To my best friend, protector, listener, problem-solver, leader, teammate, and comforter; my hero, thanks for a great five months, :] I never knew it was possible for me to be this happy every day.  Thanks for loving me the right way, through the hard stuff, and caring about the things that really matter.  God has blessed me abundantly.

if you were to leave and fulfill someone else's dream, I think I might totally be lost.

Take it from me, it's not always easy

Today I had my own award ceremony for myself, in my bed, for today I declare I have become a professional napper.  I used to never be able to nap, and now I can nap anytime, any place, and for those of you who don't know, that is a skill and a blessing.

Sweet dreams!

God is faithful.

This has been one of the most challenging weeks of my life.
