Friends, I’m sorry that it’s been a while since I’ve written. There isn’t really an excuse. But here I am again, perhaps procrastinating a little from my research week assignment, but I really did want to get a post out today since I haven’t posted in a while. So here are some of the things I’m thankful for in the midst of this mad assignment–writing week:
A package in the mail
This wasn’t a surprise because I ordered it myself, but I was surprised with how quickly it arrived. On Tuesday I got my gumboots!
I have complained twice on Facebook (and more times out loud) that I didn’t own a pair of gumboots. The first time was when I went to the show (you can read about it here) and it rained for half the day. I walked around with wet–sneaker feet all day.
I haven’t had a chance to wear these gumboots yet because it has been sunny all week (I’m not complaining about that) but when I do I’ll try to remember to take a picture to share with you.
There has been a sad pattern to my research week experiences. I’m not very good at staying on track (this may be partly my personality but I might talk about that in a different post). The assignment is so big it overwhelms me and I often wonder what I’m even doing at college at all. I’m not smart enough for this! So I get distracted and waste time on other things because I can’t face the fear of not being able to get my head around the assignment. But it’s a vicious cycle. The assignment looks bigger as the time left to do it gets smaller. But I am thankful to say that this week I have been pretty focused (aside from this small break, shh!). I prayed at the beginning of the week that God would help me to concentrate and to understand what I read, and while I’m not sure about the second part, I really do think that God has helped me this week. So this thanks goes to God.
I think I’ll stop there and get back to my essay. Thanks for the break!
What are you thankful for this week?
