Hey, fellow college students… I know. It’s hard. It’s really hard. I spent the entire day getting confused about what day it is and what timezone I’m in. I’ve missed multiple classes/been late for meetings/forgotten assignments/etc. No matter how many lists I make, how many times I write things down or how many sticky notes I put all over my room, I just can’t seem to keep a steady schedule.
There are so many feelings that we have, and they are all completely valid. You’re allowed to be disappointed, you are allowed to be sad and you are allowed to miss your friends. It’s okay. I miss my friends, I miss the city and I miss my friends that I made in the city.
Also, I don’t know about you guys, but my sleep schedule has been thrown out the window. I don’t do well without quality sleep. I’ve never been a “routine” person, but this is ridiculous. Staying awake until 2 a.m. and sleeping until 11 a.m. can’t be healthy.
Anyways, I just wanted to post a short encouragement piece to let you know that you are not the only one that can’t remember what day it is or lost track of how many Oreos you’ve eaten. This time of solitude is difficult, but I hope that we can treat it as a gift from God. We can use this time to answer a call he has given to us, to know him deeply and love him completely.
