You know what I’ve always enjoyed… sitting on the bus facing backwards, because when you do that, you are watching time pass by. I always found it interesting because, at 50 km/h, time is going by.
Its already mid-third year.. where has the time gone? Feels like just yesterday when I entered university. (I swear I’ve said this every year) Actually it doesn’t really feel like yesterday. It did last year. Now I just feel panic that I’ll be graduating in a year and a half. I guess thats what happens when you pass the mid-way mark. Congratulations, you’re officially half-way through an undergraduate degree. Whoopie!
I never thought that I’d be where I am right now when I entered uni.. never thought I’d meet the people I have, or experienced and grown from those experiences the way I have. Every year I become more aware of the passage of these 4 years. I was told that they’d go fast ever since I was frosh, and now I’m saying that to the froshies this year. And they’re saying the exact same thing I did… “Yeah yeah..” not really believing it. But they’ll see. I’m at the age where I first met Jon, Dan and all the other older ones. I honestly thought I’d never make it to that age and be in that position to be called “upper years” (aka oldies). But here I am, contemplating this when I’m supposed to be studying.. How things have changed since first year. Of course I miss the way things used to be back in first and second year, but its a good different now. I love living with my housemates.
So now that its 3rd year, marks really start to count, since master’s apps look at your last 20 courses (3-4th yr). But I gotta keep my focus. Its not just about marks and how those marks can contribute toward continuing to post-graduate studies or trying to get a dietetic internship. Its about what I’m doing for God with these last 2 years I have left. How I can serve Him the best that I can and let Him guide me to where He wants me. Gotta find that balance between putting effort into school and giving it up to God to take control of.
