In Retrospect

April 2, 2007

Someone told me a ways back “Don’t propose while you are still in school, it will just create more stress and load you up with another burden to worry about.” I didn’t believe them at the time, but I am noticing it is very true. However, I don’t regret my decision, not even for a minute.

This semester, while it should have been my easiest, has been my absolute hardest. My emotions have controlled me, and as a result, my grades are rather poor. I’ll most likely be on academic probation at semester’s end. Somehow, though, I feel as if even if I fail out, there’s a reason (note to parents/concerned folks, I am not planning on failing out). I realized that I can get in to missions in so many ways that in 15 years my college degree will just be for show (well, I’ve actually learned quite a bit about construction engineering and management, so that isn’t entirely true).

Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
