Tired already

I forgot how stressful and busy semesters are. It’s the third day and it feels like I’ve been doing this for months. This may be a hard semester, but I’m trying to stay positive about it. I pray for (because I need) a lot of strength.

I changed my major to Industrial and Systems Engineering. All thanks to God for allowing it to be a smooth and quick transition! Really, it could have been a mess (as I was expecting it to be) especially when the Air Force gets involved.

Semesters are not only physically exhausting for me, but extremely emotionally taxing. Already I’m feeling it. I see so many people each day, and they each are going through something major, and it weighs me down. Maybe I care too much, but I really suffer with others, and when someone is experiencing an unjust or unfair circumstance I feel helpless for them. I guess it’s teaching me to trust God with everything, including things that I really don’t have much to do with.

Tonight at RCIA we talked about Haiti and it breaks my heart. Those people have been through so much only to be devastated again. Is there really anything else I can do but pray? God help those people! I better go to bed. Good night!


  1. Thank you so much for posting the prayer button for Ray and for praying for him. He died Friday before he was removed from the respirator. The way he died was easy and a blessing to Noelle.

    Good luck with your semester.

  2. I will continue to pray for him and Noelle.
