Just me, my face, my clothes, my food, oh yeah...and my thoughts!

I haven’t been doing many outfit of the day posts lately. This is, in fact, NOT because I haven’t been getting dressed! I’ve sort of gotten a bit lazy into this semester, and by the time I get out of bed…get ready, etc. I leave myself little time for anything but sprinting to the car!
This past year has been such a blessing to me, I know I’m in no position to complain. I have a loving family, supportive friends, and the best boyfriend. God has graciously helped my family overcome the hardships we’ve been faced with over the past couple years, and things are working together for good. I’ve lost family members, and gained a few more. Everyone says this, but if someone had told me a few years ago this would be my life today… I wouldn’t believe them. And really for the most part, though difficult, all the changes have been good.
I have so many positive influences, and amazing role models in my life. My career aspirations have been to become a social worker. Last year I applied and although I had good grades, I didn’t get in. The program is so competitive. This year I worked so hard, and dedicated myself to school. Unfortunately, last week my heart broke and I became very discouraged. Even though my gpa for both semesters was 4.0 this past year, I again did not receive my anxiously awaited acceptance letter. Instead, I was placed on a waiting list with “29 other promising applicants”.
I know I shouldn’t waste time being crushed and upset, but this came as a blow to me. My Dad suggested to me, the potential that this may not be Gods plan for me… Despite the plans I’ve made myself.
Right now I need to keep looking to the future, and continue to think of other paths. If I’m accepted, or if I’m not, I have faith that there is something suited to me that will allow me to make a difference while still being able to maintain my own happiness. Maybe, that won’t be Social Work for me.
I just need to get through this last night of studying… And then I have a small break from exams. Unfortunately the break isn’t also from projects, labs, and papers.
