A Common Denominator

It seems as though there has been a common denominator of the week=stress. Loads and loads of stress—which would explain why I haven’t been able to keep up with blog posting or even checking the blogs I follow. I’ve had test after test, assignment after assignment, interviews, meetings, studying, you name it, I’ve probably done it. Tuesday was the worst; my calendar on my wall looked INSANE it had so much written on it. I got so excited as I went through the day and was able to erase something off of it. The feeling of completion feels very nice.

I haven’t had the time to call my parents as much as I normally do, nor have I had time to read just for fun—which is something I love being able to do. But now, I’m done with classes for the day, and I have just 5 classes left of the week, and to be honest, I’m not really stressed out about them, and that’s something big, coming from me of course.

Because of everything that’s been going on, I also haven’t got to talk to Matt hardly any. Yesterday, I think we had a ten minute continuous conversation at 11:45 last night, and that was almost the only time we even talked to each other. When I have class, he doesn’t; when he has class, I don’t. Everything’s always just a hit and miss, and it’s way harder being 2 ½ hours away all the time. But luckily, in exactly 48 hours, I will be driving home, knowing that I’m leaving all school-related work behind, and will finally see Matt again that night.

I wouldn’t say that we have to “put up with each other” all the time. It’s more like, we have to find ways to work around our busy schedules and still have time for each other, but sometimes, it seems literally impossible. We haven’t been able to see each other as much this semester, and I’ll be the first one to admit that I hate it, but I survive. I’m so looking forward to being able to spend this weekend with Matt for Valentine’s Day.

God is amazing for helping me get through everything I had this week, and still for all that is to come.

I have to thank Matt, though, for “putting up with” my hectic schedule here and for being so understanding. I don’t say it enough how much I appreciate you, but I do.
