Reading Week

Ah reading week a time to pause in the semester, relax, and get caught up on all the papers and assignments. Well for me the first part is true, however the last part is not. 
 
My reading week was full of family time, relaxing time, reading time (books for fun not for school) and gym time. Seriously all I did this week was go to the gym, spend time with my family, watch The Vampire Diaries, and read Before I Fall and 13 Reasons Why. 
 
(I did also go get coffee with one of my oldest friends but there will be more on that in a later post.)
 
And you know what? 
 
I’m absolutely okay with that!
 
This break was just what I needed. I’ve been having some serious senioritis the past few months. Graduation is so close yet so far away and I have had no motivation to do my school work. 
 
After a week away from school I am reading to go back and press on until the end. I have about a month left of classes, then Easter break, then exams. After that I’m off to Cuba with my family and when we get home from Cuba I have graduation! 
 
In 8 short weeks I will be done classes, done exams, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts.
 
I can’t believe it! 
 
Anyway, my reading week was so so good. Even though I hardly got any homework done, I had time to pause and take a breather and sometimes that is more important.
 
I’ve been thinking of this verse for a little while as I look to the very close end of the semester. I need to keep my eyes on the prize and press on for the next little while. 
 
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus is calling us.”
Philippians 3:13&14
 
Thanks for reading,
