so, tomorrow is the freshman day at Lincoln East High school. Home of the spartans woot. Why this effects me, the newly dubbed upper-classman…. Penned club booth. Tomorrow I have to man the booth for the writing club and call young shy freshmen out and get them interested in coming to our meetings. sounds fun right? sure. whatever. This represents a very interesting turn in my life. I am no longer the sidelines person…. I’m right in the middle of the frenzy for this upcoming school year. I was on my way home from a long and arduous show choir reheasal today when I was taking a drink from my water bottle while excellerating towards a green light and thinking about getting into crashes. this made me think of death and dying which in turn led my thoughts to epitephs. What would mine say? Probably “Grace Menter: the girl that tried too hard”
But no matter how hard I try to make everything run smoothly and my whole school year to be in line and be prepared for every eventuality…. I still fall short. I thank God that he has given me the patience to deal with stress in stride and not freak out. when my counselor saw my schedule she flipped. It’s going to be hard for me to handle the stress, especially with my piano students and youth group going through a transition time…. and I’m not going to lie and say I’m prepared because frankly, I’m scared enough to poop my pants. But I know that God has everything under control and he’s going to help me through, and that where I am at is exactly where he wants me to be right now. so this shouldn’t be a scary time for me. I look forward to an adventure with God, not a stress-filled insane Junior year that every senior I have ever known has complaned about. no, this will be a good phase in my life. I refuse to let it be bad. this will be an adventure.
