I was reading in one of my books for class called “Darkness is my only Companion” by Kathryn Greene-McCreight today. I was bored and this book looks really interesting so I started to read it. Anyways, I found a quote that fits really well with my psychopathology class:
“Jesus did not come to remove suffering or to explain it away. He came to fill it with His presence.”
Paul Claudel (1868-1955)
I also randomly looked up the word “humectant” because it was on my shampoo bottle without any explanation. It means “retaining or preserving moisture” in case you were wondering like I was.
Also, it was my birthday on yesterday. Every time someone asked me how old I was, they commented on how young I was, but it made me feel old. I’m not sure why. Every year you gain more responsibility and the presents get less fun. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very thankful for the gifts I got this year! But you can’t rip open the wrapping paper in expectation anymore. Oh well, that’s life and that’s okay.
One last thought. I would love to go to school and only take like two courses so I could actually learn the material and I could learn stuff on my own. I don’t have any time to look up stuff that I want to look up and I have so much homework in each of my classes that I have to do it all as fast as possible in order to finish. I also have very little free time to hang out with friends. For example, as soon as I press “Publish” I will go back to reading my World Religions homework….and it’s Friday night. Oh well, life’s like that sometimes.
