Felt cold, I’ll warm up later. (Brrr ) ❄️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Semester 1 in grad school done. Lesgedit. But I’m sorry, I didn’t do it. Made the commitment to take more pictures and I didn’t follow through. That’s not the only thing I didn’t follow through with, but alas, we here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The semester was great, mad challenging but filled with an adventure and realization that I can and will do this. So I’m thanking God for the start, the journey and the end. Also grateful for the other folk in this race with me: family, friends and the amazing amulet crazy peeps in my cohort. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But ‘lowlights’ is why I’m here. Wanted to try out this new feature/filter on the gram, where we talk lows instead of the highs. How fitting that this flick accidentally accentuates that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, as a share a few of my ‘lows’ I’ve had in these last couple of months, feel free to read and laugh at and with me, feel the need to pray for me (lol i needs it ) and feel the need to take me out for a meal — however, please don’t feel obligated to need to encourage or exhort. I’m trying out this new “filter” because IG paid me to. I’m sharing them because I know I could be better and have everything available and accessible to be better. So ‘lowlights’: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Boy I struggled. Getting readjusted with school and the mentality for an institute like UMD was an ongoing struggle throughout the semester. My diet caved. My blood pressure was on games. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I squandered a bit of consistency with my walk. At least in terms of persistence in prayer and the word, I struggled to find consistent effort. I was always reassured of His goodness and mercy, but man it was hard to stand. I tried to maintain standards and morals, and think I did for the most part, but self-control had been a wild trip. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Continued in next post )
