As I enter the last quarter of the last year of my high school life (dramatic, right? XD), a lot of things are happening. Events, banquets, final papers and projects, graduation parties to plan (not to mention graduation itself); basically we're down to the crunch-time of my scholarly life, and I have every reason to be stressed and overwhelmed. So much is happening in so little time, so much is changing, so much is uncertain - it's very easy to feel lost at sea in all of it.
In some ways, I definitely am. How can anyone look at this transition from one lifestyle to the next without some sort of apprehension, uncertainty, curiosity? But amidst all the swirling feelings and emotions, my heart is strangely quiet.
Right now, when I should most be bursting with words and thoughts and actions, I feel, quite oddly, drawn apart from it all, as though some wide moat separates me from the field, and I'm looking on it from a distance. I have found a calm in all of this, even if at times I feel uncertain, and for that I am grateful.
What's new with you, friends?
