This video really gets me… I’m not really huge into the contemporary Christian music scene, but this song really gets me thinking and feeling for those around.

Senioritis: a colloquial term used in the United States to describe the decreased motivation toward studies displayed by students who are nearing the end of their high school, college and graduate school careers
I’ve never suffered from this ailment before. Or, I’ve always suffered from it, but in no greater or lesser degree based on my proximity to graduation, until now. On Tuesday I was walking out of my “easy” senior year schedule, two intensive literature classes that I actually need to read for an hour or more for each class and a sculpture class that is constantly eating away at my free time. As I walked back to my car I had this intense feeling of, “I DON’T WANT TO BE HERE ANYMORE! I WANT TO GRADUATE AND BE DONE WITH SCHOOL FOREVER!!!” I’m am finding it very difficult to stay motivated in my classwork. I just don’t want to be in school anymore. I’m ready to move on with my life. I’m ready to get a job, get married, and enjoy what else life has to offer, other than college. May can’t come quickly enough!
You ever feel like your life is just going around and around, every week you do the same things at the same times, always trying to catch up to life but never able to. I feel like my life is a huge hamster wheel that turns and turns. I can never catch up or accomplish anything in particular, it’s just going around and around as I try to live. Fortunately, there is an end in sight. In May, college ends. In June, I move out of 45 Orkney. In July, I get married. In August, I am married and won’t be at teen camp. In September, prayerfully I am employed in a ministry job somewhere. Those are all new experiences. For now, I keep running on that wheel, strengthening my legs for things to come and when I finally can break out of that wheel and run free! Until then, I will run on that wheel as fast and as consistently as I possibly can.
I love her, and will let her know why in the card that I made. Most of the time, when people say “my future wife” or “my future husband”, the identity of said person is uncertain. I have the incredible joy of being able to say that phrase with only one person in mind. I love her and always will, for as long as I’m alive.
