And I'm Actually Counting Down This Time.

Whooo. I'm out of steam.

And with

27 days,
3 papers,
2 edits,
2 charts,
2 final exams,
and plenty of reading before I get to that point...

It's not really an opportune time to be dreaming of vacations.

Because deep in my heart of hearts, I want to finish this race as strongly as I started it. And I'm not just referring to the start of this actual program, but more like of my collegiate career. No, actually I'm referring to my schooling in general.

Its been a race of
countless projects,
many speeches,
a few really late nights (some from high school that were with my mom that were especially fun),
a few science projects with my dad,
more homework assignments that I can imagine,
so many papers that I have blocked them from my mind as to avoid permanent damage (just kidding, sort of),
and many, many tests,
that have occurred over a period of almost twenty-one years. 

So really,

27 days,
3 papers,
1 possible quiz,
6 more homework assignments,
2 edits for other peoples work,
2 research and library charts,
2 final exams,
and plenty of reading

is very little in the race that I've pretty much run my entire life.

And I must finish this race strongly.

So I'm praying for myself.  For perseverance and for endurance in the final days of this particular journey, and for peace about what will come next.

It is in His hands, and he will give me what I need to close this one out.

Until then.

I'm still here. And I'm still writing,
