From the warm sunshine and the colorful, budding trees to the chirping birds and the flowering daffodils, you can tell as soon as you step outside that spring is finally here. It was a long, cold winter here at Southern. Now spring is here, and along with it comes something just as wonderful.
Thirty-eight days left in the semester.
It sounds so amazing. It makes me scream and jump for joy! With summer plans starting to get set in stone, this makes me so excited that the summer is on its way! However, the fact that there is 38 days left means something else, something not as wonderful:
There are only 38 days left to pull grades up.
Students who, like myself, were unhappy with their mid-term grades have just 38 days to pull their grades up. Hearing that turned my joy into worry, anxiety, stress, sorrow, etc. How is this going to happen?! This is what was going through my head. With school as hectic as it is and it coming to an end, it's easy to panic. I know I sure do. Thankfully, I don't let the waves of stress and panic drown me. It's at times like this that I turn to the only person I know that can help me: God. If it weren't for Him, I'd surely drown. Turning my worries over to Him gives me peace. I know that He's got my back, and that He'll give me the strength to make it through these final 38 days. So because of Him I'm not worrying about what my final grades will be. I know that He's gonna give me the strength to do my best.
With His help, I will pull my grades up to where they need to be. I will handle my hectic schedule at school. I will do my very best in all my classes. With His help, I will not only survive but conquer this semester.
