Week 8 is done. Praise the Lord. I was surprised by the rain on Monday because Sunday had been warm and sunny. Unfortunately, the rain persisted until Wednesday, so I could not go out and enjoy playing outside on the baseball fields, but one good thing came out of the bad weather: productivity. I was able to complete several assignments and study for chemistry and calculus, allowing me to catch up on sleep.
This week was full of people talking about the SOL/MFC/MAS banquet coming up on Saturday night. I have been looking forward to this event ever since they began promoting it. I believe I was the first person to buy a ticket! Besides the banquet, I am also going to be playing in the Newton Olympics. On Friday we are going to be playing gym sports like basketball, volleyball, and futsal. Hopefully, my floor does well in the events.
Overall, one thing that impacted me this week was Dr. Clark’s speech in the chemistry department’s colloquy. Dr. Clark demonstrated that like a piece of chalk, we are all ordinary, then he heated the chalk with a strong flame and a bright light was emitted, demonstrating that with God, we are extraordinary. In college, I have learned a lot about myself so far, and I know that I will continue to gain insight about myself. But most of all, I have come to understand God a lot better, and that’s what matters most.
