So it’s been close to a year since I posted. How ’bout that. Guess I need to be better with this, if not for personal amusement. Let’s have an update, shall we?
I have a year left in school before I can officially become a teacher, which is incredibly exciting! And yes, that’s right; I am going into education. I don’t know if I have posted that on here or not yet. It has been a fun ride, and it will continue to be so. I have a joke that I will be an eternal student, which suits me just fine. I love learning, so what better place to continuously learn than in a classroom?
Jason still has a little ways to go in school. He is changing his major. We’re still maaaadly in love–as we should be.
Eiros is still here, too. He’s gotten a little bit bigger, and he has been learning fast. If any of you follow my instagram (jlsaunders17), you know he gives kisses, gives high fives, turns around, is starting to dance, and does flips (his favorite trick). He’s even starting to say hello. He keeps us on our toes.
A lot has been on my mind with this new Spring season. A LOT. I don’t want to throw all my readers into my contemplative mind, but I will say my mind won’t stop spinning, which is good because I’ve learned a lot and grown. This past semester has been one of the hardest we have ever had to deal with. I won’t get into all the drama because it’s not worth digging it up, but I will say I have grown more and learned more this year alone than I thought possible. This semester has pushed us to our limits, but our limits have expanded. If there is one thing I have truly learned, it is that trials make us stronger. I know that is cliche, but life is one big cliche if you think about it.
I will add that trials only make us stronger if we are willing to learn from them. We have to allow ourselves to grow, develop, and learn from the hardships of life. When we do this, we can draw closer together as people or find betterment in ourselves. So don’t give up. Hold on to the ones close to you that you love and who love you. Keep your faith. And don’t forget to pray. After a semester of blood, sweat, and tears (literally), I know my family, hard work, and willingness to pray and find answers from Heavenly Father are what got me through this semester, and it will get me through the rest. With that, more adventures will come, creativity will abound, and I’ll be a better person through it all.
