Lately, I haven't been blogging as much as I should and as much as I want to. It's not that I don't have anything to talk about; I just find myself being EXTRA lazy. But how can I be so lazy when this is something that I love to do? How can I not give my all in to something I think about all day everyday? These are questions I ask myself. I know the things I need to do and what I need to do to improve, but why the hell am I not doing them?
I find it so amazing how God can answer your questions through other people. As I was sitting around and doing nothing, I get a phone call from a friend of mine. He tells me how he wants to start a blog and would like for me to help push him and edit his work. I was extremely excited but I thought to myself, how could I help him when I can't help myself? It was then that I realized -- this was all God's plan. He heard my prayers when I asked him for help. He knew I needed that extra push. Someone who can uplift me, tell me I'm slacking, but inspire me to do better. He asked me questions like, "What's going on with your blog", "What's going on with your Youtube channel", and "What's going on with your show". As I answered, he felt like all my answers were nothing but excuses. lol. Although they were all true, they do sound like excuses.
I shared that story to say this: We all have our moments in life where we start something but don't finish. I understand we go through things in life and sometimes life can block certain things for that moment. Get it? I said moment!!!! We have to have the ability to GET UP and TRY AGAIN. Think about what you have to do to complete what you started. Also, keep in mind that God answers all our prayers; we just have to listen to him. He will send people to you on purpose, and you have to help him help you. Never give up on something you think about daily, and ALWAYS finish what you start

When going back to college you either can be excited or nervous. Excited to learn so you can finnish what you started, or nervous because this is something new and you hope for a successful semester. You also can experience both. Being excited and nervous is normal and eventually both of those feelings will fade away. Once the semester starts rolling work can get intense, but hopefully you have picked your school friends wisely.
Believe it or not having school friends is really important. They want the samething as you, good grades and that degree. It may be things you don't understand, don't have the time to seek extra help from the professor, but your school friend can help you. You may not feel too good or something may come up to where you have to miss class, but your school friend can provide the notes for you.
You have to understand when it comes to college meeting new people is required. These people become your biggest fans, know your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to learning. You're not forced to talk to someone you don't know, majority of the time you can make your college friends yourself. Exchange numbers and emails so you both can talk outside of school. Create study dates that works for you both, and always keep in contact.
Don't have the attitude you can do everything by yourself and don't need anyone. I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for the friends I made in college. Sometimes the connection grows deeper then just talking in class you may notice you actually made a real friend. Good luck to everyone starting the new semester!! Go strong!
