Randomness Friday: School's In!

Wow. This week has been something else. I've been homeschooled for over four years, and getting back to a public school setting- even if for half a day- is very interesting and challenging. I've never been so exhausted in my life as I've been these past three days. I'm looking forward to getting into some work, but at the same time, extremely nervous. Thank you so much all who prayed.

The funny this is, I was SO down yesterday. Utter hopelessness... confusion... a bit of sadness...
My mom could obviously see this, and she pushed me into my room with a, "Rest, and spend some time with God."

So I did...

And it gave me so much peace! I did my devos, prayed, and just closed my eyes for a while. It was incredible. I mean, really.

But I feel like I've no time! How to you public schoolers and private schoolers do anything???

Before, for me, it's homeschool/ get homework done (sounds like an oxymoron...).... relax...go to my regular evening activity... come back and chill with the family...bed

But, now???? Homeschool.... homework from that... school.... homework from that...evening activity...maybe some more homework...bed...

Then there's the effort of making friends. It's hasn't been too hard, but when everyone knows each other from their high school... I've been privileged to have some people include me. They rock... It'll probably take some time to get into it, I guess. The cliques or friend groups are already forming, and I don't ever want to intrude... *sigh* But it's not a total culture shock...
Yet, I'm starting to think that I'm missing the extremely focused atmosphere I have at this desk. (I do all of my courses online, so this is basically my schoolroom)

So for most of you, this is your first school day, so just know that I'm praying for you, whether or not I know your name.

God Bless,

Awww... Prism, I'm sorry that it was crazy! I'll be praying for you that things calm down and that you will be able to see little God things all over your life that will encourage and strengthen you.

Wow,
I go to private school and thought I have little time to do stuff I like school because of my friends.I don't know what's it like to switch from homeschool to public but sounds challenging

What an awesome coincidence. I had been homeschooled for four years when I started on Public School again last year. And I felt just like you... hopeless, nervous... and stressed. The time problem also worried me. But I got over it soon. You'll get used to it, I'm sure.^^
