If you’re like me, this holiday is almost pointless… I am only a High School student who had vowed not to be in a relationship until she is eighteen or older. Wow.
But you know, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just about the couples. It can be about families, friends, maybe even your pets.
As this day has been approaching I have been feeling rather gloomy, because I would like some appreciation from someone other than my family and my girl friends, but I also know that would distract me from my true purpose, especially at my age.
I feel as if the internet and advertisement campaigns make a huge deal about this day, and don’t get me wrong, I think Valentine’s Day is nice, and I don’t criticize couples who take advantage of it. But what about all of the young girls that are feeling left out, and then go and do something stupid because they weren’t a part of all of this?
Today, my Valentine’s is Jesus.
I am going to honor Him, love Him, respect Him, and trust Him with all my heart, because He is the one who is truly watching out for me.
This post may seem rather open ended, but I will leave it at that.
God bless, and here’s a rose for each of you. 🙂 🌹
My question for You: Do you have any special plans for today?
I just recently finished one of my school subjects and am nearing the end of another, so I feel very proud of myself.
This post is just a summary of the things I have been studying since the beginning of this school year, and more that I will be adding on soon.
For starters, I began a chemistry class at a nearby Homeschooling Resource Center. It has definitely been helpful keeping me accountable to do my reading/studying.
Also at the Resource Center, I took an Apologetics course, studying Christianity and how to explain to others what I believe. Along the way, I read a book by Timothy Keller titled The Reason for God, wrote a book report on same said book and gave a speech on what I learned and my reasons for why God exists. This class was a huge help for me in my faith. I now know how to battle arguments against God, and how to explain why I believe what I do.
Outside of the Resource Center and my home, I continued piano lessons with my aunt as I have done for many years. I have learned a great deal, and have been given the opportunity to perform some amazing pieces at recitals.
I have also been taking my second year of Spanish with one of the most amazing teachers besides my mom. I absolutely love languages, so this class has been a favorite.
At home I have been studying the following subjects:
Psychology (which I finished last week!)
I have had two more classes begin this week, as Apologetics and Psychology are over, and they are both at the Resource Center. They include Photography and Story Writing!!! I am super excited to see where these take me. 🙂
These are my notes and curriculum for Psychology. 🙂
My question for You: Do you prefer to be super busy, or have a lot of free time?
