Well, September is now officially over. It was a crazy first month, it seemed like it took everyone a little longer to settle into their schedules this semester, and I had no pardon in the matter.
I finally got a new way to document what goes on, a Flip camera. Right away when I set it up, a good friend of mine strolled up, our very own Dean of Students:
Its always great to run into him, I always get to learn different things about my parents and their journey at APU. (For those of you that didn’t know, both my Dad and Mom went to APU, they actually met at a preview weekend at the McDonald’s across the street. My dad won nationals in the 400 Hurdles on the track team also, he still has records which can be found in the track section of the APU website. Back then, Terry Franson was his coach, so I used to hear stories about our Dean all the time.)
As the week went on, I learned a lesson in Priorities. Its hard juggling so much and figuring out what is a higher priority when each one seems equally important. If it were up to me, I would just be an RA, that one is my favorite, just hanging out with my residents and putting on events for them, making sure they are alright, going on slurpee runs…
So great. We also have to make sure their health is ok with all these “influenza-like symptoms” floating around, but us RA’s have that covered ;)
Oh my staff is so wonderful!
In my priorties lesson, I had to remember one thing, something that our school strives on and is built off of, and that is the Lesson of God First! I need to strive to remember that for the rest of the year because everything just seems to fit into place when God is deliberately put into the picture. I always forget that that is the main lesson every APU student gets to learn.
