Since Monday was officially a full month of quarantine and our school was supposed to go back on April 13, I have been disappointed. I did enjoy my month off, kind of like Christmas break, but it is starting to get old. I know we have summer break which is much longer, but I am participating in basketball and planning on seeing friends often.

We all at some point are seeking our purpose in some way or form. When we were young children the common question asked was, what do you want to be when you grow up? We all have different callings here on earth and each of us have assignments that are linked to that calling.

We were created to worship the one true God who is the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.

We have heard that everyone struggles with something or with multiple things and they can be small or big. Struggles stem from past experiences or from a current experience that is completely foreign to us. One of my struggles is letting go of situations that have reached out of my control. Before I have come to the end of myself and surrendered it to the Lord, I need to ensure that I did all that I could. I make sure that I dotted all my i’s, crossed all my t’s and if I’ve already exhausted myself in trying to make it look what I think it should look like, I break.
While beginning a healthy lifestyle, the majority of people think eating healthy means going on a “diet” and fail to follow through. A diet is restricting the food you consume for a period of time.

Two years into my collegiate career, maintaining a high level of academic success has been an achievable task. Upon reflection of how I got here and what makes me a successful student, I realized that one of the main drivers is my work ethic: The Feather Online.
