by the grace of God, i am awake right now. i was working on a research paper/project all night last night---i went to bed at 1:30am and then woke up at 5:30am to finish. I did in the nick of time! phew!
prayer really does work! i was focused, and kept my peace, and my mind on HIM this morning and was able to complete the assignment. PRAISE GOD!
now, the agenda for tonight: read articles for a presentation tomorrow, go to the campus' international holiday party for a little bit, and then do more reading, then go to an 'un-birthday' house program, and finish the night with Christmas music, tea, warm clothes, and an early bedtime!
