Ugh physics my favorite subject

Standard

Here I am casually sitting in the C4C dining center studying my favorite subject – Physics. For those of you who know me, you know I’m being sarcastic. I absolutely despise physics. It’s like automatic asphyxiation to my throat. That was kind of dark. Anyways, I have a physics midterm tomorrow that I started studying for yesterday, which I regret now not starting earlier.

On Monday when I should have been studying… I was at the theatres. Yay Salome. But before you sit here judging me, let me explain why this may not have been as terrible of a decision as it sounds.

I watched Interstellar. For those of you who haven’t seen it, watch it now. The entire concept was absolutely incredible. It blew my mind. The idea of gravity and how only specific forces and ideas can travel through dimensions, like, who comes up with this???

After I came out of the movie, I… appreciated physics. A lot more. Hahah, I actually found beauty in physics because of that movie. Not only that, I realized that there is a specific beauty to everything, including the way your simple coffee cup was designed to have a clean hollow mold to hold your hot chocolate and even the way water comes out from the tap. It’s beautiful. And now, while I cram the next three chapters tonight for tomorrow’s test, it’s not as dreadful as it used to be. It’s a different form of beauty that I have no reason not to appreciate. 🙂

You know it’s interesting because it always seemed like people who go through traumatic life events are so much more mature than I am. After going through a traumatic life experience, they seem to know who they are, what they want in life, you know? It bothered me because as shallow as this sounds, I wanted to go through a traumatic life experience in order to find myself, in order to become a stronger and more interesting person. Ridiculous, right?

I always remembered hearing that God will only put you through what you can handle (which I just found out is not actually written in the Bible, God says he won’t allow you to be tempted above your abilities). Despite all of this information that I just learned, my natural instinct was to think “Wow, God doesn’t think I can handle anything then…because my life seems SO extremely mediocre.” But, I was wrong. I realized that I have little problems that I’ve overlooked and haven’t fixed. There are problems that I’ve been avoiding and running away from. And although they are small, my situations are not any less valuable of an experience than someone going through a problem at a much more traumatic level. I mean, these struggles aren’t always as life changing, but these situations do shape me into who I am. And in reality, God knows exactly what he’s doing. He knows exactly what I can handle. And that is what became evident.
