30 day blog challenge day 17. How my school life has been so far

walking to school


It was everything I hated about life, Waking up early, having to go to bed early, learning about boring subjects, being around strange cruel people, no phones, no hats, no freedom. School felt like kid prison, but only for 7-8 hours. Everything about was horrible to me.

As I have said in previous posts I wasn’t the most popular kid in school growing up. Thankfully this would  turn out to be a blessing. As a child it made me feel like a loser, but as I got older I realized the smaller your circle of friends the less drama you have in your life.

Once I got to college, school became a lot more pleasant because with college you get freedom, you get independence, you can wear hats, use your phones and go to the bathroom without a pass lol.

But all jokes aside I enjoyed college a lot in my first semester. When I got to my second and third semester things changed and it was a steady moral decline from there. I began to see that the world around me is much darker and different than the little world I’m used to living in. I realized in the real world a lot of people don’t believe in God and actually despise the idea of a God.

I went to school for nursing so I took a lot of science based classes. A number of my science professors would teach as though science has it all figured out and would take jabs at religion. This combined with the fact that the profession I am entering into is underpaid and overworked made me rethink college all together. Basically to be a nurse I’d have to get my bachelors degree and spend several years of my life working to pay off student loans. Needless to say as time went on I lost more and more interest in school and the nursing field.

With that being said my new goal is to attend a theology school learn more about God and His word and become an evangelist. This should give me a whole new feel of what school is like.

  1. Theology school, that’s really neat! So does this mean you’re going to be “Pastor Julian”? Lol!

    I also wasn’t one of the popular kids in school, but I agree that it saved me a lot of drama. I saw some of the stuff my classmates dealt with and I was like “Yeah, I don’t need that.” Lol!

    This post actually came at a very appropriate time, as today was my first day of college! Overall it went pretty well, but it was a little weird being in a non-Christian environment. I overheard one guy talking about natural selection and I was like “OK, not in Christian subculture anymore!” Nothing was too crazy though. I was literally worried I’d have a God’s Not Dead situation on my hands, but I didn’t, so that was good.👍🏻

    1. my goodness yayy 1st day of college?!? and my goodness I know it was my first time being around avid non believers when I started college as well. what’s your major? and hahaha I had a God’s not dead kind of moment in my third semester with a professor that kept jabbing at religion but at the time I wasn’t brave enough to take a stand. I wish I could take that professor all over again with what I know now.

      1. Communications/journalism. And wow, that must be rough. I haven’t really had any of those moments yet, but I was literally anticipating the worst after seeing that movie. Thankfully so far everything is going pretty well. I think my Public Speaking professor may even be a Christian. He warned everyone not to forget homework “Because if we do he’ll give a lecture and none of God’s children want that!” LOL! I was suprised that he said “God” in a secular school but I was also very happy about it! 😂👏😄🙌

      2. It is always great hearing from you! No need to ask for forgiveness as I don’t see you being busy a form of trespassing against me lol! With all that goes on around the hospital I’m surprised I even have time to do what I do on here. As you can see it is taking me 3 months to finish a 30 day blog challenge LOL. Our beautiful baby girl is due December 24th 😀 and I am all to excited to meet her. Rebekah and I are reading bible stories to her already hahaha. and you are welcome prayer is the least we can do for family! Also you should get yourself an instagram and post cool pictures of your classes and lecture boards and stuff haha if you ever have the time. I’m sneaking my way into your apologetics classes. Also thank you very much for the prayers for my journey, it is going to be a long road for me so I will definitely need them hahaha!!!!!!!
