Heavy load

This week was like a heavy, loaded backpack that strained my spine, beating my body to its fullest extent so that I almost thought of nothing else but rest. Early in the morning, when I'd wake up and notice everyone still sleeping, I'd feel as if another burden, this time a different one, had been placed on me, and that as the day would progress, that burden will increase until I could no longer bear it.

This week was likewise emotionally stressful. Jef Sala, a good friend and a brother in Christ, has left the country for good. His family is already in the US and his parents have decided that he'd study Pharmacy there. I asked him why he wouldn't take up Molecular Biology, but apparently, peoples' minds change. I wouldn't be able to see him vis-a-vis, unless of course we do the webcam chat, something which the University's Terms of Network Service prohibits.

This week was mentally stressful. My brain, if it is still functioning at its prime, must look like a rotten mashed potatoes inside. There are just so many things to remember, from derivatives to tangential acceleration to oxidation to the Mol Bio Central Dogma, and I can't seem to process everything.

Thank you, Lord, for the lessons You've been teaching me.
