I spent this day in planning my goals for the remainder of this year. I have put the pressure on myself to work harder on my other school subjects by forming a new daily schedule (yes, one of those again).

I really have nothing to complain about or dilly-dally on. I have a lot of work to do – most of which is probably different from the majority of highschool girls in the nation (homeschooled or otherwise) simply because my family has been put in a different situation. GOD gives all of us plenty of time to fulfill HIS will for our lives. We are merely required to be willing and diligent. Oh, and have that other little factor: discipline.

Abigail, my 9 year-old sister, has better discipline at her age than I did, I believe. She works consistently on her subjects just a little bit each day – often times voluntarily on the weekends. Mary, age 7, is developing that nice habit too.

I have always been willing and eager in my attitude towards studying (though math has been my main flaw). I was always considered smart enough to be above average, and I liked to study independently.

But sometimes I struggled with a little piece of foolishness that would spoil my day.

There were days when I lacked the discipline to carry some problems through. I have memories of struggling over a single math problem for at least 20 minutes and then feeling horribly guilty when I got it wrong. At the end of the lesson I would feel burned out but unaccomplished.

That was a ridiculous, perfectionistic hang up of mine, not to mention an abuse of time. I had a hard time acknowledging to simply learn from my mistakes and resolve to move on towards the finish line.

I highly resolve to never be even remotely like that again.

MAY GOD BLESS,

~Amanda~

Post Scriptum – My goal is to have the screenplay ready for production by August 1, 2007 – LORD willing. In between then I might still be able to fit in some Washington, D. C. research!

Hello Amanda,
You have a beautiful blog. I just created a blog dedicated solely to history. Mainly the Revolutionary and Civil wars. I read some of your other posts and I find them very upliftling.
My main weakness is also math. I would love to hear from!
