The Jerry Falwell Library hosts “De-stress Week” during the same week as finals week. The library plans coloring and puzzle parties, invites therapy dogs, and even provides hammocks for students to enjoy. During one of our study breaks, my friend Mandi and I went to check out the scheduled events for the day. We were super excited, but my stomach was doing somersaults because I brought along my camera. You see, that study break was more than just a break from final exams prep; I was breaking away from my comfort zone. I filmed my first vlog that day.
After rendering my first vlog and finishing my third trip down the gauntlet of finals week, I’ve decided that tackling final exams is similar to conquering comfort zones. I’ve learned that there are three necessities for any adventure: friends, plans, and trust. With a group of friends, a solid plan, and your trust in God (Philippians 4:6-7), anything is possible, even an adventure outside of your comfort zone.
Check out my first-ever vlog below! We laughed a lot, played with puppies, and -spoiler alert- even flipped out of a hammock or two :)
