So, the past couple of months (heck, for the past year), I've been playing a couple of games with God. I ask him for favors (for example, straight A's), and then "play" guessing games with Him, "challenging" (not really challenging, for I can never be as superior as God), but challenging him that if I find my pencil, I'll get straight A's or if I eat my dinner without any hesitation, I'll get straight A's or if I remember to wake up at 5, I'll get straight A's or if I...and hopefully, you get the point.
Today, we got our report cards and for the fifth year in a row, I've gotten straight A's. I was ecstatic and delighted that God has given me so much...and I thank Him every night and every day and merely every second I'm alive. However, it sometimes scares me that I have it all...that I'm achieving this "perfection"...or getting what I ask for.
I know. I should never complain, and I'm definetely not complaining, but I'm just worried that this might all stop. This "good luck"...maybe God's help might stop...and then I'll drown...and be completely and utterly lost. 
Ironically, I began typing this at 11:11...oh boy, the good luck keeps coming...



  1. Always remember that God is good.:D

  2. Wow. I'm so jealous.
    I wish I had straight A's five years in a row.

  3. I think it's good to challenge yourself to make good grades and be thankful for the things you have. I made a lot of A's in high school (though not as many as you) but when I got to college my perspective changed. I looked at each class as how can I use this in my future career instead of what do I need to do to get an A. My grades are still good, but I put loads of extra effort into the classes that really matter to me. It works for me. I think you have to figure out what works for you and just go with it :)

  4. aww congrats on your good grades!!

    I do that a lot too, the whole "pray to God when I need something." especially when I lose stuff, which is all the time..:/ i feel bad, but it sorda helps! haha..

  5. @Marie: Thank you. You're right: God is always good.

    @Sadia: aw. Don't be. I bet you're amazing as well. :)

    @Bethany: I agree with exactly what you said and that's why I can't wait until I'm in college where tiny, little grades in pointless classes (history?) won't really matter. I want to study oncology and I guess, a lot more sciences, so all this other learning we do in highschool...well, I'm ready to be done with it.

    @Anna Yan: thanks! haha. Yes, but I also try to pray to God to thank him. :)
