Day 15 – The Lenten Journey of Sid

I am definitely on the road to recovery. Thank You Jesus! I’m feeling better and not as weak as I’ve been feeling. It has been way too long! I feel like I’ve been on bed rest since Saturday. I think my body has been stressed out. Someone asked me if I have heard back about my Ph.D. application yet and it finally clicked in. I really do think that my body has been subconsciously stressing out about this whole thing. I may have suppressed such emotions but my body knows the truth. They told me that I should hear by the end of Feb. and that day is fast approaching.

I need to focus more on God during this time. I feel like He’s not as much of my focus as I want Him to be. Oh Lord, give me the strength to follow after You.

Day 13 – The Lenten Journey of Sid


Today, I found out that a girl that I liked is now engaged. I am super happy for her. While I don’t really know the guy, I can tell that he makes her happy and that he would take good care of her. However, I think I would be lying if I said it wasn’t hard to hear that news. The emo part of me put Adele’s “Someone like you” on repeat for at least an hour. After that, I had to stop otherwise I would get more depressed. It doesn’t help that I’m still sick.

The rest of the day was basically spent trying to process this new information and not getting depressed. It was quite a feat to try and manage that. I was also supposed to meet up with a friend today but decided that resting is probably the wisest choice I can do. Today was just a really tough day physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Day 10 – The Lenten Journey of Sid

I woke up this morning and I knew I was going to be sick. True to form, I was. I went to work and as the day unfolded, I kept feeling worse and worse. I had dinner, went home, and I’m going to sleep pretty early. It’s been awhile since I have slept before midnight. Oh, do I ever need it!
