1. Fall Break- I'm so grateful for fall break! Even though its just one day off from school, I feel like I could use the break to relax and take a breather half-way through the semester. I have finished most of my homework for the weekend, so I really won't have much work to stress over. It's important to stop every once and awhile with the busyness of life and simply reflect on what's going on in life, putting aside stress and deadlines and focusing on the present. I plan on doing just that this weekend!
2. I'm thankful for the dedication of my professors to help me learn more about the world around me as well as my identity. Baylor professors truly care about their students, and you can see their passion for teaching in their actions. I love that my professors actually care about how I'm doing and want me to succeed in life.
3. CF studies- I'm participating in a CF study online this coming weekend. I have to blog for an hour on a special site for three days. Studies are the only way scientists can discover more about cystic fibrosis. I'm so thankful that people actually want to know more about CF and the struggles I go through on a daily basis. Because CF is rare, the general population knows very little about it. Research studies help people learn more about how CF affects me personally. Studies also provide researchers with the data they need to discover new treatment therapies to help CF patients stay healthier longer. All kinds of studies are incredibly useful to the CF community!
