It’s Now Or Never

I realized today that there are so many opportunities here at MU that I wish to participate in, but cannot because there are only 24 hours in a day, and so I split my time among being a leader at Asian Christian Fellowship, helping out whenever I can with Asian American Association, and occasionally being a student.
I would like to join the feminist organization.
I would like to join magazine club because it would probably offer some significant insight into the industry.
I would like to spend more time with people from my church, because I still don’t know 92% of the people there.
I would have liked to run for an executive officer position for AAA because I know I’d be good at it.
I would have liked to join APhiG, the Asian-American sorority, to befriend a group of women I don’t see very often.
I would have liked to work part-time to obtain extra spending money.
But I don’t have the time. As it stands now, I have some kind of meeting every Mon-Thurs night, so there is no available time for another group.
And so I grasp at what little options I have. I am currently working with a conversation partner from South Korea once a week. A friend asked me to join his not-yet-assembled funk band next semester, and I readily agreed. I’m studying abroad next spring.
The impending graduation of this year’s seniors makes me wonder what kind of regrets I will have when it’s my turn to leave the college bubble. For now, I feel at peace with the priorities that I have selected, but what will my future self think? What does God want for me?
