Its been a while since I’ve written constantly on my blog. Most of the reason for this has been because I was super busy and stressed this semester with school. College just gets harder and harder each semester.
This semester one class I particularly dreaded and stressed the most over was Psych Statistics. I am not a math person. A person can ask me to count or add or subtract, and my mind feels like its doing jumping jacks. I have my final for this class Monday. Wish me luck.
Now that I am on my winter break I have come up with a list of goals for the new year. They aren’t wild leaps but reasonable changes.
My first goal for 2019 is to meditate. I used to meditate, but that habit was distracted by the overwhelming schedule I had. I barely had time to focus on my mental well being — big mistake. No matter how busy or hungry you are for success, mental well being comes first. I need to find what will make me feel content and that is focusing on my emotional needs while on this journey for success.
Another goal I have for myself is to learn to be happy on my own. I have a habit of letting people overstay in my life because of fear of being alone. I learned that I am never alone. I have family, friends, and people in my life who actually care about me. That empty, alone feeling I have is much deeper than just being filled with people. It has to be filled with something only I can fill it with. I will work on that by finding what in life makes me happy. I know my writing does and so does music. So my goal is not only to not let people who suck the soul out of others overstay in my life but to work on my writing and my hobbies.
My last goal is to maintain my body healthy. Being a college student can be overwhelming. It can make you feel out of control and busy. I learned that I could never be too busy to feed my body the beneficial nutrients and exercise it so I can be healthy mentally and physically.
These are just a few of my goals. I still have a major goal of finishing a book I am writing and publishing it. I know I can achieve it and I want you guys to know, so can you!
Thank you for reading my work. May the new year enter beautifully and drama free.
I haven’t written on my blog for the past two days. I’ve just been extremely tired. I would come home and immediately fall asleep. At one point I asked myself, “is this life? No energy, no fun, just work.” I was fed up because my body was so drained.
I went to the doctors and got some blood work done to make sure my health is good. I get those back in a week.
This Halloween I didn’t get to do anything because I spent it at the doctor’s appointment and I had class the next day. The most I did was eat candy that my sister brought home and my dad as well.
The real fun for me was the day after Halloween. Two of my friends and I went to a restaurant called Joya.
It was amazing. Catching up with my girls and not stressing over school was a good feeling. We usually hang out on my college campus where we feel stressed and rushed. Last night we just decided to get dressed up and enjoy a nice meal.
This was my meal. I loved it. I got too full quickly so I had to take the rest home. They make their white rice and shrimp perfectly. The garlic sauce was amazing as well. It is located in Brooklyn New York.
The best part about last night is realizing how I have such great friends. Seeing them last night reminded me not to stress. I will graduate and I will get that diploma. No matter how many sleepless nights or days of my body being exhausted, I have to get through this semester.
I just have to make sure I do fun things with my friends in between 🙂.
Enjoy your day butterflies!
Remember, when stressed, come out of that routine for at least a day. Reality is and will always be more than just stress.
