Winterim 2

Yesterday, after only three hours of sleep I had a full eighteen hour day that consisted of only desiring sleep. I stared a few time at my homework and decided it was the wrong day for studying.  Which then resulted in. Full ten hour study session today. I was up by seven and writing my first paper by 7:10. When I finished at 9 I was able to shower and prepare myself to audition for an internship at 10:30. 


The interview went off without a hitch. I get to work with the population I’m going to graduate school to help. I’m nurvous and extatic all the same time. I hope it’s only reassuring me that I’m doing what I ought through school. 

I had celebratory coffee and groceries picked up by noon. 

I started my exam by 12:30 and finished it confidently by 2pm. There were at least three repeated questions. I don’t understand why teachers expect higher quality work then they put in. I honestly feel like I have had a never ending to do list today. But every second of it is cherished. 

I dove right into the 70 minute video and second essay. It was such a struggle to write. If a paper is hard I feel the better. I feel like it pushes to find more conclusions do the same problem. I want to think. I want to struggle. 


Now, I relax. I have a weekend in front of me but I consider that more time to get ahead on reading. 


Positivity Friday: 9 (Late)

I’ve been over loaded with things of late that I have no idea why my head is still on. Last weekend I was on vacation and then started up on classes last Wednesday. So without further ado I’m going to give you twice the gratitude.

The world is so much bigger than your brain, stop living inside your head. *and original*

What I like about this quote is that sometimes I don’t remember that I have to get out of my books and actually talk to people. I’m much more comfortable studying alone and watching people from a far. It’s one of my favorite things about my partner. We both aren’t very good at the whole “people” thing but what we are good at is pushing each other to try and be good at the “people” thing.

Gratitude Journal:

  1.  Having a wonderful walk with my niece.
  2. Spending time with my beautiful Godson.
  3. Spending time at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
  4. Spending lots of time with my Partner.
  6. Math tutoring with my dad going well. (Which has never gone well before.)

“Believe you can & you’re halfway there.” – T.Roosevelt

The amazing thing about my life is my depression used to make me immobile. It used to incapacitate my ambition. It killed me body and soul. But the best part of my life now is that I no long feel that way when I’m depressed. The best thing now is thatI believe I can do better, I believe I’m going to be successful, and my ambition and faith keeps me going.

Gratitude Journal:

  1. A great new haircut that helps me feel lighter.
  2. A wonderful week of watching the new Batman Trilogy.
  3. Quality times with my mother!

Nothing this week that seems too important to other people but are very healthy positive vibes for me.

Don’t Make Change Too Complicated, Just Begin!

When life hit me harder then ever before I didn’t even stumble when change came knocking my way. If I didn’t take hold of the beautiful things that came my way I would be absolutely miserable right now. I would not be living. I’d still be chained down and oppressed.

Gratitude Journal:

1. Doing well on my first exam for my 2nd Summer Semester Class.

2. Spending a relaxing morning with my Partner.

3. Not having to wear my heart monitor anymore.

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.” – Albert Einstein

This week my professor also said something similar, “goal-setting=success.”  So this week I’m very motivated by setting and reevaluating my goals. I will be a successful and achieve when even everyone doubts me.


1. Laughing at school.

2. A really great dinner with my partner and two friends.

3. Passing my summer course.
