Hello world. Happy Monday. You know how the past couple of weeks I've been in a complete funk? Well I think I'm out of it. At least for now, I'm feeling much better I had a great weekend and I'm feeling a little less overwhelmed by my circumstance and life is good.
As you most likely know, for the past few weeks I have been focusing on academic achievement. As it's about half way through the month I figured it's time to check in.
It's going great. Seriously. It's a miracle...I have basically spent every minute of the past two weeks working on homework, studying, and being completely immersed in school and it is paying off like you would not believe. I wrote a six page paper like it was nothing. It was like I couldn't stop the my brain from creating sentences. I had done that much research on the topic and I was so ready.
Here is a little PSA for everyone out there who is struggling like I was: Take a deep breath and get to work. It's gonna be okay.
-I got a 26/30 on my Philosophy test...If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I have a serious dislike for philosophy. It's a critical thinking course and I want to critically injure my professor every week. So getting a 26/30 is, again, a miracle.
-I'm two chapters ahead in one of my books
-I finished this coming Thursday's homework last Tuesday.
-I'm on top of all my assignments for all my classes and I officially do not feel overwhelmed by the amount of work and reading I have.
I hoping that my midterm grades look amazing and I will tear up with joy when I look at them. I have never worked so hard for my grades in my life and I'm so happy that I did. When I started working on these monthly goals I didn't know it would work so well but it's really working. It has shown me exactly what I'm capable of in a lot of different areas. It has shown me that I can be a great blogger, I can be frugal (okay so I sort of have to be frugal...) and that I can really do well in school and work hard. It has been a tough month so far if I'm being completely honest but it's worth it and I know that. :)
How are your new years resolutions going? Did you make goals for this month? Are you sticking to em?
