“If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit” — Basky
There’s been some radio silence on here, for good reason though. I have been super busy with school, work, and acting as President/founder of a new student org– all of which have been really stressful. So as you can imagine the blog sort of fell behind. I mean, we did have a little break that I ended up using for some light studying and sleep. I kind of felt bad that I wasn’t more productive, but that was the only break that we’ll be getting until Thanksgiving (gotta sleep in while you can). To add on to all of this, my routine has been screwed big time! I’ve been dragging myself out of bed everyday, starting my weekends later than usual, and basically living by the “If tomorrow’s not the due day, then today isn’t the do day” rule. (You all have my good friend, Regina, to thank for that quote). I’ve been trying to remind myself that now’s not the time to start slipping, but it’s been really hard. Between going to classes and working on the other side of town, I’m exhausted by the time I try to sit down and do my work. Maybe I should try to take an hour each day to destress? I don’t know, but again, it’s been pretty difficult. Finding the balance of not being too hard on myself and self-discipline is something that I need to work on because the line between the two has clearly been blurred on this end.
Song of the week:
It’s a tie between “Too Much” by Drake and “How Deep is Your Love?” by PJ Morton
Something I’m grateful for:
Not a “thing”, but my roommate. We’ve both been having a hard week, so just us being there for each other has been great. We also made it to the gym lol. Hopefully, we can make a routine out of this.
Something I’m looking forward to:
I look forward to these classes being over, that’s it. I’m just ready to truly be able to take a break. #imtide Okay, maybe that isn’t it. My girls and I are headed to DC this weekend to tour the National Museum of African American History and Culture aka the “new black history museum”.
