Stressed To The Max!

It's midterms this week and I am struggling to keep up with all of the studying and assignments to that need to be done. Yesterday I was coping just fine with the endless amounts of homework, but today it's all starting to catch up with me. After all the nice weather we've been having (and by nice I mean just warm enough for the snow to start melting) I was very disappointed to see that it was practically a blizzard outside when I woke up. Trudging all the way across campus through snowdrifts while the snow pelts you in the face at what feels like a million miles per hour is not a good way to start off an early morning. Needless to say, I wore the wrong shoes and was slipping and sliding on all of the ice patches hidden under the snow, causing me to twist my ankle. It is now extremely swollen. My classes have been really stressful and I hate it when I don't understand the material we're learning, especially when I'm just about to be tested on it. I'm not a crier, I'll admit that I shed the occasional tear during emotional movies or t.v. shows, but when it comes to my personal life, I hardly ever cry. My mom thinks it's strange, and I tell her she should be happy that I have nothing to cry about. That being said, this entire morning I just felt like I was going to burst into tears at any moment. However, being a pretty positive person, I've decided to try to focus on the good things I have. I know I shouldn't really even be complaining since I know there are many people that struggle with so many other things. Basically I'm writing this post for myself. I think it will be good for me to organize the positives.

1. I am extremely lucky to be getting an education.

2. Easter is almost here. Meaning spring, sunshine, pastels, candy, and family!
3. Good friends that lift my spirits when I'm down.
4. Painting my nails a bright pastel blue has definitely helped improve my mood. Plus, it's lasted a few days without chipping. WIN!

5. Midterms mean that the semester is half over.
6. Spring break is just around the corner! So excited for a week at home with minimal amounts of school work.
7. It was definitely a good idea to order myself a "birthday" cake from the dining center.

Composing this list has actually made me feel better, so now it's time to put my game face on and get down to business! 

Keep Smiling, 



Ordering a cake was definitely a good idea! I would so love to eat that right now. I'm off chocolate for Lent and it's depressing the life out of me! :( x


I always think about giving up chocolate for lent, but I don't know if I could survive! Good for you for actually trying! :D
