Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I watched another week come and go and just like that; we are more than halfway through April! Where did the time go?! Yesterday I was going to sum up week 15, but today I decided that I will not only talk about last week. I am going to get ahead for next week too! This is the 1st time in the history of my projects that I have written my weekly post early.
I felt very good overall about last week! I continued my break-up with coffee, stuck with teas, and did not feel exhausted! I also attended class every day and made myself a breakfast of oatmeal, eggs, and fresh fruit. Additionally, I ate healthier meals and started exercising at home.
I created a to-do-list for myself, but was a little stuck and only completed the work that was outstanding. I also had a doctor’s appointment for my cough and she prescribed a maintenance inhaler and a nasal spray. I reluctantly picked it up because I do not like to take medicine. I am currently looking into more natural remedies and preventative measures that I can take. Overall, going to the clinic was not a very comfortable experience for me. I prefer to stay healthy.
I had a wonderful ballet class on Saturday, but had a strange incident in our household that evening that shook me up a little. Also, I woke up with an eye irritation on saturday that I hoped would go away with time.
On Sunday morning I brought my roommate a birthday coffee and made her cupcakes. It was fun. I can’t remember the last time that I made cupcakes!!! I know that it wasn’t the healthiest option, but since it was Easter I figured it was an additional reason to get festive.
This week has honestly been so strange and I have been feeling very anxious and uneasy. I had some flashbacks from my past. I guess it is just a form of PTSD that has come back to haunt me a little. I was also disproportionately worried about my cat. I noticed that she slept all day and seemed lethargic. I got her some food and I may still take her to the vet, but I think that I just overreacted. She seems to be fine now. I was so worried and consumed by my concern, but I think it might of been another instance of me needing something to worry about.
My nutrition has been garbage this week and I missed some classes at school due to appointments. I feel behind in Chemistry and am overwhelmed. Last night I talked with a consulting nurse about my eye and today I have an eye exam. They recommended that I stay home from school just in case it is contagious. This week I missed a lab, a chem lecture, and an important dance workshop in which we got our final group project assignment and formed groups. I feel like garbage for missing it. Thankfully, I made good friends in the last quarter and they wanted me to be in their group.
Do what you must and do it with ALL your heart.
Learn a new language and/or expand on what you have learned so far.
Train a little harder.
Wake up a little earlier for an early start.
My current goal is to work on my state of mind. That no matter how crazy my life or world is. Even if I am surrounded by tragedy I want to learn how to be okay.
The next time that I feel stressed of overwhelmed I will remind myself:
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”
I hope you are all enjoying your week!!!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
