Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I cannot even afford to hit the snooze button because summer is flying by and if I spend too much time in dreamland, I will miss the entire summer. That sentence doesn’t make a lot of sense, but I have to be honest with you. In most of my posts, I don’t spend a lot of time correcting my grammar because I write it as I say it so I apologize if it doesn’t always make sense :).
Last week was evaluation week and I took the week to relax and recover from spring quarter. I am thrilled because I earned all of my credits. There was a point where I was worried that I would lose credits because I missed classes when I was sick, but thankfully my professors were supportive and were willing to work with me. And now it feels so great to be done!
I was also a little stressed about having to find a job after being out of the workforce for some time. That was quickly solved because I got a job were I can get paid well for working from home! I just need to make sure that I remember to get up and move around. Last Saturday, I sat at my desk for 6 straight hours working on the computer and then my neck hurt the next day. It is still way better than having to go in for a job.
I also decided last week that I am going to become a Full-Stack-Developer so that I can continue to work from home. I just know that it will open up a world of opportunities for me no matter what I chose to do.
Overall, I feel so positive and happy because summer is here and I can focus on bettering myself. My friend Grace and I started swimming at the college which felt wonderful, but I cannot swim very long due to my injury. Sadly, the rec center is closed for a week due to maintenance, but that’s okay.
Last week I wanted to give myself the freedom to do whatever I wanted, but I noticed that I was still in the habit of stressing about school and feeling like I should be doing something. It is a habit I want to break because that kind of stress just zaps the energy out of me.
On Sunday, it took all day (due to my procrastination) but I finally got my room and closet cleaned. I think even after getting rid of my possessions, I still have more than I know what to do with. I decided on Sunday night that I wanted to work on being more productive with my time.
Yesterday I wrote out some daily goals and by the end of the day I accomplished nearly every one. I had to tug myself along because I didn’t want to do some things that needed to be done, like I was dreading going to the tire store. My tires have been giving me issues since October and it has been SO stressful because I just bought new tires in August. We brought my car to the shop back then and they said that nothing was wrong, but clearly something was wrong. I had a nail stuck in my tire. I was just going to replace the one because the repair man said that I could pull it off and it would save me a lot of money.
My amazing boyfriend called in a payment and bought me an entire set of new tires!!! I can’t believe it! How did I ever get so blessed?!?!
I discovered that I get a lot more done when I go out with a plan and try and stick with my plan and to me that is the ultimate freedom. To accomplish what you set out to do.
I also discovered that I need to fix my sleep schedule because it has been crazo. I have been awake until 3 in the morning for no real apparent reason… Well, maybe it’s because my leg still hurts at night. I still want to work on fixing my sleep and waking schedule because I know that it will help with my health and productivity.
