I’m tired. Like sleepy, brain is drained tired. Do you ever wish you could have more than 24 hours in a day to do more? Yeah, I’m getting that feeling now.
I think I’ve spent more time pondering on having more time in a day than I ever have in my lifetime. We can call this a baby rant or me just sharing my thoughts and feelings.
As I mentioned in my last blog, I recently started a new class in school and with six (6) weeks left in the semester, graduation couldn’t come any faster! My mind and body are having a hard time adjusting to my new schedule. I’m not used to having classes in the middle of the week plus a Saturday course.
It’s just a little hump but I think I’ll get used to it by next week. Just a fresh reminder to everyone, it’s okay to feel tired. It’s okay to take a step back and replenish yourself.
Walking into yesterday’s class, I notice on the board, my professor wrote “What problems did you have to overcome today to get here?” Now, naturally I’m looking around at all my classmates like “Is this a real question we’re going to answer?” Mind you, this class is Torts course; civil and criminal litigation.
A lot of my classmates gave answers such as getting through work, driving in traffic, taking care of errands, etc. We all have problems that need solving on a day to day basis.
My professor followed up and said, “All valid answers but when it comes to taking exams… you guys all have anxiety. It’s just a piece of paper. If you keep telling yourself you can’t take this test or you won’t pass it, chances are you won’t do well and you won’t pass it. It’s just a piece of paper.”
And right now… That’s kind of how I’m feeling. It’s just another class. It’s just another challenge to add to my daily routine. Adding another course, juggling and prioritizing my schedule is just another challenge I will have to overcome. As tired as I am, I will not let this defeat me.
I’ve gone through much more stress in my past but I’m still here right? I’m still standing, I’m still getting through the day and keeping my focus on the end result.
Have you ever felt tired from working full time, being in school, trying to fit in a gym sesh, eating right, taking care of loved ones including parents and children, and having life throw the unexpected at you?
Of course you have! But you overcame it, right? Being tired is absolutely acceptable when dealing with various factors in your life but don’t ever stop pushing through. We all can get through it.
Treat yourself to the little things in life to bring yourself back up. You will be okay (I just feel like writing to myself, :P).
Anyways, thank you for taking a moment to read my brief rant. And oh yes, have an amazing motherfucking HUMP DAY!
Until the next post,
I’m going to drink more caffeine,
With support and support,
