I’ve gotta admit it. This year is kind of killing me. And it’s not even that I have too much homework, or too much extracurricular involvement, or anything like that.
Nah, I am stressed because I can’t seem to DO anything. I can’t concentrate. I can’t bring myself to do homework. I can’t resist that cookie or the ice cream at Kennedy Commons. I can’t get enough sleep. I can’t remember to call my parents when I tell them I will. I can’t figure out when or where my classes/meetings are half the time. I can’t yank myself away from mindless & distracting websites when i should be doing other things. I can’t drag my butt to the RPAC or even on a short run. I can’t keep things on a consistent good note with my boyfriend lately. I can’t hang out with friends or make plans. I can’t read material for my classes. Heck, I couldn’t even finish unpacking my college stuff until this weekend. And I’ve been here for nearly 9 weeks.
Not sure what this slump is that I’m in =/
All I know is, whatever it is, it is severely stressing me out. It’s almost as if there is some kind of physical barrier preventing me from doing all of the things I want to. Except that…there isn’t. It’s totally mental, or psychological, or…something.
We’re almost to the halfway point in the semester! That should be great news. For now, it’s more just a reminder to myself that I have been really wasting away this year so far – and that I’m getting sick of it. I need a serious dose of motivation. And a side of energy would be nice. What do you do when you’re feeling totally unmotivated or un-encouraged?
Song of the Day: Encourage Yourself by Donald Lawrence & the Tri-City Singers
Why: We sang this song in Gospel Choir last year, and it just seems to lift my spirits a little bit and remind me that I should be encouraged :)
