On Life, Changes, and Motivation

13 Apr

I feel like blogging the night away.

In all seriousness, I haven’t posted anything in a long time. I haven’t even kept up to date with my Friday’s Five, something I thought I’d always have time to do. But it was getting a bit sad, really. My answers would always be the same, even if I posted:

1. Mood in a word: tired.

2. Book you’re reading: none, but I should be reading my textbooks.

3. Looking forward to this weekend: sleep.

4. Dreading the most: classes on Monday.

5. Word of the week: sleeeeeeeep. Follow the emphasis.

This second semester has been quite different from last. My courses have become more reading intensive, I started working in January, and I’ve lost my drive to do well. The drive has been a real stab; not knowing why you’re studying what you’re studying can really take the sweetness out of learning. I felt a little bit more alive when I walked into a bookstore today and actually bought two books for my younger siblings. There were so many books around me, and for the first time in four months I actually wanted to read them. I’m feeling really excited to read/reread some great books after exams!

On a sidenote, the Lizzie Bennet Diaries finished a little while ago, and that was a pretty sweet conclusion to it all. I feel like a little bit of ‘me’ is back: I am playing sudoku and kakuro again, I am contemplating reading a book while studying (rebel), and I am posting again! I can’t wait until Friday comes and I do a real Friday’s Five.

See you in a bit! And for all of those with finals in the next few weeks: sleep well and good luck!

      I know what you mean! I tried to watch a few shows, read a book, hit the gym etc. But it just doesn’t feel the same when you’re behind in all of your school work 😦
