The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. – William James
Be with those who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you.
I have just been feeling off lately, not quite like myself. I don’t know why. It could be the stress of midterms (most likely); it could be the lack of quality time I get to spend with T (frustrated is an understatement); or it could just be my normal moodiness time. Who knows. But it’s annoying. And I can’t seem to kick myself out of this funk.
Once these midterms are over this week, I have the Virginia Student Conclave (I think that’s what it’s called..). We have no class Friday because of it; a bunch of my classmates and I are heading to Richmond Thursday night and staying at the hotel where the conference is so that we can get up early and attend without the 2 hour commute at 6AM Friday. I was hoping to make it back in time to get to T’s football game – it’s Homecoming so I was looking forward to attending that. Unfortunately, because I’m not driving down, I would have to rely on someone else wanting to come back earlier, and I don’t think anyone wants to do that :(. I would drive myself, but I am putting so many miles on my car daily that I was looking forward to not having to drive.
Also, one of my good friends from Salisbury is running in the Baltimore Marathon next weekend, so we are having a mini reunion at our friend’s place who lives in Baltimore. I’m so, so excited to see all of them and I think it will be a good stress release after this busy week. It also is my fall break, which means I don’t have to be back at school until the following Wednesday. It will be much needed, believe me. I’m hoping I can figure something out to see T since Friday isn’t looking good right now and I’ll be in Baltimore Saturday and most of Sunday probably. Ugh. Frustrating.
But. I need to go study some more. Peripheral written and practical tomorrow. Spinal written and practical Thursday. I just gotta remember sometimes…
