I’ve realized that I honestly do not question my emotions. When I’m happy, why not just relish it? When I’m sad, I kind of enjoy it as well… But, I’ve come to also discover that I am most judgmental and mean-spirited when I am exhausted, and I begin to dwell on things that do not occur to me when I am awake and focused. So, I think I have to be careful not to ground my convictions on emotions but to draw on them when the emotions fade, and they often do… Actually, I think the best remedy for a bad day is to sleep because after a good night’s rest, things look much better!
Week 4: End of Winter Break…
Well, so far my response to people who have asked me about my break is that it’s been quiet, which is true. I didn’t really do much… my only travel experience is driving down to New Jersey to visit the 90 guys and Steph, and I also got to hang out with high school friends once or twice and see Young Park. For the rest of the break, my time was split amongst video gaming, ROFL, and chores/office stuff. Sadly, my only regret is that I didn’t finish a book! This surprised me because I started a couple this break, but I just couldn’t finish any… I mean, last year’s book is exactly what got me started on tumblr, and I hoped for something “special” like that. But, you know, I’ve got my new resolution to invest in people first! That’s going to be a difficult but fun challenge to uptake this year, and I’m looking forward to the struggles that will help me see better what that statement means. I have been more conscious about sleeping though not extremely satisfied with my progress :P The true test will be during school, and I’ll try my best in sleeping by 2AM! Or at least, getting a decent amount of sleep each night. All in all, I guess nothing “big” impacted my life, but perhaps this is what I need to prepare me for my last semester and for the seemingly mundane things in life. So far, I’ve come to enjoy those things because I manage to find something intriguing and worthwhile in those daily acts. :) I can’t wait for this semester to begin!
