If I try to work hard, I burn out quickly. If I don't work hard, I'll only fail. If I I try to work hard, I always fall short. If I don't work hard, I'll only fail. I'm so exhausted.
I spent four years with the same teacher, three of them in a club he was in charge of, one of them as vice president of said club. In those four years of high school, I had countless conversations with my German teacher, countless experiences, and countless lessons. Countless, but I'll try recalling some. One … Continue reading The Professor
I wouldn't say my life is a mess necessarily, but I would say that there are quite a few complicated aspects of it swimming around my head on a daily basis. Between finishing up finals, packing up my room, getting ready to travel for three months, trying to better my health, and personal things going … Continue reading What to do, What to do…
Pretty soon I'm going to have to title these something else, because my exchange is certainly coming to a close. To just jump in and address the title, I am starting to stress out quite a bit. It's my own fault, really. Well, it's a combination of having a lot going on and procrastinating proactive … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Starting to Stress
Note: I do tend to have a weekly mental breakdown that follows almost this exact train of thought every time, only it usually happens at night. Today it happened while I walked to class, and I decided to journal it down. I'm not sure if it'll help you in any way or satisfy any curiosity … Continue reading Inside My Weekly Mental Breakdown
So, that last post was a bit of a downer, eh? (there's that time spent in Canada showing through). Yeah, I wrote it and fell into a deep spiral of self hate that I had to sleep off. I hardly ate that day, but then I got so weak that I had to get McDonald's … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I Want to Get Better
I think I'm actually starting this one by asking myself "what do I need to tell myself today?" I think I probably mostly need to tell myself to get out of bed, seeing as it's almost 6pm and all I've done is scroll through Tumblr and eat breakfast. I'd like to claim this happened maximum … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I Write Myself a To-Do List
Today's a new day and a new week. Some would say it's the hardest day of the week for that very reason, that now we have to go back to school and work after relaxing all Sunday. While I have done more than my fair share of groaning on a Monday, today I feel energized … Continue reading A bit of Monday Motivation
I'm going to preface this for any readers that, as I often enjoy using this blog as a diary of sorts, I will now continue to do so in letters to myself entitled "Letters from Exchange" (I suppose that title will have to change when I'm no longer on exchange, but I can't be bothered … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The First One
The title seems a tad self serving, doesn't it? It's not meant to be. It was intended to be "the year of you", but I realized this was a more internalized blog post than a self-help one. Just know that this is the year of you, whenever you're reading this. And you an do anything. I want you to know that I'm trying...
