Happy Thoughts

In honour of Thanksgiving coming next week and me starting off my week of classes in a really positive mood, I thought I would devote this entry to all things in my life that I’m grateful for and feeling happy about.

  • I got an A on both my Psychology and College Algebra exams last Friday! I’m really proud of all the hard work and studying I put into preparing for them. This entire semester I had been struggling to get good scores in those classes and hadn’t gotten above a C in either. But now I bypassed getting B’s and got A’s! I’m so happy about it and definitely plan on continuing to work diligently to keep those scores in the A range. These are my last gen-ed courses to take, and I won’t let them bring down my cumulative GPA when I’m almost finished!
  • I’m slimming down and feeling much healthier than back in September! I can tell in the way my clothes fit and my body is looking and behaving that I am becoming more in tune with my body. In the recent past, I have been struggling with my mind, body, and spirit functioning at prime condition and cohesively with one another. Ever since I’ve come back from my Fall Break and have taken the time to care about my health, I’ve noticed a positive difference. And I’m not stopping there! I’m continuing on amping up my activity and positive thoughts, and I know that with happy thoughts come happy results!
  • I’m taking studying, practicing, projects, and rehearsing in little chunks so as to alleviate my stress. It’s actually working. If I get bored or my brain starts to fry on one subject, I switch tasks and move on to something else. I think that’s the best way for me to go about my tasks from now on. Cramming for hours and intense focus on one thing at a time no longer work for me. And that’s okay.
  • My friends, family, professors, and basically everyone in my life are so supportive and kind and thoughtful and generous! I really appreciate each and every one of them!
  • My creative sparks and motivations for anything and everything I enjoy are returning! It’s a great thing, being inspired!
  • I’m getting involved in not only reading books for my Senior Thesis but also for pleasure. Currently on my nightstand/dresser are Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin and a book about finding Prince Charming.
  • I’ll be going up to Iowa to be with family for Thanksgiving, which I’m really looking forward too. Plus, my friend J will be up there, and it’ll be a great opportunity to spend time together again!
  • I’m officially an aunt (albeit not in the blood-related sense)!!! One of my closest friends from high school just had a beautiful baby daughter last Tuesday! I’m so excited to meet her, hold her, and shower my love and attentions upon her! What a great way to soothe my biological alarm clock and maternal instincts kicking in. I know now is most certainly not the time to have a baby, so I will be able to satisfy myself with S and soon to be coming H in December! Babies, babies, babies, everywhere!
  • My financial issues have been worked out, thank goodness. So now I’ll be extra careful about my spending habits. That’s important, though. I really need to become vigilant and responsible about my expenses because six months from now I’ll be thrust into the real world of working to pay back these wonderful college loans (note my sarcasm).
  • I’m still in love with Florence + The Machine’s new album! I can see myself being as innovative and creative with some of my music and lyrics I’ll write someday!
  • My second chance at a real relationship will be one month old as of this Thursday. It’s hard to believe such a short time has passed in relation to everything we’ve gone through together. It’s fast yet slow. I’m so grateful for his presence in my life! In the short time we’ve known each other, he has removed every doubt or fear that a guy would have a hard time reaching the bar I’ve set since my first relationship. And B has not only reached that bar, he has flown over it in ways I thought were unfathomable! I could go on and on about him, but I’ll let you read my previous post and poem, “Time” that I wrote yesterday. My feelings for him can’t really be described, so I’ll let my poetry speak for itself. It’s wonderful, and I look forward to what the future holds for the two of us.
Well, I do believe it’s time for me to get to reading and homework now.
Enjoy the rest of your evening!
❤ Me
