Hello fellow adventurers!
On my last day of finals(a couple of weeks ago), I was really busy with a final, packing, work, eating, and a counseling appointment.
My last final was easy. All I had to do was discuss what I had written my eight-page poetry paper on for five minutes. Did I talk for the full five minutes? No. Did I say insightful things about Anne Sexton and Allen Ginsberg? I think so. Did I pass? Yes, I did.
Packing was nerve-wrecking. I gathered so many things, including the sheets off of my bed and somehow managed to fit everything within my laundry bag, suitcase, and backpack. In the frenzy to make sure I packed all my dirty laundry I forgot to pack some of my other clean clothes. At home with me I have: four pairs of jeans, countless socks/underwear/PJs, and like five shirts and three sweaters. In reality, that is more than enough clothes to get me through each week but there’s no variety! I also packed unnecessary things such as: my Nook, snow boots(its freaking 40-65 degrees outside!), and other miscellaneous objects. Besides my snow boots, I only packed another pair of boots and slippers. NO SNEAKERS!! Stupid.
Going to work is one of my favorite things. My boss is one of the nicest people that I’ve met at my college, like when I roll out of bed with just enough time to run a brush through my hair and change before rushing out the door, she offers me a breakfast bar. Plus, I love what I do.
(I’m going to skip over discussing my eating habits. I ate. It wasn’t anything memorable.)
Before leaving for break, I had to meet with my counselor. The whole appointment basically came down to reviewing what happened over the semester and more specifically finals week, my progress etc. A lot happened during fall semester, good and bad. Two things were clear though: I lost sight of who I am at my core and I forgot my coping techniques.
I’ve been home now for a couple of weeks and I’ve only posted one article, They Say I’m Not Depressed. I guess you can say I’ve been getting back to being me. I’ve been sleeping(a lot). I’ve been on my computer(a lot). I’ve been watching TV(a lot). I’ve been eating(a lot). However, I haven’t been socializing with many people. Outside of my parents, I’ve only seen one friend so far and I barely leave my house. I’ve also really been struggling with what to write about and how to write it.
I’ve come up with multiple ideas now though, so expect to hear a lot more from me! Thank you for sticking with me. I hope your semesters and finals went well. Stay beautiful.
Until next time,
