I have noticed something lately.
I’m kinda, sorta, sometimes…. happier.
I don’t feel as dour in the mornings (but am nowhere near being a morning person), I don’t feel like smacking people for their idiocy as often (though there are some….) and I enjoy some activities I had come to view as chore-like.
I’m talking to a couple more people. I’m getting out to be marginally more social (but I do mean marginally).
I’m taking a couple of risks, applying for a position in Scouting. I don’t think I’ll get it, but I think I have shown a good attempt anyway.
I’ve been pretty good about keeping up with the vegetarianism, but slipped the other night when I had pizza. I got one with chicken. Sigh. I never claimed to be perfect and it’s still something I have to think about all the time, so I’m allowed to slip every now and then.
I’m going home this weekend to see my parents and grandparents. I told Mum I was veggie and she pretty much told me it was a dumb choice. So I probably won’t have a veg-option at dinner, but there should be potatoes, so I’ll be okay. (insert teasing emoticon here. I’ll have more than just potatoes.)
School is a bit of a struggle. I think I’m going to change my studies Again.
I know, I know. But there is So much competition for the post-grad education programs. Over 2000 grads per year in BC alone. There are not 2000 spots in the post-grad schools nor are there more than two thousand teaching positions open. My cousin’s cousin (Does that make them my first cousin once removed? My aunt’s sister’s kids.) got straight As all through his B.A and didn’t get accepted into the B. Ed. program…
I have a B-ish average, thanks to a couple flunked math-type courses in Forestry.
And I don’t know if I want to deal with high school drama for all eternity.
But this is part of growing up. Figuring things out, making the best choice and trying my best.
And I need to drink more water!
I have not dragged my un-motivated self to the gym yet, and I don’t know if I can until the new semester. I have several 1000+ word essays, plus exams and presentations and school until exams are over.
My last exam is in the afternoon of the 21st of December. Thanks, computer prof. Way to make my enjoyment of that class reach pinnacle heights. /sarcasm
There’s an update on the generality of life. Now, I’m off to see some friends downtown. Have a good Friday!
