” I can see clearly now, the rain is gone!”

As I wrap up my finals for my first semester of grad school (wowza), I’ve realized a few a things. This time last week, I was under heaps and heaps of pressure. I cried, I stressed myself out and I was a complete mess. Looking back I wonder if all of that shit was worth it? I am capable, competent and confident in my ability so why did I worry?

Lesson #1 Everything seems impossible until you finish it. I seriously hit a point ( a few times actually) where I thought I should just give up and quit. The deadlines, the projects, the papers were overwhelming me and I honestly felt suffocated. I was hitting some new lows including a series of carb overloading and I SWEAR I found a grey hair (!!!). Enough was enough. I managed my time and finished everything (Yass) and reflecting on the semester, it should have been a breeze. Once you are faced with a difficult task, just shutup and do it. Its the worry and procrastination that stresses you out.

Tomorrow is the last day of exams, and I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Hoo-rah! Vacation time has arrived, and all will be right in the world. Feeling pretty proud of myself right now. Must have a restorative cup of green tea to celebrate.

Check you next time with fab and obnoxious vacation photos. #sorrynotsorry
