What I learned in college
I think we all need a pep talk.
The world needs you to stop being boring.
Boring is EASY, everybody can be boring.
But you are gooder than that.
Life is not a game people!
Life isn’t a cereal either. Well, it is a cereal.
And if life is a game, aren’t we all on the same team?
I mean really, right?
I’m on your team, so be on my team.
This is life people! You got air coming through your nose!
You got a heart beat! That means it’s time to do somethin!
A Poem….”Two roads diverged in the woods, and I took the road less traveled.
AND IT HURT MAN!” Really bad….
ROCKS! THORNS! AND GLASS!
Not cool Robert Frost.
But what if there really were two paths.
I wanna be on the one that leads to AWESOME!
It’s like that one dude Journey said, “Don’t stop believing….unless your dream is stupid.” Then you should get a better dream.
I think that’s how it goes.
Get a better dream and keep going people! Keep going, Keep going, and Keep going.
What if Michael Jordan had quit? Well….he did quit. No he retired. Yeah, he retired.
But before that in High School. What if he had quit when he didn’t make the team?
He would have never made Space Jam. And I love Space Jam.
What will be your Space Jam? What will you create that will make the world awesome?
Nothin if you keep sittin there!
That’s why I am talking to you today!
This is YOUR time. This is My time. This is OUR time.
We can make everyday better for each other. If we’re all on the same team…let’s start acting like it!
We got work to do.
We can cry about it, or we can dance about it!
We were made to be awesome!
Let’s get out there!
I don’t know everything, I’m just a kid. but I do know this.
It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance!
So get to it!
You just been pep talked!
Create something that will make the world awesome!
So back in February, hard to believe that today is May 1st, I volunteered to help one of my favorite professors with research on crayfish.
I was very excited until i realized how much work that it would entail. Once this was discovered my true slacker self reared its big ugly head out. Fast forward to spring break, my professor told me that i had to find 100 articles and report back to him after spring break.
Now i can’t actually remember if i did talk to him or not right after spring break but today i had a word with him today. I explained to him that i hadn’t done what I was suppose to do and was disappointed in myself for it. Me then told me that I had to figure out if this is what i really wanted to do or if i should just “cut my losses” and just let this opportunity go. I feel if i let this go i would be less stressed out but this also means that I wouldn’t get experience the field which i so desperately need (just to know what its like and for my resume) and my summer would just consist of me getting up everyday and going to work (boring!) So i must put my anxiety aside and step up to the plate with new motivation.
My anxiety about the world has stopped me from doing what i want to do. I am too afraid that i’ll go broke so i don’t live it up like i used to. I miss drinking and hanging out with my friends. I am so afraid of what people will think of me that I don’t really have much of a social life. I know this has taken a toll on me and my boyfriend. I can see how much he misses the old me when i wasn’t so stressed out about money and making sure we have enough to live. I am so proud of him for looking for a summer job, which i know he will land one soon.The bottom line is that my anxiety is keeping me from actually living. I AM 21 FUCKING YEARS OLD, i need to go out and act like a normal person before its too late to live like i want to. I need this research opportunity.
I can’t let it go. There may be some long days where i don’t want to do anything, there could be another day where i want to do everything! I just have to push through it knowing that this would benefit me and everyone involved (including the little crayfishes). I HAVE TO DO IT.
I WANT TO DO IT! God give me strength to do this because it will be a great thing for everyone.
Good thoughts, prayers, and messages of motivation would greatly help me through getting done with this bullshit.
Hi you. Yes, you. Hello, my dear. I donât know you, or at least I donât know everything about you. I donât know your middle name, your favorite color, your biggest fear, or the name of the street y…
Wow. thats all i have to say about this. I haven’t had the chance to read it all the way but i plan to soon after i am done studying for the day..so maybe tomorrow. but it looks good and inspirational!
I don’t really share this with very many people but…
I wish I wasn’t such a jealous and hateful person.
I try not to expose these kinds of feelings to anyone but sometimes they just get so built up that i want to throw a tantrum that a 3-year-old would have.
Searching for peace…soon hopefully
Man Candy Monday. :)
