Keep Your Head Up…

Standard

Oh my. This Saturday is the GRE. Shit. my. pants. With the GRE quickly approaching, final projects just around the corner and the RA lifestyle continuing on… I am neck-deep in things to do. There are only so many hours in a day. I stay up til 3-4 in the morning most days and in turn sleep in til at least noon. This doesn’t leave me much time outside of meetings, classes and work to work on what concerns me most. Maybe my priorities are wrong. Maybe I just need to work on my sleep schedule. Right now, all I need to do is get through this weekend. For the past week or so, no matter what I’m working on, I just keep listening to Ben Howard. All of his music relaxes and inspires me. One song in particular, not only relaxes and inspires me, but is completely┬árelatable: “Keep your head up, keep your heart strong…” ┬áThere are so many things to do when you’re a RA and adding all the other things that life throws at you can make you feel like things are actually impossible. Things are not impossible. You just need to find some music that speaks to you and that makes you feel more relaxed while working on tasks that need to be completed.

Keep your heart strong.

October-1, Kir-0

Standard

Alright. I am admitting this: October kicked my ass.

I actually spent about a week total in the month of October feeling extremely down. Like everyone above the age of ten can probably attest to, I have way too much shit floating around in my mind.

I have classes. I have family. I have friends. I have applications. I have the GRE. I have work. I have bills. I have RA duty. I have RA programs. I have RA meetings. I have RA bulletin boards. I have RA door decs. I have no time.

All of these things in October became a little to heavy for me to carry. I didn’t get one of my programs completed in October, so now I have three in November. HA. I thought October was bad. November will be hell. No doubt.

On a brighter note, I thought I would die before making it to November… But I’m still cookin’ with gas!

No matter how difficult and gloomy the future may seem at any given moment…
