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 relatable: “Keep your head up, keep your heart strong…” There 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.
