WELL, the first week of winter semester is over- 12 more weeks (and finals!) to go- not that I’m counting down or anything. The truth is, I love this part of term the most. I know I have all this work left to do, but I have all the potential in the world to be kick ass and do amazingly well. I like that I get to start over every 13 weeks and improve on whatever I didn’t do so great on last time around. I love my renewed sense of motivation, despite being sad that holiday break is over.
Honestly, the end of last semester seriously didn’t go so well. I blame being sick… It ruined my motivation, my willpower to get any work done, and in the end my ability to go to my finals in a state that allowed me to succeed. The work I put in throughout the 13 weeks kind of went down the drain in the last two- even after I got back A grade papers just before final exams.
But a new year, a new semester, a fresh start! I’m trying to organize my work better, stay more on top of my homework (fingers crossed on that one) and find more enjoyment in my courses so that I procrastinate my work less. Plus, CASA Cares will be hosting the 10th annual Fashion Show in support of the Montreal Children’s Hospital in March- I’m SO excited to make this event the biggest it has ever been, and just to see our whole team come together and raise a TON of money for one crazy awesome charity.
I have a lot to look forward to right here at home (my mind likes to wander to distant countries more often these days, it’s been too long since I’ve been on a plane!) and I’m thankful for that. There isn’t a whole lot happening every day, but I’m finding more time to fall back in love with reading, to listen to music louder, to sleep better, and to work on myself a little bit.
And that’s about all that’s going on over here. I’ve been lacking blogging inspiration, but where my writing is lacking, my reading has picked up (finally!). As long as I’m not doing one, I hope to be doing the other… A subconscious goal I’ve picked up so far this year is to constantly find time for the things I love, and I truly hope that doesn’t change as the semester wears on.
Other than that, this weekend I plan on enjoying some wonderful time with family (my nephew will be sleeping over Friday AND Saturday night), friends (belated Christmas dinner/gifts with some girlfriends) & maybe do a little bit of homework. There still isn’t a whole lot of stress, but I’d love to keep it like that for as long as possible!
Hope you all have a great weekend
