HAPPY WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH!
The funny/pretty ladies of emotistyle put together this hilariously-wonderful-vaginawesome-remix-mashup video! WATCH IT.
SO tonight we explore the realm of stress. And I mean real stress. Not the stress of having to pick out the perfect outfit, or looking nice. I mean the real kind of stress from which you do not sleep as well and feel totally overwhelmed from.
My past two weeks have been like this. As we have hit the mid-semester stride, it is becoming evident that we only have like 2 months left in this semester. AND THAT IS SCARY. It means that every test and little grade heavily impacts my grade because there are a limited number of grades left to get. Every lecture is one closer to the final exam and Christmas break. There is so much work to get done and not enough that has been completed. Every deadline happened like yesterday and tomorrow has a to do list that takes more than the 24 hours available in a day. So you could say that I know this stress very well.
TO add to all of it, I meet with my adviser on monday to plan out my schedule for next semester. I only have 3 more semesters to schedule before I graduate. HOW SCARY!!!!! I can barely think about what I am going to do this weekend, rather than what I am going to do after graduation. Not to mention that I have to figure out what medical schools I am going to apply to, which adds to the future stress as well. Sometime I feel too grown up and I want to go back to freshman year, where there were no cares or stresses. Then I knew that these stresses existed but they were not real at that time. Now they are more than real. What if I can not get into medical school, and then have a pre-med degree, and what can you really do with that? I don’t want to get stuck working at the grocery store for the rest of my life. I wish that I could just go and skip these middle steps and go right to the dream job phase.
I think that I am in need of a break. This weekend my academic fraternity has a social and I am really looking forward to it. I get to hang out with my friends and people that understand the stress that I am under because they are going through the same thing. Having people that are going through this as well helps me so much because I am a venter. And so are my friends. The other day two of my friends called ME just to vent. They thought that I would best understand what they were going through, and wanted MY opinion and outtake on things. I LOVED THIS. Occasionally I forget that there are others here that need me as much as I need them. I LOVE to feel needed and heard, and them calling me made my day. More than anything it reminds me that I have the BEST friends in the world, and it reassures me that I chose right when choosing friends.
This may not be everything that I am stressing about, but it is more than enough for tonight.
Thanks for listening;
So I really did not want to blog tonight, but I do it for you.
What I really want to talk about tonight is relationships. I’m going to give you the background of one of my friends relationships because she asked me for advice today and I did not know what tell her. I want to be helpful and tell her everything is right, but something just sounds off. So here are the details…
SO these two people have been chatting for at least 2 hours twice a week for about 2 months. They are getting along and have lots of things in common. Over break my friend went home to hang out with her new guy. As from what I’ve heard, they hung out every day and had lots of cute mini dates. The biggest letdown was that he never made a move on her. He never tried to hold her hand, or even put his arm around her when they had a movie date. From what I hear, he seems to like her but she and I agree that something should have happened to legitimize a relationship because they are long distance.
My advice to her is that either he is too shy for her if she was hoping for something to happen. Or he really is not that into her. I feel bad telling her that he may be interested in her because she does not date often and we were all kind of pulling for this guy. She is determined to push him to the friend zone and move on, but I don’t want her to give up. He still texts her which makes it sound that he may kind of like her. But I should not be giving relationship advice. We all know my track record with relationships but she keeps looking to me for what to do, and I keep deflecting.
So I want to hear what you have to say. What should my friend do, because I bet your answers are going to be much better than anything I have to say. Also what advice do you have for her if she has to move on from this and may have to let this guy down?
Lots of love;
Life on campus is really kicking in. Classes are getting harder as we approach the before break hell weeks, and my social life could not be any fuller. I am running around every day and when I stop, I just want to go to bed. There are literally not enough hours in the day for me to get everything done.
Being it is Friday, you would think that I would have amazing, college like plans. However, I plan to disappoint you by saying that tonight I am in. I have realized that for the next few weekends until break, I have to say goodbye to my social life. My main concern is going to be school, and surviving the next two and a half weeks. No matter what I am not going out this weekend. I even wrote “DO NOT GO OUT THIS WEEKEND AND GET YOUR WORK DONE” in my planner for tomorrow. This week I am getting down to business, and getting my work done.
So life is being less fun for a while, but I like having the stress in my life. It keeps me on top of things and keeps me handing things in when they are due. For now I am all business and no fun and I can not wait for break so that I can have the fun again! Break is two and a half weeks away and I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!It is the light at the end of my mid-semester tunnel, the wind missing from beneath my wings, the bowl of ice cream after a long, hard day. No matter what it means to me it is still a few weeks away, and I have a lot of work to do between now and then. So I am getting back to work this instant!
Lots of love; Caitlin
