Serenity Prayer.

God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things that I can;
And the wisdom to know the difference.

For the past 2-3 days, I’ve been in a bit of a somber mood. The semester’s starting to wind down, my workload is increasing, sleep hours are becoming shorter and overall, I feel a bit overwhelmed. These next few weeks will be a serious exercise of my ability to adhere to the Serenity Prayer.

Earlier today, I became so frustrated as I looked at the work in front of me that my right eye began to twitch. At that point, I had to stop what I was doing and walk away from it all. As I sat at my desk, I started to think about the things in my life that could/could not be changed, and I wondered how I could get everything I have to done while maintaining some semblance of sanity.

As I get older, I’m starting to realize that there are things in life that have to be done to secure a future for myself. Be that as it may, I’ve become so concerned with making sure that schoolwork gets done, and that I make it to work that there is an almost non existant social life to balance out my work life. Where does one draw the line?

Random Thought of the Moment: ” I need to get back into blogging. I’ve forgotten how cathartic this is.”

    I’ve found that when that overwhelming work feeling hits it’s best to just walk away from it and come back to it later.

    Just think: Soon it’ll all be over and you’ll be off on the adventure of a lifetime! 🙂

    Everyone’s line is different. Right now, your social life suffers but the summertime is almost here.
    Keep pushing B. It’s almost over.
