scary week

In Uncategorized on November 17, 2009 by Emily ( Tagged: , ,

good evening bloggies. i really should be asleep right now, it is way past my bedtime. but sue me, i wanted to blog.

so today was monday, and now its over and i am grateful. now i just need to tackle tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. i’m scared. in all honesty my anticipation of this week has left me very anxious and panic-y, all i want to is sleep until thursday afternoon when i go home. but that is not an option.

thursday is going to be a challenging day, there is no way around it. i have a presentation, statistics midterm, and data management exam. oh and i have 15 minutes between the stats test and data management test to get across the very large campus. it doesn’t help that i am completely lost in statistics, and tend to be quite the nervous public speaker.

i am indeed being very negative. i’m trying to pull myself back, because i know the best way to get through this week is to attack the present moment rather than anticipate the pitfalls of the future. but my brain is so much better at being pessimistic.

i was however somewhat enlightened by one my group members this evening. all he simply said was, “it’s all going to work out” and i immediately responded with a sarcastic “oh, if you say so” but then i was thinking about it, and he is right. it is all going to work out. it probably won’t be my most graceful of weeks (hell i nearly fell down trying to open up the library door because i missed the handle) but nothing is going to stop this week from happening.

so now i’m here, and i need to face it head on.

& i am totally a picture slacker, my deepest apologies :( here’s a little thanksgiving peek-a-boo


totally looking forward to the race, i walked it last year & my goal was to run it this year, but i'm readjusting to enjoy walking it next week :)

oh & i finished wasted yesterday, loved it. marya hornbacher is a beautifully insightful women, who isn’t afraid to be honest. and like i’ve said before i appreciate honesty.

i have to quote her again.

“There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn’t one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.

ps–how is your week looking? big plans? goals? questions/comments/concerns/obscenities (as my communications professor likes to say)

  3. Good morning, dear!
    Wasn’t the book such an inspiration? Upon reading it, I decided I could never let myself get that sick– it’s so unfortunate and she’s such a talented writer. She could have (and still should) written SO many beautiful novels.. But everything happens for a reason right? If it wasn’t for her book, those with ED wouldn’t have been able to feel so inspired.. In a way, she’s saving lives.

    I’m so sorry you feel so stressed. I had to take statistics twice– that class was the death of me! If you need any help or anything at all, never hesitate to contact me via blog, email, facebook, etc– I”M SERIOUS! I’d love to help any way I can :)

    Hang in there and keep smiling, you’re making the world a better place.
