Two weeks from now I will be at home, done with finals, and driving myself crazy studying for the MCAT.
I will still be happy to be done with finals though.
Today I ate a lovely dinner consisting of pita pizza and Edy’s French Silk Slow Churned Ice Cream, and then I sat down to study. But I started feeling super sad and nostalgic for a time when the holidays meant pure bliss and relaxation instead of STUDY YOUR BRAINS OUT FOR FINALS!
Hello outside world. Oh how I’ve missed you!
Today I went to wal-mart to buy toilet paper just so I could get out of my apartment…
It’s getting that bad. And I still have 2 weeks until finals.
So, because I need a pick me up, I thought I’d post some motivational quotes:
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” -Maria Robinson
“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” -Deepak Chopra
“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” -Marilyn Monroe
“Use what talents you possess, the woods will be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” -Henry van Dyke
“Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.”- Chinese Proverb
Did you find any of these quotes relate-able to your own life?
For me the Deepak Chopra and Marilyn Monroe quotes particularly struck me because of my fear and reluctance to grow up. I’m finally starting to be okay with “being an adult.” Growing up brings a lot of changes, some for better and some for worse (like my lousy holiday studying sessions), but being an adult is not something to fear or be reluctant about. It will be different, but not necessarily bad. I’m working on this
