DAY 001

 

I feel like it's been a while since I've written like this. My mind is buzzing with thoughts to share and my fingers are just itching to tick away at the keyboard. 

giphy.gif

 

I start the day like any other, in the pure bliss between consciousness and dreams, and forgetting reality. Then with a panicked start. I remember I'm in college. I remember I've made mistakes I'm having to go back and fix. I remember me. (hot damn this sounds dark and brooding) I remember the things I want to do but can't, and the things I need to do but won't.

I've got the fatherlord reminding me I'm getting older, that life is short, that accidents happen. (and I feel like I'm hopping around the subject again... whatever it was) Glad I got that car accident out of the way a few years ago. I think people have a number of accidents in their life. That's the way the world was made when it was programmed, right? I think the code is glitching again. (and I'm rambling again. yup)

Anyways I went to school early, got some studying done, and looked at community colleges. I've been at my university too long and good ol' texan politicians want to give me an incentive to get out quick... like doubling tuition for each credit hour until you graduate. Gotta love the rich ol' white men who love stickin' it to other ppl. I don't know how that would work being transferred to another school or if I could grab a few hours and go back to the university to get a fancier looking degree I can hang in my future cubicle.

I tried sticking to pomodoros to study, but still got distracted. The fatherlord kept texting me and giving me a lovely mini panic attack each time. But hey, it gets the blood pumping.

I came home to meatloaf being smoked on the grill outside. My dad just loves experimenting with food. The loaf was completely raw, but it had a nice smoky flavor. It's meals like these that remind me I should batch cook for the fam. I'll start making a list of recipes that are okay to put in the freezer. Right after I finish my essay for one class, record a speech for another, and record a mock interview for the third. Good thing I had an exam last week on my fourth class or else I'd be down a deep metaphorical hole that lil metaphorical me had the pleasure of digging.

That sounds like a really busy week. I hope you've got time to relax in the weekend.

There is technology that can help you with this. 
I also found the article about the dark playground on Shello's thread (first post) very inspirational in this regard. Maybe it an inspire you as well

My professors keep me on my toes and my nose in a book/ laptop. 

 

Thanks for the links! Steve's articles are always helpful. I'm gonna try out rescuetime and see how that goes. Shello's thread gets me. Procrastinating is a big problem of mine. I've tried paper calendars and planners in the past,, but those don't work out well for me. I've got a few productivity apps on my phone that need a good use.

My CARROT app for the to-do list is always fun. Never hurts to have a portal game glados like character bossing you around.

The pomodoro app needs to be used more when I'm getting assignments done. 

The countdown app is nice, but it lacks more notifications. I'd love to be at least two weeks ahead of that schedule. 

 

We'll have to wait and see if the RescueTime is all of my old apps in one. If it is I don't mind paying for the premium account.

sorry for the late update. 

I finished a big project for a class and turned it in early! I'm still cramming for an online exam that's due by friday. After that I've got spring break to look forward to. 

 

I'm meeting with my counselor tomorrow to discuss switching colleges. My university is charging me double tuition for some reason and I find it easier to take my last classes at a community college and transfer back rather than jump through hoops and struggle through.

 

I'll update last weeks results after I take care of that biz.

DAY 006 & 007 & 008 & 009 & 010

 

I can't say much happened this week. I went to work, I went to class, I stayed home and did online class. I spent my day off at home working on a large project. Maleficent came home on her break to throw stuff in a slow cooker. It freaked her out that I was at home, let alone not in my room. I don't think I've socialized with any irl people other than the immediate fam and coworkers. And my betta fish that lived atop my desk.

So much has happened today. I went to work and hugged some puppies. My favorites were the husky and boxer one. Thanks to my job I know all puppy breath smells like morning coffee. The district manager came in to our store today for a check up. All the managers were there, which isn't something I see on a weekday morning. He introduced himself and asked where I was in college. I said accounting (which isn't true anymore at this point.) He said I could apply for an internship at headquarters in Arizona. According to his statistics most employees who apply for internships at headquarters after working with the company for over a year make the cut, and those who stick it out at the internship get hired. I thought that was an amazing opportunity that was too good to be true. In hindsight, the only job I could apply for would be HR and I have no idea what entitles. I do have a friend who works for HR for a completely different company in a different city. Maybe I could ask her how she likes it, what her work day consists of, the pros and cons, etc.

I went straight to campus after work to for walk-in's with my adviser. I recorded the whole conversation, but have no urge to relisten to it. Bascially she says I've screwed myself over (which I have by dragging my feet). I've been in college too long, have too many hours, and can't make up my own mind on what the heck I wanna do. I have no idea what I can do with a multidisciplinary studies degree and even if I did i don't think I'd enjoy that career. I'd rather have a desk job crunching numbers and not interacting with people too much. That's what accountants do, right? My dad seems dead set on me getting an accounting degree and refuses to accept that I'm stuck in this predicament. He even went so far as to email the parents of a childhood friend of mine hinting for an internship. I don't know what to do in this situation. My adviser says that transferring over to a junior college would only get me an associates and put me a step back in my career. If I did get classes elsewhere and tried reapplying to the college of business they would hold me as a transfer student and not recognize those courses to my degree. Plus my current university would hold me to the new standard which my gpa still wouldn't meet. Is there a give up button somewhere because I'd sure love to know where that is.

I came home and went straight to my room. I had a bottle of jolly-rancher vodka in my hands before I knew what happened. I kept googling things to do with multidisciplinary studies and not getting any results I wanted to hear. Then looked up four year community colleges which I don't think is a thing. Before I knew it dinner was happening and I had to start eating fast so I didn't start crying in front of the fam. Everyone was quiet since the meal was so good. We had king ranch chicken. It's an odd combo between a casserole and a soup with cream of mushroom, cream of chicken soup, shredded chicken, corn tortillas, several cheeses, green/yellow/orange bell peppers, and tomatoes. While everyone was lethargic from eating so much I snuck off back to my room. I'm in my room so much everyone thinks that's the norm for me. Maleficent and Lilith ask me what I'm doing if they see me out and about during daylight. They never question that I might be depressed or stay in a safe place where I don't have to interact with them.

I spent the rest of my time after dinner going through my old challenges. Around my earthbending challenge was when things got rocky. My grandma had passed away the month before that challenge, I was cooking for the fam almost everyday, I was picking up  Lilith from school, and cleaning house for four other people. And somehow through all of that I was able to post almost everyday. And in posting everyday I counted my calories, alternated between cardio and strength workout, and read a fun book. I spent so much time doing those things so I could brag about it here. It only took me three challenges (+120 days) to read all seven harry potter books. And I remember after finishing the last one I had an epiphany the same morning. It was like being on a runners high for the whole day. I had this urge to do something with my life, but couldn't figure out what. Like that word that's on the tip of your tongue and the harder you try to say it the harder it becomes to do so. I think I had several different story lines going on in my head. That week I would have breakfast in silence in the house (since everyone was at work or school) and think of a new story to write.

Looking back at old challenges makes me uncomfortable. I could see how depressed I was in most of my posts and how I tried to hide behind it by distracting myself by working out, reading, bragging about it online and giving a sarcastic tone about my overall life. And overusing gifs. and being creepily happy whenever someone replied to the threads. which would explain the high number of views and lost responses. My airbending challenge was interesting. The only thing that kept me doing yoga every morning was a youtuber's 30 day challenge playlist I found. If it wasn't for some bad weather that one day I might not have stuck to yoga. Guess the only thing that let's me stick to something is if I have a set path (either by an instructor or app) and a distraction like youtube videos for yoga and movies for running. I figured out now that there were two reasons I stopped running. I ran out of fun stuff to watch and some random person on a trail laughed at me for my efforts at running on a treadmill. I think I may have lies about meditating during the airbending challenge. I can't recall ever meditating during that time. I'm a terrible person for doing so, I know. I didn't realize how many guild leaders and big wig ambassadors I had following me back then.
