Monday, January 28


Recently, I've been feeling an overwhelming sense of melancholy and a general sense of being stuck. These feelings did not surprise me, given that my horoscope for the month mostly said, "This month will suck your will to live and you won't accomplish anything because the world wants you to suffer." Thanks a heap, Marie Claire magazine horoscope. You are the worst.

But today after almost an entire month of massive frustration, I feel better and less stuck! The reason: I finally finished the WORST section of all time in my Dental Assisting Clinical Overview class. Excuse me for not being able to memorize the uses for 30299 different waxes that are mostly all EXACTLY THE SAME. :( But I finally took the test today and only missed one. Special shout out to the winter storm last night that prevented me from going out with the Boyfriend and forced me to study instead. Props, weather.

Now that the huge weight of this section is off of my chest, everything feels like it's back on track. Now I won't have to feel guilty about watching movies, reading books, being with my friends, or just relaxing because now I feel a renewed sense of self and determination.

It's so easy to get bogged down in a temporary trial, but it's so dangerous to let it get to you and discourage you. I have so much I want to accomplish, especially within the next year that I really don't have time to let anything get to me and pull me down. Last year, I let myself get pulled down and I lost a lot of time that could have been spent pursuing my dreams and moving on.

Keep persevering. Don't let anything keep you down longer than it has to. Power through what is giving you a hard time and, as hard as it is, appreciate the trial and learn from it. Who knows, maybe tomorrow on the street some woman will have a dental emergency. She will open her purse full of wax and say "QUICK! I DON'T KNOW WHICH WAX TO USE TO STICK MY APPLIANCES TOGETHER! WHO CAN HELP ME?" I'll calmly glide over to her and say, "Easy, use your Sticky Wax. BOOM." You never know :)

Here's James Franco reading a book again. He is a God. See you soon :)
