Only 10 more weeks. I have to somehow find the motivations to survive 10. more. weeks (I’m not counting or anything 😉 ) . This semester has been by far the hardest semester as far as motivation goes. I know my fellow classmates are feeling it as well. The second you walk into the classroom, you can just feel the aura of crazy seeping out of all of us. Many of us are on the verge of a Brittney Spears break down where we all shave our heads and break crap with umbrellas. The struggle is real.
The last few weeks I have been trying to find new ways to find motivation to get my giant to do list completed. I decided that I needed to start doing some things I enjoy in order to make it through all of the crap that I don’t want to do. I have started attending a hot yoga class on Saturdays and working out regularly again. Since Colorado has been confused about what season it is and thinks it should be 72 degrees in February, I decided to take Nastia and Taco out to Red Rock Canyon Open Space. As excited as I am to move, I will miss being able to go on a cool hike without driving for hours to get there. Colorado has some seriously beautiful views that are hard to find anywhere else.
Leave a comment and let me know how you prevent “senioritits” or burnout? What do you like to do combat the sheer laziness and lack of motivation?
Last thing, Send some prayers and positive thoughts my mom’s way tonight if you could! She has a big day tomorrow and could use the extra positive energy going her way. Thanks 🙂
