About Not Posting

All I can think of posting is about how I don’t post enough and that I can’t think of new things I want to write about.

Great.

Keeping Up

Consistent blogging is so difficult. It isn’t an easy task to post often, especially while balancing many other things at the same time (school, friends, stress, family, etc.), and I noticed I’m beginning to feel less inclined to keep this up.

In light of my recent lack of activity on this blog, I’m going to publish this very short post. Yes, it isn’t much, however, I do not want to abandon it. I added blogging to one of my “habits” on this website I recently signed up for, and it’s meant to help me with my productivity. Thus far, it’s been helping a bit, and I’ve already started a draft on a future post about it. Not sure when that’s going to be finished, but I do want to use the website for some time before reviewing it, so that I can be more accurate about its review. Hopefully, it will also get me back to posting more regularly.

Productivity

I struggle with productivity quite a bit, so I decided to try something. For the rest of the day I will log my activities, and then publish this post before I go to bed. I want to see how much time I actually waste, and how productive I am on a regular day at home. Here we go!

Lack of Sleep

I need more sleep–that’s generally my problem. Or rather, most college students’ problem. I always try really hard to stay awake at all times when I’m at school, especially when I’m in class. I kept dozing off today in art history class, and I tried to prevent it by sitting up, pinching myself, drinking water, etc., but I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. I didn’t actually fall asleep, but my eyes would shut and I wouldn’t realize it until I forced opened them again. In addition to my lack of sleep, the fact that it was already dark out, and that all the lights were off in the room except for the projector and the two lamps that gave off a soft, orange-y yellow glow, made me even more sleepy.

Annnddd… my professor noticed I was dozing off. Continue reading

My First Job

The first full week of classes is over, and honestly, it feels like I’m already much further into the semester. It feels like a lot of time has passed even though it hasn’t even been two weeks, and I don’t know if that’s a bad thing or not yet, but I’m trying to keep myself going and moving forward as best as I can. Moving on…

It’s all about your mindset.

I need to shy away from negative thoughts and influences as much as I can. I figure that if I change my perception, then the way I experience life will also change; I need to be more positive.

For example, my first job Continue reading

I Should Be Sleeping

I should be sleeping. I went shopping with my parents to Long Island and got a headache on the way there that persisted for hours, and it still lingers now. I ended up not buying anything, and coming home hungry, tired and really out of it, aannddd I have class bright and early tomorrow. I have to wake up at 5:26 am to be exact, and that’s if the first alarm manages to wake me.

I should be sleeping, but I can never bring myself to go to sleep early enough to get a decent amount of sleep for school. I still have to check the weather, pick out an outfit, pack my bag and lunch, clean my desk, water Nolie, my bamboo plant (yes I named my bamboo plant), and more…

I should be sleeping, but instead I just have to stay up listening to music and doing nothing, because that obviously feels more important.

I should be sleeping, but I can’t stop thinking about everything. Now more often than ever, I find myself stuck in my head so deeply, that I forget what I did right before or during I spaced out. I applied to a college as a transfer student last night, and filled out another application to send in this coming week, all that’s left is to pay for the application and send in my transcripts. I probably won’t end up transferring, but I will regret not applying more than spending the money on those applications. And it’s not just the college stuff, but that’s a chunk of it.

I should be sleeping, but the night beckons me to stay awake.

Sunset

Due to my nature of being somewhat lazy, I put off uploading these photos on my computer (which hardly took a minute anyway). These are from Tuesday the 27th, a sunset that was a bit more spectacular than usual.

I feel like I have more to say but I cannot put any of it into proper sentences; I can’t even organize these thoughts in my head. Nothing in particular, just.. everything is muddled.

On the bright side, I want to stay optimistic this semester, and so far it’s working out well. Hopefully I have enough will power to keep it that way.

 

Rushed

This is a rushed post, sort of. I want to get into the habit of posting, regardless of how much content there is or how interesting (at least at the beginning), so I don’t abandon the blog.

I’m exhausted and have a headache, and today was the first day of the spring semester. Continue reading
