Just biked home from school and I have about 45 minutes till I have to go to work until 11pm... ugh. I am completely famished seeming as on days where I'm at ASU I don't eat lunch... I actually rarely eat all day because although I wake up early enough to have breakfast, I have no time to actually eat with last minute homework to organize. I even stayed up till 2am last night doing homework and there was still more to be done this morning. So now, here I sit trying to figure out what to eat. Nothing is coming to mind that doesn't require me to spend money or spend time preparing. I understand the college student menu of mac n' cheese and PB & J. I fear I will be gaining the freshman fifteen at the age of 23 (almost 24) with all the processed or fast food.
I feel MUCH better about school. Over the weekend (with all the work I had to do) I made it a point to remind myself of why I went back to school. NOT appearing on the list are: 4.0 GPA, best in my class, impress my professors, etc, etc. So why am I FREAKING out about these measly beginning of the semester assignments. The reason I went back to school was because I loved learning and I really wanted a bachelor's degree. If I'm not enjoying the learning process than why am I doing it. After I talked myself through that, I also took time out of homework (ie. procrastinated) to spend time with God. I read my Bible, went to college group... I spent time with family and friends... had a really great conversation with a friend over ice cream, and during that time I made it a point to not think about the need to be getting my homework done... and do you know what happened? As I sat down to write both of my papers sunday afternoon, I had this flood of peace and completed both papers with no trouble. Then today in my History 101 class my professor cancelled the quiz and let us out early. This allowed me to finish my reading for my next class REL 494, which I would not have been able to do otherwise, and then I arrived at my next class and that quiz too was postponed. Sweet!! I am in for yet another busy weekend of homework... there is no rest for the scholastic.
Also realized that my bike isn't as pretty as the other bikes on campus... I want this bike... with a basket and streamers.
