My Plans for the Rest of the Day

I am not positive as to whether or not I am for sure but I can be pretty positive to the fact that I am pretty sure I have OCD. Everyday I find it quite vital that I write out my day schedule. It helps me to piece together my day or otherwise my mind becomes way too cluttered. So my daily plan is something that I will write about on today's blog. So I plan on working here in the library until around 3 or 3:15. I plan on finishing these blogs and then completing my presentation for my College Writing Research project. Once I am done with this I am going to head over to the Lewis fitness center where I will take a little break and get some stress relief on a two and a half mile run. Working out is definitely my form of stress relief throughout the day. I love the feeling that I get after one of my runs I truly feel like I can just conquer the world which is the feeling that I am currently looking forward to due to my current afternoon tiredness that always seems to hit me around this time. After my run I plan on heading back to the library to complete the rest of my homework. My main goal is to study, study, study for my Culture and Civilization exam. I am not too concerned on this test because I have done pretty well on the last two but I also do not want to jinx myself in any way possible. After I have done that I usually stay till around 6:30 in the library and then I head home for dinner, which is probably my favorite part of the night. After that I plan on relaxing and just to continue studying for my exam tomorrow. Wish me luck!
So much is going on

Seriously I can't even write in words just how much seems to be going on now that we are here at the end of the semester. It seems like a lot of things are starting to pile on top of one another and I am trying my very best to take a deep breathe and let this happen one thing at a time. I am not really surprised with my feelings at this end of the semester. It seems that this feeling always comes to me. I think it is mainly my nerves and trying to just finish up the semester on a strong note. I am confident that I will but for some reason I always get a little nervous that I won't. Today I am working on breaking my schedule down and working on specific priorities at first. My first goal is to complete the class presentation for this college writing class because know that I have my paper complete this task should not be too difficult at all. Once I have finished that for the day I am then going to go on and study for my culture and civilization exam which is tomorrow. I am not too worried about this test but I also know that it is quite vital that I study in order to do well on the exam. I am really trying my best to not allow this stress to get to me too much.

A Year Ago Today

Wow, so I am currently thinking in my head and looking back on the past tonight. I am trying to remember not specifically but in more broad terms what I was up to last year at this time and what my feelings were. To be completely honest I wasn't quite sure how I felt about going to Lewis. I was excited but nervous as to whether or not I was making the right choice for my college career. Luckily I am able to confidently say yes to this today which makes me very happy. It was hard last year making my college choice when I heard so much feedback from high school friends and learned where they were going. Many of my friends were going far away and I truly did not want to do this, but it made me wonder whether I was making a mistake. I am happy to say today that I indeed was not making a mistake it just seemed at the time that many people had their own opinions on what or where I should go with my life but my parents always reminded me to make the decision for myself and to do what I wanted to do and what I knew was best for myself. Lewis is the perfect school for me because it allows me to be close to my home which I love but also allows me to keep my job and make money. I find that college has taught me major responsibility and how I am now accountable for things in my life.
Monday is Complete

Wow I seriously can't believe that this is my last monday of actual school in my first year of college! It has literally shocked me how fast this year has flown by. I remember in high school things went fast and then people would tell me to just wait for college when things fly by even faster and it seriously could not be more true. I seriously love Lewis and am so impressed with all of the knowledge I have gained in just one year. Looking back I sometimes can't believe all that has happened in only a year, but right now it seems that this year just flew by completely. If I had to choose a school all over again I would most definitely choose Lewis University every single time. I feel at home at this school and I am in love with the environment and campus that this school has to offer.
popcorn and homework

Okay so tonight I am trying to catch up on a lot of different bits and pieces of homework and assignments for the end of the semester. I love getting the chance to get caught up on this stuff. While I was working my mom actually suprised me with a bowl of her homemade popcorn which is by far my absolute favorite dessert and she surprises me every once in a while with it. She makes it on the stove and it just always has that perfect taste. For some reason I actually enjoy doing my homework in the evening. It is soothing and relaxing to me. I love my tea at night and and relaxing with it. It gives me a chance to take a deep breate, breath in and prepare for the next day ahead! I love how at Lewis my schedule varies from mondays to tuesdays because it seems to keep things more interesting and changes things up throughout my week.

Whats my plans for later

So later today I plan on just finishing a bunch of homework and projects that just need to get done because if they don't it will truly bug me! I love sundays because I find that on this day I get a chance to catch up and prepare for the week that is ahead. I worked the close shift last week and I am so very glad that its not something I need to do this weekend. I can honestly say that working the close shift at my job can be a little stressful at times. We are responsible for all of the deposits and closing on money for the end of the night which makes me nervous at times to have such a big responsibility but I am also honored that my boss trusts me with this very important job. I remember one night the cash register was under by 500 dollars and I freaked out. I remember going crazy. I went looking to make sure I had collected all of the money and recounted the money multiple times. I decided at one point that it was getting late and I needed to call my boss to make him aware of the situation. Once I called him he started laughing and said oh sorry that was me I took it out this morning! I was so thankful and relieved but was screaming inside at the fact that I had been frantic for about one hour! At least I know that for next time I will just call my boss right away if this were to happen again, but hopefully never, haha.

Currently the biggest thing on my brain seems to be grades. We are coming near the end of the semester and it seems that during this time in the semester grades seem to be very important. It is also irritating because one or two of my grades is at the border line point from an A- to an A and I really just want the A! Hardwork and effort are both very important to me in my academic career as I realize that it is the only way that I am going to make progress in my life. I must stay focused on all of the wonderful content that I am learning and keep making my brain grow and develop to new different levels. The grades that I have I believe are a true reflection of my work ethic and I want to hold the standards of an exceptional work ethic. I am excited to see where my grades turn out but am also anxious. I just know that I must stay focused these last few weeks of the semester.
