***TRUE STORY TIME: This dang post has been pending since the middle of January. I still have a massive case of writer’s block. I have that essay to write about how I am awesome and
a suitable the best candidate… It’s hard to write these when you are feeling great about yourself, let alone how hard it can be if you’re feeling off your game. I’m ready to give it a solid shot though. It’s all thanks to this. An awesome (one bowl) chocolate cake can work wonders for your self-esteem. So here I am, I’ve made the awesome cake, I’m snuggled under a warm blanket, and I am channeling Barney Stinson. Let the awesome begin!
The sun is peaking up from the horizon, Cody is still sleeping, and I am trying desperately to keep my post-workout endorphins flowing long enough to get me through the day.
It is so hard to do things sporadically, but it is also very difficult to maintain motivation. You’ve experienced this, right? If you’ve ever tried unsuccessfully to lose weight, to exercise more, to write every day, to keep up with ordinary home maintenance. It’s a common topic in the self-improvement world, implying that it is a successful technique and an issue many people struggle with.
Right this moment, I am struggling with hiccups, lack of motivation, writer’s block, and finding a way to get this dang song out of my head. It’s a good song, don’t get me wrong – but it’s blocking any other thoughts that may sneak up. A week ago, I would tell you I was struggling with not exercising, not being able to focus on my GRE studying, or my internship applications. I’m starting this week off slightly better than last as I’ve already hit the gym this morning and my GREs are behind me.
There are a total of 25 days standing between me and a complete application packet… Between me and a 2 day nap (or possibly two days on the couch having soup and watching Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother). I have a lot of work to do to earn those days… BTW we are at 17 days now
