Lazy Sunday


bearsLooking at that picture I wonder to myself whether it’s a polar bear doing an impression of a human – are we really a great source of amusement for other animals in the animal kingdom? Unless I am reincarnated upon death, I am afraid I shall never know.

Today is  a lazy Sunday, I’m not feeling like myself, just stressed out, worn out and ready for something new to begin. Unfortunately I still have one more application to go and what I thought would be simple enough as were all the others this one requires two different statements be attached to my application – a statement of personal history and a statement of goals and employment history. I completed a general statement a few weeks ago and catered it to all of my schools but once I logged in to complete the online app for this particular school I found out that they would like two separate essays and, to be quite honest, I just don’t feel like doing them today. It took so much time and effort to complete the first essay and now I’m faced not only with writing a second but tearing apart the first to suit the questions asked – le sigh. No one said this would be easy I know but some things, some days, just feel like they are a test of my stick-to-it-tiveness.

I’m not in a good mood today either which is more than likely contributing to my lack of excitement about these essays. I rarely have ‘bad mood’ days but when I do they suck me in and all I want to do is put a movie on, crawl in to bed and eat junk food all day, but inevitably this would lead to me throwing up on the comforter and having to change the bed clothes which is most certainly the most tedious of house cleaning tasks. Call it the Sunday blues with a touch of ‘why can’t everyone just want to please me’ syndrome. I know you know what I’m talking about – it’s totally unfair but some days, lets be honest, we don’t always care about what is fair and what is not. Some days we just want someone to bring us flowers, cook us meals and shower us with statements of all of the things that make us great. See I told you I was feeling down and now I’ve dragged you down too…or else you’re sitting there thinking about what an impossible person I must be to live with which could very well be true. The hardest thing for me about days like this is that I am an optimist as of the last few years of my life, I seek to be happy because it makes me and others happy too but it is a fact that even when you seek to be happy all of the time, you will have a bad day or two once in a while.

Enter bad day.

    I really don’t know why they want to know statement of goals. I am a person whose all about the present and the reason I want to go to school is to take one step closer to my future and my immediate goal is attending grad school. what more do they really need to know and do they actually read it?

    I feel your pain, sister!

    This past week has been a series of one-two punches from the Cosmos over here in michellanyville, and I’m ready to cry ‘Uncle!’ In fact, I’ve pretty much been huddled under a comfy blanket all weekend and (over)indulging in old B&W movies and my favorite anesthetic, chocolate! (And yes, I did sorta’ resemble that polar bear…)

    Hang in there! You can DO this! You’re at Mile 20 of the Application Marathon…don’t give up now! Lots of us are waiting to congratulate you at the Finish Line!

      Michelle you are the sweetest, kindest person I have met in such a long while and I hope that your week changes for the better this week too! I am refreshed from a good nights sleep (Buzz never sleeps on Sunday night – workaholic much? hah) so I always sleep like a princess and today I intend on tackling these essays like my life depended on it!
      Thank you for the encouragement and if you ever need a black and white movie and chocolates buddy I’m always free 😀
