This month was very inactive for me. I spent more than half of it sick and the other half in a reading slump where nothing caught my attention (or did I simply not find any good books to read? hmm.) There was also a lot of crap going on in uni: a midterm that was a take-home exam that I still haven’t finished (Advanced Fluid Mechanics if you’re curious. No, I don’t know what I was thinking when I registered for this elective), getting tough midterms in general (engineering is hard, people, okay? I swear I’m a good student.) and to top it all off, being told to sit for a retake for a quiz that I didn’t do well in because of the aforementioned prolonged illness. (I’M A GOOD STUDENT I SWEAR!!!!!)
A lot of shit, simply.
There are some good parts, though! I made some new friends who are super awesome and I feel like I can be myself with them and that has REALLY REALLY helped with my anxiety-induced low self esteem. I feel that I’m becoming more and more comfortable with talking to people, speaking out in class, and most importantly, looking people in the eye while talking to them. I still have days where I loath myself, I still have days when my self esteem dips low again, and I definitely still have a long road ahead of me, but I’m going to reach the end of this. I’m going to get better. I have to.
Another good thing? I developed a terrible crush on Leicester’s Mahrez. I’m a huge football fan (soccer for you american readers) and he’s just delicious. Insta-love, I tell ya. We can be this very diverse couple. I’ve already planned everything out.
If you’ve read until here, give yourself a pat on the back, because you deserve it. 🙂
