I’M ALIVE!!!

Hiya people! So after two weeks of sickness, exams, and papers, I am finally back to bring you all my weekly post. Now I’m going to be honest; trying to think of what to write this Thursday was exceedingly difficult because normally I would report something positive about the recent events and news of our beautiful Muskingum campus. But as I previously announced, my last few weeks have been rough. Starting with the dreaded E word….exams. More specifically for me, I had a history exam(history is not my strongest subject). This was my second exam for this class, this semester and, after the backlash of the first exam, I was determined to study as soon as I got the study guide. Also, the week before then I had been very sick. So while I am already sick with one thing, studying, and cramming my brain with a large amount of information, I somehow managed to get sick with something else. These were troubling times in the kingdom. It was just one thing after another, the stress was building, I was extremely anxious for the exam, and my immune system was taking the beating of a life time. During all of this, I also had multiple papers to write.

But then I remembered what my mother taught me. Take one thing at a time. I also knew the stress wasn’t healthy and that I needed to take care of myself first. So one weekend I stopped my studying and just relaxed. I drank some hot chocolate, read a good book, listened to some good music, and just cleared my mind of everything that was really making me unhealthy. One important thing to remember in school is that you are your first priority. School is important but your well being and sanity come first. After that, I had my exam and you know what? I got an A-. All that worrying for nothing. I also finally got better with a lot of antibiotics(courtesy of the campus wellness center) and some serious and well-deserved rest and relaxation. It was quite the battle but I made it and now I’m healthy and happy and that’s all that matters. Moral of the story? No matter how bad it seems or how difficult things get, as long as you’re still breathing by the end of the day, you can make it. Also, appreciate being healthy. Being sick for three weeks makes you realize how unappreciated good health is.

Alright! That’s all I got! Peace!
