Well, this might have to be a quick log because I’ve got to start getting ready for work soon, but I couldn’t leave without writing today because it’s been a couple days since! It’s fair though, because school started and I’ve been pretty busy as a result.
I’ve got to talk about how amazing things with school have been so far! I’ve only had two classes as of yet but I’m already SO, SO excited about what’s to come.
I’m so glad that the universe allowed me to go back to my start, now that I’m finally ready to move ahead with my life. And what I mean by that is, my Psych class this year is with the exact same prof I had in first year, in the EXACT same lecture hall. What are the odds? Truly, there is no coincidence.
And that professor is so incredible, with such an amazing energy. She inspires me to want to take this as far as I can go, because of how far she’s gone herself.
My thoughts were a little scattered a couple moments ago so I just took a second to breathe and bring myself back into this present moment. I was writing this while thinking about how I have to start getting ready for work soon, and that sole fact was creating a block in my mind as to what I wanted to address in this log.
Like even looking back at how I started this ^. “It has to be a quick log because I have to get ready for work.” That moment will come when it does! I create such unnecessary stress for myself by living even a couple moments ahead of my present moment. I’ve got to work on that.
That being said, I should work on my time management skills. I honestly feel like I spend a little too much time doing unnecessary things on my phone, when I could be spending that time doing other things, being more productive. But, on the bright side, at least I’m aware of it as it is happening. I’m so much more aware of a lot of things these days.
Anyways! Back to catching up with me, with school, with this moment.
Right now, there’s a beautiful breeze coming in through the net door that leads to our patio and, man. I can’t even begin to express how happy this season makes me. I love all seasons for particular reasons, but there really isn’t any season like autumn. Nothing makes my heart happier than a beautiful fall scented candle, the sound of the leaves skittering across the pavement in the cool fall breeze, that crisp chill in the air.
So, school. I’ve had two classes, my Psych class and my class on extraterrestrial debate (which I’m also extremely excited for). I’m so in awe and excited for the classes I’ve managed to get into! I’m sure there’s reasons for each. Like my other classes are: modes of reasoning in regards to social issues, and the nature of disasters and how it affects society (which can’t be more relevant than it is now, with three hurricanes churning around the Atlantic basin at this current moment.)
It’s going to be such a great year! My mind will be expanding and growing now in a more intellectual capacity, alongside the mental and spiritual ways I’ve grown as a person.
Onto a more somber yet hopeful topic – I went with John to the Personal Counselling Services after we both finished class yesterday! I’m so proud of him, and so beyond happy that he opened up to me. This is going to be so great for him, I know it. We sat and talked for a while afterwards and I can tell that there’s so much of him that’s on that higher level vibration! But, he just has to get past his demons first. That kind of change always seems to come from overcoming one’s personal struggles though, or experiencing adversity. He’s going to be okay. I have so much faith in this. And I think after yesterday, he’s starting to have that hope too.
My heart is so happy. This is what I want to do. I just want to be able to help. And going through with this degree, moving forwards with it? I know it’s going to give me the necessary tools to be able to help people who experience these kinds of circumstances.
Anyways, that’s about it for these past couple days! Today I have work, and I am excited. A lot of great people are back to work now, like Dianne and Sera!!
Oh and more good news! So far, there aren’t any tests or assignments that conflict with my Grand Cayman Islands trip (which my mom said yes to, due to a convincing brochure I made, oh boy). Maybe this was meant to be after all! I’m still waiting on two more course outlines though, so we’ll see. Still, my heart is hopeful!
Before I scamper off to get ready for work – my date is tomorrow! I can’t believe how quickly this week has flown by. I’m really excited :$. It’ll be nice to end off (or begin?) this week with Dylan, and a good scary movie.
So he recently posted that he’s got a whole book of tickets for the upcoming Leaf’s games for this hockey season, which is just about to start (or has started, if you count the rookie games/preseason). I’m seriously lowkey hoping he’ll ask me to one of them, LMAO. I mean, how cute would that be!? Because it’d be my first game ever, and yeah. But we’ll see. If he doesn’t ask, then I’ll find a way to go myself! Last season really made me realize how enjoyable it is to watch hockey, to keep up with it. I’ve got a good feeling about this though.
That’s about it for today! I’ll write tomorrow after the date, about how it went and what I’m looking forward to for the week! Oh but another thing I wanted to write about before I wrap this up; I want to keep seeing my counsellor this year. I know I’m in a much better place now than I was one year ago but, still. There’s definitely room for improvement, and more than anything else, I would love to maintain this newfound mental sanctuary of mine! She was so great to me throughout the year, and I would love to be able to keep seeing her, to keep working on whatever residual insecurities and anxieties I may still have.
Alright! Not bad for a “quick log”, hehe. Life is so great! I hope it’s the same for every single person I love and care about, and even the people I don’t know, or have yet to meet!
