It's been hot and humid in central VA so far this week. This echos my mood. I'm in my last week of work, I got my final grade in Human Anatomy (A!! I can't believe I thought I was going to fail that class!!), and I'm getting ready to start a brand new academic program. I feel like this stage of my life I've been in since college, where I've been waiting for the next big thing to happen, is finally ending.
It's not that I've been unhappy in Charlottesville, especially since Jacob moved in with me. I've loved living with him for the past year! It's just that I haven't felt fulfilled or like I was moving forward. But now I am!
I'm working on changing my attitude, too. Focusing less on things that don't matter, and more on my attitude towards myself. I want to be the healthiest, happiest person I can be. And I am trying to remember that I am only accountable to myself. Only I will know if I eat too many calories in a day, and it's just myself I'm cheating. Only I have to live with the time I get in a race. I don't even have to tell anyone else what my time was if I don't want to! I'm trying to take responsibility for myself, and also try to care less what other people think. I'm responsible for my own happiness.
2 more days of work after today! There's a mood lifter if I ever saw one!
