Well it’s finals week, which means late nights, lots of sitting and staring at a computer screen, and study snacks. To top it all off the weather is absolutely beautiful outside, though I’m sure if I go outside with the intention of studying I’ll spend more time sunbathing than actually memorizing literary terms. 😉
Finals week always kind of feels like a blur, it’s intense when your in the middle of it, but once it’s over I’m not exactly sure what happened.
Usually for me finals week consists of lots of coffee, but since I’m off coffee right now (it makes my anxiety act up) I went for a lessened form of caffeine in the form of the Macachino drink from Suja Elements: It was delicious and the fact that I had a coupon for it made it even better.
Most of my study snacks lately have consisted of kale chips: and a little Emmy’s Organics raw vegan macaroons. This is their mint chip and they are absolutely fantastic. Soft, full of coconut, and amazing flavor! A healthier vegan treat. Also gluten free!
And popcorn! Though I did start my morning off with a short walk around campus to get the blood flowing and to make up for my very sedentary life at the moment. It’s also just refreshing to see that’s there life outside the walls of my apartment. 😉
Finally since it is a stressful time right now I’m trying to keep this mindset: Because it’s true. I can only do my best and it’s not worth it to stress about the rest. The fact that I’m here studying and working hard is enough. I can’t worry about what I can’t control. Remember to love yourself.
“At this very moment, you may be saying to yourself that you have any number of admirable qualities. You are a loyal friend, a caring person, someone who is smart, dependable, fun to be around. That’s wonderful, and I’m happy for you, but let me ask you this: are you being any of those things to yourself?”
