Drama, Mondays, and Chocolate

so. today has been exciting.

and it isn't even over yet.

I understand Mondays aren't so grand to begin with. But for some reason this Monday seems worse than others.  My attitude on the whole situation may have a lot to do with my not so great mood too.  So, since it's 4pm, and my day isn't getting any better on it's own, I've decided I will make it better.

The lady I babysit for at home posted this on her facebook a few minutes ago. Perfect timing. 

-There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

it's much easier said than done. Just getting up and walking away. People get hurt in the process, but it is literally wearing me out.  I am sick of it. I know drama will be everywhere I turn.  But I choose to not be involved, and to make a more conscious decision on how I react.  So- that's my choice right now- to rise above it. 

That's only one issue with my crazy day.

I was chosen (yippee skippy) to give a presentation in my Fine Arts class. So as I was preparing my power point, I realized that I forgot to include the Works Cited page to my assignment.  I had all the information, but I forgot to copy and paste it to the online turn-it-in place along with the essay.  I will make a zero on this assignment for this little copy and paste mistake.  I'm upset, not going to lie.  I spent a lot of time on the assignment and then I realize that one mistake cost me the grade.  But- then I choose to remember that it's one assignment.  I've done well on everything else. And I can make up a little bit of that grade by doing well on the presentation.  So I realized my sour attitude wasn't going to help the situation and I needed to move on. 

So I ate chocolate.  I needed chocolate.  I bought Reese's Pieces yesterday at the store.  They were on sale.  I probably shouldn't have those around me.  I think God knew I wasn't going to react to today very well so I believe he allowed me to purchase said candy. And now I am trying not to think about it.

I have so much to do these next few weeks. so much. But I am going to work on my attitude.  Being a good example and making a conscious effort to have a positive attitude and be thankful.

but I do still wonder frequently--is this semester over yet?

Praying your Tuesday will be better than your Monday. Maybe your Prof will give you some grace on your assignment since you have always cited your work.

I love you.....just keep counting the days until Spring Break.
