Take It One Day At A Time

Count your blessings and pray faithfully.

Take It One Day At A Time

This week, I have three exams. I have three exams in five days. While I can reassure you that my sanity is slowly but surely dwindling, I am taking the time to realize my blessings and count them carefully.

College is all about time management and planning for the future; you must make sure your future is bright by excelling above and beyond in the present. Unfortunately, class syllabi don’t always compliment each other and you end up with three exams in a week, like yours truly.

Sometimes, I feel the anxiety and fear of failing overwhelming my mental capacity, and essentially it debilitates me altogether. I worry so much about not doing well that it takes away from my ability to actually study and secure a good grade.

That’s when I realize I must pause and breathe. I must take a minute to remember that school is hard but it is not impossible. Life is rough but you can overcome it.

An education is not something everyone has the opportunity to attain, whether it’s because of financial reasons or because of societal restrictions such as those in developing countries.

I often take for granted my ability to go to a university and gain an education – an education that nobody will ever be able to take from me. I am blessed and I am fortunate.

The stress of deadlines and exams often cloud my gratitude, and during weeks like this, I must remember that I am working towards something. I am working towards a future for my future family and myself.

If you ever find yourself in a “dead week” like I am currently in, just remember to take it one day at a time. Maximize your hours and keep yourself focused.

Your stresses and worries will not defeat you unless you allow them to. Focus on your goals and take it one thing at a time – one exam, one deadline, one course at a time.

Do not look too far into the future, but keep it in view. You can do it, I believe in you! One day at a time, trust me. Count your blessings and pray faithfully, I promise everything will work out.

Now let’s hope I make it through this week alive and with my sanity.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
