I am pretty sure this isn't my first blog with this title. However, I haven't blogged in a few weeks and I am beginning to feel guilty. I feel like like if crazy busy. I look at the clock each night and wonder where my day went. For those of you who are looking for an update on my life here you go.
I am in a Music Methods class. I hate it. However, today in my psychology class I became a case study. One thing that I can do to better myself in this class is come up with a goal, plan, and a positive attitude. So, I am going to work on that. I have to convince myself that I can do something before my efforts are manifest to others. Yes, I am still getting tutored weekly for this class. I am going to take full advantage of it.
I mentioned I am in a psychology class. I absolutely love it. My teacher is great. I really enjoy waking up and going to class the days I have this class. I feel good when I leave the class. I am also reading Boys Adrift for the class. It is a great book. I am gaining wonderful insights.
I am in a P.E. class this semester as well. I like the class. I wake up sore every morning after class. I miss being in shape. This class has motivated me to try to exercise more. I am also working on a physical wellness plan for my family foundations class. I am running some at night. I don't know how long it will last with the weather starting to change. (It snowed this morning!) However, I have another friend teaching a cycling class that I want to try to go to weekly.
Family Foundations is a good class. I am learning a ton about Heavenly Father and his plan for me. I thought this class would be a waste of time, but it isn't. There are a ton of hidden messages in the Proclamation and wonderful talks given by general authorities to support it.
I am in a writing class as well. This class is aimed towards elementary education majors. I am enjoying it. I read a few children's books this week and enjoyed them. I like short children's novels. They restore your inner child and rejuvenate your imagination. I have to do a ton of writing for the class but I don't mind. I enjoy writing. I am also building my library of children's books. It is an addiction.
I am in a Geology class as well. I was unaware about how clueless I am about the world around me and how it works. My simple questions, like why the sky is blue, are being answered. I enjoy learning about the world. I am glad I have the chance to do so. I also discovered how much I hate labeling maps because of this class. I'll leave map-making to the professionals.
So those are my classes. I also went to devotional yesterday and it was amazing. The speaker talked about God's arms of Mercy, Love, and Strength. He made so many good points. I really did enjoy devotional and I think I will try to go to them more frequently.
So, in short, I am just living life. When something bad happens I tell myself, "It's only life." and then I listen to the song. Life has its ups and downs but I am going to try to be more positive and focus on the ups. When I have a terrible, horrible, no good, bad day I will just think to myself, "It's only life." Then I will make the next day a gazillion times better.
