#mybad and other sayings I’ll leave in 2016.
Happy New Year! I’m still alive.
I know I have not been keeping up with this blog as I should have been, but let me TELL you: grad school is no joke. I could go on and on about the issues, the stress, the illness, the tears, the just straight up laying on the floor like what am I DOING….but I wont’t do it. As a matter of fact, I’m leaving complaining behind in 2017. It’s annoying, and it’s exhausting, and if you know me, then you know I don’t like doing things if they make me tired, so….bye bye whiny time.
Moving forward, though, I’ve had a really productive first day of the new year, and it’s only 2:30 PM EST at the time of this writing. I’m coming in with a new perspective. I’m fresh off of a birthday (my Jordan year, turn up for 23!), I’ve had some great conversations back home with friends, family, and some new people who have inspired me to really take the reins and be in charge of my own life and my own future and what I want to get out of the decisions that I make. I know that my studies will only get more rigorous and time consuming, but I know that I will reap so much reward, and the effort I put into my remaining time in school will really determine the quality of what I get out of this.
When I started writing this post, I thought, “I should probably include some sort of list outlining my goals for the year,” or something like that…but, you know what? Why limit myself? Why give myself a list of things that Moriah on January 1, 2017 wants? What if Moriah on January 2, 2017 wants something else? What about April 4, 2017 Moriah? July 23rd? The point is, I feel well enough within myself in THIS moment that I feel like a list of resolutions is unnecessary. So. With that being said, this new perspective should mean (a little) less stress, which will hopefully correlate into me keeping up with this blog and keeping you all updated on the ins and outs of what I’m doing over in little ‘ol Budapest (and beyond! I graduate in 6 months, mind you).
I hope you all had a great new years day and will continue to have a fantastic year! I know I plan to.
Peace and Love,
