Running in place

raphaellestorm:

Sometimes, I feel like my hunger and desires are eating me alive. I try to stay calm and can’t. I want the whole world in my hands. I have a wanderlust so strong it burns a hole through the roof of my mouth. Life here just isn’t enough — I’m constantly starved, constantly asphyxiated. I’m always running away, but I’m still running in place.

Work in progress: stress management

The cause of my stress: having tried to read my accounting textbook for the longest time, almost 2 days, with lots of breaks in between, or else I’ll loose to boredom, I finally found what seems to be a solution to my anxiety/stress of not being of able to finish in time, the readings, the assignments, and the take home quiz that is due tomorrow.

Making a path for improvement: I’ve been meaning to try to figure out ways to make it easier on myself. One of which is not letting stress get the best of me. I’m going to try to find the ways that works for me and hopefully help others also if possible.

Action: I took a nice long shower, washed my hair (it always works, feels lighter, like a burden is lifted off my shoulders), and laid in bed with my eyes closed, even though I had wished I fell asleep, I knew it was impossible with my state of anxious mind. Yet, just laying down, and afterwards getting up, I felt so much better, I have more energy.

Here’s to documenting a successful attempt at stress management! Next time you’re feeling tired or drained, take a shower and just close your eyes for a bit (30 minutes to 1 hour), and then you can take on the world again :)

Liking? Why? Sometimes there are no reasons, you like what you like. There shouldn’t be any embarrassment or not let it show or express it publicly. 
Just like how I like dogs and pictures of them, I should not have to feel unworthy of posting my own inner thoughts. Social media is good that it allows us to express and connect with others, but for those of us who may not be as social might not feel included in sharing out thoughts for fears such as rejection. I have to remember that not everyone may have the same thoughts, and that is ok, there does not have to be agreement, there could be a deviation, it allows for different insights. I should post what I want to post, not because I want to satisfy anyone’s expectation of me and how I should be, life is about developments and changes, everyone does not stay exactly the same as they once were.

If you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you - you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing was ever going to happen again.

obscurite-revue said: Hey Marg, law school question coming your way. Any tips on how to read cases efficiently? Takes me hourssssss, so I wonder how a time-poor person like yourself gets through? X

shinebythree:

Reading cases is the one thing in Law School that there are no shortcuts for. I’ve found it easier to read the whole thing with a highlighter (rather than taking notes as you go), then trying to condense the facts into five dot points, and the judgement into a few sentences. Once I’ve done all my reading for the week, I have a Google of all my cases to see if I’ve wildly misinterpreted any of them.
