I don’t know where to start!
I don’t know where to start!
I know! I’m cheating! But the thing is there are not enough hours in the day! (We all hate this universal fact, don’t we?) To avoid posting the longest Wrap-Up post later, here are what I have been doing these past two weeks!
Ps: Time Flies! Send help!
Sometimes I write. I don’t pretend to be good at it, I just want to put words on emotions to let them go. I feel tired today, and thinking of my friends presenting their thesis is part of the reason this Tuesday is a little harder than every other one. So for the first time, I am sharing something I wrote. This is not a review. Neither a post about anxiety and how I deal with it. I don’t even know what it is. But it is how I feel today.
I am not looking for sympathy or whatever, I just have a feeling sharing, putting it out of my mind and my laptop folder will help me move forward. Everything passes.
So here it is.
I was going for a much more original name for this post but then I decided it was awesome enough without the need of a sparkling title xD
With the end of an era… *dramatic music in the background* comes the assessment time we all dread. Or not. In fact, I am not dreading it at all. I have been waiting for this day.
Yes, 2017 things have happened this year.
A few days ago, I was sitting in Communication class, listening to my favorite teacher talking about how we use or are used by the media, and the discussion moved to communities, and bloggers, and the things we have in common that the Internet allows us to blabber about and be happy together. It made me think of how my love for books has invaded my life, on top of my studies, and how I react as a book lover to any given situation. Yep, my mind likes to keep busy and go in million ways. And I was angry and I missed blogging. Hence, this post!
If you’ve been around for a while, you already know it. If you are new, let me tell you Christmas time is not very welcome around here. Forced gatherings, fake smiles, compulsory gifts. I don’t care for any of it. Don’t talk to me about the Christmas spirit, I haven’t seen it in years! Plus, I don’t have a chimney. This totally ruins the thing.
You talk. More precisely, you talk to yourself. Then you think it is not enough. In order to benefit from its calming powers, this kind of ramblings must be shared. So, you talk to yourself through your blog. Isn’t what a blog is for? I have started to see Chocolate’n’Waffles as my private therapist. FREE therapist, something that you can’t find in real life these days! It calms me down when I’m restless, it keeps me busy when my mind is clouded with the wrong thoughts, it is the best escape door. And it is a good tool to let your emotions go and bother people with them, haha! This is a post you can skip if you don’t want to read about anxiety today, as I doubt I’ll be talking about books, unless it is to say I threw one at someone!
Let’s be honest, we need all the happiness we can find to face the news. Unless you’ve been hibernating in the middle of the Canadian forest, you know dark times are here and we need covers of little joys to keep warm as well as walls of happiness to keep the hope alive and well. So today, let’s do the Happiness Tag! I was not exactly tagged for this one but I stumbled upon in on lovely Beth’s blog. You should go read hers, as well as her unique and fantastic reviews and posts if you haven’t already. That would make you feel better about the world.
