Freak out time

I like to refer to this point in the semester as ‘freak out time’.  What that means (at least for me) is that during mid-semester, after you find out that you didn’t do so hot on your first exams, you start questioning everything you’re doing in life.

It all started with the 80 percent I got on my JRN108 test, followed by the 78 percent on my ISS test, then the fact that JRN300 is taking over my life, and ending with my 1.5 (whatever percent that is) on my economics test.

So I’m pretty much thinking to myself, ‘you suck at life’.  Although with economics it isn’t so bad b/c the way my teacher does it… if you do better on the 2nd exam (which really shouldn’t be too hard for me) it replaces the 1st exam grade.

   Anyways, back to my original point of when things go wrong academically, you start freaking out, or at least seriously thinking about, other areas of your life as well. 

  This middle of the semester freak out includes:

  • Getting mad at/about the dumbest things, or blowing them way out of proportion.
  •  Just not feeling like doing any more work, because all I can think about is spring break.
  • Wondering/worrying about the random things (especially when it comes to the opposite sex) like ‘does he like me?’, ‘I seriously need to socialize more’, ‘why am I so awkward?’, ‘did I seriously just say that?’, ‘he probably has like 10 girls that want him right now, why am I even trying?’, etc. etc.
  • The fact that I haven’t been excercising, other than walking to class and the daily thumb work out of pushing buttons on the remote.  Also, I haven’t been eating right except for the occassional salad, with french fries on the side of course.

ugh, seriously… spring break, I need you. now.

I guess it’s time to push the pedal to the floor as they say… and maybe try some actual studying for other classes besides my JRN300 class? hmmmm… I’ll let you know how it goes.

Every holiday is an awkward holiday for single people

…it’s not just Valentine’s Day that single people loathe, it’s every holiday.  Don’t you think that there is a reason that Thanksgiving is the day that most drunk driving accidents occur?  (I’ll give you a hint: People drink when they become depressed/sad.  Single people become depressed/sad on holidays because they don’t have a significant other to share it with, and they have to watch all of the people that do.)

 As much as it sucks seeing images of love everywhere you look on Valentine’s Day, I personally think that Christmas or New Years eve are the most lonely holidays for single people.  Think about it: Most people have days off of work/school for X-mas and New Years, so if they don’t have someone special to hang out with, it can get lonely.  I mean yes, on Christmas you do spend time with your family, but what about after those few hours you spend caroling and eating ham?  You just go home and watch less than par television. 

Then there’s New Year’s Eve.  I don’t think that one needs much explanation.  It’s like when you were in middle school and everybody went to the dances in the gym.  Everyone stood around looking at each other until a slow song came and everyone awkwardly walked to the middle to find someone to dance with, and you were the only one who wasn’t dancing with anyone.  Translation: When you are at a NYE party with a bunch of couples (the dance)… it just sucks when midnight (the slow song) hits.

Although there is one sweet thing about being single during holidays… saving time and money!
