Things I did in the last 11 weeks. Mostly-ish.

So as of Friday (three days ago), my second quarter at Drexel came to an end. And Spring Break started.
Of course given that this is me, I’m not going anywhere for Spring Break. I am taking extended ME time.
But my plans for this staycation (urgh can’t believe I just used that word) isn’t the topic of this post. This post is concerned with what I did during this quarter.

The quarter started out on a low note. Fresh from my winter break back home, I was feeling homesick (again) and down in the dumps and for the first week or so, I circled between going to class, depressively watching House and missing all the people back home.
But then salvation knocked on the door in the form of 30 Rock (I know it’s old but frankly, it was so good) and a few weekend parties so flash forward several seasons of aforementioned TV show and a couple of wild nights, I was as right as rain. (Why is that an expression by the way)

Now that I was no longer homesick, I threw myself into work but sadly reality caught up and I basically ended up ignoring Math and Anthropology which will sadly reflect in my grades at the end of the quarter. I’ve never been Math’s greatest supporter and Anthropology was such a difficult blip on my schedule and its class times didn’t help. It was a 3 hour class, once a week from 6.30 to 9.30 PM on Tuesdays. But no excuses, I let those classes slip by me. It’s all my fault.

Honestly speaking, my second quarter here hasn’t really been all that special actually. Missing all the shiny, jangly newness of things from my first quarter, a lot of things got tired really fast, including parties so I just spent most weekends in my room, in my bed Netflixing the night away. ‘Course I did end up going out once in a while but not as much.

Overall? It was alright. Sure I may have come inches close to failing two of my classes (I may have for all I know, jury’s still out as of 21st of March 2016) but I ended the quarter as best as I good: Standing up straight, enthusiastically flipping off all my misgivings about my future and insecurities. Yep, for reasons that shall remain murky on this blog (I can’t write about everything here. Some things are meant to never see the light of day, or computer screens), I found a great whopping dollop of confidence and self-awareness (the good kind, not the wishy-washy insecure type) which I am very happy about. I also managed to write more on my other blog (which you will find here) and also managed to make some actual decisions about my future at Drexel and my career.

On a bad note, my reading slump is still very much a slump. I’m hoping that the remaining seven days of Spring Break will help me change that. But I am definitely, very slowly, getting my shit together. Now if only I could survive without Netflix.

Me everytime my brain decided to not function during exams last week.
