I pray that everyone be encouraged. I feel like I’ve been negative lately (online and in real life) and I just want to send some good vibes your way. I hope I haven’t scared anyone off from grad school lol. I’m sure it will be worth it in the end, but I’m struggling with a lot of emotional stuff (career-related and some more personal stuff) with just makes everything 10 times harder. So as I pray for you, I pray for myself.
Codecademy is not that helpful to me. I’d rather have a human explain it to me because it doesn’t tell me what I’m doing wrong. It just says that something is wrong. And when I’m just learning something, I need to know specifically what I’m doing wrong.
Some phrased it correctly in the forum - I got the right answer. That doesn’t mean I understand it.
I’ve been seeing 1 am a little too often and leaving my pillow a little too early in the morning. And I hope God hears me when I drift off to sleep in the middle of my prayers. I know He knows my heart, that He knows our prayers even before we say them but I feel bad for breaking off our conversations.
BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn't been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.
over coffee with my mom this morning: “sometimes we hesitate to invite people into our life because we feel like our space isn’t good enough yet. things are a little messy, or our place settings don’t match, or our situation isn’t quite what we want it to be. don’t let that stop you. invite people in anyway.”
Something strange happened today. I noticed I was mimicking someone’s body stance like the psychological thing that has been floating around Tumblr talks about. And when I noticed it, I immediately changed my stance and thought about how I got there in the first place (I’m just now wondering if he was mimicking me, but probably not).
This happened with two guys (the psychological thing is linked to attraction). I know for the second guy I definitely mimicked him because he had his hand by his face and chin and I noticed that I was touching my chin and had my hand near my mouth. I immediately moved my hand when I realized this.
It was so weird. My realizations made me feel wrong/bad. Like I wasn’t supposed to notice it or I shouldn’t be mimicking people lol.
Has this happened to you?
P.S. For the inquiring minds, one of the guys was one of the distractingly handsome men that I’ve mentioned before. And in retrospect, I’m not too surprised about mimicking him, but for the other guy, that was a shock.
I left the tea steeping too long and I just dumped sugar in and rushed back to my work so it wasn’t as relaxing as anticipated. This school stuff…this grad school stuff…I tried to get ahead. I tried not to wait until the last minute. But yet, here we are again. And I have a really awful research proposal that I’m going to to turn in because I’m also supposed to read 100 pages (for the same class). By some miracle, there’s no reading for any other class.
I like sleep a lot more than I like class work, so please pray that I get some more work done and that I’ll figure out this time management crap to get my life together.
I heard this one bookstore around here has a Tardis in it (I hope I heard has and not had). I should probably go investigate that. I missed an opportunity to take a picture with a Tardis in New Orleans (it was in front of a bar in Algiers Point. I’ll never forget it lol We drove past in multiple times but we were always in a rush so I never asked to stop).
Maybe I can start a Tardises Around the World Photo Collection. Or just get back to my homework.
