A Lot Can Happen In A Year

Well, more than a year.

I don't think I can write about what's been happening the past year even if I wanted to. Let's just say 2016 ended pretty stressful, then this year started out okay, and then things kind of went downhill. And then it became okay again. Just like it always does in life.

It's September. I have not heard a peep of Christmas in Our Hearts or All I Want for Christmas Is You anywhere. I've been taking MA Psych in Southville for a year (yesterday was the anniversary haha), and I'm glad I'm still alive with good grades. But yeah, Advanced Statistics is huhubels. After this, I will be doing practicum already, plus compre. OMAYGAD, SAVE  ME.

But before you think I am drowning, I'm not. Not anymore, anyway. I'd like to think I'm in this state of...chillness, for lack of a better term. Yes, I am chill despite the workload. Sure, I bitch about how difficult things are sometimes (STAT MAYGAD) but I think I'm stressing about things that are worth stressing over. And there's always that ray of sunshine, in the form of friends, friends' babies, or leche flan.

And I am suddenly out of words. Should I promise to blog more often? Maybe not. But I might drop by from time to time.

I'm just gonna leave this really long quote from Meryl Streep right here.

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”
