Lately I’ve been operating at less than half of my capacity and anyone who has talked to me lately really knows this.
Although work has lightened up significantly (I finished sewing name tags in more than 50 articles of clothing in the past week and a half!), my online class is taking over my life, reading many chapters and watching endless lectures and then studying and taking the corresponding quizzes has been sucking the life out of me. On Sunday, I literally spent 6 hours doing schoolwork. I seriously admire single parents, I can barely handle my job, and one online course! I have such a great respect for those unsung heroes out there juggling so many tasks and people without any gratification.
Within two days of my sister leaving, my parents came up to stay with me as there was a death in my family recently and the funeral was here in queens. What is it about family? They’re these people who you are stuck with, who can endlessly annoy and love you all at once. I find it very fascinating especially since my extended family is scarily large for example my sister had about 200 wedding guest and well about 99% was only our family! Goes to the funeral was very sad and I’m not going to discuss that but I will say that my family is apparently super proud of m accomplishments since during and after the funeral festivities many of them (specifically my elders) kept congratulating and complimenting me. Wow!
Now that it’s officially July, I am itching to toss my books out the window and go PLAY. I guess years of summer=fun being ingrained in my brain and also the media’s endless glorification of summer have left me disappointed. Somehow I thought this summer would involve adventure and excitement especially since I live in one of the most amazing cities in the world!
However, I’m definitely not one to give up and I have a little list of summer things i’d like to do once my class is over starting with:
1. Enjoy the sun and go to the beach!
