Hey Guys! Another week by, and I can’t believe midterms are next week. It seems like the more time I spend at Luther the faster it passes by. However even though I get to go home in about a week I recently learned some things about myself this week.
I have had a lot of homework, studying, and tests over these past couple weeks and it has been making me very stressed out and tired. All week I have been feeling really overwhelmed and tired throughout the day. It was not until yesterday that I finally realized that sometimes it’s ok to just let everything go and take a break, and that’s exactly what I did. I got back from dinner last night and completely passed out. I slept from 7:30 PM until 7am that next morning. When I woke up I felt completely rested and was ready to have a great Friday leading me into the weekend. I realize that I need to sometimes take time for myself and just have a little fun. All of the studying and constantly being busy overwhelmed my brain and body and I just broke down. I am surprised that I did not realize this until now, but I am glad I figured it out. So now I think every couple of days I am going to take sometime to myself, and do something that I want to do like watch a movie or a TV show.
This weekend is homecoming weekend and there is a ton of stuff going on around campus. I have been seeing a lot of alumni back in Decorah and I have a feeling this is going to be a great weekend full of NORSE PRIDE. I hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend. Peace, Mario
