Doing better

So I watched this video by Luan Legacy today:

And I feel a bit dumb about my last post. Honestly, I was stressed. I still am a bit stressed and full of doubt about my ability to handle everything, but my friend Sayra shared this quote from Bertrand Russell with me that made me feel a little less crazy:
"The trouble with the world is that the stupid are so confident while the intelligent are full of doubt."
So yeah. I've been doing better. And by better I mean that I've turned in two scholarship apps and I feel pretty good about them. Also I did well on the tests that I was worrying about, so I pretty much did all of that worrying for nothing. So. New goal: for every time I catch myself worrying about something I'm going to make an origami crane.

Also, today I was close to a panic attack due to some issues, so I took off my shoes, cleared some space in the art room and started doing some basic yoga. On the nasty carpet. With about 5 other people in the room.

It felt glorious. Oh so glorious to physically relax my body in the middle of the day. I'm pretty sure people thought I was insane BUT OH WELLZ.

Tomorrow I get to wake up at 5:30am and participate at an academic meet (yeah!) and MAYBE get some homework done...
So. No more sad blogs... at least if I can help it.


  1. I remember seeing that video a few months ago, I think. I felt like he was life coach.

    I think I should start doing yoga.

    Yay for happy blogs!

  2. We all get sad sometimes and the world gets on top of us. I hope you get a scholarship, it'd be a huge help.

  3. Glad that yoga works for you. For me I just start pacing back and forth and I doubt that's as effective.
