Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009. We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us. So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives. The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that. They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week. I'm determined to find something good in each day. Are you?
For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day. Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list! (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list. Thanks!)
~I'm happy because...
I picked up an extra shift next week!
I got $150 from selling my textbooks back yesterday and used some of that $ to buy Christmas presents!
I got another follower this week! Welcome!
A light on my car's dashboard came on and the service place fixed it for free! I feel like I've had them on speed dial lately.
With the extra credit assignment in Anthropology, it brought me up to an A so I won't be doing the optional final!
I should be ending the semester with 3 A's and a B! And an F in algebra but that doesn't affect my GPA since it isn't for credit, so yeah, we won't talk about that...
I tried to get around and visit everyone this week but it's been difficult. I'm working 6 days this week and, with classes and studying for finals in the mix, I'm exhausted! (If I missed you, I promise to make up for it soon.) No more classes after tomorrow but I'll have 3 finals and work next week. Monday is gonna be hella long but the paycheck will make it worth it. If I'm super careful and don't buy anything that isn't a necessity, I think I can swing the mortgage payment next month. :)
Last semester, I was really sad when school ended because I enjoyed it so much and wouldn't get to see my friends anymore. This semester, I made new friends and ran into some of the old ones here and there, but it doesn't feel as bittersweet. It went so quick that it's hard to believe it even happened. Guess time flies when you're having fun!
I was talking with a friend at work yesterday and saying that I don't understand why my major has to have so frickin' much math and when would I ever even use that shit out in the real world? She commented that it's not so much about the math, it's more about teaching you to use your brain to think logically. After contemplating that for awhile, I can see that... So now I have a new perspective. Still don't enjoy it but I understand why it's necessary now.
Looking forward to the Christmas break and being with the chi's. I've missed spending so much quality time with them.
