Cold and Busy.


It’s been cold. It’s been really cold. I never want to leave my bed and sometimes I don’t. It’s also been busy, which is another reason to not leave my bed. So what do you do? When you’re so cold and busy that you don’t want to leave your bed? The answer to this question is one I’ve been seeking to find and here’s what I’ve come up with…

1.) If you are going to school somewhere that is so cold, dress warm and bring a blanket to class. I get teased, but honestly, it makes life (and the walk to class) so much more doable.

2.) Drink tea. It relaxes you. For me, it’s been great for both business and chilliness.

3.) Don’t hide from people. When I have so much to do, I normally hide to avoid losing focus. However, I’ve found that when I surround myself with people trying to accomplish the same task, I’m in a much better mood and get it done faster.

4.) Snacks. However, don’t just eat junk food. That works against you. I’ve been eating a lot of raw nuts and raisons.

5.) Get some perspective. Your paper is not the world. It won’t be an issue in a year. Do your best, but don’t forget reality.

6.) Take breaks. Sometimes you just need to watch “Say Yes to the Dress.” mmmhmm.

7.) Spend time with God. Honestly, whenever I’m in prayer, things are better. The past couple of days I’ve been stressing over a paper on Martin Luther and not really spending great time with God. This makes me grumpy. However, when I do spend time with God, I remember why I’m even at a Christian College. I want to glorify Him in all that I do.

Now, the end of my week draws near and it’s almost the weekend. (Thank the Lord!!!) And I’m looking forward to not being so busy, but still probably being cold. At least I won’t have to get out of bed.
