Mid-Semester Slump and Trying to Jump Over It

It’s that time of year again. I can’t get up at 6am anymore. I have to drag myself to the gym. I’m eating late, and drinking less water. And my grades are showing this slump. Most definitely, the new job I got (and quit) in the span of 5 weeks had something to do with it, but it was something more.

It was me not putting in 100% every day, each day. You see, I’m only smart because I work hard. If I don’t work hard, then I fall behind my classmates fast. As in, I don’t go to one class and I’m back up for a week. So having super cramps, not sleeping regularly spending hours on my phone doing nothing because I’m stressed isn’t going to help me.

Sure, I’m doing the bare minimum, but when did doing that get me anywhere? I don’t want to be average. And the only way I know how to be extraordinary is to work hard and keep my head up.

Trip. Allow yourself to trip. Enjoy the fall. Rest on the pavement for a moment, but only a moment.

Get up, move on.
