Another month end, and another reflective post. I have to keep it short though, because I want to practice writing shorter posts & also because I have exams starting on August 8. I am so not excited for the exams. My weeks until august 15 will involve heavy studying, crying, praying for miracles & stress. As you can already tell, I just can’t wait to deal with all that rubbish that comes with the exam period. Time honestly flies so fast, it feels like just yesterday I was doing registration for this semester.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s get down to the bite-sized analysis of July.
I honestly didn’t really like July that much. There was just too much going on for me. For one, I got food poisoning for the first time in my life. I puked so much it felt like all that was left was for my intestines to come through my mouth – too vivid? I’m just trying to put you in my shoes. My body just really hated me this month. It was so horrible, one minute I was normal and then the other I was feeling like my body was shutting down. I also got a boil on my eye. I’m okay now, thank goodness.
Another thing was that this month I went through such stressful situations – some caused by my inability to say ‘no’ and also my annoying tendency to sacrifice my comfort for others.
On my worst day in particular, I went to print at a business center and the place I usually go to was closed. I then went to the neighbouring one, and I got the worst customer service ever. How can I come, you serve me but without even concluding serving me you start serving the next person? Did I look like I didn’t have places to be? After my mood was ruined, the rest of the day just fell apart due to other unfortunate things.
Life Report Card
Spiritual Growth 101 – F
Just this Sunday, the preaching really hit strongly. Jesus is coming very soon, and I am so scared because I don’t want to be unqualified. The best time to start a relationship with God is now. Ever think, how many people out of the whole world population would go to heaven if rapture happened right now? It’s a scary thought, because I picture billions not making it – me included. I don’t want to be part of them.
Academic Growth 101 – C
I don’t read much, except when there’s a test, exams or an assignment nearby. This is a bad habit.
Personal Growth 101 – C
Haven’t really dedicated time to self-nurturing and care. Skin care regime FAIL. That’s one reason I am looking forward to the holidays – so many books, so little time!
Healthy Living 101 – F
Fail everywhere, eating too much junk & not exercising. Thinking of the amount of times I’ve tried to start a 30-day ab challenge is just SAD! I also hate vegetables & barely eat fruits. I’m a walking time-bomb, I reckon.
Financial Smartness 101 – B
Did very well! Saved better than last month. I invested some of the money saved into something pretty cool too. Watch this space.
In conclusion, July kinda sucked. Then again, I’m alive and well & my basic needs are cared for. For that, I thank God. This year is running by so quick, and I don’t really feel like I’ve done enough. I hope that I can milk the best out of the remaining months! Time waits for nobody! Heres to more quality content & growth in all aspects of life!
