Motivation For Your Monday

“Halloweekend” started early last week in my History of Public Health Course. We had the opportunity to earn a few points by dressing up in public health themed costumes, and write a paper on whatever the subject of our costume was.

SPHL 401 Halloween 2014

Your girl transformed into Anton Van Leeuwenhoek, father of microbiology. Yes, that’s me in the brown, curly, ridiculous wig.

A class of students became doctors, nurses, scientists, illnesses and other people one probably would not even have known existed if not for this course. Cute, right? Days like these really make me appreciate being a student at USG. Days when you leave the class smiling. Know what I mean?

After class, the only thing that separated me from Halloween festivities was a dentist appointment, and a few hours of work.

One weekend later.

And now, Monday is here. No, this is not a post on how I used my time wisely to make sure I could have worry-free fun, or how manageable it is to balance academic life, and not-so academic life.

A typical lazy Sunday consisting of sweatpants, snacks, and studying turned into meeting new friends, exploring new places, and not getting any work done.

But, hey! It happens.

Yes, I’m not ashamed to admit “The Slog” has claimed yet another victim. The combination of post-midterm grogginess, and Halloweekend led me to campus quite early on a Monday morning.

So here I am, sitting in my favorite spot on campus, double-fisting a coffee in my left hand from the Green Grove Café, and a smoothie I made at home in my right hand. When I need some inspiration to get back on track, those are the key ingredients I need. So if you’re on the struggle bus with me, find some inspiration. It’s a new week! Get out there, and seize the day. Or at least salvage it. 😉
