Lately, I’ve been finding that I’m spending a lot of time stressing out about not having enough time to prepare for my midterms or about finishing my assignments on time. Now that I have a job, I’m stressing about my work performance as well and whether my training is going at a good pace or if my manager thinks I am a slow learner. All these things in a addition to a little social drama and family drama on the side have been really stressing me out lately. I stress and overthink about all of these issues that seem so significant to me. In the end though, these issues are really nothing compared to everything else that is going in the world right now. Especially with everything happening right now in Iraq with the ISIS group and Obama sending troops back even though one of his campaign promises was to withdraw all troops from Iraq. I have been making sure to stay up to date on everything that’s happening just because it is so interesting, and also because for the first time ever because of social media we are actually able to really know what’s going on, on the other side. In the past we had to rely on whatever propaganda images the media decided to release. But now we can actually go on the youtube and twitter pages of the actual members of the ISIS group and see what they have to say directly from the front lines and then from that we can form our own opinions based solely on the facts we’ve seen for ourselves. I think this definitely changes things, it’s pretty interesting.
So the last time I posted a blog post was exactly 16 days ago! It’s been a while huh. I contemplated deleting this blog site altogether about a couple of weeks ago but then I decided against it. I think I am going to keep it for as long as possible just so that in the future I can go on here and read about the “good ole days”.
Just wanted to say a quick hello, and you let you all know that I’ll definitely be posting new blog posts. Just gotta get back into the swing of things.
*Side note: as of today I have decided to give up listening to music. Today is day one of no music, lets see how long this lasts.
