My Life at PIT – No Rest for the Weary

HeadacheThis week has been, well, its hasn’t been that great. I’ve been conjuring up this excruciating headache that feels like my brain is actually spinning around in circles like a merry-go-round, and after being seen by my doctor I was told I was actually sick. It came to me as a shock because usually I know when I’m sick or getting sick. I guess last week my throat was hurting me, and I did take some time off, but I didn’t know it was to the extent that the doctor would have to prescribe me with antibiotics.

It was all a bit confusing. And missing school is not okay with me because I am missing valuable information in my classes. I am also missing out on working and making money that I desperately need  for a million purposes. Since this is  my first semester back to school, I have found myself fighting battles trying to get up and to remember why I’m going to school. If it were that easy to sleep in and have a perfect life, I don’t think anyone would be happy to be honest. You’ve got to go through tough decisions and life lessons to really become the person that you are today. If everything was perfect I believe that everyone would be the same, and to me that’s boring.

So, I have to constantly remind myself that I am working my way to the top, or at least I hope I get there, and to ask for help when I need it. That was always one of my flaws, never asking for help and I think that’s why I did struggle so much through my high school years. I have been thrown into so many different situations where at some point it did get the best of me, but learning from that and other lessons I know what I need to do in order to succeed. Although it may be tough going to school with a cold and having a hard time trying to focus on my school work with this headache, I know it will all be worth it in the end.

Nothing is easy in this world, and if its easy, its not worth it.
