Today is the latter.
It feels like ages since I have just sat down and wrote out my thoughts. I keep trying to figure out what to write but I feel like anything I say won't be good enough. So instead of trying to follow some sort of standard, I'm going to write whatever I want. I hope this is good.
On Monday, I went to Mindful Moments [for the first time]. Mindful Moments is a 30 minute meditation session that my uni holds on Monday's. I didn't know what to expect, as I've never practiced meditation before. It turned out to be one of the best parts of my week. I really enjoyed [although I don't think I did a good job at it] trying to focus on one thing instead of being distracted by the world around me. To be completely honest, it was hard to focus my attention and I even feel asleep for a few minutes, but it was great to try something new. I've decided to go every week.
Also, on Monday, another highlight occurred. I had to the chance to listen to Anderson Cooper speak at my school. If you follow me on Twitter, you probably noticed all of the tweets I tweeted during his talk. I plan on making a post with the video and audio that I took, so I will include those tweets in that post. However, you can check my Twitter page because currently, they are not that hard to find.
On Tuesday, I don't think anything exciting happened. I don't have anything in my calendar, so I probably just did homework and watched a few shows.
On Wednesday, I was able to try sushi for the first time with two of my classmates from my PR class. We've been having lunch every Wednesday and it's been a great joy to my week. Our lunches are usually filled with great food, conversation and laughter. I hope that we continue them throughout the semester.
Today, Thursday, nothing interesting has happened so far. Oh! I got my tickets to see Dr. Sanjay Gupta speak in March. Woot! I am currently sitting outside of my next class soaking up the sunshine and thanking God for this beautiful weather. I hope that it continues throughout the weekend. Spring, please hurry.
Tomorrow, Friday, I'm not sure will happen besides class, but on Saturday I will be attending the Black Leadership Institute at my uni. I'm super excited about it. That's the great thing about university - you have the chance to do so many different things [most of them for free, thankfully!] that expand you thoughts and broaden your horizons.
I remember awhile back [on Tumblr, I believe], I posted about how one of my English teachers mentioned that writing is a muscle and that you have to exercise it often. I haven't been doing that lately, so I am going to try to write something everyday. Either on Tumblr or in a journal, but I have to start writing. I feel like what little skills I had left are declining and it is very frustrating.
Well, I hope you all have a lovely day! I'm off to my last class [thank the Lord]!
