Losing it

Submitted by jean-paul on Sun, 08/24/2014 - 13:49

I really wish that I could figure out a way to stop losing stuff. First my ereader, which is still missing, and now I've lost an audio patch cable that i use all of the time. I searched for hours for the former, and an hour today for the latter, but I had no luck. It isn't like i have milions of places for either of them to be, and i didnt lose either of them with their accessories. I still have my ebook reader case, so its not like it fell from my bag. I also didnt lose my portable speaker or its power supply, so WTF, WORLD? WTF

Oops! I got busy and forgot to write my daily gratutudes. I could go back and post-date some, but I'd rather do some reading for this Saturday's exam.

  1. I am grateful that my extra word in German has translated into a 95% on the verbal component of my mid-term examination.
  2. I am grateful for the time that the internet saves me during research and extra course work. Especially for foreign languages, the internet gives access  to amazing resources.
  3. I am grateful for the freedom to say nearly whatever I like, without fear of persecution. Mostly.

Am I allowed to reapeat any gratutudes? Ever? What if I'm super grateful? I'm not sure how long I can think of original gratutudes, but we'll see!

In class this evening, my professor who by day is a clinical child-psychologist re-challenged us to try the 3 gratitudes method of increasing positive affect. I sort of scoffed at the idea on the inside, I think because of the [long pause] on reflection I don't know why.

At the end of that same class, I made reference to #neknomination and how I would like to see it turned around in to a force for good. Apparently I'm a bit disconnected because this has already been done and redone as, among other things, #RAKnomination.

Here are the three things that I'm grateful for today!

  1. The opportunity to go to school every day.
  2. That it's almost spring, and I will be able to resume gardening soon!
  3. That tomorrow's exam isn't until the afternoon. I don't like morning exams.

That's all for the day! I hope you enjoy reading my gratitudes, and are inspired to write some of your own.

Taking notes is an important part of school life, especially in college and university where the content is often presented at a faster pace than in earlier levels.
