unhappy things

June 3, 2011

what goes up . . .
apparently, my reward for writing yesterday’s upbeat post was a series of several not-so-gentle reminders that — well, $#!% happens.

$#!% like a minor car accident [thank goodness, no one hurt!!! just cars, and pretty soon our bank account]. $#!% like yet another disappointment from first response, which i really encourage you to buy stock in [i shudder to think of the hundreds of dollars i have poured into these things]. $#!% like feeling really out of control and just NOT together at work, with both clinical demands and research issues [and presentations galore] piled up seemingly all at once.

ANYWAY. i am trying to treat these events as lessons. and the major lesson which sticks out to me is one of patience.

the truth is: i don’t have much of it. not in my car, and not with my uterus. and i KNOW this! it’s not that i have not tried to slow down and stop hurrying/rushing/wishing; it’s just that it is a very hard habit to break.

but i’ll keep trying.

retreat report
after arriving home from the slightly traumatizing post-work events yesterday, i did manage to hit my mat for some yoga therapy à la dave farmar. if you’d like to catch up on some of the previous retreat posts, they’re all compiled here.

collection of retreat posts so far:

week 1: inside/out
day 1: ideal day + implementing one element
day 2: sleep
day 3: nutrition
day 4: movement
day 5: self-compassion/body image

    🙁 Sorry. I can relate a lot; with me it’s that I have way too many negative thoughts and don’t appreciate all that I have as much as I should, constantly.
    This move is making me appreciate just how much NJ/NY held for me, and how I deemed it all not enough. It’s been hard to come to terms with, but also a completely eye-opening experience and I hope it’ll be for the better.
    Chapel Hill will hold a TON for me as well, namely greener areas, farmer’s markets, nicer people (I made the rank list when I was on a team that was blatantly MEAN to me), a calmer lifestyle, a really really good program, etc. So, I mean, there is no perfect road to take, I guess, even if one would seem far more preferable especially when it wasn’t totally your choice to have made.
    I hope things pick up!
    Also, leo’s post today was dead-on perfect!!

    Also, as for CH, I don’t think my response went through since it was via my phone. I am gonna live in Alta Springs; I still haven’t seen it but it seems like a safe and still affordable option with a few more bus options, though still isolated. I’ll see how it goes and I’ll explore the area a bit in the next year. Carrboro looks promising (though I haven’t been there at all).

    Sorry about the BFN. I know how it feels when they just keep on coming 🙁 i’d suggest you buy internet cheapies instead of FR – much easier on the bank account! ;0

    There is a separate table of contents made which includes all the tables which are included in the thesis. These tables are sometimes included concurrently with the text or at the end of the thesis.
