Nothing is permanent in this wicked world. Not even our troubles.
I’m using my annoying lack of sleepiness to share one of my favourite ever quotes. I love collecting quotes (mainly, as with this one, from the start and end of episodes of Criminal Minds; lame I know) because words cheer me up when I need them to and they can also put things, like my life, into perspective.
So this is for anyone else struggling like I am with work and exams at the moment, and just anyone having a bit of hard time.
The wise words of Charles Chaplin.
This week I’ve decided that revision is the best thing ever. I could go on forever about how much I love spending hours in front of my desk, reading through boring powerpoint after boring powerpoint, leafing through my notes and my textbooks, desperately trying to cram as much information as possible into my head. I could write an epic poem about the joy that it brings me.
Let’s not forget the wonderful feeling I get praying to anyone and anything that I might remember enough to just scrape through my exams, isn’t that the best? I just wish I could do this all year long instead of these few weeks once a year; what I wouldn’t give to have this crushing feeling on my brain (and heart) all day, every day.
And where would I be without those fantastic tears? You know the ones, where you get to that point where it feels clear that this is the end and you won’t pass, you’ll definitely fail everything and have to drop out of uni (or college or school if we choose to go back in time, oh the joy) and go home to disappointed parents and have no future, oh no now you’ll never stop crying, such a great feeling! Ha!
This post was brought to you from somewhere deep inside my soul, a tiny place, the only place that isn’t destroyed through stress and quite possibly a place that won’t be around for much longer. We’ll see in about 4-5 days.
Sundays are usually boring for me, and I’ve had a slow weekend filled with work and not a lot of human contact. But then I remembered this quote and it made me smile.
What a comforting thought it is that the best day of your life may not have happened yet
I’m not sure who said it originally, but it made me feel better about getting through the next few weeks of revision and exams and then packing up my whole room with a years worth of stuff accumulated in it!
