76. Update

Dear Readers,

Today is the November 5th (Tuesday). After I recovered from my illness and went back to college, I had a mountain of work pending for me, with back to back exams. I was so stressed that I almost fell ill again. I had recurring fever every now and then, as well.

I eventually managed to write all my exams and complete all my assignments on time. I did not write most of those papers as well as I wanted to. One paper in particular, I wrote horribly. But I am done. Catching up and getting a decent internal overall can be focused during my second internal exams, which are likely to be conducted post mid-November.

I had a considerably non-hectic weekend. I went out on Saturday for lunch and games. I went for a walk on Sunday evening after so long. I needed to get back to exercising everyday. I felt so good after the walk yesterday. My appetite drastically increased.

A lot things on my to-do list are pending, but I have started slowly working my way back to normalcy and my healthy & fully functioning self. I hope I don’t fall ill again.

Short term goals would be to eat healthy, study everyday, finish assignments long before the due date, avoiding stress and completing every other task on my daily to-do list that I have made.

Long term goal would be a goal that I don’t want to disclose yet because there are a lot of hurdles and issues related to that. But I would and have to do everything in my power to make it happen. I don’t want to continue something just because I have to. I really hope it happens. From today, I will devote a few hours of the week to this particular long term goal.

I also want to monetise my blog. I’m not really sure about the hows and the whats. So, I want to read up more on that and take the next step. If anyone has any tips that I could use or information that will be beneficial to me, based on your experience of having monetised your blog, I would be extremely grateful if you shared it with me either in the comment section below or via email (realisticbeginner98@gmail.com).

Apart from all this, I don’t really know what else is up. I feel like I’m just dragging my way through life and I am not doing anything worthwhile. Maybe it’s because of where I am. Don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t mean I am not making the best use of my time here, because I am. And I hope it doesn’t come off as another example of ‘the grass on the other side is always greener’. So I am not really thinking about this aspect.

I also feel like I’ve been looking at life negatively my entire life. The people that are currently in my life are telling me or rather showing me to not be so negative. It is going to take some time, not going to lie. I have tuned my self, due to various experiences, to expect the worst out come, the worst in people and the worst scenario. So it is going to take some time to not look at that side and think a little more positively. I have lost quite a few relationships because of this point of view.

How have you all been doing? What have you all been up to? I’m trying to get regular with my blogging and I’m getting there. So, forgive me when I respond to your comments a little late. I shall find some time this week to do just that!

What did you think about this blog? Please let me know in the comment section below. Hope you all have a great week ahead. Happy Monday!

Regards,
Realistic Beginner.

  1. You’ve got this, Realistic. I am not much of a commenter (ever lol), but it sounds like you really want to make meaningful and positive changes in your life. Bravo, my friend. The Mind is GREAT and horrible, but it depends on what you feed it to attain either of those two aspects. Start with something small maybe. Wake up each day and smile and be grateful that this is another day for you to continue forward. From there maybe add an positive affirmation. I honestly had no idea what I was doing almost seven years ago when I changed my mental programming. I allowed it to come in and maybe the timing was right. It started with the Optimist Creed by Christian D. Larson. I recited that three times a day, morning, noon, and night. After about three months, I realized something. My universe was drastically changing around me and I became the Optimist where for the previous years of life I was a pessimist. Everything started “going my way” naturally and seemingly without reason. The only thing that changed was the way I Thought. And changing the way I thought changed the way I Felt. Apologies! I could write a book from here lol. You do not have to post this. I usually like to keep on a low blog radar. So if you just read it and delete it, then that would be enough. Take care and thank you for liking my Speed Bumps haha. The Universe is so amazing 😀

  2. Reading your blog post brought back memories. Having survived that hurdle (college life and friends), the gift I want to share is this: focus on your own life and let others do the same; follow your heart
    and stray in the present moment.
