New CP Desktop Wallpaper!

This past week has been beyond strange.  A constant push and pull of emotions.

One minute, I'm feeling on top of the world.  Checking things off my list, writing emails like it's my job, answering questions, doing homework, studying for exams.  Everything in control.

The next minute, my brain has 428 different ideas simultaneously bouncing against my skull.  I can't think straight, I can't complete one darn thing, I'm homesick, annoyed, mad, and sad all at once.  I found myself crying because I didn't print Powerpoint slides in the right way.

I realized that I was just being dumb, and irrational.  Sure, I didn't print the slides correctly... but is it that big of a deal?  NO.

And then, just as quickly as those beyond overwhelming feelings sprung up on me... I get an incredibly nice email, a Facebook chat from a girl from high school saying even nicer things, two interviews (Her Campus and College Gloss), an easy quiz, etc.

Even though I had those terrible feelings.... and I felt like crying (well, I did cry) and not moving and stomping my feet and just throwing my hands in the air... I kept moving.

I kept working.

And then the good things started happening.

And then I felt better.

I've been repeating this phrase in my head over and over for the past month or so... especially when I feel "too tired" to study.  Too tired to go to practice.  Too tired to blog.  Too tired to write.  Too tired to do anything that I have to do.  It picks me up, reminds me of the end goal, and keeps me motivated.

I hope it does the same for you!!!


Instructions for downloading wallpaper:

Right click on the image.
Select "Open in new tab" (or window)
Right click the image again.
You can either save the image to your computer and then set it as a background. On macs, you should be able to right click and "save as desktop background."

PS For the record, I don't need to be locked in a psyche ward... I know my mom is going to read this and think I'm going crazy!  I promise I'm not!!!! hehe

  15. Oh my word, this is what I am going through right now! I have a thousand things that are due this coming week, and I have no motivation to do them. :0

    I hope the new wall-paper helps me get motivated. And getting College Prep tonight will hopefully help too. :D
