Seasonal Blahs

August 23, 2006

I really hate this time of year. Feelings. Pfft. Freaking hate those things sometimes. They can be such a bummer. Does everyone else have an entire month that just drudges up all sorts of crappy memories? Or is it just me?

I guess if I’m alone in this, I can always resort to painting sad clown pictures and writing bad, emo poetry. Eh, at least I head back to school tomorrow. I’ll be nice to bury myself in my studies again and keep working towards my veterinary technician degree and consequently my vet tech registration in the state of California.

:-/ :w00t: and stuff.

I have a knack for writing bad, emotional poetry too, so you’re not alone! Have fun with the studies!

August has been my favorite month ever since I was in grade school. That’s when the water is the warmest at the beach, and nature is just starting to wind down from being in full bloom. August was when I went to Boston for the first time, in 2000. Last August was when I went to Camp Casey. I have always loved the warmth of August. I have always had great memories of August.

That is, until this August… when I discovered the true meaning of betrayal from two people I trusted implicitly – that was August 4th and I’ll never forget that day… And this year, the warmth of August has been horribly oppressive because of menopausal heat flashes… And I got the worst performance review I’ve ever received in my 30 years of working, even though I worked harder than I ever have…

But you know what? I confronted the betrayal, and discovered that I am stronger and more courageous than I thought I was. I turned it around and taught myself and others the meaning of unconditional love, cooperation, and mutual understanding. I know the hot flashes will eventually go away… And the bad performance review is causing some positive changes at my job… And August is not even over yet. And I’m really trying hard to fill up the remaining days with lots of fun things.

I don’t know which memories I’ll dredge up next August – but I think I’ll probably choose to remember the good stuff. :-)

I love you,
Mom
