Something’s Gotta Give

October 11, 2006

One down, one to go. Midterms, that is. I didn’t do well on the one yesterday. I don’t know for sure, but I just have that feeling that you get when you know you fucked up. I studied my ass off. Kevin can attest to that. So, I’m not exactly sure what went wrong.

Then again, my heart isn’t in it anymore. At least not how it used to be. This Anatomy class is the toughest of the first year vet tech classes, but it’s not that. Science just isn’t hard for me. I think I’m bored. I hate to admit that, because for once in my life I wish I could actually finish something, but I’m starting to get bored with this. Kevin said that it might just be that it’s taking so long.. and that might be. All I know is something’s gotta give. And soon.

She spoke about how people feel the need to hang onto projects they are bored of and/or push themselves to stick with something (ie a job or a relationship) they might not enjoy anymore for fear of looking like a failure. And she said something that made so much sense to me regarding that. She said, “You can complete a project by dropping it.
