November 7th, 2008
This week started off miserably. I happened to catch a cold over the weekend. The homework/class work doesn’t stop just because I ended up with a cold. I was fortunate enough to have a doctors appointment on Tuesday, and with some suggestions from the doc, I acquired one of the best cold medicines ever (Mucinex). So time to just suck it up, deal with it, and do the best I can.
One thing that has been absolutely fantastic is the weather. Can you believe it 70 degrees in November? I love it. That brings me to the real important issue for the week. It started with this darn cold, which made me feel blah! So I decided to take some of my homework and head over to Hawk Hollow Park.
Going there was one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Getting away from the school/academic environment was truly awesome. It was very peaceful and extremely productive. I did take my usual breaks, if some of you know 50 minutes of study, 10 or 15 minutes of a break. This system works well, and Tuesday and Wednesday were some of the most productive days of study since I started coming back to school.
Oh yea I’ve tried different places to study such as M.S.U. Library, some different coffee shops/restaurants but that time at the park was just what I needed, battling a cold and trying to find some motivation to keep plugging away at some of the necessary homework. As a matter of fact it was so nice I decided to go to another park on Friday. Which is were I’m at right now. Sharp Park, behind the Lansing Mall is also quite nice. It’s turned out to be a very positive week, even having this cold.
It seems fitting in closing to end this on a positive note. Thanks again for allowing me to share.
