This is a Waste of Your Time

18 months... @ 07:17 pm

How many times have we all heard it? That simple phrase that someone utters in an attempt to cheer you up in a bad situation. "Well it will be over soon." In my particular case, the time frame of "soon" happens to be 18 months.

18 months. That doesn't sound too long. And I mean, who wouldn't go through 18 months of misery if it meant that they could be happy after? But am I going to be happy? Can someone as cynical as I am ever be happy? Could I be one of those people that bug me so much that find a cloud in every silver lining?

In school it is always a good thing to have a reason to reach for your goals. In the case here, the reason is to be able to get out of this backwoods state and away from this situation. Great. So I have established motivation. So that gives me a reason to attempt to do well in school and devote myself to studying and giving it my all. But at the same time, if I am miserable, am I capable of doing as well as if I were happier?

I obviously don't have the answers to any of these questions. But I am going to do everything I can to raise my spirits. I am going to shake things up and see if they settle into a better situation than I am in currently. And if that doesn't work?

Well I only have to be here another 18 months.
