New Year’s Update

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 8:33 pm

DadB’s latest post posed an interesting question:  if you made a New Year’s Resolution, how is it going?  I realized I haven’t posted in a bit, so I decided to answer the prompt here.

My resolution was to better control the things I can, and to try not to worry so much about the things I can’t.  I think it’s going pretty well so far.

The “things I can control” category: I’ve improved my diet and I’m working on getting back to regular exercise.  My horrible cholesterol actually dropped quite a bit to only moderately bad.  That might have more to do with the fact that I was sick for two weeks and not eating much of anything before the blood test, but I’m doing my best to keep it low.  My study habits, alas, still leave much to be desired.  Spring Break is next week for me, and I plan to spend the majority of it getting caught up in Constitutional Law (for my midterm on the 23rd).

The “things I can’t control” category is working out rather well, actually.  If I end up in a stressful situation that I can’t do anything to change, I remind myself of the fact and it seems to help me relax.

One other thing – Thursday through Sunday of next week, I will be in the Bay Area, to compete for academic glory in moot court.  Wish me luck!
