March 10, 2006 at 5:44 PMOk. Midterms are done, spring break is here. :-D I have nothing to do over spring break except learn the Conus cadenza and study a couple of chess strategy books a friend lent me...but the weird thing is, I don't know how to operate without imminent deadlines etc. hanging over my head. Something seems so wrong. hmm. A life without stress and frantically running around seems so...empty. Maybe a nap would help things...
Here are some more quotes...the third one dosen't describe me, but I thought you might get a kick out of it. I hope it dosen't describe you.
“Brain cells create ideas. Stress kills brain cells. Stress is not a good idea.”
“A women under stress is not immediately concerned with finding solutions to her problems but rather seeks relief by expressing herself and being understood.”
“Stress: The confusion created when one's mind overrides the body's basic desire to choke the living daylights out of some jerk who desperately deserves it”
“I asked God for strength that I might achieve. I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things. I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy. I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men. I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. I was given life that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among all men, most richly blessed.”
That last quote is beautiful. I wish I could see things that way sometimes...
