Positivity

I decided to not get disgusted much when I am informed that classes and duties are suspended. That was how I felt when I received a text message from our clinical coordinator that we will not have duty (and classes) on Monday. That is usually the case after the foundation day. The school’s foundation day ended yesterday, with the announcement of who won the campus king and queen. Our candidate (College of Nursing) did not win the title; in fact, she was not even a runner-up. But she is one of my students who are intelligent and diligent. Suspension of duty and classes is what we expect but we still have to be informed by any of the higher-ups in the college of nursing. Since I am channeling my reactions to positivity, I will just think of Monday as an additional rest day (even though we had no duty since Thursday and Friday), a day to watch the latest television fantasy series and my other favorite afternoon series. Of course when I sit down, I am doing my ailing heart a favor--- relief from stress and anxiety. What positivity can you share?

I slept very well today. This is a first for weeks now. The fault is coming from me because I am watching too much of the laptop screen.

don't you give your eyes some rest? it is nice to stare at something green when your eyes are tired of seeing your laptop screen.

@ridingbet I do. I don't look at any screen from 9am till 3pm. That's 6 hours or more rest.

@mydanods but i think there is a contradiction with your statement. you said: ---"The fault is coming from me because I am watching too much of the laptop screen." and then:"I don't look at any screen from 9am till 3pm. That's 6 hours or more rest." so, the 18 hours, you stare at your laptop screen? why TOO MUCH?

They're not permanently suspended, right? Just temporarily?

@ridingbet For a moment I was concerned that you were saying the entire program was canceled! At least a day off will be nice.

When I have no tasks for the day, it's time for me to take some rest, to clean my garden or to go to the city to pay my bills, buy groceries, or just take the time to unwind. =)

There is always something good in the day. It is just a matter of finding it.

right on that. sometimes it is just hidden behind something else. but having a sister who is sometimes cranky, i think i have to condition myself in to ignoring her complaints FOR the day.

I always try to see the bright side of things. It snowed, I cannot go out, it was the good occasion to spend time cleaning the house.

yes, i think it is good to clean your house because it is not hot. it is cold outside. my brother, when it is his off day, would watch movies while lying in bed and eating snacks he brought from home.

@ridingbet I wanted to wash all the floors, better to do this when it is still cold outside. It's a hard work.

@ridingbet Your brother should watch his snacks habit. He's using it to substitute for something.

@dya80dya really? but there are months where you expect the cold to come back? like winter in December and summer in June? here, the climate is erratic. i thought it is already summer because it is March now; alas, it is still cold

I made a decision not to go back to the music class. I cannot be around the kind of Ethics that I believe the professor has. So I made a decision not to go. It's sort of breaks my heart, because I expected it to be a lot different. But I know that I cannot fight something that is a difference in how we see life. Since I'm not taking it for a grade, it doesn't matter whether I'm there or not. And, I didn't get a call wondering where I've been, which means he doesn't care, nor should he. So, letting that go makes me feel less stressed.

i sympathize with how you feel, my friend. i wonder why your professor was not asking you how you were. i presume he gets paid, right? he is a professor so he should be receiving something from the school.

@ridingbet we just had a different way of looking at how things need to be taught. I didn't agree with some of the things that he said in front of the young students. Totally inappropriate. But not mine to say.

yes, and also being 'blind, deaf, and mute' to everything the user you seem to dislike, does. that is positivity

It's surely great you'll be able to rest some more. I bet the students are even more positive about that!

oh, yes. i agree with you a hundred percent. the students really need the rest because last week was an extremely exhausting and hard-action-filled week.
