by Jesseca Ormond–Six months into 2018 and January is finally over. Brace yourself because It is finally over. The not so rhetorical question to ask is: How are your new year resolutions going?
I did not make any resolutions, because I have accepted that I will never keep them. However, I did make a mental note to attempt to be healthier. I mentally committed to go to bed at a reasonable time, wake up early, and go to the gym before classes.
There was one problem with this logic. The renewal of my Netflix account, which was on a hiatus over the December holidays. I stayed up all night binging shows. Consequently, I was unable to get up early enough to go to the gym. To be quite honest, I get up just in time to take the quickest shower ever. I simultaneously brush my teeth and make mental notes of which clean laundry pile my comfy velvet shirt is in.
I usually rush out of the house, leaving behind something that I need. I never return to get it, but always wish that I did. Moving on, why don’t I go to the gym after my classes? I don’t because I have work, assignments, activities and a lot of procrastination to do. Also, I have never been a ‘gym in the evening’ sort of person. It’s morning or nothing. So, it has been nothing.
Eating healthy is also pretty hard when you are legitimately a broke college student. Mac and cheese is a lot cheaper than Tilapia, broccoli and quinoa. Eating healthy is also pretty difficult when you eat out of boredom, and you are always bored. I should really get myself occupied, maybe go to the gym, but no, refer to above.
I am my own self-destruction; I know better but I do not do better.
