I should totally be studying but I can’t. I’m so happy! I just spent the last two hours in the same room with Medgar Evers’ daughter and Malcolm X’s daughter among others! I can’t even begin to describe the feeling that I feel right now. My words can’t express it! It’s a mixture of revitalization of my energy and pure euphoria.
This panel included five amazing women and their take on the needs for American advancement when it comes to race and race relations as well as the legacies of their fathers and themselves. This is exactly what I needed.
I was warned by quite a few of the second years from last year that this part of the year is probably the worst. It’s cold, it’s snowy, it’s not pleasant, and then on top of all of that we have three very difficult classes back to back. I was told that if not careful that I would burn out. I have to say I haven’t gotten there yet but I am finding it very difficult to stay motivated and to stay focused. Adding in the winter gloominess from waking up in the dark and missing most daylight while studying, its easy to fall into a rut. Tonight was an amazing opportunity for me to not only allow myself to recharge, but to refocus and to be ready for the exams that are coming.
I guess I can go study now, huh?
