Doom, I Hereby Challenge You!

The new academic year has begun, and I am still alive; that is about as far as my achievements of the past year go. However, a new year has begun and new opportunities are at my disposal. I don’t want to be a total failure anymore, so I’ve decided to get myself together. Therefor, a couple challenges.

Challenge #1: I will go to all classes. ALL OF THEM. And I won’t skip because “I don’t feel like it”, “I am tired”, “I feel confused”, “The voices are loud”, “I don’t want to face the world now” or any other excuse that I have employed in the past year. The only excuse allowed is being so sick that I can’t leave my bed without barfing or fainting.

Challenge #2: I will not postpone writing papers until a couple days before the deadline. This is important. I need to have my first drafts finished AT LEAST five days before the due date, so I have time to correct spelling, and do an emergency rewrite if necessary.

Challenge #3: I will not lie about my results, not even if they’re bad, and certainly not if they’re my own stupid fault. From this day forward, I will stop being a coward and look my doom in the face like the adult woman I am. No more deluding myself and no more lying about grades, I’m not in primary school anymore and it’s time I start acting like it.

I will keep you updated on my progress with weekly reports. And I hope, I truly hope and wish that you will scold me if I start treading the wrong path again. I’ll need it.

Other things you might find newsworthy; I have been diagnosed with (what most likely is) a fibroadenoma in my right breast; the thing has a diameter of 3 cm and I’m up for a biopsy this Thursday to confirm that it is in fact a fibroadenoma. Then I’ll get a second opinion from the radiologist who does the biopsy, to hear if they have to remove it yes or no. No worries though, it’s benign and even if they remove it my boob won’t become ugly. I suppose No.7 will be happy to hear that last bit especially… xD

And now the good news; I almost have everything I need to assemble the helmet of my cosplay project. All that is still missing is the enamel spray paint and gloss, and then I can begin crafting! I’m looking forward to it… I’m also thinking about taking up sewing as a hobby, so I can make the fabric costume parts myself as well. Oh yes, and I’m currently working on a Comprehensive Guide to Black Speech, with a thematic vocabulary list. In case anyone is interested?

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...

    Sounds like a great plan.

    Hey! How have you been? I haven’t been on WordPress lately but now I am and I was wondering how you were doing. Judging from this post things are going quite well? I hope you don’t challenge yourself too much, because then it’s harder to prevail (at least, that’s my experience). But your plans sound good and I hope everything’s going well! Best, Iris
