Today, I take the #100HAPPYDAYS challenge (Day 1)…

Today, I join the #100HAPPYDAYS challenge (click here to check out their website). We all have our ups and downs, we all have busy days. We all have meetings to attend, pets/plants/friends/family/lovers to tend to, deadlines to meet, hobbies to pursue, books/movies/tvshows to watch, and so forth. However, I felt this challenge would be perfect to allow me to take a few minutes out of my day everyday to realize what makes me happy.

According to the website, you can use instagram/facebook/twitter to document the 100 days or you can email your photos to them to keep anonymity. I chose the instagram option and you can follow @todaycommai, however, I have decided to all document these next 100 days via our blog. I’m starting my challenge today, February 27, 2014 and will (hopefully) successfully complete it on June 7, 2014. In addition, you supposedly will receive a booklet documenting the 100 days of happiness. Have you already joined the challenge? Will you join the challenge? What makes you happy? 🙂

Friday Night’s Alright (For Studying)

Week 2 of year 2 is done; it feels like I’m in the trenches of study war. There’s so much to keep track of, to read and memorize, that it’s hard to make time for other things, and impossible for me to do it without feeling guilty. I’ve got to improve my work-life balance skills.

On Thursday, we had our first 2 physiology quizzes of the semester. Those will be a weekly event to keep us on top of the material, but it also makes it hard to prioritize the other subjects — except when they have midterms! It’s enough to drive me cray cray, and did for a few days, but I’m resolved to remember that I’m doing what I want in a place that feels like home, and that happiness is not to be overlooked!

Today, I walked home with Bianca (who gives a much more thorough summary of our hectic days on her blog) from biochemistry lecture, and that was a welcome reminder that I’m not in the trenches alone.  Onwards!

Before that, though, I must wish an early and very happy birthday to our one and only Jarkie! 

That's us celebrating her birthday at Alivia's in Durham last year :)
