Being Productive is Hard
I have lost all motivation to do anything. This is bad because I have so much to do this week. I haven’t even started my reading for German, and I’m sure there’s a ton to do. I have been watching a lot of 30 Rock. I’m on Season 2 right now. I’ve started saying blerg. I love Liz Lemon. AKA: Lesbian Yellow Sour Fruit.
Where Did My Motivation Go?
I am having trouble getting motivated. This is bad because I have a lot to do in the coming week. I need to prioritize and slog through my To-Do list. I need to stay on task tonight for sure. I actually forgot to read one of the books for my class today. Not a good start to the week.

popculture-and-i: fridha: In exactly one week, I’ll be a year older. 23 years old. Yuck. Oh shush you, next year I turn 25. TWENTYFIVE. I can so far blame my not having accomplished much on being so young, haha. But then! Then I’ll officially be closer to 30 than 20 for every day that passes. Nuts. Although I have to turn 24 this summer first, of course, haha. I turn 25 in December....
In your previous profile picture, you looked like my favorite German actress, Martina Gedeck. Just thought you should know. Yours, Jessica

Wow do I feel a lot better than I did yesterday and Monday. I, to use a common metaphor, was in a black hole of depression. And then I got really angry and said, “Fuck this. I have so much to be happy about. I have nothing to be afraid of. Not here. Don’t be afraid to fail. You’re not going to.” I’m not going to be afraid of missing MSU anymore if I get a great aid...

I am fucking better than this.
Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn. My God, do you learn.– C.S. Lewis (via psychotherapy)
Seit viele Stunden hielte ich den Messer in der rechten Hand fest. So wie ein Teddybär oder ein Sicherheitsblankett. Ich wollte nichts damit machen. Ich wollte nur die Kontrolle haben. Auf jeden Fall ist der Messer total beschissen. Vergiss es. Ich habe mich selbst nochmal verloren. Ich bin in Schwerigkeiten. Ich hasse den Winter. Ich hasse des Frühlingssemester. Ich hasse mich selbst. Wie kann...
I'm a wreck, but I'm not totaled.
I almost, almost, almost did it again. Almost. I was so close. And I stopped. Two days in a row. Two different things. Both equally as destructive. I have started to fail myself. I have started to disappoint myself. I am fucking better than this.
Things that were actually said to me at work...
daniellegregoire: First conversation Boy: Feel my shirt, what material is this. Me: Uh, cotton. Boy: No, it’s 100% boyfriend material Second conversation Boy: (very casually) I’m going to start calling you banana. Me: (blank stare) … why? Boy: Because I find you very appealing. Where do you work?
You know what? I need to whine. So I’m going to. If you’re not in the mood, just skip this post and go onto the next one. If you keep reading, and you say I didn’t warn you, you’re wrong. Last chance. Okay. Commence whining: My dad is having neck surgery tomorrow, and I have to go home to take care of the dogs. Because my mom is staying down at the hospital until...
I was thinking about my friend today. Then I started thinking about staying at her house. We usually make breakfast at noon. Eggs with spinach, onions, and cheese. Sometimes tomatoes. Sometimes mushrooms. Pilsbury Grands biscuits. Always cranberry juice. After breakfast, Em and I do the dishes. By hand. We always “argue” about whether or not I’m going to help. I end up winning....
Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.– Soren Kierkegaard (Submitted by Coruscating.) (via quote-book)
As I’m looking around my room right now, I feel like I have so much less stuff in here than I did last year, and I actually don’t really mind it. I feel like it’s so much less cluttered, and, in turn, I feel like my life is so much less cluttered. It’s kind of nice. Going out to an early dinner with my family today. Have to drive an hour and fifteen to get there. Lame. At...
For those of you who don’t already know, my dear friend Erin is now an aunt. Congrats, Tante Erin. :)
I find Robert Frost to be over-quoted. He was truly a great poet, but all the Emo Kids are ruining his street cred in the world of poets. Thanks, Emo Kids.

Family in Green
So I was watching Dexter: Season 3 today, and he was looking for someone. He said something to the effect of “his blood family doesn’t know where he is. Maybe is family in blue does.” (I don’t promise that is an exact or correct quote.) It made me think about Thursday when Hanna got sick. Matt and I were driving back to the lot to get my car, and I said, “you know, I...
Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I’ve had my share. But whatever happens...– Katharine Hepburn (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)

I Am Freaking Out.
Because I am a perfectionist.
So I came back to find a fresh towel and new garbage bags on my bed. I was so embarrassed because my room was so trashed. Because I had to leave in a hurry to pick up my sick friend from the campus health center. Then I had the graduate student colloquium about teaching after second-year German classes. It was pretty interesting. Taco Bell beefy burritos are filling. I am having trouble with my...
