Even though I was incredibly happy to catch up on some blog reading this morning I was feeling unmotivated to do anything I needed to do, a.k.a. workout, study for the two midterm exams I had tonight , start a paper…and the list goes on. I plopped in my bed and stared at my notes, not studied them. I was about to give up when I spotted my little stash of children’s book on the bookshelf next to my bed. Yes I still have kids books. I’m weird I know. I decided to read one…
I actually received it as a graduation present from a family who I’ve babysat for since there 1st child was born, Thank you Katy! It might seem very cheesy but sometimes taking a few minutes to read this very inspirational book makes me feel motivated!
I actually found out that today was Dr. Seusss’ Birthday! Happy Birthday and thank you for this amazing book that always helps boost my confidence and reminds me that life is really a balancing act! After my me time, I did some quick studying, 30 minutes on the elliptical, 30 minute yoga video, shower, lunch, and made it to my first class just in time to take my midterm exam! As I was leaving class my professor gave me my graded speech outline…I got a 91%!
The grade is amazing… what was even better were the comments my professor made about my speech! Yes, I’m about to brag.
“You’re a natural presenter with the potential for creating magical presentations. You didn’t get flustered when your video didn’t work and your audience couldn’t tell that it made you nervous. No ‘mousing’ around, this presentation was a pleasure to observe, Keep up the good work as Disney needs more great presenters.”
I literally could not believe I was reading this! My professor has worked with Disney many times over the years, which isn’t an easy job to nab, and she is also a volunteer superviosr for many, many Disney sporting events, like the Princess Half Marathon! So she added this comment as well…
“P.s. Congratulations on running the Princess! This is quite an accomplishment and you should be very proud of yourself!”
I like getting little pats on the back from my professors…what can I say?
Questions for You!
Do you have a favorite Dr. Seuss book? I used to love Hop on Pop when I was little, too!
What’s one of the best compliments you’ve gotten? This has to be my best!
Dream Jobs? Disney Wedding planner, normal wedding planner, and bakery or tea shop owner! I have no other real aspirations, I’m still in the “I don’t know what to do with my life” phase!
