Holidays and Finals

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay!! Well finals are coming up and it is between holidays. As a result pressure is coming from holidays and school work. But I have some positive thoughts for you!!! Exams are a chance to be positives. With careful planning, you can have a great time and not be consumed and digested by exams. My advice is to get enough sleep, exercise, and be nice to others. Furthermore disconnect with all negative news. Holidays are about giving and making a difference in the world!! With that in mind, we can do serendipitous acts of kindness to others, meditate, and surround yourself with positive influences. That’s why I deactivated Facebook for the exam and holiday season. That way you can construct your own positive atmosphere to motive you for your exams and get you in the finals move!! With the quiet, you are not stressed out by other people’s posts and complaints on how they fall back. This is your battle, not anyone else’s. Also folks, you need to step up your studying a bit, but allow yourself some fun!!! Study and then relax, so you will be refreshed. Also get some sleep. When you sleep you retain things better and then you are more aware and calmer!!!

Now let’s talk about exam day. On exam day, do not over anxiety yourselves. I recommend that you meditate and watch a inspiring video. Then we review briefly and sit quietly or do creative work. Better yet, write some well wishes to cheer others up, through e-mail or cards. Other people will be stressing and talking to them will make it worse. I learned that its best to approach the task calmly! With that in mind, don’t talk to anyone until after the exam. Also don’t worry about grades. Just strive to do the best that you can! The worst way to improve your grades is your calculation. Grades increase as you enjoy the class and integrate it with your life! I integrate psych into my blog or have fun by making fake interviews or plays about that information. When you have fun, you worry less and you become aggressive and want to learn more!!!! Take your exam knowing you did your best! Afterwards send some holiday cheer and relax. You worked hard. More advice in this blog will come later and more holiday spirit.

Hello Holidays

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay! Well Thanksgiving and X-Mas are coming up and the inevitable increase in assignments and work that needs to get done along with the holiday pressures. Well hang in there my friends, because I know we can do well and make the holidays in general. I am here to get us in the holiday spirit! Holidays are not commercials and the real meaning is the fact that we are thankful for who all our freedoms and privileges and that we can be together as friends and families. Also we learn about giving thanks and being that positive difference out there. Moving on, I am talking about time management and not worry about things so that you can enjoy your holiday. I usually plan to get a good portion of my school work done before break and usually set a real set of work, because you don’t have as much free time as you think! Therefore, I get work done enjoy the holiday. The remaining days, I set a few hours to get some work done! Prior to break, I decide to plan out what I want to do so I do not stress and enjoy myself over the holidays!

446

On that note, let’s talk about how to get yourself in the holiday mood! Well as you get your work done, look for things to be positive for. Start thanking people more and continue to do so even after the holiday has passed. Also when I work, I feel passion and enjoy myself. Also, each day I count down how much more I do and see progress and with each work I am moving closer towards the holiday!!! Life is like the wind, it never stays still and is very transient!!! Also with time moving forward, I do nice things to others!! That way we enjoy ourselves and we are more in the holiday spirit!!! So when I come home from college, I am already in the mood and ready to celebrate and cheer with my family and friends. So 12 days and 23 minutes and change until Thanksgiving and counting as I type.

Positive Messages

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay!!! I have been reading Adolescence Psych material about reading and I have been thinking about receiving positive messages from the world! I hear people complaining about negatives too damn much and only exacerbating the situation and IT ANNOYS THE FUCK OUT OF ME! Therefore, I believe that the best way to be optimistic is to surround yourself with positive media. For example, I listen to Kiki’s Delivery Service Soaring and I’m Going to Fly to lift myself up and keep a positive mood going! Lyrics of high above and I feel stronger only push me to keep being happy and chase my dreams :). Additionally, I post positive thoughts and surround myself with positive folks. OK for those of you negative folks reading my page, there is something eating at you and you just want to express your problems. Well I have a better way to do that! First off, come to terms with your problems and listen to positive music. Then find solutions to address your problems and take control of your life! Then start being positive to others and people will reciprocate. Then your outlook will change!!!! Just like between 6th and 7th grade, I started thinking positively and expected myself to be positive and started expecting better of myself. I don’t expect perfection, there is a happy medium I pursue. Perfection is a bit excessive, because you will never truly be happy and will hate yourself for every mistake. I learned through experience!!! But I learn from my mistakes and strive to improve. Also I surround myself with positive people or those who want to become better. I don’t mind if you are negative, I only care you are nice and you want to improve your mood and self and respect me. So keep being positive and surround yourself with positive media. I reduce my news reading to cut out negatives in life and write optimistically.

Evaluate/Reflection

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay! I have been thinking about disappointments and how we can learn from mistakes. It pisses me off to no end how people just give up too easily! We all mistakes and it is all part of life! First off don’t drown in sorrow or willow in your disappointment! Cheer yourself up and acknowledge that it happens! I watch Full House or hang out with my friends. After feeling calm, I proceed with a plan to bring my shit together. I evaluate what went wrong and implement more aggressive tactics such as more deep processing and more help/review. For example, after my first comp sci test I got a C on, I found a more aggressive study habits that took less time and I made the studying fun so I was able to pull of an “A” in the end. Also everyday, I stop work early so I can enjoy myself and reflect on life. The one thing I love to do is meditate and look over a great view to think things over! I read for fun and think about positives in my life. I have been reading and people have been asking me why I am so perky and happy-go-lucky and remain calm. Well I can answer that for you right away. I think positively, live within the present, enjoy each step of life as a path of passion! Also I meditate on a daily basis. Check on Honest Guys for guided meditations on anger management and staying calm!

Another important thing to consider is the media! Just the other day in Adolescence Psych, we talked about media exposure! Media is very biased and can send negatives, especially news. To keep optimism up, read positive media!!! That’s why I blog positively, meditate, watch optimism videos, and surround myself with positive people! Also I love upbeat music! Also I tune out bad news by minimizing my time on Facebook. When I study, I tune out the outside world to get work done! After my homework then I see positive people and also have a great time to blow off steam. Happy by enjoying the scenario and maintaining control!!!

Maximize Happiness

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay!!! I get so many questions about how can you be happy during stressful times!!! Well I am happy to say that happiness can be anywhere. You just have to slow down to notice it! Whether it be a smile from a stranger or friend, someone offering you a cookie, a compliment, to an opportunity to be something awesome there is kindness everywhere!!! This year, I learned to even more happy by creating a peace of mind! That way I am not fazed by my surroundings and do not let negatives get to me. Also every night before I go to bed, I have me time where I just reflect on the day, meditate, and drink tea. Tea helps me calm down and reflect upon my surroundings!!! I calm down and then I sleep peacefully. Upon getting up, I do not rush myself!! I slowly wake up and meditate and slowly get my goals ready. I sit in silence and listen to calm music! Also I send compliments to random folks during the day. Then my mind is already in my positive mood! Then I proceed to get my work done with passion! I plan my day by spending most of day out of the house so I separate my work and relax modes! I allow study breaks and between classes I study elsewhere with no distractions and minimize interactions with folks so I can focus and just get work done. I catch my friends after class and I work when I am most awake!

437

I have noticed that the best way to enjoy chasing your dreams and class is to find intrinsic motivation!! For example in my Analysis class, I decided to enjoy finding proofs and ultimately connect interviews with different referees. Also learning about school, I decided to connect it to my blog, because I love learning and connecting it to real life. I am on a mission to make the most out of all my opportunities and expand my happiness. While connecting annoying concepts to things I like, I am motivated to do better! Later on, I have a feeling I will kick some ass on the exam, just like my Ravens did to the Steelers on TNF MOTHERFUCKAS!!! Then I blog and am motivated to learn more and connect that shit forward!!! Also when I take study breaks, I jog with upbeat music with country music. Or when I am in the Goodpaster Dungeon Computer Lab, I blast music and have a dance party down there! Also I play uplifting videos. For those frequent readers, I stream the Tony Corrente “Back in the Saddle Video”. As you may or may not know, Tony found cancer after coughing of blood from taking pain killing after breaking up the Ravens-Steelers fight in Baltimore!!! He caught it just in time and overcame chemo to return to officiating and support! Tony glad you’re still officiating my friend and can’t wait to catch you on MNF when my Redskins have a showdown in Big D against the Cowboys! Hope to see you officiating in Baltimore this year! Keep being you!! Stories like Tony’s only encourage me to work even harder and step up my game! Also I feel how lucky I am to chase my dreams!!! I study in blocks of hours and then enjoy the process! That way, I worry less about my grades and I enjoy the process and the grades just come! I focus on learning and feel a rush and want to keep learning.

435 436

Also every evening, I usually finish my work at about 8 or 9. Then I go back to my room and relax! I meditate, drink tea, read inspiring materials, reflect on my day, and just go to bed at a reasonable time. Tea helps me calm down and reflect and think positively! Or I talk with my friends and we let tension loose! I feel relaxed and send compliments to folks on FB or by e-mail! I e-mailed a few refs just to show my appreciation and most responded with thank you Peekay and a few nice notes! That cheers others up and only enhances my happiness! Happiness is contagious folks, let’s keep spreading it!

434

OK folks I’m out, keep being you!

Thank You and the Intangibles

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay! I can’t begin to tell you how much it warms my heart and lifts my spirit when one act of kindness can really trigger a great friendship or whatnot! For example, one day while working in the Daily Grind, I made a new friend, when she was down and thought we didn’t have her favorite tea. I went into the back and looked for it and found it for her and made her day. She gave me a big hug and we just cheered each other up afterwards and we’ve been great friends ever since!!! Also, I found friends when one kind person invited me when I was lonely in the Great Room!!! Also with Hey Arnold as well!!! Also when people thank me for giving them  cookies or offering them words of encouragement, I feel more empowered and continue my work with passion!!! Moving on, I always try to help as many people out as possible in a day!!!! I live everyday like its my last! That way, I will be able to make the most out of everyday!!! An act of kindness is the right way to go my friends :)

Today, I sat on Admissions Hill and looked over the lovely St. Mary’s River!!!! I don’t know, but hills are always great!!! I guess its the bird’s-eye view that I get from seeing the world below. Today particularly I reflected on my new study plan! So far, I have been scoring much stronger in shorter bursts of time. However, I realize that I need to study a little bit in the morning right before the exam and keep it quiet and not talk to folks prior. That way I am able to focus and have information fresh. Also be a bit more specific and comparisons. That way, I will able to get all the minor details I have been missing on exams!!!! But I am off to a strong start!!! Also I reflected on all the positives in life and how to make a difference, get work done, and still have fun with friends :). I recommend you isolate yourself when you study. Go to an isolated location in the library or academic building and just get your work done!! I stay in quietce so that I can focus. Then after 5-6 hours of work, I am done. Then I come back to my room to relax and then I chill with my friends :). Its good to separate between relaxing and work environments. That way the stress does not follow me around and I can focus to my optimal level! Also I don’t get angry for not being able to focus in my room! I know when to relax and work. Also I block of hours to focus. And I plan to get better each and everytime! Anything is possible that what makes life so possible and awesome!!! Also I thought about how lucky I am to have the right to pursue my dreams!!

You all have a good one.

Fall Break Festivities

What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay! Well my Fall Break has started and I have got to say there is so many positives! The best part of breaks is time with friends and families along with sleeping in. Also after a few days of relaxation, I feel motivated to get homework back together!!! With breaks I allow myself some fun!!! Also over breaks, I discover some nostalgic moment. Some nostalgia for example is me watching Arthur or Hey Arnold or Full House! I love these shows, because they give great life lessons and takes me to a more simpler time when I jumped into leaves, my folks baked cookies, and watched Winnie the Pooh all day. These shows also encourage me to keep chasing my dreams and keep true to myself!! For example, I learned from Arnold to keep at my goals and to keep being cheerful. Being cheerful is contagious! For example, when I held the door at Goodpaster this afternoon people all thanked me and yelled “ALL ABOARD” with me and “Have a great fall break”, as I pretend to be the train conductor directing traffic.

429

Also during the break, I enjoy exploring. For example, I skip around Washington DC, Baltimore, and Alexandria for fun discovering new restaurants and new locations. Furthermore, I find new parks to jog in and go to places I haven’t been to in years. For example, I went to the zoo after 3 years Spring Break 2013 and discovered Alexandria and walked the Wilson Bridge. When I cross the Wilson Bridge, I can reflect on my past, present, and future and reflect how I have grown and make future goals. I strive to better myself as a person! There are so many extended metaphors in life that I can see out there!! Furthermore, my mind is clear as I see awesome places and meet awesome people. When I came back from the Wilson Bridge, I met a nice family with a dog named Fenway! We all cheered on the Red Sox and they were nice enough to give me directions back to the Metro Station!

430

After relaxing, I take a few days to get work done. Therefore, I can get ahead and be ready for school to resume. That way, I am able to get ahead and when school returns I am not bummed out. Instead I feel more determined to keep moving forward!!!
