Lessons

Transmutation = Graduation

Hello, dear readers!

I know, I know. I’ve been absent for a while. The reason? The month of March has been fraught with life lessons. And, I’ve been busy with schoolwork and figuring out personal issues. Nothing serious, just it’s related to school.

1. My medication has been drugging me. Seriously. I would take it in the morning, and two hours later, I would feel tired all the time throughout the remainder of the day.

To eradicate my sleepiness I’ve begun to take said medication in the evening, as per orders from a doctor on campus. (Thank God for free health service!) As a result, I now have much more energy. This means I can get more stuff–like homework–accomplished.

2. I need to work my ass off.

Because I have *tons* of homework that needs to be completed before I graduate, I must press my nose to the grindstone so much and so hard that it bleeds–or breaks off. Whatever works so I can graduate.

3. Transmutation = graduation.

In the anime Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, there’s a magic system that involves a little something called equivalent exchange. Essentially, you cannot simply just make something without giving something back of equal value.

How does this apply to school?

In the simplest terms, if I don’t do the work, if I don’t apply myself wholeheartedly, I won’t be graduating.

I have papers to write, and books to read. I have tests to take, quizzes to make up, etc. It’s a lot of work. But I know I can do it. I have to.

I want to succeed. I want to know that I have a future.

With the proper ingredients, I will be able to successfully work the necessary magic in order to walk across that stage and get my diploma in the mail.

I refuse to let down my friends, my family, and my boyfriend.
