So, here I find myself reliving the desperation and stress of the past month. The struggle is real but I believe I am slowly achieving the mechanisms of becoming immune to boredom or tension of being put, as I describe it, on the blacklist. For this situation I have not only tried to find the numerous reasons for not being able to find a placement but also I have compiled a list of things to do, in order, not to loose hope or my mind.
Number one: Sweat that stress
Working out is the first activity of my list, not only allows me to relieve stress but also keeps my mind of the reality in which I am living and it sure does something for my body.
Number two: Museum addict
I have developed a curious taste for exhibitions and so, my intent is to visit as many as I can until the end of the year. Not a cheap activity but is what Sundays and student discounts are made for.
Number three: Irony and self-love
Being on the "blacklist" is hard but my third step is to no be hard on myself. I will find something eventually or otherwise, someone will find one of my numerous emails on their mailbox.
