I was approached by a professor recently; he asked if I could help start a Mental Health Club at my school. My gut is telling me to say yes. I'm not exactly sure how this will play out, but I have faith that it's a good decision.
This journal is going to evolve a bit. As @AxelHeyst pointed out in a discussion in his journal, my "process" right now is mostly about cultivating good habits, mindset, and avoiding up totally fucking up my life (getting someone pregnant, getting into debt, etc). Even though I'm at a community college and live at home, I am determined to suck the marrow out of "college life" and have the most fulfilling experience I possibly can.
So I'll be talking less about finances and more about learning techniques, interesting side projects, the cultivation of friendships and community building.
Just to recap, I'd like to list my web of immediate priorities:
- Maintain and improve peak physical, mental, and emotional health
- Get straight A's and be a nursing department star
- Build a cadre of true friends and experience my first romantic relationship
- Turn the nascent Mental Health Club into something really kickass
