So much this, but also struggle needs to come with a positive accomplished goal in order to be considered growth too, imo. If one just struggles constantly without any aid towards what needs to be achieved for good growth, then it can really hurt a person rather than help. I've been on both sides. This year is a positive struggle for me, although it definitely hasn't been fun and sometimes it's hard for me to think of it as a good thing, but I know deep down I needed this struggle. It has really opened my eyes to some realities and is further helping me figure myself out as a person and what I want to do in life, even if I feel a bit lost most of the time.
Definitely agree with you there. Struggle without accomplishment (whether it be through lessons learned or some more tangible aspect, like getting an A on a test) is just struggle, period.

I try to approach anything challenging with the "what I can learn here" or "how will this benefit me" mentality, so as to ensure that I will take at least something away from the struggle. And I love doing that because I feel like I am constantly surpassing obstacles in my way and fulfilling my "human potential" so to speak.

But for a long time I simply struggled and said "Why me?" or blamed others for my shitty life. Totally sad way of going about life. It's a hard habit to break. I won't pretend like I still don't think that way sometimes.

On the bright side it means you did well in the first interview
Yeah I know. :LOL: I'm honestly a little surprised because while I thought I did well, on the other hand I also thought maybe I screwed myself stumbling over a couple questions from being so nervous and put off guard over the whole interview setup which was over Zoom and was talking to 3 people at once. Even though I did openly admit through my stumbling that I was really nervous and I apologized.

I feel like I want to throw up thinking about this one, but I think I'll be a little more prepared now. At least I know who I'll be talking to this time. I wrote down some things I even forgot to mention the first time, and tried to recall the questions I stumbled on so I can maybe answer them better in case they ask again.

Today is going to be a better day. I'm meeting up with a friend later this afternoon to talk and do some hiking, haven't seen her since February so I'm excited to see her. My kitty's lab results came in and she has no other infections and kidney function is good, just has this UTI that needs to clear out. She's feeling better already this morning, actually being cuddly and talkative, whereas the last couple days she really didn't want to see me, went off by herself to sleep rather than sleeping next to me, and mainly just kept to herself. She doesn't seem to be running to the litter box as often either which is good. :) Now if only she'd keep up taking her antibiotic. Caught her this morning already trying to pick around it in her food. :rolleyes:

Pretending I'm distracted while Gus hides his treats around the room always brightens my mood. :LOL:
Gosh that's cute. :LOL: Today I was in the garden picking veg and my girl stood on the other side of the fence begging for peas, so I handed her a couple. When I was done in the garden, I came back to the garage and set my bowl outside the door while I grabbed my other dish to pick the blueberries. Every time I had my back turned she would snatch a pea out of the bowl and run off with it to eat. :LOL: I love that she loves the garden as much as I do haha.

What would we do without our little 4-legged scamps? :LOL:

I've needed a new desktop for a long time now, and after 4 days of researching I know what I want and found a refurbished model last night through the manufacturer's website. Told myself I'd purchase it in the morning. Went to find it today and it's gone. Poooooop. -_- Guess I'll wait a little bit longer to see if another refurbished model comes back in stock.

I hate when that happens, I had that happen when I wanted to order a drone, the only affordable option with good ratings was unavailable the day I got my damn birthday money :cry::LOL:

Applied to 4 very different jobs today completely unrelated to my field of study that I'm pretty much giving up on at this point in time. Hopefully I should hear back from at least one of them and fingers crossed they're not unprofessional either. On another note, for the 3 weeks I've been trying to get ahold of a local animal shelter to adopt a semi-feral cat to be a mouser in my husband's shop. They finally called back today and set up an appointment for tomorrow to meet a couple of their kitties. I'm excited who I'll get to meet. :D
