Under the Weather Week

This week has been rather under the weather for me. And also for Southern California. The weather has been bitter and cold. So cold, in fact, that it was snowing in Montclair (which is not far from my hometown).

I blame the weather for putting me in a weird funk. I have had no motivation to do anything - attend class, study, go to work for athletic medicine, work on my layout designs for the yearbook, volunteer at St. Johns, write my Trojan Health Volunteer journals. It's not that I don't have enough time. I have all the time in the world yet no motivation to start the task. The more I try to force myself to focus on my commitment, the less motivation I have to carry through with them.

I'm a classic case of the "self-control depletion" theory that we have been discussing in my Violence as a Public Health Issue class. The more I try to utilize self-control, the less self-control I have. How do successful people combat apathy and lethargy?

Definitely have to break free from this funk since my dental school interview is next week. I've been putting off interview preparation but now, it's time to start panicing.
