any oklahoma fans out there? in the musical, there's a song sung by my favorite character, ado annie, called "I'm just a girl who cain't say no". while her context of the song is a smidge different than what I'm talking about, sometimes I think this song could be my mantra.
however, lately I have been saying no quite a lot. and I hate it.
because I really really want to say yes.
I want to say yes to bridal showers. I want to say yes to dinners with friends. I want to say yes to going to the Y. I want to say yes to catching up with friends and calling people when I know they are having a rough time.
but I've been saying no. and it's kind of miserable. and I don't have any words of wisdom about this. no solutions or grand things I feel like have been revealed to me. just a lack of energy, lots of studying/school work and a desire to sleep.
so...I pose these questions:
do you think saying no ever gets easier?
does anyone have wise words for saying no when you want to say yes?
what about saying no when you actually do want to say no, but don't want to let someone down?
for reals. insight=appreciated.
andddd because o chem has to have some kind of humor, or it would have no redeeming qualities...
a text from one of my favorites:
U will NOT fail. you are going to make alkenes your biotch (I felt so bad typing that word, but it seemed appropriate).
and leaving class yesterday...
professor: your test is thursday. study hard. I'll be here at 3 for those who want to start early. and I'll stay until...well...until it's time for margaritas!
maybe he's not so bad after all.
