Recently I was once again accused of switching when I walk. You know, when you let your ass cheeks uncontrollably swish around left and right when you move around with your legs.
I don’t know how I feel about this. I mean, me? Mr. Masculine? Sashaying like that around town? Get outta here. I’m like… so butch it’s out of control…
At first I thought that maybe it only happened when I was walking down long hallways and I was inspired to… you know, intentionally WURQ that runway. And despite my ANTM-watching habits, I just don’t think of myself as that kind of guy that spills rainbows all over the place when I’m roaming about in public. Yet with recurring frequency I get called out for my ass and hips doing way too much work when I walk. The other week it was the tennis courts and apparently I do it every time I start to get tired and walk back to the baseline. Other switch spottings: going up my building’s stairs (how does that even happen?), public bathrooms, when I’m singing karaoke (guilty, but that shit is intentional when you’re singing Beyoncé). Most recent spotting: the lengthy hallways of Georgetown Hospital.
RLY THO? A hospital? C’mon Choronda.
Srsly though, I’m not that guy. You know, that guy whom you spot from 5 blocks away trotting down the street with a glitter cloud hanging over his head and swears he’s walking on lucite heels in a music video about unicorn butt plugs. That’s some extra level shit and as much as I endorse that idea, that’s just not me. Yo, I’m trying to keep my shit gully, son. Like this:
(FYI, this gif is the exact opposite of gully.)
NB4R, if you see me on the street and you see me switching, please holla at me or throw something at me just so that I’m aware. I’ll probably turn on my G limp just to overcompensate.
Everybody knows their limits and often or not they will push these limits, be it at work, on a project or even studying.
During stressful times we can all become overwhelmed with everything and we need to get as far away as possible from the source of the stress.
During the exam periods in college a lack of sleep,patience and other things are very evident and tempers flair between some. A Solution to that problem is to have a good night sleep and switch off from it all instead of being tired and cranky be positive and refreshed.
I know in my first year i was one of the tired and cranky ones simply because of all the travelling i was doing each day.
What ive learned is that if you just switch off for a small while and move far away from the source of all your anxiety and stress and do something unrelated to the cause of it you will feel much better about yourself and the way you feel about your project,exams or work.
Hearing that a new first year has already left, the BSC in Creative Multimedia in LIT Tipperary, i was somewhat shocked.
Some people can find adapting to new areas,courses and other things rather difficult and may feel overwhelmed but the best option in my opinion is to take a step back and analyse the situation. After analysing the situation and switching off briefly its quite possible the person will feel they have a new lease of life and are willing and able to take on the task at hand.
I wrote this article because i seen that some of my classmates were getting a bit flustered with everything that was been thrown at them in the first two weeks back at LIT Tipperary.
What i hope is that you take something from this post and use it as ammunition to back you up when you feel like throwing in the towel.
As the title of the post suggests “Just learn to switch off”.
Thanks for reading,
