So real talk here.

I just got back from my first day at work.  “But it’s only noon!” I hear you say.  It turns out that my battle with anxiety is FAR from over.  Now this isn’t to say I had a stressful work environment; quiet the contrary.  Everyone was very nice and the environment was quiet save for music playing on the radio (oh and for the record I was stocking shelves at a new store that is opening up in town).

So what stressed me out?  Well, for a start, I had to wake up at 5:45 AM to ensure I would get to work by 6:45 (I needed to be early so I could get some training before it all started).  So I went to bed early because I was tired.  Smart thinking right?  Well, I have a med that helps me calm down at night so I can shut my brain off and sleep.  It ALSO makes me have trouble getting up before 7 AM.  So when I woke up, I started to crawl out of bed as I turned off my alarm…and then I fell back asleep.  This was the FIRST problem, as I didn’t wake back up until around 6:25.

So now I had to get dressed, choke down a cereal bar, brush my teeth, and get out the door in 20 minutes.  This caused two more points of stress.

Firstly, I have a high metabolism, and if I don’t eat a lot of food frequently, I crash HARD.  So one cereal bar for breakfast wasn’t going to cut it.  I was already starving by 9.

Secondly, I had to rush, and when I rush to get ready in the mornings, I’m stressed out for the entire rest of the day.

So now I was doing a job I had no experience with on an empty stomach after rushing myself to get ready.  For most people my age, this would be a normal day.  But my normal day consists of get up, do chores, chill, go to bed (while eating whenever necessary).  And all of that stress just…built up.  I was having thoughts, and for a while, I could suppress them.  But then they got really bad, and I had to stop.  Tears were in my eyes as I explained my problem with stress to my new boss and told her I had to clock out.

But if I did one thing right today, it’s that I didn’t quit the job.  I told her I’d be back tomorrow, and I meant it.  I’ll meditate, and I get myself to stop stressing out.  I have to.  I need this job.  I need the money, and I need the experience.  If I can’t work a job I sort of like, how will I ever work a job I love?  I won’t get the experience to GET that job.

For a person like me, who has so much trouble trying to be a responsible adult, I’m proud of myself for being as mature about this as I was.  I didn’t leave without telling anyone or without signing out.  I kept my cool.  And most of all, I didn’t give up.  I won’t let anxiety rule my life.  Not for another second.  I’ll become stronger, with support from my family and friends.  And to all whose lives are ruled by their anxiety, I’m here for you.  I can sympathize; you KNOW I can.  We’ll get through this together

anonymous asked:

This is more of two questions, but I don't want to make y'all answer it seriously separately. Anyways, do you have to be a student at TTU to be able to come in? Second, what exactly is at the Southwest Collections building?

Hey - thanks for asking! Firstly, anyone can visit the Southwest Collection, regardless of their relationship with Texas Tech. We’re open M-F, 9am to 5pm, and Saturdays from 9 until noon.

As for what we have - wow. Tons (literally) of archival collections. Some of the finding aids are here: http://www.lib.utexas.edu/taro/browse/browse_tech1.html and more collections can be found here: http://www.swco.ttu.edu/location/Manuscripts/guide.php. We have ranching records, NASA collections, shelves upon shelves of rare books dating back 100s of years, and a massive collection of maps. And that’s just the handful of things that spring to mind right away!

Cluttered

If you were, say, encumbered by the weight of order, or perhaps by some casual form of OCD, a walk into my hallway would perhaps cause a synapse somewhere within your brain to burst. Hundreds of books -well thumbed -and records - carefully played - line shelves as you enter. But there is no alphabetization. No consistent arrangement bar the occasional grouping of one or two works from the same source place next to each other. Instead, there is a randomness that might cause those who strive to pattern everything around them for sake of convenience no small heartache.

Indeed, there have been times where I’ve struggled to find a particular book or record that I’ve wanted  to reacquaint myself with after not enjoying it for a while amongst this little archive of mine.

Each time I’ve found myself in this position, frantically scanning the shelves for that Harry Crewes collection, or the second hand copy of “Lucifuge”, my search will inevitably cause me to pick out something completely different in it’s place, something I’d forgotten about and not heard or read for quite some time. And I’ll be seized with an immediate urge to delve into this new rediscovery instead.

Isn’t this why we collect these things?So we can fall in love with them all over again, be taken back unexpectedly to a forgotten place somewhere in our past by a particular chorus or opening paragraph? Each one is a little time capsule in its own way. And time capsules work best when buried -it’s forgetting that they’re there that gives their discovery a power.

This is why I’ll always love tangible things over virtual things.

I was starting to think that something was wrong with me because of how much music I have saved on my computer, but then I remembered that in my house there are two shelves of records, three shelves of cassette tapes, and about four or five binders of CDs, and a couple years ago my parents spent the whole summer converting it all to digital and now we have a frigging hard drive of music hooked up to our sound system.

I may be a music hoarder, but I come by it honestly.

Interpol ditches FIFA deal as corruption scandal deepens

By Gregory Blachier
PARIS (Reuters) - Interpol suspended a 20-million-euro ($22 million) sports “integrity” agreement with FIFA on Friday, at the end of testing week for soccer’s scandal-hit ruling body that saw its chief spokesman quit, bidding for the 2026 World Cup shelved and records seized from its Zurich headquarters.
FIFA also faced growing calls – this time from the European parliament – for its outgoing president, Sepp Blatter, to step aside at once, while plans by Germany to reform the way the organisation is run were roundly rejected by soccer chiefs in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Interpol’s decision to freeze funding from FIFA to fight match fixing and illegal gambling was perhaps inevitable, coming only days after the international police organisation put two former FIFA officials on its most-wanted list and the corruption crisis in world soccer deepened.
The increasing damage to FIFA’s reputation raised questions about how long other associated bodies and even sponsors would continue to work with it.
“The real damage of this decision by Interpol is the wider perception that conflicted organisations are now deserting FIFA. It further exacerbates FIFA’s ‘unclean’ image and its escalating isolation,” said Chris Eaton, an ex-Interpol officer and former FIFA adviser on anti-corruption, now with the International Center for Sport Security.
Interpol’s decision was a disappointment, FIFA said, since the 2011 “integrity in sport” programme was not connected to the “current issues” it faced.
The corruption scandal erupted when police descended on a luxury hotel in Zurich on May 27 and arrested seven FIFA officials, pending extradition to the United States.
At the centre of the investigation are transactions that went into accounts held in a bank in Trinidad in the name of CONCACAF, the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football, that were “controlled” by former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner.
In an interview with British television, Oliver Camps, described as Warner’s right-hand man, said he felt “used and abused” by his old friend and associate.
“We were like brothers. I realise that I should not have put so much confidence in him because he made me do the wrong thing and I was doing it very innocently. I knew nothing about those things,” Camps told Channel 4 News.
Warner has denied all charges levelled against him. He was not immediately available for comment.
Channel 4 News said Camps, Caribbean soccer’s finance committee chairman, had signed cheques worth millions of dollars on Warner’s behalf, which were supposed to finance Trinidad’s team in the 2006 World Cup in Germany. It said he was still signing the cheques three years after the World Cup ended.

SCANDAL WORSENS
It has been another bleak week for FIFA.
On Wednesday, FIFA postponed the bidding for the right to host the 2026 World Cup, with Secretary General Jerome Valcke saying during a visit to Russia that it would be “nonsense” to start the process under present circumstances.
Then, perhaps reflecting the growing crisis, the usually composed Valcke unburdened himself of an emotional tirade, saying he was being destroyed by the media in his native France and defending his decision to sign off on a $10 million payment at the centre of the U.S. bribery investigation.
Brandishing his pen, a clearly irritated Valcke demanded of journalists: “You want me to take this pen and to hit my head and say 'Hey! I have been stupid, I should have asked many more questions?’”
“You have decided that after Blatter I have to be next head to be cut?” Valcke told a news conference.
On Thursday, Communications director Walter de Gregorio, the public face of the soccer body, resigned after telling a joke at the expense of his employers on Swiss television.
“The FIFA president, secretary general and media director are sitting in a car. Who’s driving. Answer? The police.”
Despite announcing his resignation, Blatter has remained at his desk, saying he wants to usher in reforms at FIFA before his successor is chosen. FIFA announced that would happen at an election some time between December and February.
The German Football Association meanwhile came up with a radical reform plan under which FIFA’s voting structure should be based on the “size and sporting relevance” of its member federations.
At present, each of FIFA’s 209 members has a vote, giving soccer power-houses Germany and Brazil the same influence as tiny Pacific islands.
Soccer chiefs in developing countries, who have enjoyed generous funding to promote the game from FIFA during Blatter’s 17 years in power, denounced the plan as unfair and racist.
The South American confederation CONMEBOL meanwhile came under pressure of its own when Congress in Paraguay, where the soccer body is based, approved a measure withdrawing immunity from its Asuncion headquarters.
A draft bill to remove the immunity was put to Congress last month after U.S. authorities announced indictments of 14 past and present senior soccer officials and sports media executives connected to FIFA.
“There is an urgent need to repeal this law and get on with the investigation,” Senator Juan Carlos Galaverna said during a debate over the measure, which is expected to be signed into law by President Horacio Cartes. [ID:nL1N0YX1VW]
