Life has been an absolute whirlwind the past few days. A little over a week ago, I left for Glen Arbor, Michigan to spend a week with my family, and it’s been nonstop madness since then. I have a few minutes right now to write on here because I finally have wifi and my boyfriend is running errands and my roommate is napping and this… this is the calm before the storm. School starts in two days.
But I’m not going to complain about school starting, or about how unprepared I am (in every sense of the word— mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually UNPREPARED) or about how I need a million things from Walmart or about how I’m going to fail my Greek class because I don’t remember any of the vocabulary… NO. Instead, I’m going to tell you, my dear tumblr readers, how marvelous life is.
It’s worth talking about. It’s pretty important to take the time to look at your life and just realize things about it. You can’t always just keep cruising along without any depth of understanding about what your life even looks like, you know? You need to sit back for a second… and soak it in. Right now, I’m at a point where everything is overwhelming, and so many feelings and thoughts are just GUSHING through me, I need a second to look at it all and realize
This life we have is marvelous.
And this semester is going to be so hard… I can already anticipate much of the pain and misery I’m going to be enduring with the schedule I have, hah. I am NOT going to be staying up stupid late, I’m NOT. I mean, occasionally, of course, because my boyfriend is kind of semi-important to me and staying up late with him is just gonna be a thing, regardless. Speaking of which— there’s a boy I know who I’m pretty crazy about. He’s great. He’s really great.
I’m completely off topic. All I wanted to do was encourage you to take a second to look at your life, I guess.
Because that’s what I’m doing. And the view’s great.
