With classes quickly approaching I’ve been thinking a lot about balance (and how much I suck at it). Every semester for the past three years I always tell myself that this time is going to be different- I’m going to start exercising, I’m going to eat better, I’m going to study more, I’m going to read more, I’m going to help out around the house, I’m going to write, I’m going to hang out with friends, I’m going to blog more, the list goes on! Of course at the end of the semester I haven’t changed a bit so I make it my New Year’s Resolution and the cycle repeats.
I am so tired of being me and I really truly want to change, especially since this is going to be my first semester as an actual legitimate college student- (my days of keeping my age a secret are finally over)! I want a job, I want to get all A’s, and I still want all the things I mentioned before, but I need to figure out a way to do it all without crashing. At times I feel like it’s impossible, but I always remember what someone once told me: You have the same number of hours in a day as Beyonce.
So what am I going to do about it? Well for starters I’m going to be realistic about what I am willing to do (ex: there’s no way I’m going to wake up at 4 in the morning so I can walk/jog/run around the neighborhood in a desperate attempt to exercise). I’m going to make a schedule that organizes my time so I can do everything I need and want to do with some time to spare.
Life is so short and I recently realized that I am waiting for my life to begin. For some reason I thought that I can’t write or go out without my parents until I moved out, which is why I desperately wanted to move away for college. Now that I realize how wrong I was, I want to make sure every minute is used doing something that will help me reach or complete my goals. This means a few things:
♥ I need a job to save up for my England trip and to redesign this blog
♥ I need to write so I can improve and write my own book
♥ I need to delete my Netflix app (cries) so I can use that time to read or study
♥ I need to use any extra time working on blog posts
I’m hoping that the motivation I feel now will last throughout the semester and I won’t fall back into the cycle.
