Happy New Year! Can I still say that?
Life over the last month has been crazy. Christmas! New Years! Moving back to school! New semester! My Mom's birthday! Planning a concert!
Like I said, life has been crazy. Not overwhelming crazy, thank goodness. It's just been...busy.
The rest of Christmas break was spent with work, family, friends, Settlers of Catan, and books. It was nice to be home, and hard to come back to school. It's always hard to leave my family and friends, but once I get back on campus I remember why I like being here. I'm following my dreams! And a lot of really neat opportunities come out of following your dreams.
I'm a college senior now! I'll get to walk across a stage to get a diploma for the first time in my entire life in December. So ready to cross the finish line! Graduation this year means harder classes, thinking about the future more, wondering where the heck I'll be after all of this is said and done. It's a little bit scary, but more exciting than it is scary. I'm ready!
I made a trip home last weekend for my Momma's birthday. It was a good weekend. I got to spend a lot of time with my family, snuggle my big, furry, wintry puppy, see friends, and celebrate my Mom! It was good to be home, but it was also good to get back to school and establish a good routine here for the semester.
While I was home, I suddenly landed smack in the middle of planning a concert. It's something that I enjoy doing, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.
Which brings me to the above photo.
Everyone has their own way of getting organized and prioritizing things in their life. The above is how I organized my brain this morning. I was walking around my quiet dorm room, messy hair, pajamas, and slippers still on, wondering what the heck I was going to do with my day. All of these things I wanted to get done, but I just no idea how to execute it in my brain. It was almost to the point where I'd become overwhelmed, but the day was saved after I wrote things down. I immediately felt 10x's better after I finished getting organized and was ready to face, not just the day, but the weekend, too.
Now, it's Saturday night, I have all of my homework done, my grocery shopping completed, and I'm already semi-organized for next week. Now, I can spend a Sunday relaxing and hanging out with friends, which will allow me to go into next week feeling refreshed.
If you're feeling like you don't know where to go next, write things down. Get it out of your brain, and just start moving.
Have a happy Sunday, friends!
