Don’t you hate it when you have so many things to do in a short time period, so you’re always feeling stressed, cranky, and altogether in a funk? That is EXACTLY how I feel about 90% of the time. I mean, who hasn’t felt that way? That’s a more relative question. What with school, a job (or the search of one), sports, theater, music, or whatever it is that you do, there are so many demands on your time.
How do you fit it all in? That is like, the question of today’s society. If someone found a way to make all of your events, appointments, and school fall into neatly pressed slots so that you never had to worry, they’d be a genius. Oh wait, they have. It’s called a planner. But really, who has time to fill out a planner anyways? Isn’t it a waste of time planning how to spend your time?
I guess I wouldn’t know ( 😉 ). Sometimes I feel pulled in so many directions, like a puppet with too many strings. All these things are weighing on my mind, and I can’t seem to get it all done. Don’t you hate that feeling? That sense of impending panic that hangs on your back like a weight that gets heavier and heavier until finally, you collapse beneath the pressure into a miserable condition called depression and, in adult cases, mid-life crisis (dum dum DUMM). I mean, isn’t that why things like that happen most of the time? Because you want a change of pace, tired and worn down from the responsibilities heaped upon your shoulders, or because all those burdens drive you so crazy that you just can’t do it anymore.
That is me. Except I haven’t gone into depression. I am fighting for that little light at the end of the tunnel; the promise of a brighter future without all these leashes dragging me every which way.
But this is just a glimpse of what I have to do before the end of the month: get a transcript from my school (which can’t happen until school actually starts), have a school official sign, seal, and deliver a scholarship competition form before the 31, get my license, fill out the lunch pass and parking pass forms for the school, apply for more scholarships, schedule university visits, narrow down the list of universities I’m interested in, take care of my new exchange student, hep get her schedule straight, help my grandpa with his ginormous yard sale (Ya’ll should come! Msg me for deets 🙂 ), apply for and get a job, find out when theater auditions are, and finish my Gold Award for Girl Scouts. Just to name a few.
But I still find time for my little blog :). That’s how important this is to me. Not that ya’ll are all to interested in my life, haha. But what I’m trying to say is that I’ve been trying to organize all my responsibilities, and so far it’s been helping, so those of you who feel positively swamped should try it too; get one of those jumbo desk calenders with the extra-big day boxes and plot out your days, weeks, and months. It’ll help, because then you don’t have to rely on your memory to keep up. And trust me, my brain cannot remember things at all.
So that’s my busy life. But then, isn’t everyone’s?
