What the Heckie I’ve Been Up To

As you may or may not have noticed, I missed two posting days last week, Wednesday and Friday. Quite frankly, I was really overwhelmed the week before break and I’m overwhelmed now, the week after. All I had was seven(ish) days to, well, chill. Everyone needs to chill every now and again. I had yet to return to Maine, so everyone was trying to get a piece of my time and I was constantly busy. And then I got burnt out as introverts often do.

And then. Finals. Projects. Papers. Holy moly I’ve barely had time to think let alone write. This week I have three presentations three days in a row, two papers due this weekend, then finals the week after that. But hey, that’s college I guess.

My bus ride home from Boston Saturday night/Sunday morning was so crowded they had two buses completely full, and being on the aisle, I probably got two hours of restless sleep total. A bus from Boston to Philadelphia is six hours. Thankfully, I’m flying for Christmas. But then again, my flight is a day after I’m supposed to be out of the dorms, so it looks like I’ll be Airbnb-ing it for a night.

Basically: my life is a bit of a mess right now, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for me to come up with creative posts or even coherent sentences. I’ll try to do better for the rest of the week, with some study tips and motivational posts, and then next week I’m going on a bit of an adventure so stay tuned for that. I’ll try (really really hard!) not to miss another post from now on.

At least maintenance fixed my drafty window so I don’t have to wear gloves inside.

As always, if you liked this post, please like and comment. Cheers!


Life, in General

Short post today, probably for the rest of this week too. Have been feeling less than stellar lately. 

Time for some general life updates.

College is hard. It’s like, really hard and busy and sometimes a little lonely. Sometimes you just get massively overwhelmed and everything seems to be happening at once. It makes you want to go to sleep forever. That’s where I’m at right now.

By the time Thanksgiving break rolls around the semester will be almost over. That’s both good and bad because before I get to go home I have to do a lot of projects and finish a lot of school work. But after that I’m almost done! Hooray!

Philly is getting me down a bit. I’m going to try to get out of here some weekend.

Undeniably I’m doing well, though. In school maybe not so much in life. Unfortunately I have a lot of group projects coming up and I hate group projects because I’m always so focused on getting a good grade I just hijack the whole thing. They make me want to do bad things to myself.

I think it’s important to talk about when things aren’t perfect in life. It’s still important to get out of bed and take and shower and eat even if that’s all you do. So yeah. Life keeps on moving, I guess.
