It’s been a while since I’ve written a post on this blog, a real, thought-provoking blog post. This one, while it might not be thought-provoking, is at the least, an update, an explanation, a window into my life.
I feel like I have not written anything in forever, but it’s only been a little over a month. I was so diligent to keep up last year, but this year, my blog has fallen from its priority spot. Life has had other plans. My energy for writing is mostly taken by work and school. Because I tend to work in the mornings and do my homework in the afternoons, I have time in the evenings, but use it to be with my family or friends. (Confession: I do sometimes waste time on the internet, more often than I’d like.)
I did not realize how crazy this year would get. This school semester, I have had to start thinking about college and life after school! There are so many big decisions for such a small person to make. I have so many more responsibilities that I have to take care of. Looking at schools, studying, filling out scholarship applications, it’s hard sometimes.
What is the point of this post? To vent? To ramble and make it look like I actually have something of substance to say? Maybe, but I like to think that I’m offering up a tiny slice of the pressure, emotions, and business I’ve felt this year, and it’s not even March.
Speaking of March, the business has yet to come. My first school dance, the junior prom, my biggest dance recital of the year, a big test, and the Latin Convention (I’m a nerd, yes) all happen in March. I’m honestly looking forward to all of it, but to keep from getting overwhelmed, I’m taking it one step at a time. One step at time.
