I Won’t Be Forever Young

I’ve had a few things percolating in my head for a while now. I guess this post is my attempt to tie them all together in a coherent way.

I don’t know about you, but in high school I felt a lot of pressure to do something big. I got good grades, and I won some awards, and I began to hear people say, “I wonder what she’ll do.” And I was the one asking myself this loudest of all, because I believed everyone when they told me I was talented and smart.

A Time to Rest

Classes are picking up, club meetings are every night, there are football games and benefit dinners and volunteer opportunities and jobs… but actually, I’m doing pretty well.

I’ve had some pretty busy semesters in the past, and I definitely learned a lot about myself from them. Like that I need downtime to be able to function. Time for books and writing and music and long walks in the October air.
