I won't hold my breath

I've been out of my element lately. Nothing has quite been like I've expected this semester. Which, honestly, I should have expected... Basically anytime I assume something, the complete opposite happens.

I suppose that's why I already feel so overwhelmed with everything. I'm only in twelve hours; my activities should be winding down some; I should have a job; I should be having fun before I have to graduate and grow up. It doesn't feel like anything is going my way right now. I need to stop imagining everything happening perfectly, because I've gotten my expectations too high.

One day at a time.

One event. One mile. One homework assignment. One project. One challenge.

I'm going to take a step back and take on the small things. This big picture is too much for me to handle right now. I'll be sure not to hold my breath while I wait for it all to come together.

And right now, I'm going to continue drinking obscene amounts of Mt. Dew while I plow through these boring applications. *Note to future MESC president: if a record number of people are going to apply, ask more intriguing questions on the application. Some of these answers are mind-numbing...

seven days

I feel like I have so much brewing in my head right now, but I can't figure out how to write any of it down. I'm riding the struggle bus on this blogging thing lately... I need to hop off.

I'll be back in Columbia by this time next week. It's going to be crazy when I don't have returning to Mizzou to look forward to after this semester. *Can't think about it*

Found this picture stumbling this week. It makes me want to take more charge of my life...
