It’s a Thursday afternoon, I’ve just got out of my last class of the day and I’m sitting in my dorm room at my desk where I spend the majority of my time these days trying to think about what to write this month, because in all honesty this is the first time I’ve actually stopped and looked up. The end of February was busy and March has been no different. I’ve been trying so hard to get through my day in one piece that I haven’t really had time to reflect on things. Lately it’s been like I’ve just been going through the motions of being me. I’ve been particularly busy lately, from attempting to do mountains of French homework, to doing observation hours, to trying to hang out with my friends while also managing to see my family on the regular. With all this activity I have been feeling exhausted lately.
Sometimes I forget that I have to slow down for five minutes and have a minute to myself while not focusing on what’s going wrong in my life at the moment, but rather focus on what’s going right. I like everyone else have moments where I realize life’s fast pace has left me behind, and that instead of running to catch up I have to take a minute and regroup. So I think this month I’ve realized that though life doesn’t stop and neither does time, people have to and do or things will start falling apart. So even though it’s midterm season for some and spring break for others I think we all should appreciate a well deserved break.
