At some point, I decided I wanted to be done with school as soon as possible.
At another point, I decided it would only be one more academic year.
At a last point, I decided I needed to be done in 2013.
And where am I now?
I decided, for the sake of hopefully not burning out, that I could bust out one more semester. But that had to be it. I love my college experience and my psychology major but I have bigger plans outside of being a college student. I want to start living my life. I’ve been better at doing that in the past year or so with the help of women in the blog world and just trying to live in the moment.
My other ‘a-ha’ moment came to me this weekend – I don’t think I like college. Since day one, I’ve had stress underlying every semester. No matter how much I try to find classes I could fall in love with or make the “perfect schedule”, it hasn’t worked out. For me, I just want to live. That is my top priority for 2014. By living, I have to find my place in the working world, right?

As for now, I’m just trying to survive.
I have so much I want to blog about – I’ve actually been remembering to take photos to use in possible posts! A more consistent schedule will *hopefully* be happening since I’m down to one job and school. Yes, I sadly had to leave my office assistant job at Glensheen to focus more on my studies and find some downtime for myself. This past week was the first week without those shifts, so I was adapting to sleeping in and getting caught up on some coursework.
Q for you!
+ What was the hardest part of your college experience?
+ Did you end up taking a break after your undergrad?
