Here’s to a New Semester
Last week I learned how difficult it is to start a new schedule. I feel as though I had finally adjusted to the summer, but school has started again and I’m “enjoying” my 14 hour days.
I learned that the motivation and inspiration I had last school year is not coming back as easily as I had hoped this year. I had cultivated impressive time management skills last school year, but I’m already feeling as though I’m struggling to keep my head above water.
That’s just how it is when you hit the ground running, though. I tried to suck all I could out of my last couple of weeks of summer and I’m reluctant to let that go. I’m ready to be working towards school-oriented goals, but when I’m standing at the bottom of those goals, looking up to the peaks, I feel so overwhelmed. I would rather turn the clocks back two weeks, turn around and run towards my couch and my cat and my books.
But I’m not one to shy away. As exhausting and daunting as the new semester may seem, it’s a chance to prove myself once again. It’s the chance to prove to myself that I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.
Here goes nothing.
