Fall Quarter 2014

Welp, it is officially that time again. I start school Monday...Monday...Ew. I seriously feel like I was just marking the days off of my calendar until classes were out and here we are going right back. The days were just starting to get hot and now we're anxiously awaiting the days when it isn't hitting 90 degrees. The summer sort of dragged on in places, but as a whole, each month zoomed by rather quickly.

I can honestly say that I have never dreaded school more than I am dreading it right now. I don't even feel totally prepared. But, I guess I do have everything I need. I'm just so ready to be out. Don't get me wrong, I love the people that I'm surrounded by, and I'm learning so much about myself; talking to people, being more outgoing, learning about other people and other things that I've never even wondered about. But, everything has a season, right? And this "season" is finally about to come to an end. Although, I guess the real world doesn't exactly come with "less pressure," so I'll probably regret wishing for things to speed up.

This is what my schedule looks like the fall...UGH.

10 a.m. : Mass Media Law 
12:45 : Newspaper
5:15 : Senior Seminar
Online English Class for my minor 


I don't think the schedule will be that bad actually. It's just the length of the classes that kill me. I can't sit there for long periods of time just listening to professors talk without feeling like I'm going crazy. With production on Monday nights for the newspaper, those days are going to be even longer. *sigh* I just want to be able to do it all and well. 

I'm also trying to find a job right now. Something in particular that will look good for my journalism major and my future in Nashville, but also something that will pay. So, that's where I'm at with things. I'm planning and carefully looking at my "timeline" and schedule for the next year. Trying to make it all happen just so. But, I also know that God likes to step in a lot and makes things even better than I possibly could have. I want to be open to those things that aren't necessarily in my plan right now, but to be cautious with all of it. 

I keep thinking that somewhere along the lines, my 20's will start making more sense or will stop being so stressful, but if anything they just get more confusing. It's funny how high school doesn't seem all that bad looking back. Oh well... I just keep thinking that means my 30's will be so much sweeter. 

That's all for now. Time to enjoy the last few minutes of staying in bed, having nowhere to go, no deadlines, and not a million other things on my to-do list. Although, on the agenda for today...Finding Taylor Swift on the cover of Rolling Stone and her section in Country Weekly. I'm pretty excited about that.

That's all for now,
Shelby :)
