Spring break is in full swing, and I must admit that I am finding it difficult to muster motivation to do much of anything. This semester is a little more stressful than previous semesters because my classes just aren’t my favorite. I started reading Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close, and although its interesting, I don’t feel like reading (which is weird). I keep thinking about all the things I wake up, hoping to accomplish in the mornings, and how few of those actually get done by the time I crawl back into bed. I want to read more papers, I want to read more books, I want to blog more, and I want to feel utterly inspired everyday.
My sister and I were talking while I was getting my hair done on Tuesday, and we were discussing how its hard to feel motivated if you don’t love what you’re doing. My classes this semester are good as far as professors go, but the actual subject matter isn’t the most thought provoking thing I’ve experienced. I guess this is why they call the classes I’m taking “required,” and not “best class you will ever take.” When you’re not excited about what you’re doing, it’s hard to feel motivated and it’s difficult to get really into the work. However, spring break means that summer is just a month away (can you believe it?!). This summer I’m hoping to obtain an internship, blog consistently, and read 12 novels. I miss the days when I thoroughly enjoyed reading, the days when I had two or three hours everyday to indulge in something I loved. College is stressful, but I suppose that’s the point. Despite this semester lacking a bit, I still love my college, and I love the people I surround myself with.
Looking forward, though, I’m SO excited for summer and next year. Summer will, hopefully, be 1000 times better than last summer. I have a feeling that no matter that summer has in store will trump last year on so many levels. Next fall I will be a Resident Advisor, living in a single room, cooking for myself, doing an honors contract, and taking some classes I really want to take! Let’s just say I have a ton of plans and aspirations, and I’m excited to begin the execution process of said goals.
Today is a pretty mellow day, and if I’m being 100% honest, I had an outfit post all planned and ready to go, but I wasn’t loving how the photos were turning out. Sometimes outfits that seem super adorable in your head aren’t so great in execution (or at least on camera). So, instead, I drank an Americano by the pool and read The New York Times and little bit of Girls in White Dresses. Reading and such can be so relaxing if nothing else is working out the way you originally planned. I’m starting to get antsy about the fact that spring break is almost over…I’m really not looking forward to that.
