Finally, the end of fall semester is nearing. I just got word that our plan for the Indianapolis chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) was approved, and all that’s left is a presentation of my group’s findings on the corporate culture of the Arthritis Foundation in my PR Management class.
So, now what?
I’ve spent the past semester daydreaming about what it would be like to have whole nights to do whatever I want–no classes until 9, or projects to feverishly finish. I’ve almost all but forgotten what I use to do with my free nights.
But, like some people make New Year’s Resolutions, I’m currently making end of semester resolutions. I have four glorious weeks to do whatever I want with. I could cook…finish work…watch TV…exercise…Christmas shop…nap…or, even update this blog…all the things I use to take for granted!
If I’ve learned nothing else over the past few years, I’ve learned that everything is relative. I use to think I didn’t have enough time when I was working full time (without school), but now every hour is more and more precious.
Moral of this story: Don’t ever compare yourself to others, or complain–because, it can always get worse (and likely will, as soon as you jinx yourself by saying it!). Instead, appreciate what you do have while you have it.
I’m thinking I might christen my first free evening with some wine and a 48 Hours Mystery marathon. Sounds lame? Not to me! I’ll appreciate every minute of it.
