Thoughts On: Overworking Yourself

Hey guys! It's been a minute since I've posted here, huh? But man, life has been crazy. This semester has been brutal. With marching band, dance rehearsals for two separate shows, my fraternity, work, and all of my classes on top of it, I've had basically no free time. Just this last month, every single weekend was occupied with marching band, dance, or both. I haven't had a free day since August! Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited about all these opportunities I've had this semester. I can't wait to be on stage again with the dance department in my first ever NIU School of Dance production(s), and being in the marching band is always fun. But man, is it exhausting!

What I've been the most upset about is not being able to properly enjoy the fall festivities! I would have really loved to go to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard with Skylar, or even just spend a day getting coffee and walking through the park and looking at the leaves. It seems like I blinked and autumn just flew by!

So obviously, I haven't been posting here as much as I usually do. And to be honest, it will most likely be the same until the semester is over. My plan is to post about once a week, but I'm not really holding myself to that. Also, I don't know how many of you noticed (or really care), but I basically quit my 365 project. I'm a little sad that I got so far and had to abandon it, but there was no way I could continue giving it the time and attention that I would have liked.

Anyway, that's what I've been up to recently. That being said, I've begun registering for classes and creating my schedule for next semester, and I am trying to make it as simple and easy as possible, haha! I hope you are all having a wonderful fall :)


  1. That's insane! And I thought I was busy! I can't live without my two days off in the week or i'd go crazy haha but it's good to be busy and work on loads of projects like u are x

  2. College can do that to you, it's so easy to end up over worked and over stressed! I hope you can find some time during the week to relax even a little! Good luck this semester! You can do it!!
