“When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened”-Winston Churchill
Today is the first day of the new semester. I have been to school a hundred years or so and I am thinking I can take year 101 in stride. However, this will be a busy semester and my last semester of graduate school(unless I am insane and keep going).
This morning, I actually felt a bit stressed before I had even stepped out the door. I am not good at balancing. Often, I run headlong into projects, life and situations without regards to how they will eat up my time. There is so much I have to do-work, school, homework and then there are things I want to do-socialize, create things, blog,etc.We all know that I am a fanatic about my time. I am contemplating different ways of staying on top of things.
Should I have a very detailed schedule? Should I just have goals and activities for the day/week and work towards a general completeness? The questions abound. The truth is life happens and planning is good but life often gets eaten up by activity that way. There has to be a middle ground between free-floating and military precision! In the meantime, I am putting one foot in front of the other and heading into the day(laughing at my silliness). Life is too delicious to be worrying about worrying.
P.S. On a brighter non-nerdy note, I am loving the cooler weather that is visiting this area. I got to wear my fancy loafers today and lovely cardigan today. I know, I am killing the summer parade but my clothes make sense in the fall.
Have a wonderful day.
