Graduation is fast approaching... except not really.
Do you guys ever get trapped in the planning-for-the-future-and-forgetting-the-now wormhole?
For a while, I've thought I kindof sortof knew what life would look like come May and the end of my student career at KU. Not the exact job, or the exact home, but a state, a region, a fuzzy poloroid of what my life would look like. Due to a series of events, though, my potential future has suddenly shifted ever-so-slightly and now I want to spend Every. Waking. Second. planning for a future that isn't set in stone yet.
(Besides, when is anything ever set in stone?)
There are still days-weeks-months-half a year before graduation. And there will be so many great things in those times. Promise.
Like crunchy leaves blowing across the sidewalk.
Like my favorite student coming by my cube just to say hey.
Like the first basketball game of the season tonight.
Like hot chocolate and warm blankets.
Like Thanksgiving home with my family and a fire in the fireplace.
Gotta keep my head in the game or all these beautiful, joyful, wonderful moments are going to blow by me and I won't even have noticed.
Do you guys ever get stuck thinking about the future? Any sure-fire tricks to slow your brain down?
