It was a long, arduous, and an often miserable quarter, but that’s all in the past now. I’ve learned, I’ve grown, and I’m still improving day by day. Sophomore year, you were good to me, but I’m glad as hell you are over with.
I’ll save the long post for when I get my laptop up and running again. Typing this ish on the phone takes forever, yo.
In short, I’m just burned the fuck out, both mentally and physically. This quarter pushed me to my limits, but it was a good learning experience nonetheless. I only have a week to rest here at home before work and summer school starts at UCLA, so I better make the most of it.
The concept of a short vacation takes on a whole new meaning in college. Well, at least for me. It’s not about fancy getaways and crazy adventures, but moreso just lounging around, spending time with family and friends, and, best of all, enjoying mom’s cooking. I’ve grown to really appreciate the days where life slows down, even if just for a fleeting moment. That shit does wonders for me.
With that said, it’s high time I get some real sleep. I’ve averaged 5-6 hours of sleep per day this quarter, pushing through hell week after hell week for dance, as well as keeping up with my daily swim routine.
Maybe I’m making this quarter sound worse than it really was, but I don’t care. I’m just fucking tired, yo. I need some rest.
It may not necessarily be a source of happiness, but it’s damn well one of the biggest sources of stress for me.
y u so expensive, UCLA?!
That feeling… not knowing whether you’ll come back next year because of financial reasons… it gets to me sometimes. It’s like that every single fucking year. I’ve put so much work into my own education, and to give it up because of a stupid technicality is just…
I can’t even put it into words.
And now summer school?! C’mon man, you’re killing me here.
