I have a Type A personality, I think. Everything in my life's sphere has to be perfect and orderly for me to feel secure enough to function properly, and for the most part, I believe I am guilty of having always felt that way. I treat college no differently. Everything taking place in and out of college must be cool and collected, so I can feel some sense of normalcy. If not...well, it often spells a confusing and odd day for me.
That being said, I have planned out my classes for next semester, embarrassingly enough! The toughest thing about filtering through classes that belong to your major is deciding which ones you'd prefer to take the most. It is agonizing, and it is overwhelmingly my problem as well, because ideally, if given the option, I would take all the classes that I find most fascinating. Only...I cap my hours off at fifteen per semester. Can't do more, won't do less.
This week has been insane, and I feel as if there is something to do for, during, and between my classes each and every day. I also realize that this insanity is not healthy. It is not sustaining. It is not rational. Despite having a Type A personality, I am a huge (!) procrastinator and night owl, because it is my procrastination and night time thoughts that breed the creativity I convey. Yes, really. So I am going to make an effort to revise that aspect of my life, because I feel like I am capable of getting so many more things done. It probably will not work, knowing me, but I am going to give it a shot. Starting tomorrow.
Also, there was a solar eclipse this week (The day before my sister's 17th birthday!)! My region in Georgia had the view set at 97% eclipse, and Georgia Southern offered students special glasses around noon on Monday. The joke is on those (hundreds) who chose to stand in that long line, though. It was partially cloudy around noon, and it was cloudy around the time the moon was set to pass over! It was not a sunny and cloudy deal. It was a stormy cloudy. If that is even the proper way to go about explaining the weather condition...While it never stormed, it did get ominously dark and the temperature dropped to around 80 degrees Fahrenheit (which feels amazing for a Georgia summer). It was that abrupt temperature change that let us know that the moon was passing over, because it never fully got dark. No worries though, because I can say that I viewed the total eclipse online and viewed it safely. Shout-out to technology!
