Irma has thrown everyone for a complete loop, and although the damage was insignificant at home, I am still recovering just days after she left us. I was supposed to get things done, I had a legitimate plan of things I needed to get done, and I have yet to do much of anything. GSU's five-day weekend turned into a ten-day weekend. I spent seven hours without power, and I can honestly say that I never want to relive that experience again. Going without makes you appreciate what you had to begin with.
So, you might be wondering what I've done with those days. My response: You and I both. Haha, you and I both. I have literally done nothing but research careers (I am struggling to develop and tune this aspect of my life, and it bothers me to no end. I have to know where I am going before I get there. Always. I always need a plan for the future and the option to plan for the future in advance, and I currently have nothing to follow as a guide.), catch up on missed sleep, eat tons of takeout food (It's been a long time, so I am enjoying every moment...), play the piano, and read for class. I am, without a doubt, this week's queen of accomplishment.
Since class restarts on Monday, I'm staying home for the weekend and going to my sister's first cheer competition in Warner Robins tomorrow (Saturday). And, because I packed for a hurricane and not a cheer competition, I'm going out to find an outfit that can be worn with Converse sneakers today. It is all rather funny. Labor Day weekend, I came prepared with a cute outfit, and we did nothing and went nowhere. Hurricane Irma week and weekend, I came with T-shirts and shorts, and we are doing something and going somewhere. The bright side of all this craziness and confusion, I get a free outfit!
