I now have school coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am totally not ready to go back. I just really don’t want to. Summer always goes by to quickly, and a lot of the time I am ready for school. I am excited to going back to having something to do all the time and learning new things, but not this semester. I am ready for my degree to be finished and just done with school, but I keep putting it off. I am also even thinking of changing my degree, which seems to happen a lot. I never know what I really want to do with my degree because I never wanted to work a typical job. I have always wanted nothing more than to travel and experience life while not being tied down, but I never knew what kind of degree that entailed. I don’t think it really does entail one, but the problem is, is that money is still needed to do these things. I have never wanted to be tied down to a job, and I am sure most people don’t like to as well. I have always just wanted to do my own thing on my own time. Experiencing the world of travel is what I definitely want to do, and I am slowly starting that at least. I have a trip to Japan coming up in a few weeks, and this is a good start. The only problem is, is that I have to come back home to reality. I just keep telling myself this is only temporary until I finish my degree and can figure out where we want to go, but it always seems so far away. It also doesn’t help when I think about changing up my degree as well though. I don’t think changing it would affect me to much seeing as how I don’t want to look for a typical job anyways. Having a degree period will help me, despite what it’s in. I don’t know though, it is very complicated and still a hard decision to make.
It also didn’t help when we watched a movie last night, which is called The Way, and it was actually a very good movie. Of course it starts out sad, and it kind of is throughout the whole movie, but it is totally a good movie. Basically a dad walks the Camino de Santiago which is a catholic pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. He meets people on the way that are also doing this, and everyone is doing it for their own reasons. I don’t want to spoil the fathers reasons just in case anyone wants to see it. Even though now days you can just look it up on the internet and it will tell you, it may even just be in the trailer, but oh well. Seeing him do that though really makes you want to get out and kind of do the same thing, if you’re into traveling of course. It’s really exciting and all the different people he met and became friends with is just an awesome experience, and that’s something I would like to experience. So yea reasons like that are why I would like to travel, besides learning the different cultures around the world, and of course the food. I love food, and I love to try food, so experience other countries food is a huge bonus.
Anyways I have been so busy trying to plan our trip to Japan and getting everything planned out, tickets bought, and hotels and what not. Then on top of that trying to figure out my classes, buying books, and finding out where my classes are going to be. Making sure I have all the supplies I need basically, plus I have a friend visiting for a couple of days, and my boyfriend has a friend visiting for a few days. Too much going on for my liking sometimes, and it’s all approaching when I will continue to be busy with school work, so I feel like I am not having any personal alone time. I write my blogs at work because I don’t have any other time. I’ve started working out also so I had to add that into my schedule, but that’s a good thing. I am doing really well with it and keeping on track so hopefully I stick with this. I have the motivation and I need to keep reminding myself what the motivation is and why I am doing this. It’s hard to do, but it will get easier and once I start seeing results I think that will help as well. I am excited to see results because I am tired of complaining about my weight, but never doing anything about it. So I finally decided to improve myself and no more complaining. So yea, I have been kind of busy, and all I really want to do is just sit, relax, and watch some shows or even read. Writing at least helps me keep connected to myself at least, and I did write a short story finally after forever of not writing anything creative. Even if it wasn’t anything super awesome, the fact that I wrote something creative after being so absent from it, is awesome to me. Hopefully I can keep this up with school work and everything, then again maybe it will even help my stay focused on it. That’s my life for now though, busy, busy, busy, but super excited for our trip to Japan! I will make sure to post pictures and talk about my trip as well, but I still have a few weeks until then. For now, that’s how the cookie crumbles!
