I woke up this morning to sunshine. The first sunny morning in a week.
I slept in and woke up well-rested. I still have two more free days before my classes start. And, most importantly, I’m getting excited about the possibilities of this spring semester. I’m going to be doing some great things.
First, I’m going to be taking three journalism classes that directly relate to my career goals. I’m going to be writing and reading about food, health and science. I couldn’t be more excited.
But beyond that, I’ve also got some great opportunities to do some new things: I’m writing a column about feminism for The Maneater. I’m volunteering with Girls on the Run here in Columbia. And I’m training for my first half marathon.
When I write it down, I’ve got a lot on my plate. But I’ve always got a lot on my plate; that’s nothing new. Instead of worrying about how much I have to do, I hope to revel in the possibilities of what I can accomplish this semester. I have a lot of opportunities. And I think I’m going to have a lot of fun.
Sometimes it’s great to sit with a cup of tea on a Sunday morning. It relaxes me, and reminds me not to rush around so much.
