I am going to preface this entry with this. I am not naturally... anything. Not many things come natural to me other than a sense of determination and (sometimes) a very positive attitude. I promise you no matter how far I seem to have come since working my way to being slightly good at triathlon, it still takes a lot of willpower and grit to keep up the pace.
Being busy is a wonderful thing. It both prevents stress and causes it all at once. It just depends on how well you're able to balance all your tasks and how much you truly enjoy what you're doing. By "busy," I mean busy as in: Leave the house before 6 AM and not return until past 7 PM busy. As someone who is well-versed in being very busy, I thought I'd compile a list of pros and cons to being busy, as well as tips as to how you can effectively be busy while staying calm, cool, and collected. Or decide to not be busy at all! The choice is yours.
It's the moment I've been waiting for since as long as I can remember, school as I know it is coming to an end and I couldn't be more excited. For so long, all I could think about is how much I dislike school, and how badly I wanted to grow up and live my own life—instead of someone else's fixed agenda. To me, school hasn't felt fulfilling. It hasn't felt like it was preparing me for the "real world;" whatever that is. But school wasn't all so bad.
