I’m incredibly distracted right now; the seasons are changing, goodbyes have been said to special people, future hellos are approaching out of nowhere, I have a school project I’m slowly working my way towards beginning XD, and…just a lot of things are shifting. Quickly, anxiously, happily…it’s all very distracting. 😄
My baby sister left this week for Army Basic Training and it was one of the worst goodbyes I ever had to say. The last time I cried that hard was four years ago when my family first crumbled apart, and the time before that was probably never. I’m incredibly proud of my sister and I know military life will really suit her, but the letting go was brutal. I survived, though. 😥 I can’t wait to see her again in a few months! ❤
I’m not ready for it to be November already. The year seemed to have slipped by so fast. Its weird to look back and realize so many of my priorities changed over the year from my original 2015 bucket list. I’m not ready for it to be Christmas again. I’m not ready for 2016. And meanwhile, the rest of the country is up in arms over the Starbucks coffee cup designs. Just, why.
My college class on career exploration continues to be wonderful and I’ve been attempting to explore the effectiveness of some of the things I’ve learned about myself, especially the Seven Intelligence test. I tested highly in Musical Intelligence, so I’ve been listening to my music outside at night; to really feel the melodies, emotions, pitches, and beats, to see what my mind might find on the journey. I pace a lot and let myself move with the lyrics and swells. There’s something about being in the darkness in the cold with my music that really helps my mind feel more secure and open to delve deep inside myself. It’s been intriguing…plus, it gives me time to tease the cat with his laser toy. I love that part too. 😄
A lot of other exciting things are going on, but those will have to wait for another day when they’re more set in stone. I will mention that I’m REALLY looking forward to the last Hunger Games film next week! All my spoiler-avoiding for this ending is going to pay off!
I hope you all are doing well; anyone else a little depressed the year is coming to an end?!
