It’s tax day for all Americans, but fortunately, I’d taken care of mine a while ago, so it’s just another day of studying for me.
It’s a phenomenon when things go smoothly for me. For the past few months it has always felt like I’d been treading choppy water, nothing was going well, and everything came tumbling down when I went to bed every night.
Every other week I had at least three assessments, full-time worth of work to study for, and despite that, I never felt like I studied enough, come exam days. I learned the hard way that no matter how much you know, how much you study, it’s never enough and that’s just the unfortunate reality.
On days like these when I can essentially “sit around” and contemplate my life, I remember what my purpose for putting myself through it is.
I realize what my dreams are, my goals, where I want to be in a year and a couple months.
I want to be set for life with my degree, I want to have opened my online store, published my first short story, advanced my photography and music gigs, improved my calligraphy, learned how to bake a mean cake, met more amazing, influential people… The list could go on, honestly.
But I’ve got til August 2018 to attain those goals. And once we get there, I’ll tell you how I lived.
