My apologies for being so absent these past couple of days. It”s been a needlessly stressful week. On top of attempting to manage two jobs, an internship, volunteer work and a full load of classes, I’ve been handing plenty of personal drama (which is not my forté to say the least.)
Anywho, I decided to escape the hustle of campus life to sunny and very cold Tampa. It’s been a welcome hiatus of activity, if you don’t include the text I just received asking who is covering my shift. It never ends! Oh well; I’m certainly not one to complain about the glory of a paycheck.
I’ve felt very international these past two days, surrounded by my good friend’s South African family who has quickly made me feel very welcome and at home. I just hope that all the stress I feel encroaching on me goes away. I know I’m loading my plate up way too high with to-dos, and I pray I can manage it all or hello, anxiety attack! I hate that feeling of my chest tightening when I know there’s one approaching. Here’s to hoping that I can ward it off and be as spritely as ever.
Hope you all are having a lovely three-day weekend! Kayaking adventures (hopefully) tomorrow!
