…the need for speed….er, writing, that is.
I’ve wanted to write a post for the past week or two but I don’t have a lot to say. I just want to write. strange, huh? Yeah, maybe. Writing is my way of getting stuff out there. I could care less if you guys read it. It’s always nice to get some feedback, but that’s not why I do it.
Ok. I’m going to let it go. ready?
It’s finals week. YAY….said no one ever until now. I honestly don’t mind finals. I’ve been ready for this semester to end for quite some time now. I’ve been looking forward to finals since Thanksgiving. I just want the semester to be over. It’s been a long 4 months and I’m ready for a break. from this school, these people, and this town. College just doesn’t seem like my cup of tea. I’m looking forward to the future. Post-graduation. I want to do something meaningful with my life. I want to travel and be adventurous. I want a family. I want to fulfill some of these dreams that have been running through my mind. I realilze that life isn’t rainbows and butterflies…it’s compromise. Yeah, I already learned that from Maroon 5 but I want my chance to experience it to the fullest. I don’t feel like I can do that in college so I’m looking forward to graduation. 3ish more semesters!!!
I just decided, literally right now when I was sitting in my bed typing this, that I’m going to run a half-marathon this spring. I’ve always wanted to run a full marathon by the time I’m twenty-five, so why not get a feel for it now? I’ve fallen off the running bandwagon since coming to college and I’d like to get back on this spring. So, that means that this is happening. It is on my blog so now I’m inclined to do it and if I don’t, all of you will never let me forget it. Right? right. 🙂
I also just decided that I’m going to participate in the Polar Bear Plunge in St. Joe this winter. The actual Plunge is on February 16 and I need to raise at least $75 to be able to do it. You think you could help a sista out? Last spring, I told my friend Jared that I would be on his team and raise money for the Special Olympics, an organization that he is very fond of. He’s a star bowler and basketball player for them 🙂 I intend to keep my word, raise the money and take the plunge. I honestly don’t care if I’m the only one out there, the Special Olympics is a great organization and I am happy to do what I can to support them in their efforts to facilitate activities for individuals with disabilities.
Ok. I’m off my soapbox and I think that’s all I have to say ’bout that. Sorry this was a little random. I just wanted to write. I accomplished that, so thanks for reading my ramblings.
Oh, one more thing. If you don’t know who Andrew Peterson is, check him out. http://www.andrew-peterson.com/ His music has been a godsend this semester. He is my go-to artist.
