So this is my first post in a while. Normally all I want to do in my spare time is sit down and blog. However lately I have noticed that I hardly have any spare time. So now I have to wonder: Did I over-book myself this year?

After thinking it over, I think my problem is not everything I have to do, but how I am doing it. I am a senior at Georgia Southern. I am about to apply for my final classes, buy my cap and gown, and walk across the stage at Allan E. Paulson Stadium. I have a to-do list a mile long with everything I need to do before I apply for jobs. But all I really need to do is stop for just a minute.

When you are moving forward to quickly (like I tend to do), you forget about what is going on around you. If you don’t believe me, try to remember what your friend wore at coffee yesterday or what you ate for breakfast last Thursday. Kind of embarrassing when your mind draws a blank right?

Well I have decided that it has to stop. I can no longer live in the future. I need to live in the present and just prepare for the future. To do this, I am going to try to put more focus on what I am doing rather than what I have to be doing.

With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I want to know. What are you doing or proud of today?
