Senior year is in full swing. Assignments, tests, club meetings, work, internship, and job searches.
It has been a busy couple weeks and I honestly have not had the energy or desire to sit at my computer and write despite loving this little corner of the internet deeply. I have been writing for work, for school, and little for fun these past few weeks and though I’m loving my internship, will be glad when my work writing can go back to fun and inspired writing.
This weekend I have been doing a lot of thinking and pondering. My sweet friend Stephanie invited me home to northern Pennsylvania with her this fall break and I just have to say it has been EXACTLY what I needed.
A 5 day weekend full of time at the lake, exploring Scranton, kayaking, paddleboarding, shopping, running, napping, hiking, eating, laughing, movie watching, and mostly just hanging.
I took Friday and disconnected. I didn’t turn on my phone and it was magical. To take a day for just living in the moment and not worrying about everything I had to do was refreshing and powerful. It was my goal this semester to have a disconnected day once a week but due to work, projects, and my own excuses I have not been taking this day. I really should start.
This weekend gave me the opportunity to think a lot about where I wanted to end up. Now I don’t know the answer to this question but this weekend opened my eyes and mind to think about how different my life would be in different places in the world. Whether I was in the city, suburbia, the country, etc….
I know it is not a final decision but where I end up next will shape me drastically.
Coming to college I was shaped and grew in my environment more than I could ever imagine. Now that I know who I want to be my surroundings will shape me into what I will be.
I feel like there is a lot of decision and weight in where I end up since it will help define me even further.
What sort of life do I imagine myself having?
Is it that city life? Is it the laid back country life? Is it the community of suburbia?
In other less profound ramblings here are some beautiful views of my trip this weekend!
