So, it’s been several weeks now since my last gig ended and I am actively searching for a full-time position as a copywriter. Now that I have so much “free” time on my hands, I notice that I don’t necessarily have to go to sleep as early as the working being does. These are my findings:
It’s so bittersweet having to say goodbye to this year’s summer. I don’t necessarily dislike the fall or winter, but since childhood I’ve been conditioned to believe that the most fun happens during the summer. The weather is warm, the days are long; why wouldn’t I believe that?
This summer was pretty different for me. I graduated college in December, so this is my first summer out of school. Can you imagine how weird that feels? Additionally, I was interning this summer at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, which ate up the majority of my summer. Although it was my first summer out of college, I didn’t really get to enjoy it and do “summertime” things. With that said, I made the decision to do one thing that was fun so my summer didn’t feel like a dud. Labor Day weekend was my one shot, so I took it!
Just keep swimming! I’ve always been one to be defeated easily, but I am learning that I must persevere if I ever want to reach my goals and aspirations. Here is a little note to remind us to keep pushing forward. Slow progress is better than no progress and quitting isn’t progressive!
We’ve all had to prioritize things before, right? Especially when things get stressful. It helps you organize what is most important or needs the most attention, over those pesky little tasks that feel big in your head but really aren’t. After putting things in order, don’t you feel relieved? You should, at least, a little. Would you believe me if I said the same goes for relationships? Not just your intimate ones, but platonic ones as well.
As I’m “getting older”, I’m starting to realize how my relationships are shifting. Not necessarily in a negative way. As a matter of fact, none of this shifting has been negative at all; I have only become more aware of said shifting. I’ve seen this kind of thing happen before, usually surrounding a big falling out or argument of some sort. In my case, it has been nothing more than time, maturity and location that has brought about a shift in my friendships. It feels uneasy to admit. How do you “fix” something that never really went wrong?
I can personally attest to being a victim of the “maybe later” mentality. To be honest, that’s what took me so long to start a blog. But here I am and I am proud of myself for realizing that I was hindering myself and doing something about it. Don’t hold yourself back! Go forth in you endeavors; it’s now or never.
