Mr. Blue Sky

I love my life. I have never felt such an overwhelming power of optimism and joy in the 19 years I’ve been alive. Matter of fact, I feel alive.

First, I’m considering changing my major. Really, if you look at it, change is inevitable. Change is good! Who cares about all the effort I put into trying to graduate early and then realizing in my [almost to] last year that I would be happier doing something else. A breakthrough. That’s what they call it. I’m having a breakthrough. And that’s what college is, right? Making mistakes, learning, and growing. Like a flower. How cute.

Next, I am falling back into my routine of procrastination. Now, I know you might think this is a bad thing, and of course, it is, but I’d like to think consistency is the key to success. In this case, I’m being consistent with my homework/ studying habits. What’s even better about this is that a part of this procrastination is incessantly playing Animal Crossing. Self-care is what they say. But they also say it’s being “irresponsible,” but those people like to focus on the negatives. Not here.

Going back to change, spring has arrived, and the flowers are in full bloom, and the sun is coming out, and with everyone coming back from break and getting back to the groove and routines of school, it’s nice knowing in the back of your head you should’ve done work for school but also understanding it’s a break and time to yourself is okay. With that being said, you can understand when I came back to my dorm and looked at my planner full of unchecked boxes and mountains of reading, I was elated. Nothing put more pep in my step than getting motivated by all the homework I needed to do for my classes; I felt like a cheerleader.

And while we’re on the topic of the weather, who needs those baggy flannels and pullovers anymore now that the weather is nothing but blue skies and sunshine? Certainly not I. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a brand new Jaleesia. Baggy clothes are so depressing; it’s time to add color. New season, new me.
