I AM OFFICIALLY FREE UNTIL FEBRUARY 2011. I don’t think I have ever been so excited to be back in Syracuse. I’m ready for change and to work fully on myself – it’s time I took some time for myself. This semester has been hell. From a ridiculous amount of homework and club commitments to issues with guys and friends. It’s about time for a break – perfect timing.
Therefore, I have a lot I want to get accomplished. Everything is for me (yes, this girl right here). Here’s an overview of the winter break:
1) GET QUERY LETTERS, SYNOPSIS AND MANUSCRIPT TO AGENCIES. Noon is a story that needs to be heard and recognized. I’m determined to get it noticed and the next month and a half will be dedicated to that novel.
2) WORK OUT. Okay, this is everyone’s wish when out (or still in) school. However, last winter break I went to the gym six days a week and looked damn good. I’ve gained some fluff back and want to trim down. Losing 5-8 lbs is possible.
3) FIELD PERIOD AT JOWONIO. This one I have no choice but to try to enjoy. The only annoying part is I wont be getting paid for something I’ve done for years – work at early childhood centers. However, I will do my very best work.
4) GET GUYS OUT OF MY HEAD. This semester has been a whirlwind of guy drama. I’ve experienced so many ups and downs with guys that I’ve finally come to the point that whatever happens, happens. I will not seek out anyone or expect anyone to seek me out. If someone wants to talk or hang out or whatever – so be it. Yet, I’m not going focus on stupid guys when I can be focusing on my writing career. Like I’ve said, whatever happens – happens.
5) CONTROL MY ANXIETY/PARANOIA. This semester has shown me that my anxiety has upped itself a few levels to the point where it has frightened me. I’ve talked to therapists a lot since ‘the difficult years’ of high school, but this semester has brought me to scary points of anxiety that I hadn’t experienced since I was sixteen or seventeen. To truly be happy and content with myself, I have to find better ways to control my anxiety. This semester showed me that I still have work to do and I’m willing to walk right back into therapy if the need be.
With that all said… LET WINTER BREAK BEGIN!
