Honestly, I didn’t expect to do anything for spring break this year. When you’re as run down and insanely busy as I am this year and especially this semester, it’s not as simple as just stopping your mind being in that eternal state of ‘what’s next’ to just take a trip and relax. It just doesn’t work like that. Still, because of Everything, Her and I have been needing time to each other. We have been needing to get away from it all… badly… so after a big fight earlier this week, I planned a getaway for 3-4 days to surprise her and we just took off Tuesday and have been enjoying some time away in the mountains for the past day or two. It’s been fun.
This spring break, a year later, finds me sitting out on a freezing porch once again. Sure I’m in an area, just like last year, that is supposed to be somewhat warm this time of year, but for whatever reason it’s cold again this year and I’m finding myself looking off of our balcony knowing that the end of a phase of our lives is coming to an end. Sink or swim, I don’t care if the landing gear breaks off and we crash land this bitch, this plane we call life is crossing that graduation finish line and we will be alive at the end of it.
It’s amazing how much changes in a year. looking back, these past 365 days were some of the hardest I’ve ever been through. I’ve worked myself harder than I think I ever will again, and spent nearly an entire year of my life engrossed in so many projects, so many things that it’s the biggest blur yet. Still, sitting here, I rest assured in the fact that I’ve done more in college than most people do in the 10 years afterwards. I’ve lived… succeeded… found my limits, and I know that at the end of it I will come out alive and victorious. I know who I am and what I’m capable of, and from here I can go anywhere. Yeah this is the end, but this might just be the beginning.
Anyway, here’s to Spring Break 2014. Some relaxation, and the irony that I am once again freezing my ass off on a balcony writing to Tumblr the story of our lives~
