S3 Scribble #2: Malibu

“Get well soon, please don’t go any higher.”

I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday! This week has been a busy one, but I’ve set out a plan to get all of my midterms completed and still have some spare time for myself and to spend with my friends. I have some exciting things lined up for Fall Break, and knowing I have a fun-filled long weekend quickly approaching makes working hard on my midterms a lot easier. I’ve gotten some big assignments off my plate and still have several coming up, but I’m trying to appreciate them while I have them… in less than two semesters, I’ll be graduating. 

“How are you so burnt when you’re barely on fire?”

The song for this week is “Malibu” by Hole; recently, I’ve found Hole’s music to be especially good to listen to on my runs and to pump me up and give me energy. It’s especially useful after long days of classes and powering me on my walk to class the next day after staying up late to do homework and setting time aside to socialize. Luckily, the classes that I am taking this semester are very interesting to me and the midterm assignments that I have are essays and projects where I am able to be creative. Still, focusing so heavily on schoolwork recently has left me feeling out-of-balance.

“Cry to the angels, I’m gonna rescue you.”

Midterms always seem to take about three weeks instead of one, and this year is no different. Having two extra days off for Fall Break this coming weekend is going to be very rejuvenating! I’m excited to see what my essays and projects end up looking like and everything I learn in the process of completing them. I also enjoy the idea of – very soon – restoring balance to my life, but until that moment comes, I am going to do my best to appreciate where I am. Hard work and a positive attitude will help me thrive!

“I’m gonna set you free tonight, baby, pour over me.”
