Blogging on a School Night

Its crazy that I have to be up at 6am for rotation and I’m still up, which is very unlike me. Its the first time in a while I’ve been unable to sleep and had to actually leave my bedroom because the tossing and turning for hours was so bad. I wonder if its just the accumulation of stuff on my mind: Finals. Girls. The Future. Getting a summer job. Did I mention acing my finals and girls? It seems like there’s just so much on my plate that it’s tough to know where to begin. Hopefully I’ll figure it all out, in the matter of two weeks. I don’t have any other choice do I?

Priorities

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
 
– Robert Frost “The Road Not Taken”
 

In my friend’s car on the way to grab something to eat after exams, I got a text from a friend, saying there was a party going on tonight. The first reaction of any college student is most likely a “hell yea” type of response, which was mine, until the thought of a pharmacy lab and pharmaceutics midterm on Monday and medicinal chemistry final on Friday dawned on me, and reality set in. At that point I was leaning more towards going.

“Why do parties get in the way of studying?” I asked my friend.

“Actually, it could be studying that gets in the way of partying,” my friend replied.

And that made me wonder. This phrase is pretty much all about priority, and now that I think about it I’m both happy and depressed at my response.

In a sense, I’m probably another step closer towards maturing, which deserves a pat on the back. But when? I guess during my break in between reading my lab manual and pharmaceutics textbook.

You know, I think Robert Frost knew what he was talking about, right down to the sigh.

Greetings WordPress!

I come to you with open arms. I’ve been doing this blogging stuff for years now, dating back to the high school Xanga days. It seems with those and the countless other blogs, I’ve been slowly maturing and I hope this is just another step on the Blogger’s journey. I’ll be updating with a real post soon.
