How I Balance Studying And Having A Social Life All At Same Time!?

Ever since Spring has sprung, this girl has had serious Big Diva Energy!
I am one of those people that thrives well when there is sunshine all around me! I am so glad that the cloud of Winter has vanished into the abyss and now I can twirl my little life away! Ha! Just kidding, I still have to be very responsible with my life but that doesn't mean I can't take time out for myself from time to time!  Ever since I have started gearing up to go back to graduate school, I feel like I things have been piling onto my plate more than usual. I don't have time for friends, to go to the movies, or even waste a Saturday away casually doing nothing! It's like my days are booked and loaded with no intention of actually slowing down. Now if there is one thing I have learned in my life it is this; the harder you work, the harder you will crash and often times that leads to days if not weeks of unproductivity! I don't know about you guys but we are a quarter way through the year which means we're halfway through 2019 so there are no games to be played right now! We all have to get our lives together and accomplish all of those goals that we set for the New Year! One of my biggest goals was to study harder and make time for friends! I think I have been doing pretty well in the studying department but not so well in the friend department! Hey, ya girl is NOT perfect but what I have been doing is making sure I am taking better care of myself. The truth of the matter is, I can't do everything by myself! This has been a hard pill to swallow but sometimes after I have a long day of studying and working, the first thing I want to do is sleep! *grabs pillows and covers to hibernate*
I am starting to realize that studying, and trying to socialize is nearly impossible! Yeah, I said it, impossible! I have a goal that I have to chase right now and Grad school has to be top priority! I feel like I am at a different phase in my life and I value my time more than ever. Grant it, I did have a gap year post-undergrad to do a bit of soul searching and now I have a very clear vision on what I am supposed to do with my life. And I don't know about you guys but once a vision becomes clear in my head,  I zoom in on it until it is fully accomplished! I do realize that sometimes my relationships may suffer a bit due to my laser tight vision strategy but I be having things to do and I just can't help that about myself! All I know is my studies have to come first, and play time comes last! Ugh, it hurt my soul to even say that last sentence! #ADULTINGHARDERTHANEVER But you guys, I will make sure that I am spending more time with my friends and family very soon! I'm trying to get my life together and sometimes that's hard to do when I have so many other obligations! I know I need to get better with taking breaks (this has always been my downfall) but I am making plans to make plans with my friends! Ha!

Anyways, that's all I have to say about that. Basically, I'm all work and no play right now and that's ok! I know my breaking points and when the time comes I'll be ready to spend the weekend doing nothing but until then, I have to crack open the books! Ha! See ya back here on the ole' blog tomorrow!

PS: There's a new "20-minute study with me" to become a teacher routine over on my channel!

Always Living and Forever Learning,
