Things happen and you have to choose between apples and oranges.
Turns out, this post is more than just may cheesy way of using fruit to describe an in-depth look at my life, as hopefully, you will take something away from it as well. However, I finally hit this point in my life where I am given far too many opportunities and I am trying to balance everything, which brings me to this post.
Last week, the overwhelmingness of college, life, work, and literally everything else that I do crashed down on me and I got sick. Since moving to LA for college, there has just been so much to do on a daily basis that I literally feel terrible if I choose not to do something…but that’s just the thing. Too much of a good thing can in fact turn into a bad thing. Being sick SUCKED. I had to miss out on several cool opportunities because of my health, and even with the sickness, I still felt obligated to go do those fun things. Thankfully, I got better, but that doesn’t change the fact that I had learned that health is important and balancing life is key.
That’s when today comes in.
I am currently sitting outside of the film and television building waiting to go see Amy Adams. I can’t even believe that this is a real statement. However, to be here, I spent a lot of time talking to a couple of professors for the two classes I am actually missing to be here. Classes and grades are important, but my life hit this moment where I had to decide between attending those classes today or skipping them for the sake of a cool and rare opportunity. Thankfully, there weren’t any tests or quizzes and as it goes for homework assignments, I should be good. But nonetheless, as I sit here in total thankfulness for the nice ocean breeze from only a few miles away, I have determined that this whole thing has been a learning experience in itself.
Life hands us lemons, and our decisions may not even sound logical at first, but we all need to take a time to determine what is best for ourselves and choose accordingly.
I am glad that I made the decision that I did to be here and I know that I will be okay with classes. While I am not exactly saying that it’s okay to skip classes to attend cool things, I am saying that sometimes, it’s worth better determining what you think is best and just going off of that.
Have a wonderful and lovely day.
