September Reflection

September was a blur of school and work and more school and more work. Throw in a dozen or so pumpkin spice lattes and one too many moments of impulse shopping (see: my navy and black lipsticks, my little Zara bag, and more food than I'm used to) and you'll get the past four weeks or so. Truly, the month as flown by, which is pretty typical with how my months have been going as of late. I feel like every time I sit down to write these reflections posts, I blank on what happened during the month. Did anything happen?

This was a month full of binge watching Quantico and Say Yes to the Dress with my roommates, of being a little too weird when we get a bit too delusional, of learning how to let myself relax, or at least somewhat relax. It's been a month of go, go, go, but perhaps with less pressure to perform this time around. I feel like I constantly live in that go, go, go mentality, but what I do with my free time generally dictates how I feel at the end of the day. I've erased some pressures from that free time, which truly just gives me a few hours without those worries weighing down on me.

This post isn't to say that this month went by without any moments where I just wanted to curl up into a ball and take a whole week off. Obviously, that's not a possibility, but some things had the opportunity to set me off this month and I'm happy that they didn't. I guess that's growing up, not letting the littles things get to you anymore. I'm still working on that, but this month seemed to be a decent test.

We're another month closer to graduation, another month closer to the next phase of my life. It's a bit wild to think of it that way, that in two months and a couple of weeks I'll be done with this phase of my life that has been all I've known for the past three years. It's going to be weird, for sure, but there are other milestones to pass first. I reached my one year anniversary at my job a week or so ago and I turn 21 on the 21st of November. What a day for a golden birthday, am I right? I have friend's birthdays to celebrate through, I have exams to study for and papers to write, I have a Halloween costume to plan...October should be a fun month! Here's to hoping I can remember more specifics next time around. I probably won't, but let's see if this end to my September reflection will hold me accountable...
