Autumnal Musings

Monday, September 19, 2016

Though it doesn't quite feel like it yet, autumn is (finally) just three days away. Is anyone else also overwhelmed by the fact that September is two weeks from ending? A new season is around the corner, and a new month is close behind. I'm personally more than happy to welcome the newness as a reminder to continue progressing.

This has been my first officially year spent adulting, and it's safe to say I've had my fair share of both highs and lows. There are times when I find myself getting wrapped up in the monotony of urban working life, a feeling I never want to make permanent. 

When we're students it feels like everyone pushes us to do more - learn more, participate in more, and experience more. It's funny how once we leave school we become our only motivators, and suddenly we appreciate those external pressures. As the new season approaches, I've committed to taking some unfamiliar classes and continuing to make time for new experiences even when it feels like I have none. Here's to finishing out the year on the highest note yet. What are you looking forward to this fall?
