I’ve made it to the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. The school year is over, and I’ve got all this time to myself. I spent the last three months looking forward to summer. Now that it’s here, I’m doing everything in my power to stave off boredom and subsequent loneliness.
Right now I’m spending Monday afternoon through Thursday afternoon in the cities. I sleep late, and do errands during the day. I go to the gym in the evening. I head up north on Thursday afternoon and stay until I wake up on Monday morning.
I’m thankful for this time off. It is a blessing. I will keep making plans and not allow my brain to spiral into worry. I know it requires less effort to keep afloat than it does to get unstuck.
