I start my senior year of college on Tuesday. I’m not sure how I made it with my sanity this far. I’m not sure how I’ll make it with sanity this year. 

This semester I have 30 hours of class a week, 10 hours of on campus work, 3 hours of student observations, 3 hours of community engagement, and 6 hours of off campus work a week. 

I have two senior projects to finish by the end of the semester. One is my dance project and the other is my Liberal and Civic Studies project. My group for L&CS is my three closest friends on campus and two of them also have dance projects. Because we are spending so much time with each other, they have designated a drawer for allergen free food in one of their dorm rooms. I also have permission to nap or spend the night in any of their rooms whenever needed. 

Being a leader for the community engagement organization on campus as well as a senior leader in dance company and my TFT program is going to be very stressful but I can do it. My resume is going to be very beautiful after this.

I need to learn to say no…

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

The difference from this summer to this year has been from “others first always” to “you can’t serve others if you aren’t ok. you first.” Revolutionary. And a breath of fresh air. 

On a similar subject, I am so hungry I can’t do anything but I am so tired that I can’t go make food. I really don’t want to order out or go out but I’m all out of food besides rice and bread and flour and pb.

I don’t understand why these girls are freaking out so much. It isn’t like they were all sooooper busy all summer. It also isn’t like they are all taking 10 classes that are each 3 hours a week. Nor are they enrolled in two classes which require outside service or observation hours totalling 60 hours this semester. Nor do they all have 10 hour a week jobs or 6 hour a week 2nd jobs. And none of them have chronic illnesses or serious food allergies. I think they can get their creative juices flowing and stop feeding off of each other’s nervousness to start our senior show.

i hit my coworkers shoulder lightly and he was like “you’re going to make me cry like a girl” and i was like “what’s wrong with being a girl?” and he was quiet for a moment then he looked into the distance and whispered “the social standards they’re forced to live by”

Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”

So I got home tonight after over 24 hours of not being at home and my housemate immediately said to me “I haven’t seen you since yesterday morning you obviously haven’t eaten or slept there is rice and corn in the fridge do you want some milk to help you sleep?”

What’s great is that all of the staffers in the organization I work for are moms and they sent me home with an entire loaf of gluten free bread after dinner tonight and I came home to my 53 year old housemate still trying to feed me. She also assumed that I haven’t slept since yesterday morning (which I barely have considering we got up at 6 to help freshmen move in) and it’s hilarious that I pay her to stay in her house but not to feed me and she continuosly brings me food.

When asked what I was excited about for my new job this year, I answered that I was excited to actually be getting a key to the office and a nametag. Two things that were not provided to me last year because my position apparently didn’t require it. ver. Obviously my priorities are in the right place.

"I told Miyazaki I love the “gratuitous motion” in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.

"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally.”

Is that like the “pillow words” that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?

"I don’t think it’s like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.
