    Distracted by the Wind

    Over the past couple of weeks, I have felt a strong inclination to study out distractions more in depth. It is something that seems so minuscule and unworthy to address at times, after all, distractions seem to be temporary and fleeting most of the time, right? The new job that demands your attention, the difficult classes that require your full concentration, a relationship that commands devotion, and just figuring out what the future may hold can cause anxiety or apprehension. All of these examples seem to take our minds to a different place, seemingly for just a short amount of time. That’s the problem though; the word “short” is a very…

    Mundane Lifestyle, Extraordinary Mission

    Hey y’all! It has been a crazy couple of weeks with scheduling and time management, and I’m sure many can relate to the feeling of being constantly on the go. No time to rest, no time to breathe, no time to just relax and enjoy life. Days start bleeding together and soon a whole week has passed and that essay isn’t done, that studying didn’t happen, that shift at work wore you thin, and you have become completely distracted from the main mission at hand. What’s the mission I’m speaking of? We’ll get to that later… As I said before, over the past few weeks, it has been very hectic…
