Sloooow it Down

Have you heard the song Us Against the World by Coldplay? Well, there's this one line and it goes;
Sloooo-ooo-ooo-oow it down.
Simple, right? Well, that's what I feel like singing. Honestly, I'm having troubles balancing life right now. It's all good, and stuffs, but I'm constantly busy and tired.
Here's what's been going down; for the past 2 weekends, and this upcoming weekend, I've had a photoshoot booked. After the photoshoot, I also have all these pictures I need to edit to get done in a week. Which wouldn't be a big deal, right? That is if I didn't have 2 papers to write each week (one for Theater, one for Creative Writing), Oceanography activity sheets and in my case tomorrow: a test, Spanish online homework and workbook homework, a play to read each week, and essay questions/readings for American Literature. That's just the homework, and I feel like I'm constantly doing that on Mondays/Wednesdays. I also have my Oceanography class on Mon/Wed. Then, I have to try to balance time to spend with my sisters as I've tried to make that a bigger commitment to spend time with them and love them, which I do on Monday nights. Tuesdays/Thursdays I have an hour and 40 minute Spanish class, An hour and 15 minutes American Lit. Class on Tues/Thurs, and lastly 2 hour and 40 minute Theater class on Tuesday evenings. Wednesday nights I have church. Thursday nights, I have dance class. Fridays, beautiful Fridays, I have off. But, I still usually have work to do, as well as appointments( such as allergist, dentist, etc.) , and now making sure I get the photos edited before Sunday is up. Then, I also try to balance my social life as I don't get to see my friends as often as I did in the Summer when I actually had free time and free evenings. So, I try to cram that in the weekends. And then there's family time. And then there's church on Sundays. And soon to be dance rehearsals for Holiday performances on Sunday afternoons.
So, my life is so busy.
And I can't wait to get a break.
 'Cause I really need one, and it's only been like a month into school.
Mind you, some of the days can be fun, but I always feel like I'm doing something or need to be doing something.
I want a day where I know I have nothing going on and I can choose to spend it how I like.
But I thought I'd explain to you the reason why I'm hardly on here.
'Cause I know, I've been really vacant.
I want to be on here, because I want to share writings and thoughts and messages and get inspired, but I feel like I don't even have time for that.
 I barely have free time of my own to write and draw and create and make inspiring things.
So, most likely, posts from me are going to be sporadic.
 And I won't get offended if you don't always comment or check on them.
 Because I know I haven't kept up with all of yours.
 Hopefully, one day, if things slow down, I will have the time again to blog regularly and check regularly.
 I hope I do.
But until then...
Have an amazing week and I will be back somewhat soon.


  1. Goodness! You do have a lot going on! I hope things will settle down enough for you to breathe and be your creative self as you need to- it is so important to find time for this!

  2. Wow! busy lady! :) Hope things slow down for ya. Until then, I'm looking forward to your sporadic posts when they show up. :))) <3
    I've missed your lovely blog! Glad to be back to reading. <3 :)

  3. We've all experienced that busyness before. It's always kind of a bummer but I'm proud of you for prioritizing! Blogging is great for many reasons but when it comes down to it, family and friends is much more important.
