It’s been a while, so I just wanted to make a quick post assuring you that I am both alive and (relatively) well.
I’m nearly a month into my final semester at Cornell and I reek of Senioritis. All of my courses are interesting and engaging enough, but my mind is fully elsewhere; focused on what lies beyond my mosey across that graduation stage and into the colloquially termed “real world.” The fact that I am also currently in the throes of the job search only adds to my struggle to settle down academically. It seems that my academics and my applications are at odds, which should not be the case, but alas, it is.
When February break arrives, which is a new convention of our school calendar that I’m very much pleased with, I’ll be assessing my lack of focus/motivation and taking steps to remedy it. I’ve come too far to screw up this late in the game. I’ll also be doing a fair amount of writing over break, as I have first drafts of a pilot script and a novella due in the upcoming weeks. I intend to submit more than a few job applications, as well.
So, there you have it: the current state of my life. Please pray for me, send me positive thoughts, and wish me luck as I attempt to make it through this crazy, busy, transitional time in my life in one piece.
