The Limbo Between School and the Job

I’ve been done with school for a little over 2 weeks now and life has been interesting. I have a job with a great starting salary and benefits though the trade-off is that I start really early (on June 6). I passed all my classes and am simply awaiting graduation ceremonies to begin.

My parents and little brother will be up here. Also, my two uncles and their families will be here from India and Australia. That’s really exciting!

The other prevailing feeling is a sense of lethargy. It’s finally hitting me that I’m done and when I take a moment to ruminate on the results I feel burned out. I want to continue working with what I’ve learned to develop solutions for the world but I don’t have the energy. I want to take these last few days I have with my fellow seniors to make sure I spend time with them but I don’t have the capacity to be social. I’m not even doing something I enjoy like playing video games because I just don’t have the desire to play, and when I force myself it’s not fun.

This is compounded by the fact that moving is difficult. I just want everything to be done with so that I can move on with life and my ambitions but the move is proving to be extremely complicated. As it stands I’m supposed to put all my things into storage, go down to Florida for 2 weeks, then move all the way back up to Salem, VA via car. That just sounds excruciatingly exhausting but it’s also the only way to spend time with family. At the same time I have restrictions from the apartment renting process and a wedding that is making planning anything solid nearly impossible.

Today I will take steps to tackle this mountain in front of me one step at a time. I refuse to let this stop me. I refuse to be weak. I will get everything I need to do done and I will recover and achieve greatness in life. I will also post more now that the hiatus has been broken.

in Life: T-minus 2 days until school!

I’ve been very busy packing things and making sure I’m not forgetting anything for school. As a result my posting has slowed down a bit. I haven’t decided how often I want to commit to posting during the school year but I think that a conservative once-a-week estimate will be good to make sure I can post regularly and also ensure good academic performance.

Here are things you can expect: band camp shenanigans, schoolwork ramblings, new thoughts from meeting new people, and more. But I really do have to focus on schoolwork so a weekly or biweekly posting cycle would benefit. I think the most interesting thing in the coming school year will be recruitment fairs, job interviews, and other after-graduation issues. Wish me luck!

In the mean time I made a new song parody (this time of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”) so check that out. This’ll be the last time I can post until I’m moved in which should be approximately this coming Sunday or Monday depending on how long it takes exactly.
