Too Much Running Through My Head

It's been a long and rocky semester, I'm not going to lie.

I feel like I'm losing my mind all the time, I'm stressed to the point that I can't eat, I've gotten really skilled at crying in public...

I don't know.

It feels like I'm constantly being punched in the gut, but I'm bouncing back.  I'm over letting it get me down, it's just reached the point that it's frustrating that I can't blossom like I know I should be able to.

I miss writing and reading.  I stress too much about school.  I don't take time to do the things I love.

So that's where I've been.  I feel stuck in this misplanted state.  Not quite a New Yorker, but going home to Nebraska is scary.  Do I belong anywhere anymore?  I have to say I'm not sure.

But at least I know who I am.  I know I love what I am doing, I love where I am going, I just need to step out of the gloop and run into the sunset.  Because clearly my life is a romantic comedy.

I know how much of a kickass badass I am.  But it's winter, getting cold, sprinting into finals...and life gets difficult.  Going home to an emptier Christmas is daunting.

But the only thing I can change is my attitude.  And how well I can take care of myself.
So it's off to massage time and then powering through work so that Thanksgiving break can be all I hope it will be.  I have never been more determined to be happier.  And that starts with telling you all-- anyone who reads this-- how sad I have been.

You can't ignore the past if you want to move forward.

more later.

Meet The Author

I'm Madysen, born and raised in Nebraska but now living out my dreams in New York City. I moved here to go to Columbia, but living in New York has become so much more to me. This blog is a space where I can share my experiences of reconciling my midwestern upbringing with the life I live in the city. But even bigger than that, this blog serves as a space where I can try to understand where I fit into the larger social world, where I want to go in life, and how I want to go about pursuing all of these endeavors.
