Growing Up...

This is just a quick journal that i just wanted to think out. One of the hardest things about college and now has been this transfer of all the sudden being accountable to my time management. I absolutely despise it. Somewhere along the lines of going to college i started to take on this thought. I have so many things that i want to do and there really is not enough time in the day to do all of it... or at least so it seems. Anyways, i start to feel this guilt and pressure that i have to get everything done and it just isn't realistic and it keeps me from just enjoying what i am doing. Before this point i would just do what i was doing... football, hangout with friends, homework when i wanted, etc. Now it is a opportunity cost that seems to be a triangle between relationships, work, activity(sports, workout, etc.). I will write back with an update soon, but your suggestions/thoughts are appreciated. At church last night, Miles McPhereson had a insight i continually learn that if you are living for other people and not yourself a lot of the small problems seem to go away... just thinking out loud.
