As much as you try to plan things out and find a happy medium between everything, there is no denying that life just likes to get in the way sometimes.
Whether it's midterms or a tough break-up, it's very easy to lose focus of everything you set out to do.

With four full weeks left of my undergrad career, I'm not as concerned with planning out every detail quite yet--it is the season for grad parties, tough finals and goodbyes after all.
But when summer hits, I've got some big goals (including really getting this blog to take off!) and I wanted to share them so I'd maybe have some sort of standard to hold myself to...
GETTIN' IT TOGETHER - SUMMER 2012
My no bull-shit, stop-making-excuses training start day is quickly approaching (June 11) and I will truly have to dedicate myself to getting in shape for the Chicago Marathon in October. I'm kind of nervous seeing as how my true laziness has really shown itself these last couple months, but I just have to keep my eye on the end goal!
Landing this internship at the RedEye is an absolute dream come true! I can't wait to continue growing as a writer at a publication that I love to read.
Build a Balance
This baby has been in the works for quite awhile and I'm excited to have more time to pour my heart&soul into it.
This beautiful guitar taunts me day in and day out. All I want is to be able to pick it up and belt something out, but it usually ends in me walking away with disgust because I don't even know where to begin.
Not only am I dying to learn, but I also kind of owe it to my family seeing as how my Dad owns a guitar shop...it's just kind of shameful that I can't play.
With a little extra free-time that won't have to be spent doing homework (ooh sweet summertime), I definitely
want NEED to dedicate it to learning how to play this bad boy.
Also under music, I'm including: FESTIVALS. Definitely going to need some fun to add into the balance. I already have tickets to Lollapalooza (first-timer!) and need to get on snagging a pass for Spring Awakening too!
Along with these core-four, I can't wait to see what else the summer has in store...
