Most people never get there. They're afraid or unwilling to demand enough of themselves and take the easy road, the path of least resistance. But struggling and suffering, as I now saw it, were the essence of a life worth living. If you're not pushing yourself beyond the comfort zone, if you're not constantly demanding more from yourself—expanding and learning as you go—you're choosing a numb existence. You're denying yourself an extraordinary trip.
**This makes me feel bad. ... Makes me think that maybe I should go to the It'sHardInThe Valley Cross Country Meet tomorrow. But then I remember how bad I feel and that I have snot dripping out of my nose and that I had a nosebleed this morning and that it is on my sleeve. And I remember, that sometimes, you also have to just take care of yourself.
I don't want to be sick next week. I have a soccer game in Nashville on Tuesday and I want to be able to bond with my team on the long trip LOL. This is only the second cross country meet, AND I'm getting better. I don't want to ruin that by getting sick AGAIN.
So I'll be okay. I'm going to set out a sort of a schedule for the remaining 20 minutes of Study Hall and study some. Hence, the STUDY HALL. I just have to email Coach now. And I plan on doing that after school. Yes, I DO believe that that is a healthy form of procrastination. It'll just stress me out if I do it right now. And I have no reason to worry. He doesn't bite. he just talks and talks and talks and talks.
Ps. Aren't you all SO PROUD of me??? I actually posted something other than a quote of the dayze yesterday! I'm so excited! I'm back in the Magpieing!! I cannot cannot cannnnnnnot wait till next week. It'll be great. :)
