Have you ever felt like you’re doing maybe just a bit too much throughout the day and sometimes forget to breathe? I know I have. Heck, I’m actually doing it right now.
There’s not much to say about my absence. My final year in college has just been busy.
And this is where the blog will truly start.
There’s this thing called “society” and some, if not most, of us want to try to live up to its set of approvals known as “standards.” And there’s been a good bit of controversy about women lately; yes, including feminism.
I’m not here to preach about that since I don’t personally think that it has anything to do with being a hustlin’ hot mess.
Nowadays, there’s more support for women who hustle and become their own heroin. And that’s awesome- though, yes, there can be times when people take it a bit too far and get all offensive and it all becomes a bit chaotic but we’re going to avoid that side of this, okay? Okay.
Personally, I enjoy hustling. I do get tired at the end of the day. I don’t believe that sleep is for the weak. Sleep is for those like myself to not become a scarier version of Godzilla 24/7. Anyway, I would rather be tired at the end of the day, knowing that I’ve been productive than to be tired from being unproductive. Also, I kind of enjoy checking off things I’ve done in my planner. There’s just that sense of satisfaction from it that I’ve come to enjoy.
This semester is almost halfway over. I know some of you probably didn’t want that reminder, but get over it ’cause it’s happening. Midterms are approaching us. *Dun dun dun*
This is somewhat irrelevant but if you’re in college and you want to build your resume/character by deciding to take a leadership role in an organization at your university, 1. take it seriously (if your role seems “too easy,” I suggest you to google what the responsibilities you actually need to take on and actually try to do them because it’s not enough to just say you were ______ of an organization. You’ll need to be able to back it up with responsibilities you took, and etc.) 2. make sure you have time to take care of other priorities (in other words, make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. Most organizations require more from you than to just show up at meetings. Chances are, you’ll be expected to participate in a variety of events. Be sure that you have time to put effort in the organization while juggling classes, work, family, friends, etc.)
With that being said, maybe I didn’t know those things when I look on a leadership role. But, you live and you learn. I’ve sort of like being a hustler. I mean, Beyonce is a hustler. And who doesn’t like Beyonce?
Okay, look; there’s nothing wrong with being able to take care of yourself and wanting to have personal achievements. Don’t E V E R let A N Y O N E tell you otherwise. I mean it. And you’re not a hustler, then that’s cool too. You do your own thing as long as you’re happy, healthy, and kind. Non-hustlers may continue to read, though. I mean you’ve read this much already so why stop now? Heh.
I just enjoy getting things done and achieving goals, no matter how big or small. Simple as that. Okay, also some of those small achievements can lead to a really big achievement that can be pretty awesome.
But you know, there will be some people who will tell you can’t do things and you’re just gonna have to ignore them, no matter how important they were to you before. If they decide to not believe in you, then why should they be there with you when you prove them wrong and become successful in any shape or form?
I find it easier to ignore family members and old friends/acquaintances that don’t have faith in me. It’s mostly an “out of sight, out of mind” ordeal; my relatives lives at least an hour away and visitation doesn’t happen often (though, I do miss some of them dearly. My schedule just conflicts with plans a lot). I also just don’t see old friends/acquaintances that often.
But Danni, what about a person of interest?
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget. Hah. Now here’s the thing: you know how to be happy and live your life before they came into the picture. You have to remember that. You shouldn’t just drop everything for a “person of interest.” I strongly don’t believe in doing that.
I feel that a “person of interest” is someone you’re kind of testing the waters with. Yes, go on dates with this person when you have some free time. But do NOT try to clear your schedule for this person. He/she is not a priority yet. If this person gets mad at you for, oh I don’t know… writing a research paper that may determine whether or not you fail a college course instead of hanging out with him/her then you need to either makes things clear with this person that you have priorities and want to have a great future ahead or just end things with the person in a mature manner. But if this person truly likes you and he/she will understand and try to work something out with you, then maybe he/she has potential. Of course there are other factors that go into determining whether or not you two are compatible but I’m not really one to give big relationship advice, unless specifically asked. I’ll give some small advice every now and then, though. 😀
In conclusion, just be your own boss to your life. ‘Cause I believe in you. If you do feel overwhelmed, there’s nothing wrong with taking a break to rest your mind. And also try to eat a good, healthy meal. I know it’s hard for college students to do so (I feel the struggle… hard) but just try. 🙂
May the force of hustlin’ be with you and the force of procrastination stay far, far, far away!
