Currently, I am writing from the Starbucks in Kingsburg. It has since been remodel, complete with new leather seat that am more than likely scuffing with the clip of my pocket knife. It has been almost four months since my time in this lovely central California town came to an end and I restarted my pursuit of a college degree.
I am feeling a wide range of emotions; however, they are mostly dulled by the mounting weariness of school. The culmination with semi late nights and earlier-than-normal-college-student morning are final showing it’s ugly face. The cortisol that the stress of school brings is wearing off and I am certain now that I am much more tired than I had let myself believe.
In the dull ocean of emotion (yes I did rhyme that on purpose) there are few familiar feelings. The feeling of sadness of leaving a constant community of likeminded individuals. Happiness for going home to see and be my family for an good amount of time (more than a week). It is always strange to have polarizing emotions at the same time.
I am looking forward to this time off from school and work. I think this is the longest down time I have ever had. I have a few projects I want to work on. More writing for sure, a couple of music things, and a few personal things.
All y’all who are traveling this season, Godspeed and safe travels!
