Lack of Spontaneity

College is an interesting time.

It is an extremely unique time. I am very grateful for being able to attend College. I am lucky enough to be able to go to University at all. Let alone, a school of the caliber that I am at.

Should I be complaining? Probably not. There are thousands of people who would do anything for the opportunity that I am presented with.

So my “complaining” is really unjustified.

I do not want to complain about the school. About the opportunity. Rather, I want to make a complaint about myself.

I have fallen into a system. A system that lacks spontaneity.

Here in college, there are routines. You wake up — work — go to class — eat — workout — go to class — work — eat — work — sleep.

That is all.

But it does not have to be all that there is. There is so much more to do in this world.

I try making a purposeful effort to escape that trap. I know just how short life is. Make every day count.
