friday!!! wahoo! =] just a few more hours and then I will be over and done with my ancient babylonian seminar, then it's friday, the last schoolday of the week! As I write this, I have a big fat smile on my face because something about the weekend is so therapeutic.
and that's nice!
...what exactly do I do during the weekend? As I am writing this, I am beggining to realize that that I just plain...don't do much. I remember at the beginning of the year, I made the conscious decision to not inundate myself in extracirriculars like sports, clubs, jobs, etc. Sure, I considered it perfectly acceptable to join a club here or there that catch my attention, but I wanted to be sure that my studies were my number one priority. Fast forward a month and a half later and I am starting to get the feeling that it worked out all too well.
During Calapalooza, I distinctly remember wandering the vastly populated grassland called memorial glade, browsing just about every single organization's booth in an attempt to discover the club/sport that would be "just right" for me. I took flyers and signed mailing lists from all sorts of clubs; circle K, cal lightweight crew, wonderworks, cal triathalon, cal running club, dragonboating, cooking club, etc. The following weeks, I checked out cal tri, cooking club, running club, circle k, and dragonboating. Although I have enjoyed participating in most of these activities, none of them felt "right" for me. The main reason I didn't join Cal tri is becuase there is a $200 membership fee and I don't own a bike here. I have stopped by running club a few times but I much prefer to run in the mornings (cal runing club meets at 5:30). I'm a little confused as to how to sign up for cal cooking, and dragonboating tires me out quickly. I know these may sound like wimpy excuses, but I really have not felt a strong connection to any of the organizations I have considered joining.
Which has left me with a list of classes, and a lot of blank spaces, on my weekly schedule.
It's not that I don't want to involve myself in extracirriculars; I actually really want to involve myself in at least a few organizations that I enjoy. But maybe I am afraid of the commitment that comes with gettting involved.
Either way, I have decided that I am going to try to give extracirriculars another shot. I would love to get involved in some sort of sport again, and having a job would be nice as well. Hopefully it's not too late for me to get join either!
