I'm quite tempted to use a baseball analogy here, since these photos were taken on a baseball diamond, so if you'll allow me just one, I would like to say that I can't help but feel that I haven't been "stepping up to the plate" this semester. I feel like I've been taking the easiest way out a lot lately, when it comes to papers or readings or class participation. I feel like all of my papers have been subpar -perhaps singles rather than home runs? I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself - and I'm sure my teachers would agree. It's disconcerting because I feel like every semester I get more and more rundown, less and less excited about the work I'm doing. My first year in college, I pushed myself really hard and I think it payed off. Now, I'm almost done with my second year and I can't help but feel like a bit of a failure. I've been doing all my work, but even as a I view these last two and half papers I have to get done I can't help but feeling like they won't come out well, like I've given up on putting a lot of work in to my psychology class because it's frustrated me so much and I feel like I haven't come very far at all.
Maybe it's too early to be reflecting on these sorts of things, since I still have two weeks to get through, but it's been weighing on my mind all day so I thought I would write about it. I wore this outfit last week, on a day when it was too cold for shorts. I was a little antsy about wearing a sweater with shorts, but I often wear items together that are meant for separate seasons, so I think this turned out alright.
