I Need A Break

Hello friends, how’s it going? I hope you’re all doing really well.

So here’s the thing. I recently decided to be more consistent and post every Monday and Wednesday to my blog. YES BABY YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT! Every Monday and Wednesday you can catch a post here. BUT this is how I’m splitting them up:

Monday’s – Adventure posts (yanno for when i travel, go to concerts, try new things, etc)

Wednesday’s – My thoughts, recommendations, advice, life updates (today is wednesday so you know what that means)

Structure and organization. We all need it in our life’s and it feels better when they’re present. I need it and this is a step to getting my life together.

Okay.. back to the post. The title basically sums it all up. I NEED A BREAK.

From what you ask? Life. Unfortunately, I can’t just pause my life and sleep for 83 days straight. I’m sure in the future there will be an app for that, but for now, I shall wait.

No but let’s get serious for a quick second.. I need a break from school. As most of you may know, I’m a sophomore in college. I recently just finished the hardest semester of my life. And I know I’m super dramatic but I’m really not exaggerating this time.

I was taking 14 credit hours plus an internship plus a job. It was a lot and not going to lie, most days were not easy to get through. But I did. I survived.

“They had us in the first half, not gonna lie” – that one football player from that one interview

I also have been taking classes since I graduated high school. ALL semesters including summers back to back. And at this point, I am physically and mentally exhausted to the point it’s extremely difficult to focus or gather any motivation to get through a class/homework.

After talking it out with my parents and close friends, exploring all of my options, and sleeping on it… I decided to take a break from school for the rest of the year. I’m not dropping out, it’s just a break. Relax ya’ll.

I know there will be some judgement that comes with this decision. But get this, I. do. not. care. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. (love you all) I am doing this for my well-being. I am doing this for me.

With only a couple of classes away from graduating.. why now Claudia?

I don’t know. It’s just something I feel like I NEED to do. Is this a mistake? Maybe. Will this help me? Maybe. It’s still unclear. But I feel like if I’m going to make mistakes or drastically change my life, the time is NOW while I’m young and still have my whole life ahead of me. I know that sounds clichรฉ but it’s so true.

And why should I wait? It hurts to even think that in 10 years I could get tired of the life I’m living and by then it’ll be too late to change it. Not saying that it’s never too late to change, but you know what I mean.

I’m scared because this is something not in my norm. I usually just suck it up and deal with things. But I am tired of doing that. I need some time to myself, without the stress and anxiety of school holding me back for ONCE in my life. This is much needed and long time coming. I hope you all can understand that. Or at least respect it.

Of course with every decision there are consequences. But that’s the thing with taking risks, the consequences can be either good or bad. One thing I know for sure, I WILL learn from this.

So where will life take me these next 6 months? Only time will tell.

  1. Woah…that was touching, weirdly enough. I love how your making this spontaneous decision at such an awkward time but I can so understand how your feeling and where you’re coming from. Making that decision takes some guts, and while it’s only a break, it’s a big step. I just came across your blog and I can’t wait to see more of what you come up with because with what I’ve read so far, I’m pretty intrigued. Well done for making such a brave decision, and while it’s one that it probably pretty controversial, don’t listen to the haters. You do you and what is best and down let anyone talk you out of it. Good luck, I’ll definitely be following your updates โค

  3. Yes, in life there comes a situation when taking a break makes us a better individual.Break doesn’t means that we don’t do anything or just gets off from the things,
    most of the time during break we self introspect ourselves, to how we should face the life and also try to do new things with giving time to our life Goals too.Break is always fruitful. This is what i think, i may be wrong.
    So,You should not be worried buddy.
    Keep going…GodSpeedโ˜โœŒ๐Ÿ‘
