Do you ever feel like your life is one big, emotional rollercoaster?

As I was walking home from the student center today, I realized just how utterly perfect this moment in my life truly was. For one of the few times in my life, I felt that everything was going my way, that things could not possibly get much better. I am surrounded by perfect weather, perfect thoughts and emotions, and most importantly, perfect and irreplaceable relationships that mean the world to me. As most of you know, I'm not an overly religious person, but it was at a moment like this that I felt deeply humbled and blessed by the situation that my life is in at this moment. There have been a few wonderful people that I have met recently, one in particular, that have quickly become some of my closest and most cherished friends. I guess I just count myself lucky to have started all of these great new friendships with people and still have all of the great friends that have decided to stick with me (bribery works wonders... :P). Wow, I really need to invest in some cheap, cheesy, romantic music to play on the background for these mushy entries...

All was well...until I got home...then reality hit.

I have a HUGE project due on Monday for my Social Studies Education methods class. This project requires multiple hours of work and will most likely take up a great deal of my free weekend. I have to work from 5:30 p.m. to midnight tonight, get back up Saturday and train a whole bunch of people at my work from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., then work from noon till about 8 p.m. or so. I will most likely have to come home and work on said project for a considerable amount of time, then hopefully go out for whatever short amount of fun I can allow myself this weekend. I then work at 11 a.m. on Sunday until about 4 p.m., with the remainder of the day being used to complete the project. Sometime during this weekend, I also have to finish a History report, finish my observation/teaching journal, and finalize hotel plans.

Do you see the dilemma? I have all of these great things surrounding me, yet no time to enjoy them. Between work and school, 90% of my time has been accounted for and taken away. I feel that my life has the opportunity to be so much more fulfilling and fun, but my hands are tied. When I am around my friends and out enjoying myself, I really feel like the luckiest and happiest person in the world. When I go to work and school, all of this happiness slowly fades away until I am back to regular old Jason *eek :P*, just trying to get through things. How do I balance this? How do I stop the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs (if you consider my downs a REAL down...you all know that even when I'm down, I'm still optimistic) in my life? I know, I know... "WORK LESS HOURS CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!" Well thank you :). I don't know the point of this post. I guess it's just good to let people know how I'm feeling sometimes, what is going through my head. Anyway...

Have a great weekend everybody! Hopefully I will update again before Spring Break hits, but if not, ENJOY YOURSELVES, BE SAFE (BUT NOT TOO SAFE.. :D), and most importantly, make sure to get all of the sand out of your crack. Laterz :)
