Y'all know I don't get too wordy here on the blog. I'm quite a visual person. But sometimes you gotta lay it all out.
Here's how this post was born:
1. Run around like a crazy chicken all week, working and getting organized.
2. Realize Thursday night after forgetting about an important meeting that I'm not actually organized.
3. Stay up trying to get organized.
4. Realize I've been sick all week and need to get to bed at a decent hour because I work 11 hours tomorrow.
5. Try to unplug and get to bed.
6. Have too many thoughts running around.
7. Ask myself, "How the frick do I unplug??"
Let's break it down here. I need sleep. When you're sick and you don't realize it, it hits you at the most inopportune time. For instance, as you're gearing up for the potentially most terrifying year of young adult life -- your senior year of college.
This summer, I've been pretty happy working my 9 to 5 with my internship and regular job. When the internship ended and I started my second job, it was still pretty easy to schedule the two around each other. Add in classes + club meetings + personal life and you start to have a problem. Things don't add up perfectly ever. This isn't a "my life is hard" post, but rather a "life is difficult so you better buck up and take a chill pill once in awhile" post.
When you've got a million things on your plate, emails piling up, a to-do list longer than you are tall, and the world's most attractive men on TV, how do you unplug at the end of the day and stay healthy -- mentally and physically?
I think this is how you're supposed to do it. But I'm no expert.

I really want to know, how do you unplug?
