A little too busy

What I’ve learned from being such a busy bee is that it’s not good to be too busy. People have their own reasons for trying to be as busy as they could be; maybe they’re having family problems, they’re trying to forget about a certain past, or they simply just love being busy. For me it’s mostly just the love of meeting new people and being active. But there would be times when my autopilot turns on, and I wouldn’t have time for myself. I would forget to play with the xbox homies that certain time of the night, or I would forget that the NBA playoffs was on. Being too busy affects the quality of work, and when it comes to accomplishing tasks, it’s always quality>quantity. Having an amazing show>having 3 decent ones. Xbox>PS3. Just kidding ps3 fans, that has nothing to do with the subject, but yea you get the point.  There are days where I’d rather hang out on the top floor of a library parking lot and write in a journal than …

Consistency

I think one of the things we fear the most is consistency. When you’re a funny dude, people expect you to be funny all the time. If you’re a 4.0 student, everyone is shocked when they find out you have a C. We’re pretty much labeled to our accomplishments and acknowledgements, and it turns into an expectation that others naturally notice. It’s like we feel obliged to meet those expectations, and if we don’t, we beat ourselves up for it. This is especially if they are already set so high, and you can’t even keep up with yourself. I feel like these are one of the pressures that high schoolers have to deal with all the time.
