Keep Calm and Run On

18 Jan

I am in my last semester of college and in order to graduate seniors have to partake in an internship. I already have my location picked out and have been rearing to go for two weeks now. I am so very excited for all the experience I will gain and all the people I will meet along the way in the next few months.

In the past week and a half I have been on the phone, on the computer, and at every location imaginable in order to get the prerequisites squared away with the proper people so I can begin the internship.

Yesterday and today things kind of got out of order which would’ve caused a delay in starting the internship. I will admit, I was getting a little overwhelmed with working so hard getting things ready and all these little speed bumps popping up out of no where.

A wise guy once told me it is pointless to freak out and throw your hands in the air. Stay calm and find a solution.

While I did shed a tear for 5 minutes last night, I stepped away from the work that needed to be done (because it was a giant mess in my head and on my desk and it wasn’t going to go anywhere even if I had a solution because no one was in their office at that time anyway) and went to sleep.

On my way to my professors office this morning to try and fix my problem, I remembered that bit of advice that was given to me. Without even realizing what I had done I had taken that advise and applied it. I was a little proud of myself for pushing for what needed to be done rather than hoping that it would fix itself.

Thanks Dad.

Also, during that long walk across campus I had also realized that I needed to run, bad. I hadn’t run in 7 days. Running clears my mind and keeps me calm in situations that would otherwise upset me.


My week is starting to get better and I have fixed the problem . . . if you were wondering. Have a great rest of the week and RUN!

Run to clear your mind.

Run to maintain your reactions.

Run to maintain your weight.

Run to lose weight.

Run to run.

P.S. Dad, you gave me that advice when Molly locked herself in the car.
