Learning to Relax

Relaxing is the New Black

So I have officially be a “college graduate” for fifteen days, but who’s counting? I have come to the realization that I do not, cannot and will not understand a person who enjoys having nothing to do. For fifteen days, I have kept myself busy by applying to relevant positions, fantasizing about which city I will live in and pretending like I have the funds to purchase a new car (I test drove an Accent and almost bought a Mazda3).  I cannot fathom having to do nothing for the remainder of my life…I’d go crazy!

I suppose this is a strength and a weakness. In the PR world, having the ability to continuously work for hours on end is, by no stretch, a con. But what happens if, like now, I find myself in a period of unemployment? I’m going stir-crazy. Thank goodness for my part time gigs. Big love to Dell and Tuttleman Computer Lab at Temple University.

Slowly and surely (I think), I am learning to relax. When I first graduated, I would wake up panicked that I was missing an important class, was late for my bus to New York City, had to meet my group for a presentation…but alas, I had nothing to do. Now, I am finally sleeping through the night and am actually SLEEPING IN! I haven’t been able to sleep in since freshman year of college (I used to be a pro).

But I’m positive, as soon as I relax, take  a deep breath and begin enjoying the life of nothingness, I will have agencies knocking down my door (or so I hope).
