I’m running out of time

Long time no seeing. Sorry by the title you may notice I’ve been a little busy to post, still that is no excuse. Because when you love doing something you create the time to dedicate. So, here’s what’s been going on lately. I’ve been studying for college, working from 9 to 7 and going to the gym if I still have time on the day, I enjoy going because it’s always good to keep that energy and do some physical stuff. Anyways moving on and forward. I want to talk about time.

As you can tell I’ve been running out of it, no I’m not dying, at least to my knowledge. But in this moment of my life is when I appreciate and value the most the worth of time. People have no idea how much time they waste doing meaningless stuff, and I’ve finally realized how much time I’ve spent on social media when I could be doing something better just like reading a book. I don’t know much about what’s been happening in the world, I haven’t even had time to binge watch my series or the new movie from Rebel Wilson, “Isn’t it Romantic?” (which one of my dearest friends recommend to me, you know who you are, thank u), just today I found out about the passing of Luke Perry and it’s so sad. I haven’t been talking with my friends, I just don’t have the time because it’s not like I don’t want to talk to them is hard because when I finally have some time it’s too late. I’ve also been working on my scholarship process, been applying to some universities in other countries. College and work don’t do both your social life, mental and physical health will be the most affected by it. You can do it, but you’ll have to do some sacrifices. That’s what hurt me the most, having to sacrifice things I love but it’s for bigger purpose. I had to give up my Sundays, I used to go to church and help in the service for the little kids and it filled my heart with joy seeing their beautiful faces, making them smile. At least for now I had to place on stand by some of the things I love.

There’s something about time that had an impact on my life and it’s how little we have. There are only 24 hours in a day, I have to work 10, need to sleep 8, 2 for the gym or 1 and a half, and 2 for homework and studies, the left 2 for family and friends. If you ask me, it’s not so easy. I want to quit college and I’m in my first semester, third month and I feel like I can’t handle it no more. I started thinking of ways I can save some time, I’ve been doing homework in my work place. It’s a good thing because when I came home, I don’t have to worry about that. I also think it’ll be easier if I just learned how to drive so I don’t have to wait for my dad to come for me at work.

All this chit chat about time got me thinking and doing some reflection. What am I doing with my life? I have goals and I don’t want to waste my time living my life doing stuff I don’t enjoy, or living someone else’s life. It’s just dumb, we all are going to die at some point, better have fun and behave just a little bad. If there’s something you can recycle is wasted time and the time that’s been lost can’t never be found again, every moment of our lives happens at the same time it dies. So, to conclude, what are you doing with your life right now? At this moment are you happy? Will you have enough time to do everything you have planned? Are you getting closer to the sky or the ground doing stuff you don’t like? Is this the moment you want to live, before it’s gone?
