Week one didn’t have much going on, but I absolutely loved seeing everyone else’s posts and what they had to talk about, it’s pretty cool seeing how different everyone views the world around them. This week was obviously getting everyone acclimated to their new classes and for some getting used to being back on campus. For me, all of Jan I have been on Federal mission with the Army Reserves to help assist in Washington DC. It’s been a long draw out mission that hasn’t felt very necessary, but for my unit being so close, in Virginia and being an Infantry unit we were more needed than others and I can’t argue that. It has been fairly tough keeping up with everything due to lack of accessibility to technology and internet, but I’ve been doing my best to stay on top of my work and make the circumstances work for me. They are quarantining all college soldiers who will be returning to civilian life and that’s been the toughest part considering my lack of communication with the outside world and lack of fresh air and sun. But none the less I’m looking forward to progressing in this class and I know it might be tough at times but I’m getting so close to being done that I think I can push through anything at this point so long as I can get the hell out of quarantine.
The only work we have done this week is our introduction and blog about our story. Both were valuable and fun with some good learning outcomes when it comes to getting to know the software we will be working with and the people we’ll be with in this class. I didn’t get to complete my YouTube or Soundcloud intros yet because of my lack of technology, but I haven’t given up yet. I’m still working hard to figure that out and when I do they can be found on the accounts above.
This was certainly an interesting theme to ponder upon for the first week of class. I feel that this could go into a lot of detail, but then again maybe that’s it’s intended purpose. I can’t say I’ve been through a whole lot or suffered tremendously in life because I haven’t….Of course everyone has their own ups and downs while exploring what their life will consist of, but I think I’ve finally decided what I want this theme to cover. Living beyond time.
Now let me explain. There are too many people that live in this world today sheltered by what the world tells them to believe. I myself have gotten trapped in this never ending cycle; do I have enough money? Where do I go to school? Will these people like me? I neeeeed a 9-5 right? Do I need a 4 year degree? or further??? How will I live? Where will I live!? We spend more time thinking about how we will spend our time than just getting out and living the life that is right in front of us. All it takes is that first step. I’m pushing myself for some pretty big goals in 2021 and writing them down and throwing them out into the world can’t hurt. I want to explore and adventure the world with my favorite people and my best friend, and that has to start somewhere. I don’t know! Fuck around and try some new things! It can’t hurt! Explore new ideas, but don’t give up on them. If there is one thing I’ve learned it’s that when you have an idea and want to act upon it, it’s better to do so without thinking long and hard about it, jump in and figure the rest out later. Realize how young you are and how much time is ahead of you. You don’t want to be 90 years old and looking back on your life with regret, trust me. Don’t wait around for the perfect timing…It doesn’t exist. Do now, and never look back.
I think I kinda answered this theme/ assignment. Speaking of assignments, if you don’t wanna be in school, don’t waste your time and money doing something you hate. School will always be there, the memories you could have had… won’t. Chase hobbies and the things you love in life, don’t live with blinders on for the rest of it.
Okay, I think I’m actually done. That’s the theme. Live life with no regrets. You can make more money, you can’t make more time.
Jeez! It’s been a while since I used this platform for posting anything school related, but we made it!
