I've been sick for the past week, a sure sign that the seasons are changing. Where I live fall is almost in full swing and the leaves are starting to change colors more and more each day. It's been a hard, introspective sort of week but I'm hoping that this Sunday is going to be nothing but productivity. I've been taking comfort in day long napping, ghost story shows on TV, sweet tea in mason jars, soaking up any little bit of family time I can get, and exploring some of my favorite local places (like the bookstore featured above).

It's hard feeling stressed out and inadequate. It's so hard to keep academics where they need to be, a thriving social life, and deal with keeping your personal sanity. Everyone struggles for their own balance and this past week has definitely been one of struggle for me. 

Here's to just taking a step back and embracing all the struggle and the change and just doing the best we can.
