So, for my Spring Break in my Senior year of college, I'm going to be chilling at home, running errands and fixing my computer. Not exactly what I had hoped for, but hey, it could be worse.
I didn't exactly plan for things to work out this way. In fact, looking back, I didn't exactly plan for anything at all, which was a major mistake on my part. I just kind of figured lukewarmly that somebody would do something somewhere, and I'd just tag along. I think that's what everybody figured, and of course when that happens, nothing happens. I learned my lesson.
Somewhere in February, way too late, we all discussed going down to Panama City. It was me, Jack, Tim, Chris, and Derry that were all going, and seeing how its my senior year, I ended up being pretty enthusiastic about it. Still, I had my doubts, because these things never go smoothly. And sure enough the trip got canceled the first time when Jack and Tim pulled out.
Then, briefly, it looked like a last minute plan of Me, Chris, and Derry was going to be able to go. We even got hotel reservations and everything. But sure enough, something else came up, as neither of them could get out of work. Trip off, and it's really too late to do anything about it.
Looking back, I should have more engaged and involved, planning earlier and making concrete plans weeks in advance. I myself could have done more to plan the trip, it's not all somebody else's fault. Now I know, but unfortunately seeing how it's senior year, there probably won't be any second chances. Which sucks, because seeing how I spent a year in Japan, this is in a way my third year, my junior year, actually attending UNC Charlotte. It really seems like I should get one more year to do everything right. But that won't be the case.
I was feeling pretty crummy there for awhile, it even was bumming me on my birthday Sunday, but somewhere along the line I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and move on. So, trying to turn a negative into a positive, I'm trying to do some productive things over the break, like get my toe fixed up, write about baseball, and look for jobs, but I still don't have any trips planned. Which is still a dull way to spend the break.
