In the first two weeks of orientation, I reveled at more parties than I usually would in two months. In the weeks following, I joined more clubs than I can count on my hands. I have signed up for more events than my 24-hour day could reasonably accommodate, while managing classes and a study load. I have spent more money in a week than I would in a month.
There always seemed to be a temptation to pursue every new experience available, to expand my mind to corners I have not explored and to believe that opportunities were only limited to the range I set for myself.
Currently, I seem to have achieved some level of balance in my Energizer Bunny life. These include my diet (Uris Deli sandwiches and salads have carbohydrates, protein and fiber), health (technically, dancing from midnight to 2 a.m. means I have had two hours of intense workout), social life (meeting 20 new people in one hour is like having my social life driving at the speed of a Ferrari) and work (which sometimes means sitting in the library winking at and chatting with friends for three hours while multitasking on my laptop).
However, I resolve to continue being tempted. Despite the stress of being stretched thin over everything I want to dip into, I believe that the more choices I face now and the more open I am to opportunity, the more quickly I will uncover the shape of my future and what I could be.
