Confused, Conflicted, and in College

In my freshman year, I listened as upperclassmen complained about how they had no idea about their futures. I thought, “this won’t happen to me.” What did I have to be worried about? I was eighteen and had three publications. My career was already taking off.

Then the publications came to a halt. I started losing Twitter followers. I had writers block and hadn’t finished a novel in months. Am I just “washed up?”

Now I can understand where those people were coming from. And especially now, since I have not yet secured an internship and am desperately racing against the clock to get my applications done before winter break, I realize how terrifying the cute can actually be if you waste too much time playing Candy Crush.

  1. Reminds me of a quote I heard. I can’t remember where for the life of me now, but it’s this: “Life is just a series of peaks and troughs, and you don’t whether you’re in a trough until you’re climbing out, or on a peak until you’re coming down.”
