Last week was just hectic.  This week is still pretty mind boggling… and next week will continue to murder me alive.  This semester has been so tiring and busy that I am a little shocked and clueless as to how I should handle everything.  I’ve had crazy schedules before but I’ve never had so much to do that I have to give up sleep and eating regularly.  Of course, I know it’s not good when my schedule dominates over my health… but what can I do?  Speaking of health, I’m pretty sure these past two weeks have contributed to the hives that have appeared on my face and arms!  It started last night… and when I woke up this morning, I WAS SO UGLY.  And I have a networking event tonight… so I’ve been trying to tone the hives down.  They went down a little… but I still feel weird.

Any who, in times like these, I want to escape- from reality, from life, from myself.  I think about dropping everything and just running away to somewhere far and exotic, losing myself to my youth.  However, time and money are obstacles.  Also, even though escaping is what I want to do, I know I cannot just do that because I have responsibilities… running away on my own will would just be selfish.

Since physically escaping is out of the question… I’ve turned to something I call, The Internet Escape.  This is when I come on my blog (here!) and lose myself in my ideas, mind, and soul.  This platform is no simple blog to me… it’s my escape.  I come here to reflect about 20% of the time (30% at a secret location and 50% in the shower…).

Blogging is one of the activities that I absolutely love because it helps organize my ideas and my blog acts as my confidant.  If I had no work to do, I’d spend A LOT more time on blogging.  It’s hard to describe, but I feel safe and comfortable with expressing my ideas via my blog.  And it’s certainly very important to feel this way at your escape location.

As I said earlier, I’ve been having some hard times with everything lately and I think it’s time I escape for a little while.  So, hello internet escape~  HERE I COME.

haha~~ silliness aside, I know many people are stressed with their everyday lives too and sometimes it’s so difficult to find the right outlet… I recommend trying different outlets and figuring out which works best for you.  I’ve tried a whole range and I found blogging my favorite and it has not failed to help me relax a bit.
