Then I hit the letter “H”.
At first, I was going to write about my experiences in Hong Kong. But I can’t find the photos from my week and a half there, staying with my dear friend who taught at the Kowloon YMCA.
Then I thought I would write about my 96 hours in Hungary (Budapest to be precise), and then realized that due to the morning train from Zagreb, Croatia and the beer cart rolling around at 8:30 am (It’s 11am somewhere, right?), that I don’t remember enough about my time there to accurately share my experience!
Then I went out of town for the weekend. I didn’t have access to any of my photos and I couldn’t think of another “H” thing to write about. Then, I realized that I was only two weeks away from the end of my current semester at Johns Hopkins University. I’m taking two courses AND working full-time and I started to panic. And since I didn’t have any photos to give you anyway, I hid from the A to Z Challenge.
A lot of people live hectic lives. Many are able to balance them successfully. Others have difficulty. I am one who has difficulty but appears to have it all together. The truth is, I don’t. But I make it work. Sometimes to make it work, I do what I did this weekend. I just get away from it all. I dump it all from my mind and I do something completely different and unrelated. Then I return to reality. And realize that I just put myself another three days behind schedule on EVERYTHING else in my life that I had to get done. But hey, it was a fun weekend. And I’m happy. And that starts with H, too.
