Time is one of the most valuable resources. It's finite, yet required to do anything. Obviously time can't be controlled. But it can be managed. And you have the ability to make the choice on whether to use your time for one purpose or another. I don't think we understand this as kids. I used to think that summertime lasted for about a decade. Now it feels exactly like what it is; those few months. Unfortunately, the hardest goals to achieve always have the highest cost; the time you have to sacrifice. I regret some of the time that I've wasted already that I could have been working toward something instead of nothing. But while we are here dilly daddling away, time keeps ticking by. They say there aren't enough hours in a day; and for many people that's probably true. But then we come to the line drawn in the sand. People should work hard to achieve their goals and keep on living, but at the same time, you should also try to have some fun in life and continue to pursue happiness. Where do we strike the balance? It depends, and it is difficult. Initially, many people are probably on one side of the fence. All work or all play. To balance that requires some sacrifices and some management of your time on your part. But managing your time is one of the smartest things that you can do. So I'm going to go ahead and cut off my rambling with this; don't waste your time. When it's gone, its gone.
A not very timely note
This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.
