All day I've been feeling edgy and out of sorts. I first attributed it to my restless night last night but at work tonight I had a lot of time to think. It was really slow. I was mentally going over why I felt like I was missing something or that something was off. I wasn't sure if it was my bad night, or the January blues, or Senior-itis. I couldn't figure it out. That's when it hit me... I need out. I need out of Cache Valley.
Unfortunately, at this point in my life I can't just pick up and move or leave. I have two more semesters to go before I graduate. There is no way in heck I'm leaving right now. Along with that, I'm the kind of person that needs stability or she starts to hyperventilate and gives herself an ulcer. I need a plan. I guess that's something I can do for the next year... plan. But what about this edgy, stir crazy feeling I'm feeling. I need some sort of reliever.
My option is to take a day and get out of the valley. Living in the bowl the is Cache Valley isn't bad but I just need out. I need out. I'm done with being in college. I'm done with living here. I'm ready for a change. But as I mentioned before I still have about a year until I've completed my degree.
Instead, I'll take the afternoon, once I get out of class, and drive somewhere else. I don't know what I'll do. Go to the mall and window shop. Have dinner out. Just drive around and think. This will all be done outside of Cache Valley. Either in Ogden or Layton. I know what you're thinking... "that's not really out" but that's my only option. I can't exactly take a vacation two weeks into the semester and I certainly can't move. So that's what I'm going to do... take an afternoon off. I'm looking forward to it. I'm craving it. I've got to get this stir craziness out of me!
Wish me luck.
