I have a terrible time focusing on what’s happening directly in front of me. I always have. I started prepping to apply to college in 5th grade, I planned out my 10-year career plan when I was in 9th grade and I have an ideal place of where I’d like to be when I’m 40.
So, doing things ~spontaneously~ does not work for me. And when things like hurricanes or snow storms are forecast, it really can send me into a tailspin. I desperately want to plan the trajectory of something that can’t be planned, and I end up just running in place.
Am I going to lose power? Will parts of town flood? What about food? What about water? How bad is it going to be?
Planning the unplannable is completely mentally taxing and I hate it. I need a break. I need a nap. I need classes to be canceled.
Which, actually, has happened! Classes will be canceled beginning today at 5 p.m. through Friday. Read more here.
