Guilt of Break

Sometimes I find it hard for me to enjoy my time in London. I am studying abroad in a beautiful city, and learning amazing things that I would have never been able to learn had I not come here. I have the kind of personality that thrives on goals and achieving them. If I have no goals set for the future I feel worthless and useless. This summer, I have a few goals that I want to accomplish, and I have not taken the steps to start those goals. The main reason why I haven’t taken the steps to start those goals is because I’ve been here actually studying abroad. I spend most of my days touring museums and learning different things about the culture of London.

Most of our days begin at 9 o’clock in the morning and end at 10 p.m. Admittedly, when the day is over I have no energy or want to write anything down or start any plans for the future. I understand that this is completely normal and there is nothing wrong with being lazy expecially when you spend most of the day not being lazy. I swear, I feel like there isn’t enough hours in the day to accomplish all the things that I want to get done. However, this is technically summer break and I did just spend the last four years completing a very vigorous undergrad. All of my friends have been telling me that I deserve this break, and I deserve to be lazy. This is not good enough for me I feel like. I am only young for a certain amount of time, and I feel that I need to break barriers and accomplish all the things I want to get done if I am to be successful in the future.
