What’s Important to You?

Chang Photo Disclaimer: I’m writing this blog entry to procrastinate from doing actual work. However, in writing this entry I’m also being productive, so I don’t feel too bad about it.


Throughout high school, my life revolved around my next track meet. When will my next conditioning day be? What am I going to eat the night before? How can I schedule my schoolwork around it? Granted, I had an awesome time competing and I wouldn’t change anything about it, but I was also missing out on the little things—lunch with friends, a Friday night movie, and countless weekends. Plus, sometimes I was putting track ahead of schoolwork. Although I never failed any classes, it would’ve become a bad habit if I had let it continue.


I guess the point of this spiel is that, over time, my priorities shifted quite a bit. Honestly, I’d much rather be free to do my own thing on occasion than be confined within extra obligations. It’s not exactly the most militaristic mindset, but we’re still in college and it’s important to enjoy these years. Having fun and making the most out of the time we have; that’s what’s important to me.
