"I'll Figure It Out"

The summer classes you were going to take got cancelled, what are you going to do to keep from falling behind? You want to get a second job, how are you going to balance everything? You have $10 to make it through the next two weeks? How many credits are you planning on taking? What do you mean you don't know when you're going to graduate? When will you have the time to take care of your guinea pig? How are you going to get enough sleep? When will you have time to work on homework?

The past few weeks I feel like my brain is totally flooded with a million and a half things that I need to try get a handle on and the only response that I have is "I'll Figure It Out".

I'l figure out what to do about my classes so I'm not behind and how many credits I'll be taking after school starts, and I'll figure out how to add in a second job, and I'll be fine with just $10 and having a second job will help with that in the future. I'll figure out when I'm going to graduate once I have a better idea about my classes and credits, and I always prioritize the care my guinea pig gets so he has everything he needs.

I'll figure it out... I'll figure it out... I'll figure it out....

Recently, I've noticed that it's not just me.

There are a lot of people, albeit mostly other students because they're who I'm around the most, who spend a lot of time saying that they'll figure things out.

Who spend more time saying that they'll figure it out than they do actually figuring things out...

For me, I think I rely way more than I should on that old saying that "everything will work out how it's supposed to" and that "destiny is already set" to take some of the pressure off.

There are so many things that I need to figure out and most of the time I hope that some of them will just figure themselves out so that I don't actually have to figure it out on my own...

The only downside is that I don't want to be complacent in my own life. I want to be able to look back and know that I worked hard, and that I made the choices that I did and planned things the way I did for a reason - not that some cosmic universe was figuring things out for me because I got overwhelmed by everything I had going on.

So what do I do?

I hope that things will figure themselves out....

I know, I know, I just said I wanted to be active in my own life.

I'm working on it.

I'm trying to do small things towards achieving the completion of everything that I need to figure out. Sending an email to the right person, asking the questions I need answers to, making phone calls, doing some fancy googling! Small things add up to big things, and that's what I'm going for right now.

No, I haven't figured anything out yet, but I've gotten started on figuring things out. I'll figure it out, just not right away.

Do you fall into the habit of saying you're going to figure things out and then hoping they'll figure themselves out? What are some of the things you do to make sure that everything gets worked out?

I'll see you on Thursday
