Too Much Thinking

07/11/22

For those who are reading my blog for the first time, and for those who haven’t checked the blog in a while: I started writing this page to take the journal entries that I write to myself and share them, without, (most,) of the personal details. I started handwriting my entries again after clearing out multiple notebooks. I have to say, while I get cramps easily, it feels really good to translate my thoughts from pen to paper instead of hand to keyboard.

I’m ecstatic with myself because I was under the impression that I wouldn’t be handwriting any more entries, mainly because typing is just easier, but life is funny like that. You never really know what’s next or where you’ll lead yourself.

Sure, one can make plans and ideas for their future, and they can even live accordingly. However, I’m of the personal belief that nothing, especially the future, is set in stone. That’s why I personally find value in living in the moment. A big message that I’ve shared throughout my posts is the habit of taking things once at a time.

I feel that sometimes the answers I seek are right in front of me and I’ll miss them if I spend too much time thinking about what may or may not be. So, the message I want you all to take away from this post: take your time. Take charge of circumstances that are under your control, rather than pondering over things that haven’t happened yet. Why, because the events we go so far as to lose sleep over are simply out of our control because they haven’t happened yet. Be present, be mindful, and live with passion one day at a time.

Hello all. My name is Henry Hyman; I am an incoming second-year student at Georgia State Univeristy. I work in engagement for Hillel at GSU: a student-run Jewish organization that provides an open space for all students willing to come and learn about the Jewish faith and culture. I also serve as a member of GSU's student-run radio station, Album 88.5. I get behind the mic once a week and have the chance to spread my voice to Atlanta and Georgia State. I'm taking over as coordinator for our sessions program where we host local artists and get the full scoop of what the Atlatna music scene has to offer. Besides my professional life, I love to kick back with friends and listen to music. I played basketball in high school and love the sport as a hobby. I'm a huge Nintendo activist, playing games such as Pokemon, Mario Kart, and Smash Bros. I play kendama, (yes, the ball on the stick) and love to write (if you couldn't tell). I hope you all get a chance to share my journey through higher education as I recount my daily experiences and provide some insight on how to live life as a college student. Also, be sure to stay in touch with me on social media!
