I am a planner, through and through.  I love making to-do lists, I enjoy filling out planners and calendars, and ideally I plan ahead for a 3-month timeframe at the minimum.  I have embraced my Type A nature and have found that throughout college, graduate school, and now in the working world, being a planner has helped me succeed.  Although it may seem ironic and slightly humorous that a young woman who loves planning is writing about “The Unplanned Life,” I have come to realize that a lot of my life has actually gone not according to my original plan.

On January 31st, I attended an internship fair for my graduate counseling program.  As a third-year graduate student, I have grown accustomed to a certain amount of heightened anxiety and stress.  After I attended that fair on January 31st however, I learned that my stress level could actually rise even higher.  There were several classrooms packed with representatives from various internship sites accompanied by their colorful and information-packed poster boards.  They answered questions, they let us ask questions, they gave us contact information, and we gave out cover letters and resumes.

Last week I took advantage of a low-priced airfare special to fly back home to Hawaii for about six days.  It was a very short trip, yet with leafless trees, an earlier sunset, and temperatures gradually dropping, those six sunshine-filled days with my family and friends made it all worth it.  (more…)
