Superwoman

Superwoman – Alicia Keys

Everywhere I’m turning
Nothing seems complete
I stand up and I’m searching
For the better part of me
I hang my head from sorrow
state of humanity
I wear it on my shoulders
Gotta find the strength in me

Cause I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I’m a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I’m a Superwoman

For all the mothers fighting
For better days to come
And all my women, all my women sitting here trying
To come home before the sun
And all my sisters
Coming together
Say yes I will
Yes I can

Cause I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I’m a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I’m a Superwoman

When I’m breaking down
And I can’t be found
And I start to get weak
Cause no one knows
Me underneath these clothes
But I can fly
We can fly, Oh

Cause I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I’m a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I’m a Superwoman

This song has been on repeat for about 15 minutes now… The result of a stressful and busy week… Gosh, it’s only week 3.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my life and where it’s going and what I’m doing to secure my future and stuff like that. I will try to delve into those depths and explain. I’ve recently taken a lot more positions than I think I can handle. I’m in Clair de Lune A Cappella on campus and I’ve been in it since my first quarter of freshman year. I love the ladies (it’s an all-female group) and I love the singing that we do. A cappella is a term for a group that performs/sings without any musical instruments. Everything is done by our voices, except our beat-boxer! I was elected to be historian, secretary, AND fundraising chair for this quarter and for next year. Historian basically keeps all the awards, plaques, decorations for performances and tabling, and posters. So that’s pretty simple. I’m actually sharing the Secretary position and we switch off taking notes and sending emails to everyone in the group every rehearsal. My friend has Sunday rehearsals and I have Wednesdays. That’s not so bad either. Just listen to the comments and write everything that goes on. However, as of this week, I’m beginning to feel the full force of taking on fundraising chair. I’ve never done anything like it before and, although I’m well-organized (most of the time), I’m starting to realize that it’s a lot of work. I contact everyone in the group for their duties for the fundraising events, ask who can bring things, make sure there are enough members available at certain times, fill in for members when there aren’t enough, etc…the list goes on forever. I also go to various other meetings and report back to the co-presidents. I like keeping myself busy, but, when it interferes with sleep, then it starts to be a problem. I don’t mind pulling almost all-nighters once in a while, but it’s been happening a lot more often. I wonder what the quarter will be like toward the end.
