Are boys even real creatures like COME ON
Just when I think that all hope is lost and that I’m spiraling towards the bottom, I’m reminded that God blessed me with all of these amazing people in my life for a reason. I don’t even have to say anything, and they know exactly what I need to hear to be cheered up and reminded that everyday is beautiful and that I have so much going for me and so much to live for. I couldn’t be more thankful for all of the amazing people in my life.
I’m trying to get in shape for Spring Break and then I had a Moe’s burrito and a Chili’s hamburger in one day. So basically it’s going well.
I was on twitter the other day (as always) and I read this tweet from someone that was something along the lines of: “It’s crazy how high school and college change people.”
Okay, honestly? If you have not changed from age 14 (the beginning of high school) to your early twenties (the end of college), there is something WRONG with you!!! I genuinely hope that high school and college changes everyone.
Just had to let it out.
I seriously couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming year. I feel like 2012 was a big transition year for me and I spent the year working as hard as I could in so many different ways and I feel like it’s finally time for me to just enjoy all of my hard work and have fun. And to top it all off, I have the most amazing friends, boyfriend, and sorority that I could ever ask for to be there with me every step of the way. Hard work pays off :)
Exes are weird.
In 2013 I will care more about myself. I will stop self-sacrificing when unnecessary. I won’t miss out on things that I want to do simply because another person may not think it’s best. I will take life less seriously. I will still work hard and get good grades and be responsible, but I will remember that I want to be the type of person that lived and had fun when possible and realized that there is way more to life than good grades, a respectable career, financial stability, and playing it safe.
“Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
I don’t know who actually said this quote (I highly doubt it was REALLY Albert Einstein), but it’s one of my favorites and one of the things that sometimes helps me decide which path to follow.
One of my New Years resolutions last year was to read 50 books in a year. I absolutely love to read, so I thought it would be a really easy resolution to accomplish, but I guess life just got too busy or something and I lost the time to read and I just stopped.
So for 2013, I’m going to try again. Except I’m going to make it a little easier to accomplish.
I think I’m going to try to read 30 books this year. I think that by significantly decreasing the number, I’ll be able to dive into more challenging books and really enjoy them. I know that last year I read a lot of easy books just to boost my number and get to Book 50 as soon as possible. Also, finding 50 books proved to be a financial challenge. So I think 30 is doable! We’ll see in a year :)
One last thing before I go to bed:
It’s weird to live in a world where I go to the movie theater and the possibility of getting shot is in my mind. My future children will be able to get hurt anywhere. It’s sickening. That’s a lot of what I thought of when I was walking up to the movie theater that I have been going to since I moved here six years ago. It’s starting to dawn on me that I am not safe, no matter where I am and no matter how safe of an area I think I’m in. The recent tragedy struck me very, very hard. I wanted to write about it the day of, but my computer would not let me post for some reason, but I have so many thoughts racing through my head on political, spiritual, and just emotional levels. I’ll get around to writing about it sometime, but I’m too tired now and I’m worried that my words would just come out rushed.
I’m just keeping the victims and the family of the victims and just everyone involved in my thoughts and prayers.
