stay true

“…To express yourself as you are, without any intentional, fancy way of adjusting yourself, is the most important thing…” Shunryu Suzuki

It’s important to be yourself, always, and be confident about it too. You’re probably awesome (extra awesome if you’re actually reading this), so there’s no need to change for anyone.
 
I’ve made some changes this year. I’m less of a secret bitch and I trust fewer people. It’s easier for me to say ‘no’ and I’m pretty straightforward with everyone. I still respect everyone though, which I think is important. I don’t feel the need to censor myself in front of my good friends, and I don’t plan on disclosing myself to anyone anymore, unless they prove to be honest and worthy. I’ve made that mistake way too many times.
I noticed more people being fake, and I don’t understand it at all. How can you be one way toward a person and call them your friend when they’re in front of you, but turn and talk about them when they leave the room? Shit ain’t right.

Anyway, I’m looking into study abroad programs and found a couple that go with what I’m studying, and would be a dream to visit (Germany and Spain). I’m so bored with where I’m at. I should probably listen to my dad who always tells me, “Well, you need to get bored once in a while!”

I’m getting tired of walking along the same blocks every day for classes. Routine kills me. I don’t know how normal that is. It’s only been a year and a half. Maybe the change in schedule this semester will help with that. But seriously, studying abroad would be AMAZING.

say what?

I’m in my twenties.

I spent my last day as a teenager sleeping, playing soccer for 3 hours, eating a calzone, and watching Charlie St. Cloud with two awesome people. Alhumdulillah, it’s been one of my favorite years. On to the next one! 🙂
