i am me.

It's so important to live the way YOU want to. So much emphasis is put on being selfless and always there for others, but sometimes everyone needs to be a little selfish. People should be able to be friends with who they want and they shouldn't have to worry about affecting others with what they decide to do (to an extent of course). Everyone always talks about what's 'cool' and what's 'weird', but have you ever thought of what you'd do if you had none of those influences? That's what you should do, because those who stay with you judgment-free are the people who are truly worth staying in your life. After all, you're the only you out there; stay unique because what's the fun in being just like everyone else?

"how lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."

I can't believe freshman year of college is already over! It feel like just yesterday that my parents and I were driving not campus feeling very overwhelmed but excited for the unknown and what was to come. I've met so many amazing people this year and have grown as a person in many ways. I think it's so important to take a moment and reflect on all the lessons and experiences that shaped the last year. All the friends I have made made it so hard to leave for the summer (I'm already ready to go back!), but the positive changes I've seen in myself throughout the year leave me challenged and motivated to continue these improvements, and come back next fall fully refreshed and ready to take advantage of every moment. The fact that I'm already 1/4 done with college shows how quickly it's going to pass; I refuse to look back in three years and regret not embracing every moment that I have in college. Already counting down the days to go back, but until then, here's to a relaxing and amazing summer with my family and friends from home!

‎"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew."

the final stretch.

I haven't had a chance to post in a while, but with finals coming up, I wanted to give out a burst of inspiration to everyone. WE GOT THIS. So close to summer... Keep truckin' and know that sunshine, friends, and relaxation is waiting for you!!
