This year has been one from hell; choices I made caused me to lose some of the people I am closest to, I mourned the losses of loved ones, and I had one of the hardest academic semesters of my life. But that’s life, you go through negatives and “bumps in the road” and you get the feeling like you are repeatedly kicked in the gut. If you think that life only has negatives you need to WAKE UP!!! Life has so many positives, small and big. My positives of this year: I made new friends and rekindle and strengthened old friendships, I ice climbed and bridge jumped, I was Lips in Rocky Horror and I am living in an apartment with some of the most wonderful people I am lucky to call my friends (and I get to hang out all summer with them and my other wonderful friends). There were: music events, all things theater, random adventures, drunk nights, parties, hookups, laughs, learning how to cook, and a million awkward moments and I am extremely thankful for everything that has happened.
To end this corny and lengthy post I just want to say when you hit bumps in the road, do not panic. Speaking from experience it gets better. You just have to be patient.
So here I am sitting in a coffee shop by myself and for once I don’t mind being alone. For whatever reason when I am with everyone I love and care about I feel the need to have someone. Why the urgency? Why can’t I just live my life?
