2 years, 11 months, 1 week Don’t fall into the trap of what’s normal. Gain the confidence to make mistakes, get knocked down, and feel discouraged. Pave your own way and take responsibility for what comes.Then promise yourself to never regret the choices you made along the way.
What is this feeling of overwhelming joy? Oh, it must be the fact that I’m done with school, graduation is in a week, family is coming this weekend, and it’s my birthday. Why not be in a good mood? Ha. I”m overjoyed. Seriously.
Life plays its tricks. I keep saying that nothing will ever surprise me because the universe tends to fuck with my life every now and then. Who am I to complain? Something has to keep my life interesting. Anyway… I’m in a better place now, especially since I’ve been focusing on the brighter things in my life. But, fate dislikes the fact that I’m not paying attention to the stressful things. Like… where the hell am I going to live two months from now. Where am I going to work? How am I going to pay my bills? Well, I’m sorry I’m not putting much thought into any of these things because honestly… I find it more important to stay happy.
Another year wiser? Is that the cliche? Well, sure, I’m another year wiser. Older. More mature. Happier? Possibly. 22nd Birthday seems so… insignificant. I find myself reflecting more and more on the past 4 years. Well duh, I’m graduating. But because it’s my birthday as well I feel as though I’ve come a long way - career and personal wise. Scary thing is that the safety net hanging below me is about to be ripped out and replaced with hard cement. My birthday present to myself? Keep looking ahead and not beneath me.
I have so much happening in the next few weeks. Super excited, but also nervous. That’s normal right? I just have to focus on what’s important in life. Friends. Family. And loving me for me.
I don’t know where you’re going
But do you got room for one more troubled soul?
I don’t know where I’m going but I don’t think I’m coming home
And I said I’ll check in tomorrow if I don’t wake up dead
This is the road to ruin
And we’re starting at the end
