Hey guys! Today I kind of feel like rambling so just bear with me. This year I've learned so much. Like a lot. One thing I've learned that has really stuck with me is that you should stop worrying about what other people are doing. So often I've been obsessed with comparing my life with the lives of other people, people who I barely know and aren't really involved in my life at all. You need to live your own life. Entirely your own. Make your own memories. Live in your moment. Be with the people who make you happy, make you laugh and bring out the best sides of you. Who cares what those other people are doing. Another thing I've learned this year is to stop being so hard on yourself. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we make a mistake and then make another one and then even another one. Mistakes are okay. We are not perfect at all and should never strive to be perfect. It's more fun that way anyways. I have also learned that some people are only temporary. Not everyone who touches your life will be in it forever. They aren't meant to be. Some people are supposed to be in your life for just a moment to teach you something. It's okay if they leave. Stick with the people who will last forever and learn from those who do not. Another lesson I've learned is that social media is not real. People only show parts of their lives on social media. Mainly, they show their happiness moments. However, you cannot truly know a person through social media. No matter how happy they may seem to be or how perfect their lives may be depicted, you can never know the truth. Live in the real world. Finally, I have learned that you need to love yourself. There is no one out there who is exactly like you. As cheesy as that sounds, it's true. Embrace your so-called flaws. Discover new things about yourself every day. Enrich your mind with the things you love. Make yourself as happy as possible. Be confident in yourself.
     Life is so so short. As they say, the days are long but the years are short. This year has been crazy. It's been a mess at times. But I've grown so much and still have a lot of growing left to do. We grow every day really. Take risks. Say yes a lot and say no when you need to. Do whatever makes you happy. Embrace each day and never take a moment for granted because looking back, do you really want to have any regrets?
    So, here's a shoutout and a thank you to my first year of college. It's been fun.

That's all for now.


  1. I'm so glad you decided to ramble a bit and share what you have been learning in life. I can relate to each and everyone of the points your boldly unlined. What touched me the most was when you said some people are only temporary. I made a mistake by getting to know someone who I thought would stick around in my life then didn't. I can't get this situation out of my mind, ever fee like this? I am slowly grieving the loss of this person. (They are still alive but not in my life) I just need to let it go and do the things I love because life is short.
    Keep learning! and creating new memories.

    1. I completely agree with the feeling of losing someone you truly thought would be in your life for a while. This is definitely something I have struggled with. Although it seems like they should be in your life, some people aren't meant to be around for the long run. What I would do is try to appreciate what they brought to your life and be excited about meeting new people. :)

  2. This was a great reminder about what is truly important. I also needed the reminder that social media if fake, I hate that I measure myself against it.
