In my best Beyoncé voice: “My Aspiration in Life…..*dramatic pause* would be to be HAPPY!
I refuse to let anything make me unhappy this semester. It is MY semester, I only have one more to go. I just want to embrace the moment, and live life blissfully. I want to look back on this semester and scream: I DID THAT! *snaps in z formation*. I want to surround myself with beautiful people with gorgeous soul. I want to chase life. I want to be happy. This is my last semester….I WILL be happy!
Last night, I went indoor skydiving! *twirls* Now, I LOVE adventures; but that doesn't mean I’m good at them! So while I was in this flying contraption, everything was great. I felt like tinkerbell! *twirls* The problem came while I was trying to leave that magic air vent. You see, while you’re in the vent you’re floating on air, but as soon as you leave the vent gravity exist again. I attempted to leave the vent face first. So I hit the ground….face first! Lol it was tragic! #mylife But it was still the most thrilling experience I’ve had in months. Now, I hate falling…especially on my face. *grabs mirror* But I feel like that’s what life is about! It’s about chasing adventures! And sometimes you have to fail, and then laugh at those failures and try again. So this semester, I challenge you to not only seek adventure, but learn from the failed ones. I learned that gravity is a real life thing! *snaps in Z formation*
I’m a Type A Female; and yes….i have the next 3 years of my life planned out hour by hour. *Kanye shrugs* Now, the problem with this is that my planner leaves little room for variance. I’m missing out on random opportunities. I find myself saying no to other’s plans because I have my own. And I see NOTHING wrong with sticking to my schedule; I just fear that I’m missing out on the hidden gems. I’m missing out on moments that could be beautiful. SO…say yes! Say yes to grabbing coffee with a new friend. Say yes running the bear trail earlier then you had planned. Say yes to taking snapchats with no make-up on. Because saying no to simple variances can add up….
My school has a ton of weird traditions that I haven’t tried yet. And no, I still have no interest in tortilla tossing. But I do want to embrace the traditions that bleed green and gold. I want to go to at least one game of every athletic team, and learn their chants. Not because I’ll enjoy it….because let’s be honest, I probably won’t. #literallyicannot But because this semester is my last chance to experience those traditons as a student. So why not? You’ve already paid for it all….#privateschooltuitionsucks #broke #justdoit
…Because It Does!
If you haven’t been warned before, let me be the first to do so. SALLIE MAE DOES NOT PLAY!*snaps in Z formation* She will be asking for her loans back before you can post your graduation selfie! So be ready! Take advantage of the resources around you…and find a job! Yes….you need to network to get work! *snaps in Z formation* Start with your professors; they are where they are for a reason! They have experience AND wisdom. Even if they aren’t wise enough to reject the A- rule. *rolls eyes*
Do you remember who you were freshman year? I don’t care who you are….we were ALL disgusting specimens! Lol Take a moment to reflect on how far you've come! Because #yasssss hunny! Whether it was a spiritual, emotional, or physical journey it needs to be celebrated!
I walk into every classroom pageant waving. Now, a classmate of mine did call me pretentious for this; but I don’t see it that way. I just want to be remembered for the girl who came into the room with her head held high and a bright smile. Let your presence make a difference! You have one more semester! Ask yourself: what will I be remembered for? #youwillremembermyname
Do you know your classmates? I mean,do you really know them? Do you know which classmate was raised in a single parent home? Do you know which classmate survived a crazy car accident? Do you know which classmate is paying their own way through school? Yea…I didn’t think so. I am the FIRST person to scream: “NO NEW FRIENDS”. However, the people around you are in your life for a reason. If you don’t at least ATTEMPT to learn their stories/dreams and goals, you’re missing out. You are meant to learn from those around you, so get to know them before they leave.
I wouldn’t have made it to senior year without the help of many. So I have many to thank. It may sound ridiculous, but we need to thank those that carried us AND challenged us. So yes….You need to thank that professor that didn’t round you 89.9 to A.
If you know me, then you not only recognize me by my feng shui,but you know that I had a HORRIBLE freshmen year. I was surrounded by toxic souls, and people who thought they were better than me. There was a group in particular that played a cruel joke, because of their FALSE sense of power. And im going to be honest…it almost broke me. I felt alone. I felt hated. I felt like I was wrong for being myself.And to that group, I say thank you. Thank you for being such weak individuals that you needed each other to TRY to take me down. Thank you for teaching me that I am stronger than I EVER thought I was.Thank You for making me realize that I wasn’t meant to fit in!And I forgive you all, because i'm a better person now....and I came out on top! *snaps and twirls to the haters* We’ve all had to face individuals filled with hate,BUT it is our job to forgive and thank them! Haters let you know that you are special and different. Now listen closely as I say this: I have NEVER seen a hater doing better than me! *snaps in Z formation. Forgive…your soul deserves it.
