Friends Forever?

Hello everyone!

Recently I was thinking about the idea of “friends forever” and how life really is. Since I’ve been to college, I’ve kept in touch with three close friends from high school, but I’ve had a strange falling out with one, who I was really close to.

I feel like after high school, who you want to keep in your life is really up to you. You have to make the effort or else the friendship will just tend to fade away. Of course, there are some people who I haven’t spoken to in a year, but I can still text and call them almost as though nothing has changed. But for the majority of people, you tend to revert back to virtually strangers.

After high school, whether you go to college or get a job, the people you meet then are the ones that will have an impact and will most likely befriend.

I feel like the difference between high school friends and “real world” friends is the fact that friends you make post-high school tend to have more in common with you. Sure, you have things in common with high school friends, but you’re still kind of forced to be around them because you’re stuck in the same place for years, same classroom, and same people. Everyone knows everyone, and they all already know you.

After high school, if you leave your hometown, you get to redefine who you are. You get to introduce yourself to people how you want and not have your past define you.

My friends that I’ve made in college all have the same general outlooks as I do for my future. We want to be successful and independent. I know you might be thinking isn’t that everyone’s goals? No. People I was friends with in high school had goals of staying in town and getting married, which is totally fine. We all have different wants in life, but because our goals were so different, we had completely different mindsets.

I guess my point of this post is to let people know that after high school, you’re only going to stay friends if you put in the effort. But, you’re going to meet so many people who share the same beliefs and future that you want. Don’t feel like you have to stick to someone just because you were friends, sometimes you do need to move on.

Senioritis

Hello everyone!

Yesterday, I skipped all of my classes and did absolutely nothing. Why? Because I just didn’t want to go. But don’t worry, I’ve only missed like two classes the entire semester, not a chronic skipper.

But I realized that I graduate in almost a month and started panicking. No job set up, still have to pass current classes, and I have no idea what I want to do.

All I could think is TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

When I woke up today, I took a breathe and thought through everything. It’s amazing how we can stress ourselves out so easily. So what if I don’t have a job lined up? There’s no rule that says I need a ‘real job’ out of college. It would be nice, but I can always do part-time jobs, while I look for the right job.

I don’t need to stress out about my classes because I’ve done virtually everything and received decent grades. I realized that I should just enjoy the time I have left, and focus on my graduation day. I want to make it as fun and memorable as it can be.

I guess my point of this post is to remind everyone that we do have time. Don’t stress yourself out like I did, and if you do, take a minute and remember that there’s no ultimatium or rule that you have to follow. Just living in the moment and get what you need to get done at this moment, before worrying months ahead.

For All My Awkward People

Hello everyone,

Today I can really relate to the term “hideout” via Daily Prompt: Hideout. I like to think I’m a pretty outgoing person, whose easy to befriend. I noticed that I’m that way with strangers and my close friends. But, my awkward tendencies come out when I’m around people I like or just make me uncomfortable.

Just today, I ran into an old acquaintance who I like and also makes me feel uncomfortable sometimes. So it was double the awkwardness. Boy, oh boy, did I wish I had a hideout available so I could just ran away from the entire situation. It wasn’t even that big of a deal, but you know, we always over analyze our selves.

After that, I didn’t know what to do with myself and ended up walking around my campus for almost an hour, cursing myself for not being more ‘normal’. I’m sure everyone has had moments like that.

It takes us all a bit to get over our socially awkward moments, but eventually we’re able to shrug it off. What helps me is remembering that it’s not the end of the world. Everyone goes through moments they wish they could go back in time and fix, trust me, I would know. But sometimes, we just need to accept that it happened, get over it, and maybe laugh about it….eventually.

I guess what I’m trying to get across is, feel free to want that hideout and crawl into it. But, eventually you need to figure out when to get out because life is going to continuously throw fun, exciting, and yes more cringe-worthy moments to you and need to just accept it. Life is unexpected in that way.

How to ‘Live Life to the Fullest’

When I think of blur, via Daily Prompt: Blur, life comes to mind. I know it’s an obvious connection, but it’s so true. Life is such a blur. One day I thought I would be in high school forever living with my parents, and now a minute later, here I am about to graduate college and having to struggle with everything.

People are always saying “live life to the fullest”, but sometimes I think, ‘easy for you to say, you don’t have anything to worry about’. Things like work, money, bills, family, etc., prevent us from doing what we want. Most of the time, I spend my days in school or working, so days just slide by without a second thought, and the next thing I know, it’s the new year. I’m only twenty-two and I already feel like I’m throwing days away.

My goal is to graduate as soon as possible and then get a job. I guess that’s the goal of all college students, huh? But, after getting a job, hopefully I’ll have enough free time to just enjoy life.

I realized a long time ago that you don’t need to spend anything besides time to ‘live life to the fullest’. Today I took a venture out to a local Asian garden and walked around the woods. It was really fun going and doing something I don’t usually do.

Time with friends and family is also a goal of mine. Of course, everyone’s busy, but when you can finally get them together, that’s what life’s about! Whether it’s time to yourself or making time for others, I believe time is the key in allowing yourself to enjoy life to the fullest.

Thank you for reading and let me know what you do to enjoy your life!
