sometimes life gets really busy.
and sometimes that makes it hard to remember that i told myself i’d post a list of my favorite articles or recipes or songs for the week, so for that, i apologize (mainly to myself, as this page isn’t exactly overrun with visitors as of late).
i mean…if you HAVE actually seen this page before, you’d know that i’m not a big fan of personal posts. i’m always afraid of whatever i write or say being judged, but lately, i’m actually realizing how much i don’t care what internet bullies think of me. so i guess here’s a little post about something more personal…
yeah. so stuff happens and life gets wild. classes are still a thing and each semester brings back this weird energy that instills in me the desire to join every single club on campus, which lasts for approximately 3 hours. all of a sudden i’m somehow 50 pages of reading behind by the 2nd week, and i’m just sitting here, left with this overwhelming sense of doom in every aspect of life as graduation creeps closer and closer. yet, during those moments, i still find the time to watch about 30 episodes of family guy on netflix.
however! i am so happy to say that i am in the beginning stages of a finalized post-graduation plan. it’s exciting and i have so many ideas and i’m so hopeful and optimistic and all of those happy things, even though i don’t know if i should be yet. i’m a music major, after all. but i don’t really care about the stuff that could go wrong right now…all i know is that when i have my job and apartment and car situation all sorted out, i will be rewarding myself with 2 turtles. names have been chosen. and yes, one of them will be named after food. no, it will not be pizza the turtle.
but for now, i’m just going to enjoy my last semester. i’ve been making a conscious effort to appreciate and take advantage of every day i have left in boston, and i think i’ve been doing a pretty good job so far. i’m keeping my eyes and heart open a lot more often than i have been in the last few years, and i’m realizing how much there really is that can make me so happy.
it’s usually the little things…
when i walk around campus, i tend to run into a lot of familiar faces. i don’t know how or why it happens so frequently, but i guess i can attribute it to a fine mix of being a super duper old senior and a member of the greek community. on an average day, i’ll run into about 3 people i know when i walk from one side of campus to the other. i’ll see girls in my sorority, pals from freshman year who i only now see in passing, despite our constant efforts to sit down to a meal together, and even weekend acquaintances who i know through a friend of a friend’s friend. and we always say hi. sometimes we stop and chat. and more often than not, we hug it out. i’m very much a hugger. and no matter who or when it is, seeing people always makes me so unbelievably happy. i guess i just wanted to write that all out here to give a shout out to the folks who stop to acknowledge me on their walk to class. you have no idea how much i appreciate your friendship and seeing a friendly smile is usually what gets me through the day.
i think that’s what i’ll miss the most. actually, i’m pretty positive that it’s what i’ll miss the most.
so thank you. keep ‘em coming. i’ve still got a few months left of hugs in me.
