First Things First

I’m not sure if what I’ve poured all of my hard work and effort into will actually lead me to the path I want to walk in life.

I accepted you for who you are. Why won’t you do the same for me? #collegedecisions

So, so tired of being disappointed. Waiting for somebody to recognize that I am more than just a number.

JANG Response (part 2)

What are the things you look for in a friend and in a soulmate?

There is a clear overlap, but what are the defining characteristics that separate one from another? Is there (or should there) even be a difference?



Hoping that this wasn’t just a dream

and that everything won’t come crashing down in the weeks to come

or completely fade away



People didn’t drop or skip class because they were too lazy to get out of bed; they dropped or skipped because they had to.

The hardworking peers in my classes who I stopped seeing had families to tend to, shifts that they had to work, and the impression that they were just so behind that there was no way for them to balance everything and catch up.

I feel so privileged.

College isn’t hard. Life is hard.

Things you need to hear

“Even though I’m like ashamed [of] who I was and have so so many regrets
If I could redo it I wouldn’t change a thing
‘Cause all those mistakes lead to who I am today
And I don’t think I’m perfect

but I’m better than who I was yesterday”
