Two years already??

It’s been so long since I’ve written anything. Mainly because of the disappointment of my LSAT. I started this blog in hopes of writing every day and maybe inspire some people along the way. The focus eventually turned to pre-law and the struggles I was facing, so when my LSAT turned out the way it did, this blog seemed to be out of place. However, in honor of my blog’s two year anniversary, I’ve decided to post some of my favorite posts from the past two years. And of course, thank you all so much for reading, following and supporting me. I started this blog for fun and never imagined that I would ever get even half of the followers that I have now. Thank you and I send you my love and support as well. I hope I can inspire you and keep you reading. Stay tuned.

From: Come Fly with me to the 1950s

“I used to think of it [unconditional love] as, ‘If I gained 50 pounds and my face got horribly disfigured in an accident, would you still love me?’ But lately I’ve been thinking of it more in terms of, ‘If I am an emotional train wreck, ridiculous to handle, weepy all the time, irrationally stressed out and just otherwise bitchy, will you still be able to love me?’”

From: On Unconditional Love

“While waiting for a class response the girl next to me raised her hand and said, ‘I’m graduating in two weeks and I’m really wondering ‘What do I do with my life now?’ So the professor told us to take out a piece of paper and write in present tense where we see ourselves in 50 years. This is what I wrote…”

From: Into the Future

“To be depressed, is to walk around in a world where everyone sees colors except for you. To be depressed is to wish that when you wake up in the morning; that it was all a terrible dream, because this couldn’t possibly be your life.”

From: Embracing

“We say we are too stressed about working so much but don’t want to cut down on hours because we will lose money for fun things. We think we can do a better job than someone above us but we neither prove ourselves, nor understand what those above us actually do.”

From: The Millennial Generation

“And we certainly don’t learn how to rebuild our lives when everything we’ve worked for ends up being unattainable. I just want to know that what I am doing, will be worth something.”
