My life, described in lists of seven.
*Items in lists appear in no particular order. Usually.
WHY THIS BLOG EXISTS
1. I am bored and have run out of other ways to pass the time.
2. Blogs can be fun and distracting.
3. I enjoy making lists because I am somewhat obsessive-compulsive. Lists add structure and order to my life.
4. I’m allowed to do whatever the hell I want, and this is what I want to do.
5. It’s a creative outlet?
6. It will be a challenge, and I’m up for it.
7. Seven is my lucky number.
Spending four months in France and living with an amazing host family while there.
Being slated president of my sorority, even though I was abroad and even though nobody in the new pledge class knows me at all!
Learning to put certain things and people behind me. I’ve definitely become a much more mature person, and I realize now that there are things out of our control that will only destroy us if we can’t move on.
Getting a beautiful DSLR camera and becoming inspired to be more artistic and creative.
Becoming much more self-confident and independent.
Having a really great (though unpaid, and at times, boring) internship with an environmental organization that taught me leadership techniques.
Making so many new friends and knowing that I have a good support system, should I ever need it.
Get me a boyfriend. That one guy on my mind would be nice :)That didn’t happen, and the other one I had my eye on doesn’t seem to be a possibility for next semester either. But that’s okay.
Continue to do well in school - and raise my GPA so Latin Honors are a possibility. Brought up my GPA during the spring semester, but I still don’t know my grades from this fall.
Have an amazing and enriching experience abroad in France.I’d say that was a success.
Stop dwelling on the past, thinking about missed chances, and wishing things were different. Take advantage of the opportunities I have in the present. I’ve been working on this one, and I think I’ve come a long way. Much more emotionally mature, even despite a whole bunch of bullshit that happened. Or because of it?
Continue to keep a journal and this tumblr. Journal = absolutely. This tumblr = slightly less. But my other tumblr = yes.
Get closer to the people I love, and don’t forget to remind them how much they mean to me. Living abroad has definitely helped me hold on to the important relationships and let the other ones go. I know who cares about me, and that’s what I need to remember.
Remember that I’m smart and beautiful and that I can achieve anything if I am determined. Trying my best!
