blackboard is the worst invention of all time because there’s literally no way to escape your homework. sick with the flu? homework’s on blackboard. snow day? homework’s on blackboard. house burned down? use your fucking phone because the fucking homework’s on blackboard
its scary to think of what kind of person you were 365 days ago. I was anxious, boy-depressed, excited to end the summer, and just all over the place. last summer was also when i decided to come to australia, so at least I kept that promise.
364 days later, I feel like i have changed a considerable amount. I think about a lot more things than I used to, most of the time to the point of where they’re overwhelming and i have to calm myself down and realize you’re only one person and you can only change so much.
i keep struggling with the idea of having a few close friends vs. a lot of decent friends. close friends know exactly what you want, what you want to do, and love spending every second with you, but there are less of them. Decent friends are up for anything, there’s a lot of them to hang out with, but their loyalty is spread thin which can sometimes become an issue.
21 is such a defining age, and sometimes i wish it wasn’t. I hate putting so much pressure on myself to do things so perfectly because its whats expected.
I love being in australia, but yesterday i really did miss my friends back home. and i think thats ok. meeting and getting to know new people is tough, and i definitely forgot that, but it can only get better.
so yes, it has been an amazing 365 days, but more importantly, im excited to see what the next 365 will bring
you wish for one wish, and put all your energy into it. And then you wish another wish. and another. and somehow you wind up doing a whole lot of wishing and a lot less doing.
but when that one wish, the one you put so much thought and time and doing into finally comes true, you come to appreciate the time its taken for it to happen. and the one who finally made it come true
so thank you
