When life gives us lemons, make lemonade? Or squeeze them in our eyes to make the problem go away? This week has been an emotional roller-coster, comparable to the Hulk. In essence, it's funny how much your life can change in a snap of a finger, but in reality it's horrid. The unexpected, becomes the expected of consequences.
So aside from being all doom and gloom this weekend, I want to apologize for not posting. We all go through some rough patches in our lives ( and though I thought mine were said and done..), we can officially say that this is (another) one of mine.
So...where to start?
1) Midterms. I had midterms this week, and I continue to have them next week. It couldn't be at a worse time where my brain and mind is all wishy washy! The worst thing about midterms is that they are your constant reminder that finals will be here in two months. Or less.
2) This weather. I can't keep up. One minute it's freezing, and the next it's 80 degrees outside. Can it please be fall already and not a repeat of torrential heat? If it wants to snow-that's fine to!
3) Friends. In tough times, I think we really find out who our true friends are. Or at very least, the true colors of someone. These past few days have been an eye opener for....life.
4) Growing up. Sometimes I wish I could just hit the rewind button to re-do certain situations in my life, or avoid them. I wonder why when we are ten years old we wish to be thirteen, then thirteen we wish to be sixteen, sixteen? eighteen. Eighteen? twenty one. Why are we having a constant countdown of our lives instead of enjoying youth for what it is?
5) Rumors. People are always going to talk about you, whether you like it or not. Just how quickly your life can turn, people can talk, and rumors spread. But why care? Let people say whatever they want about you and get on with your life. At the end of the day, you know who you are and what you believe in... that's all that matters!
6) Discouragement. The worst part of a bad situation is when someone tells you that you can't do something. You no longer have a support system, let alone THEY support system, that you once thought you had. The most important thing is to stand up and act for what you believe in and not what others believe. For example: once upon a time i was dating an older guy that I really liked. He was iffy with text message (which turned out to be because he was a major player!) but for whatever reason, I always needed confirmation on "what to say". Once I asked my friend and took a message response word-word from what she said. This backfired immensely and for many different reasons. One being: she didn't know the guy I was going on a date with (unlike me). Secondly although I read it and thought it looked and sounded ridiculous/wrong I continued to send it. Why? because I felt out of options (and that she might have been right even though i felt in my heart it was wrong). ALL dating nightmares aside, this is a very true concept. You know whats right in your head. Act on it and not what others want you to say or do.
