It’s a part of human nature to do things that make the people around us happy. Lately it feels that I’m somehow giving my happiness away rather than spreading some of it around. I️ don’t want to be selfish and keep it all to myself but days go by that the pain is just unbearable. Maybe I️ just don’t know how to balance it but it’s hard to stop doing things for the people that you love.

The break between two and very similar stories. That pause hurts more than the actual songs that are playing. It is at that moment where every little thing from the song hits you. It is then when it hurts the most. You have a brief second to take it all in before you move on to the next sad story that will like the rest of them, break your heart.

This is my year, our year, to do extraordinary and out of the blue things. If there’s anything you’ve been wanting to do, do it. It’s not too late. Yes you could say I have my whole life ahead of me, but do I? This is how you should be living every day, like it’s your last day on earth. To think that today could end and you wouldn’t even know it. Do you want to die living your last day on earth watching tv on your couch? Or would you rather go out and do things that make you happy and yes occasionally make mistakes? It sucks because I know that I don’t live everyday like it could be my last but I know that I will try. I will keep reminding myself this because it’s one life that I’m given to be the most amazing person that I can be.

No one knows how it really feels until you go through it yourself. Just hearing things about it says nothing about the real pain it brings. It’s a different type of pain than physical pain. It is pain that is built around this overpowering feeling of love. No one really knows the emptiness you feel when it all goes away. It is the lack of love that pains the most. When you lose someone or yourself, it feels almost like you have no one else.

A letter to Boston, 
I want to address depression to you. it is one of the worst feelings a person could endure. I know that the term has been used very lightly in society nowadays. everyone seems to be “depressed”. but truth be told, it is real. I didn’t really notice it or notice how much it affected the things in my life until last year and that’s when I knew there had to be a change. I went through many different experiences this last summer, in which you could say helped me grow as a person. Loving myself was the best part of it all and it is you who made this happen. While you took some away, you also brought new people into my life. What you showed me was pure joy and I appreciate you so much for this. What I want most in this world is to come back to you.

Do you ever wonder why you are here? Do we have a purpose for just being? Just the idea of life is so complex because we are put on earth for a specific amount of time to live our lives and then we just go away. I hope to think that we were meant to be here for a specific reason but who really knows. I hope that what I choose to do with my life will make a difference in this world. It doesn’t have to completely change it, but I want it to do some good. The idea of it all is so strange because we are told to save up our money for something bigger and better but when is that something bigger and better going to come? We also worry about what jobs will give us the most money rather than what jobs will give us the most happiness. This is the harsh reality we have made for ourselves. I will try to keep reminding myself that we do not die and take money with us, but we do take the memories that we make here on earth.

It is really sad that so many people resort to ridiculing others to make themselves feel better. And the worst part is that they put up this facade that they want “love” and “peace” when really they are doing the exact opposite. You see every single human being is amazing in their own way. We all have imperfections. It is just that some imperfections are caught instantly through the eye making it easier to spot. But that gives no one the right to be mean. jokes are okay, even though this causes many misinterpretations. I just wish these people would actually focus on being a good person rather than focusing on how they can get people to think they are a good person when they really are not.

Homelessness is a huge problem in America but the biggest problem is the way people see perceive it to be. Many associate the homeless as drug addicts. Many also say that they are there because they put themselves there. And I can’t say that every homeless person hasn’t done these things but to merely just categorize this whole group into one specific stereotype is just wrong. I can’t speak on the behalf of every person who is homeless but I can say this: it is hard to avoid losing everything. I have seen someone go through this. it can happen so easily to anyone at anytime. I just think people need to be more mindful of others because it’s such a tough situation. Life isn’t easy and shit happens left and right. People need to put themselves in other people’s shoes and see past this stereotype they have created.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how important it is to know things. and what my personal definition on a “smart person” would be. I mean who really is smart? Is it the people who constantly study and look for answers in books that mean nothing to them or is it the people who learn about things they are actually curious to know about? I mean there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t doubt my intellect. Yet somehow I know how my mind works and I don’t think anyone else has a mind like mine. My thoughts and opinions are all authentic to me. and this is where I start to wonder, who is smart?

Appearances matter so much. The way a person presents themselves says a lot about what kind of people they are. I have encountered different types of appearances. There are those who have no problem going out of their way to make time for you and there are those who don’t. There isn’t really a right or wrong. It is just how you are as a person. Sitting up straight instead of slouching can say a lot about you. Or the way you dress and speak. these matter a lot especially when it comes to first impressions. it’s crazy how this is a way we can communicate our own persona to others without having to use a single word.

“It’s a terrible thing to live in fear” 
the fear of making mistakes is possibly one of the worst feelings you could ever imagine. I keep asking myself what my next step will be and it is so hard to answer. The truth is I don’t know and almost everybody around me doesn’t know. I understand that mistakes are normal. they are meant to happen so that we learn from them. they are meant to shape us. But it is still the scariest thing. I keep telling myself how boring life would be if it was perfect and nothing ever happened. Which is true. and trying new things is a part of life. however no matter how many times I tell myself this, the anxiety never leaves.

one of my teachers said this this week: “the things that happen in life are 10% of what happens and 90% on how you react to things”. I noticed how true this is. I believe our decisions are what make things happen. If we decide that we can be the best version of ourselves, we can be. of course bad things happen that we have no control over. but it’s how we deal with those bad things that define who and how we are.

today I noticed how much of the day I spend on day dreaming. i never really realized how I spend most of it doing this. this isn’t bad because I love how you can stop the world and suddenly be in another one. but does this mean that I don’t like reality? would I rather spend the time that I have pretending that I live in a another world and not live in the real one?

it's crazy how even with everything we perceive to be logic, it is our emotions that take over the initial reaction. when something happens we never first stop to think things logically, our thoughts, feelings, and personal connections to this are what decides the first reaction we have. It isn't until after that we look back at things and see it from an alternative perspective. so are emotions stronger than reason?

human hypocrisy:
they make this huge deal about spreading love and peace yet they are the ones who talk shit about other people.
they think that by being a vegetarian they're treating their body right yet they fill their lungs with smoke everyday.
they hate the fact that almost every form of interaction is through social media yet they die if they don't have their phone with them.
i am human.

we tend to fall in love with someone based on their appearance and their personality. we fall in love with their mannerisms. seldom do we fall in love with someone for their mind. the way they think or perceive things to be. this doesn't  actually happen often because people tend to overlook what's not obvious. I want to fall in love with someone's mind. what a beautiful concept.

I need to start doing things for me. take care of myself. get good grades. be healthy. make myself happy. I keep thinking if I make people around me happy I will be happy. which is not wrong unless it's not enough. and it isn't. I need to start doing things I love. and love myself. before I love other people. other things.

It's crazy how people know when your behavior towards them changes but they don't realize their behavior that made you change. maybe they don't realize that their actions hurt me or maybe they do who knows. all I know is that I confided in you. to make the right choice. and even though this year hasn't been our closest year I still expected you to stand by my side. I guess I was wrong. so if you're wondering why I'm like this you're asking the wrong person.
