i’m laying down, its 6 am and i’m in my apartment in atlanta. that’s crazy for me to even say. i moved. across the country. my biggest accomplishment of the decade was graduating early with a 3.6. my biggest change was moving to go to graduate school. these things happened within the same month. within a month, my whole world has literally changed. while my heart aches, for fear of the new, it also smiles. this is my chance to start over. to be me from the beginning. i’m nervous while excited. sad but happy. the complexity of these emotions is interesting. it’s all new. all of it. so i am writing to tell God and my angels thank you for your support in 2019 and all the years prior. i devote this year to serving You and fulfilling my purpose.
tomorrow is my 20th birthday!!! i’m super excited. today i spent the day cleaning. i was determined to declutter my space and i helped my sister declutter hers. i woke up with the urge to clean because i wanted to start my new year off right! my new year starts tomorrow and i’m so excited. i used to clean a lot more than i do now, but it was because life was easier and more fun when it was clean. one of my old friends told me that i cleaned in efforts to maintain control when i felt that nothing was in control. i think that’s true. cleaning empowers me. i feel happy and refreshed. a clean space means a clearer mind. i focus better and am much more productive. to me, a good clean is taking care of me and my emotional self. you need that clean. so go clean and feel the greatness of it.
Today I had my first day of college! I was so excited about it, and the inspirational messages from my family members just really reiterated how lucky I am to have been given such a supportive loving family. I went for a more professional/ cutesy look- I wore a black dress with a pair of leggings under and TOMS (just because I knew it would be cold in the classrooms. I’m taking four classes- Intensive Spanish (lecture and discussion), Topics in Music, UROP (undergraduate research opportunity program), and a writing seminar about Riots, Police, and Justice in the 1960s. I’m really excited to start this new chapter in my life. I’ve went to three of the four classes today, which all seemed interesting. I’m excited to go to my writing seminar tomorrow (which is my only Wednesday class- bonus it doesn’t start until 4). I’ve already gotten homework in my other three classes (I even went to the library today). Though today was really tiring (I even took a thirty minute nap), I feel like it was the start of my new journey. And a part of that journey was to change my blog link! It’s officially my blog now (like I don’t have the .wordpress.com anymore!). I did a couple changes to the theme to make it a little more me. I cannot wait to see what is in store for me and I’m so excited to be a freshman at THE University of Michigan! Go blue!
It’s officially 2016!!! This is going to be a year of big changes, first being my blog! I changed the look and have decided to focus more on my blog and other important social topics. I plan to blog twice a week (at least) and plan to be more open with my friends and family. I want to become more open and work on my communication. Also, remember that everything that has happened thus far is for a reason and has a lesson behind it. It’s important to take everything as a learning experience and let go! May 2016 bring you happiness, joy, love and hope! Happy New Year!
As 2015 comes to a close, take this time to reflect what’s happened this year and what your goals are for the next year. I know that this year has been large in charge for me. I was able to grow a lot as person and met people that have forever changed my life. I think the most life-changing experience was going to Michigan State for four weeks. I learned a lot about education (what I want to major in) and myself. But the real question is what do you want to accomplish this year? I plan on getting the rest of my college fees paid for, going to college and revamping my blog. What’s on your list?
