“Life puts you anywhere.” Do you ever feel like you are moving, pursuing, living without any initial direction? Does your future, as uncertain as it seems, give you discomfort? Think about it, but then take time to think about the fact that you are still active. You are moving, pursuing, living, though you may be … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 7 – Going Nowhere in Particular
(April 12, Tuesday) My dreary, long walks to and from restaurants and classes mostly consisted of me thinking about the direction of the next week. I observed the life around me and realized that everything seemed normal to everyone else. I'm in my own world of disbelief. Summer is coming and I'm not nearly as … Continue reading College Day 199 – Finding Figurative Matter
As positive and hopeful as I might seem, I have absolutely no idea where I want my future or where my future is headed. I have a dream and a goal, and that is about it.

(August 24, Monday) It was the first day of classes! My professors are fantastic and my classmates likewise. I can't wait for more great times in my classes. I know the assignments will be rough, but the class itself won't shut me down. (Also, every day trying to get lunch is annoying. I have to … Continue reading College Day 7
