A new summer has started. It's been a while since I last wrote. A LONG while. But here goes.
I love living and I love being at peace. So much I have learned and keep learning about myself, others, life. It amazes me. I've learned to find peace and to always make sure to be at peace, with myself and anybody else that has affected me. Life is a journey and not everything is perfect. We go through things in order to become stronger and more aware of ourselves and each other. It's a learning process. A process that everyone goes through. To some, it may take more time to realize something, but in the end, we always learn and that's the fun part: experience. Experience everything that you can. And if you're afraid, it's okay, but never hold back because of it. Fear of suffering, fear of losing, fear of hurting, don't. I find it is so much better to experience all that once you take that risk. It's okay to suffer later, but you'll still have a great memory behind you that will make you smile. Not everyone thinks the same, and it is completely understandable. But, live all that you can and all that you can be. Share who you are and be who you really are. Don't hide. Don't think too much, just do.
I'm 21 now. This third year of college in SCAD was another year of growth and maturity to me. I can be a complete kid at times, but I can also be someone who can sit and talk for hours and hours about something serious, spontaneous, or just life. So much I've learned in the past is really changing me in ways today. I feel so much stronger, so peaceful at times. It was tough this last quarter at SCAD, taking difficult classes, trying to balance friends with classwork. Some of my classes were challenging and frustrating, but it all came down to one amazing, great experience and I'm glad I took the challenge. I learned more about myself, how much I can tolerate, how I handle things, how others handle things, how we communicate, how people react to certain situations, it is all very interesting. I don't look so much at grades anymore, I look at what I gained and I feel I gained a lot of life which means = satisfaction.
I still set my alarm clock every day mostly at 7 a.m or 7:30 or 8 a.m. Some people find it crazy and ridiculous. But I don't care. If I can wake up early and start running or biking, starting the day, that's the way I want to start my day. There are days where I do sleep in a little bit more, and sleeping does feel great but overall, I'd rather do something else.
I am now with my sister in Canada, staying here for 19 days. I wasn't ready to go home yet, I felt I needed a new environment to experience and enjoy. It's day two so far. It's amazing how a different location from the one previous, feels completely different. My surroundings, the people, the air, the feeling. But, it's a good, different people. I feel I always need this. Some kind of change. It's summer and I've already set my alarm for 7 a.m so I can start running in the park. I'm excited. I don't even know this place and I'm so excited of doing this every day. I'm also signing up for the gym tomorrow and will start working out everyday there as well. I can breathe. I'm starting to feel inspiration coming soon and that will also help me develop some film and motion graphic project ideas. My mind is rolling.
Life is pretty interesting, pretty amazing. I love the outdoors. Sit down and listen for a while, it's those small things that really get to me. It's all an adventure. A pretty amazing adventure. Just live it. Relax, and live it.
I hope everyone has a great summer. Be safe and take care.
P.S. I got a blog
