Real talk
My consistency with posting has been spotty at best and this post is dedicated to explain that. In the past I have said that school got busy or that there was some other thing that came up, but this time, it was much more than that. It was school, and friends and family and just life that got in the way.
            Sometimes you get to the point where you need to take a step back and reevaluate why you are doing what you are doing and if it’s what you really want. But most importantly, you need to think about if it makes you happy.
College, looking past the glossy pages of the admission catalogues and picturesque Instagram pictures of people laughing is only a very small part of the picure. What the photos don’t show are the harsh realities that every college student faces.
The reality of it is the long nights, with your head in your hands trying to calm yourself down over the amount of work you have, reminding yourself to eat and when you do eat, eating everything in sight, dragging your butt out of bed to go to class, arguing with friends because everyone’s patience is running thin, and struggling through a class that has you questioning your career path, and breaking down at the thought of not knowing what to do.
            This post isn’t to enlighten everyone on what happens in college, it’s to let you know that because it does happen, its ok to not know what you want to do with your life. It’s ok to change your major, even when you were hell bent on being a Chemistry major and realizing that maybe, it’s not what you expected it to be. It’s ok to not be ok, and to not know what your next move is. What’s not ok is to fall into the pit and stay there, you need to pick yourself up, regroup and turn to the people you want to help you through this and want you to succeed.
            For me, these past few months have been about falling apart and putting myself back together, into a stronger and better person. One who is excited to go to her classes instead of dreading ever hour of the day and praying I get through the day and repeating the process all over again when the sun comes up. That is what this blog is dedicated to, its for everyone who has fallen apart and needs some help, for those who have put themselves back together and want confirmation that someone else knows how they feel, and its for those anywhere in-between. This space is for you all to escape for just a little bit, to give yourself the emotional, mental and at times physical break that it needs in order to keep going.
Please share this so that people know they aren't alone, so that people can understand they have a friend through all of this.
