Love, Peace, and life....my crazy ride.
With 26 days left in my undergraduate college career, I have started reflecting on my journey throughout my four years and all of the things that I’ve learned! The experience of coming to college is by far one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. So with only 26 days left, yes 26 days, I want to share 26 of the most important lessons I have learned being an undergrad.
The first lesson, of many that I have come across is that no matter what you do you will never make everyone happy so you have to be who you are with no apologies or regrets. Now I know there’s the old saying “If you don’t have haters, you’re not doing something right” but this lesson goes deeper than that. It’s not being the person who literally just doesn’t care and says F*** it all the time, it’s about making real decisions for yourself. It’s about consciously making choices that is going to benefit YOU, that makes YOU truly happy and promotes YOUR well-being. Too many times we do things with others in mind and in the end we just end up unhappy, but when we’re saying yes to others we need to first make sure that we are not saying no to ourselves.
Although many would say that you don’t need to go to college to learn this lesson, I say college has allowed me to learn this lesson in a way that I would have never experienced it. This lesson helped me to choose my majors, and led me to my passion of therapy and directed me to grad school. This lesson also helped me choose friends who are really there for me, to make relationships with those who respect me and overall helped me become a young, independent, self-sufficient woman.
In the end it’s like what Dr. Suess said ”Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”
Nickleback is still one of my favorite bands. It may be lame but they get me through a rough day like no one else.

This Song Speaks to my Heart
Dreams, that’s where I have to go
To see your beautiful - face anymore
I stare at a picture of you, and listen to the radio
Hope, hope there’s a conversation
Where we both admit we had it good
But until then it’s alienation, I know
That much is understood - and I realize
If you ask me how I’m doing
I would say I’m doing just fine
I would lie and say that you’re not on my mind
But I go out and I sit down at a table set for two
And finally I’m forced to face the truth,
No matter what I say I’m - not over you (not over you)
Damn, damn girl you do it well
And I thought you were innocent
Took this heart and put it through hell
But still you’re magnificent
I’m a boomerang, doesn’t matter how you throw me
I turn around and I’m back in the game
Even better than the old me
But I’m not even close without you
And if I had the chance to renew
You know there isn’t a thing I wouldn’t do
I could get back on the right track
But only if you’d be convinced
So until then…
Not Over You- Gavin Degraw
