Too long

Been an extremely long time since I have written on here last. Sometimes life seems to be too much to handle and you need to take a step back. Between having a job, school, and other priorities breaks are needed. Time for your mind and body to relax so you don’t go crazy! That is exactly what I have been lately because of stress. Why do people expect so much out of young kids these days when we have twice as much to worry about?

Let me begin with college costs more than double it did when our parents were once in school. Classes are more demanding and are needed if you want to go anywhere in life. We have to work long hours on top of going to school full time to pay for our college expenses. Why can’t life be simpler? You learn more from being hands on, not from 3 hour lectures where you go over exactly what you could read out of a book. I believe in experiences help you learn. Memorizing 3 chapters for a test does not prove you learned anything. I do not agree with the all the priorities us young people are given today by parents, teachers, etc.

Realize what your too priorities are in life then go after the things you want. If you try hard enough and believe in yourself you can do anything, and whether that involves school or not is your choice. Don’t put too much unnecessary stress on yourself so young. Eventually we figure out that things we worried about a week ago was a smaller problem than it appeared to be. Relax, breathe, and be happy. Life’s too short to be anything but that.

Why do we feel lonely?

I am surrounded by so many loved ones but still feel alone. I have spent plenty of time with my friends and family over the past few days and still just want to be my myself. Why is it that we feel like this? I know I always do after I lose someone in my life that I wanted there. I think about the memories and realize that I probably won’t see that person for a long time. They have moved on to someone better suited for them. Hey, shit happens, but what could I do about it? Never look back unless its to see how far you’ve come. When I see how far I’ve come from previous experiences I realize this is only a bump in the road. This weather has a lot to do with this slump I’ve been in as well. Michigan weather is as bipolar as my life. Some sunshine and warm weather is a must for this girl in the next few weeks. A trip to Florida is in the making, even if I have to go on my own lol! People around here aren’t very spontaneous to just up and leave for a little while. Just have to look on the brighter side of things and remember everything will be different in a month and feelings always change
