Good Advice That Finally Fit Me

As I have started this blog two years ago, I promised myself that this blog will be my virtual best friend - someone (perhaps, something) that I can tell all my crazy adventures to. All the fun, awkward moments all through out my journey as a college student. And I have gone from being that girl who cannot seem to make everything alright to that girl who seem to have everything right. (Not!) Things may have changed over the past couple of years and as much as I want to share every bit of detail, I can't. Because all through out those random rants and irrelevant blog posts about hurt, pain and even moving on (Gasp! I wrote about that?!) I've come to realize that some people like to keep some things private and obviously, I am trying to be one of them. (Oh, please! Who am I kidding) A note to self: Stop talking to self when writing. Another note to self: Stop contradicting thy self. Ugh this is even harder than I thought but I hope you guys are enjoying yourselves as I have much fun writing it. (I may or may not have laughed a few times because I think I've gone crazy while writing this but nope, this is my sane self everyone)

As I look back, I saw myself two years younger, I was that skinny girl - a fashion wanna be as some people may have addressed me. But all those crazy, awkward stages has got me to where I am right now. It wasn't easy to take that ladder but I'm glad I did. I am so glad I did. Couple of years ago I never thought I'd get into where I am right now, I never even thought I'd become so proud of myself, all I knew was I had a dream. And I'd do everything to pursue that dream. Technically, I haven't reached that dream yet - because it involves being in a real fashion world, I wanted to be a writer, a columnist, a journalist but I took up Bachelor of Science in Psychology instead. No shame though, I never thought I'd do a lot of things that being a Psych student has made me over come. I don't even want to tell you guys about it for it involves a syringe, some Formaldehyde (Actually a lot of it!) and more so it requires a strong stomach (idiomatic expression - the ability to handle very unpleasant things without feeling ill) 

If you are going to ask me why I ever chose Psychology instead of something else, I do not even know. (I am serious) But whenever I think about it I have no regrets (Okay, that's a lie. I have tons of regrets before but that's just because it was a bit harder than I actually thought) Reminding note to self: stop talking to self while writing. I may have made a lot of mistakes over the past years but choosing this course isn't one of them. (But dating douche bags, yes. Sorry!) Despite struggling, I'd like to believe that I am exactly where I wanted to be. And quite frankly, it is so much better. I never would have imagined myself being here in the first place. Two years ago I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life (ie. Taking up a course I randomly picked) but I knew where I wanted to land, so I worked for it. I worked for it for two damn years, and it was gahd damn worth it. So here's an advice I'd like to give to my old self (who felt like she was only struggling and no light would ever come her way because her life was just too tragic)

Work today, work tomorrow and enjoy every part of it. Life may seem dark right now but it'll pass. Those bad days shall pass. Focus on being you, focus on doing the things you love, the things you are passionate about. Because you get what you work for. Always.

So for everyone feeling down right now (and by down I mean sad or lonely oh you get it!) especially for those girls who feel lost, who can't seem to find the right direction, it's okay. It's actually okay to make mistakes, I have made a lot of mistakes in the past but what's important is to always, ALWAYS pick yourself up and don't let ANYONE (yes including your boyfriend, or in some cases your parents) take the sunshine out of your a$$. Don't let anything ruin your day, and most importantly your life. It maybe a bit shaky for you right now but you'll make it. You'll go through it with a bright smile on your face (and maybe a new bag or two.. it somehow helps.. me I guess.. *wink*)

Do everything with love
