As I write this post, the sun is setting on my last full day in Boston before I return home for ten days, just to come right back up here. Naturally, I am procrastinating packing up all of my things, (sorry, Mom!) and feel inspired to write.
My sophomore year is over. I don’t know how this happened to be honest. It feels like this school year just started, which makes me nervous for the upcoming years. I want more time to take life in and experience it at a time when I don’t have much responsibility.
This year has brought the biggest surprises, new adventures, amazing friends, and a new attitude. I’ve learned so much in many different aspects of life.
I’ve adopted new mentalities recently, focusing on spending more time alone and figuring out what hobbies I enjoy the most and trying to only spread positive vibes out into the world. Thus far, both are working well. Right now, I enjoy playing the ukulele, reading, and walking around Boston while listening to music. I’m surrounding myself with people who I feel really appreciate me and what I have to offer into the world. I’ve learned a lot through these friendships, and I honestly cannot remember the last time that I was this happy. I’d like to personally thank those friends for lifting my spirits on days when I felt down. I hope you all know who you are and how much you mean to me.
I’m staying in Boston this summer, which is something that I was initially nervous about. It involves challenging myself on multiple levels. I’m saying “no” to living in the comfort of my home with my wonderful parents. I decided that I’m going to live on my own a little while longer. I don’t think that it will all be a walk in the park. I’ll get lonely and feel FOMO with my friends from home, but my ultimate goal is to grow as a person. I hope to busy myself with exploration, work, and self care. I can’t wait to travel to Maine, Cape Cod, New York, and take on my family’s annual beach trip. But most of all, I’m excited to see one of my favorite cities come to life in the summertime.
Don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted!!!!!
-Thanks for livin’ life with Annie 🙂
