“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see your greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”

Welcome to my blog! A little bit of everything here. Literature, art, goals, and ambitions.

It’s very tempting when you really want to be with someone to settle for much, much less — even a vague pathetic facsimile of less — than you would have ever imagined. Remember always what you set out to get and please don’t settle for less. These guys exist because there are a lot of women out there who allow them to.

It’s Almost Spring Break!

I want to read books and watch some good movies. I still haven’t watched Oldboy, so get on that. Spring break I wanna get some reading done. My mom and I are gonna go to Atlantic City for a few days to relax, eat, and shop! I’ll definitely have to stop by the library and get some books before we go. Apparently there isn’t internet unless you go to the 7th floor, so I need something to do in our room. I’m so excited now that I think about it. It’s sweet that my mom is trying to spend time with me and take me out eating and shopping. I need to be nicer to her and do things for her more. I should help out cleaning the floors and doing the dishes when I go home. I realize how wonderful my family is once I go to college because there are people I know who are not nearly as fortunate as I am.

Read More & Cherish Alone Time

I love reading books, and I want to become more literate, so I am gonna set out some readings goals to make sure that I continue reading! It’s hard for me to remember to do alone-time things in college when people are constantly hanging out. But suck it up. Enjoy and cherish the alone time, especially because next year and the years after that I’ll probably have a roomie unlike this year. I have one this year, but she isn’t there ever, so I might as well not have one. It’s nice and peaceful so I’m pleased with the way things turned out. I’m always trying to take advantage of the fact that I have complete privacy in my room. I even tried belly dancing with a scarf wrapped around my pants as an embellishment.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.
