maybe it’s been months, years even, several long years. you think you’ll never love again. he/she/they will always be the one. but i’m telling you, they’re not. there are many “ones”. and maybe the next one will be the true one. but you don’t need them, you’ve got love in your life(friends, family, dogs, cats, etc). you’ve got yourself. and you are fucking awesome. you are beacon of goddamned light. i know, it’s easier said than done, way fucking easier. it will be hard, but that’s the adventure of it. and if you do end up finding love again, you are golden. you’ve made it. there’s a new person for you to smooch and hold. look, you survived! you survived.
So I’ve been kind of absent from Tumblr for the past month or so because I’ve made some pretty drastic life changes which shall now be explained.
1. I’ve officially left UBC and moved out of Vancouver. I’ve given myself until fall of next year to figure out whether I’m transferring to another school or if I’ll suck it up and go back in September to finish my degree.
2. My stuff and I are currently staying at my parents’ house in Eugene, Oregon. A day or so after arriving they had the biggest snowfall on record. I figured that’s my cue to start figuring shit out since I’m clearly too fabulous for this place to handle. Thanks God.
3. I’m looking at what I should do for the next 9 months of my life and a few possibilities have come up. For starters, I might be heading over to the Philippines in March for three months with an NGO to help with Typhoon Haiyan restoration so I’m super stoked about that. I’m also looking at an internship for over the summer in Edmonton and possibly squeezing a trip to either ES or Madrid somewhere in between.
Honestly the hardest part of all of this is not having control over everything that’s going to happen but it’s so exciting. Thanks to some of you who helped me and gave me advice while I was figuring all of this stuff out. I noticed some new followers so WELCOME TO MY WORK IN PROGRESS OF A LIFE. I’m glad you’re here. :D
Love you all.
