Rise up and be …

Rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die.

Gold

Here’s a little piece of gold I found on Reddit:

“…relationships are about decisions. You make the decision to devote yourself to this person, even though you are risking missing out on other experiences. That’s just the way it is. I personally think a good relationship is worth the cost, but I can’t speak for you. But make no mistake: relationships aren’t about feelings or soulmates or fate. They’re about being better together than you would be individually. They’re about being yourself, but becoming the best version of yourself, by learning to give up on those things that are small and petty and selfish. If relationships were about feelings, they’d all end the first time someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Relationships are about intentionally giving and receiving love in this big scary world, and that can only happen on purpose, not because of feelings or serendipity.”

Jess and I didn’t work out, but I can honestly say that I gave my 100%. Sometimes things just don’t work out even when you give it your best. It’s a really shitty feeling but one I can’t dwell on, I gotta take what I learned from this experience and move on from it.

Besides, my new job is sick as fuck haha! Money here I come 🙂 🙂

Hey

I think it would be cool to live in Sydney, Australia. Just like how some drunk guy would think it would be cool to live in California.

 

Just sayin ;D

5 Years Ago

Where was I, five years ago?

In 2007, I was in the first year of my (6 year <_<) undergraduate college career. I was worried, scared about what the hell I wanted to do with my life, what 4 year college I wanted to transfer to, and what I wanted to do as a profession. I was a little overweight, shy, and very unsure of myself. I remember only having my girlfriend and her family as my main social group. I also remember still being stuck in high school mode, in which I really didn’t take school seriously because I cruised through it, but thinking that because I cruised through school with great grades, I didn’t really find a lot of interests. I was still working for my girlfriend’s parents’ dog grooming shop. I think the big difference from then and now is that I didn’t really see the big picture in things. I went to school, worked, played video games, and just let life cruise by. I had no idea where I would be 5 years from then, and didn’t really give much thought because I was in cruise control mode still. All I knew was that I wanted to graduate college just like my older brother, because his graduation ceremony was pretty badass.

Now, I’m finally pursuing a massage therapy career, am going to be taking prerequisite courses for physical therapy school, and am looking forward to making something of myself. I’m realizing I’ve accomplished a lot so far and I have much more to look forward to, and while I still have the young naive mentality in which I have my Bachelor’s degree and want the high paying job right now, the reality of it is that it is going to take more work, school, and debt to get there. Motivation is key in pursuing these things.

One step at a time, we will accomplish big things.

Run your own race.

You rock

I fuckin rock. And so do you. I’m a lil high but I just wanna say that I love my life right now and the world rocks. If you don’t love yourself and your life then make changes and make it happen my friend. Life’s too damn short, and we only have so much time to make an impact. I have a new job, talking to an amazing girl, and great friends. I couldn’t ask for much more. I’m gonna sound like a damn hippie but spread the love because that shit’s infectious and its goddamn awesome.

Go A’s!!

Wow

I have some serious fucking demons within me. I really don’t think people sleep the way I do sometimes. Tossing and turning all night, with a zillion negative thoughts degrading me and shooting me down… I think I snapped and went apeshit in my dream, screaming and all. Is this normal?
