IT ALWAYS GETS BETTER. (Journal #172)
Every night before bed, I journal for one page. It’s a method I use to empty my mind before I go to sleep. This series will be updated daily, starting from my first day arriving in DC for school. It is important to note that the audience intended in these is MYSELF. Not everything is clear, and the journal sometimes gets choppy and random. However, it is my legitimate thought at the time, and I will never shy away from who I am. I am the person that thinks these things, and you deserve to know that. I am fully transparent with this project. It’s real.
I recommend that you journal; it does wonders for the mind. It’s like writing a story for your life, and I think that is something truly beautiful. Thank you for reading the documentary of my life.
Today was a great day. I wasn’t feeling too good before I went to the Pi Day social thing, but afterwards I felt great. I had a really good conversation at the social, and then I got to go check out some monuments to chill out for a bit. That is what I love about being here. I am so grateful to be attending such a great school. It makes me so happy and so proud. This is just the beginning, and life just got so much better after my first semester. IT ALWAYS GETS BETTER. I don’t know who needs to hear that right now, but it is true. You just have to be strong. Keep staying strong until it changes. One day, it just gets better. You don’t even have to ask for it. It just comes. I love my life so much. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. This has been a strong and productive week. It’s only going to get better from here. I honestly don’t know what else to write. Tomorrow I need to make solid progress on my essay prep. Maybe I’ll do my laundry. Something like that. Tomorrow is going to be a great day too. My conversation really gave me some hope, if I’m being entirely honest. I could slap it together and publish something. That way, time is working FOR me, and not against me. I really need to use my time well. I do have a lot of time on my side. For that, I am thankful.
