wow my queued posts from weeks ago are just now posting. it’s always so weird seeing your posts from a long time ago. it feels like i was a different person back then, even though i’m only a few weeks older. environments really do change almost everything. 

in may, i thought i was content with everything and where i was in life. people had told me “you never want to be comfortable” and i disagreed so much. i was comfortable and iT WAS AWESOME. I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT.

but one thing this summer has taught me is that there is so much more out there. more than you could even imagine. and now i finally understand why you don’t want to be comfortable. because now i’ve been given a taste of what the world COULD be like and i want it. and now i am no longer comfortable again. because desire has struck again. but the thing is, not being comfortable sucks. it’s a little bit scary, unknown, and dangerous. but isn’t that the beauty of it? i’ve learned to embrace it, because i found that the only antidote to worry is to have confidence in yourself (your own self, not others, not your significant other, not your parents, not your friends, but your own very soul and being). 

there’s so much more than the worries we have today; there’s so much more than the friend groups we know about and don’t dare to venture out of; there’s so much more than classes, tacos, parties, and nike shorts. there’s a lot more out there in life and everything will come to you if you reach out for it. something i discovered on acid is that there is a time and place for everything.

yes.

before you fall in love with anyone else, you need to fall in love with your own life first. people only enhance your already existing life; they do not create the majority of it.

i got this really vibrant backpack and someone called it “gay” but *shrugs*. i like it so i’m going to wear it. if we lived our lives dictated by other people’s thoughts, we’d never find out who we really are. never in this world will 100% of the world ever agree on anything.
