Different Person Than Before

We think we need to be the same person forever or we want to change ourselves but we can do both.

"I'm a different person to who I was this time last year"-Unknown

It is a known fact that we all change as we grow up in each stage of our lives, from a young child to pre-teen, teenage year and finally adulthood. In each of these stages of life, we change our hair style, clothes, interests and so much more. What is surprising is that we change quite more than expected in college. At the beginning of college, we may be thinking we know exactly who we are but as time goes on, we see the world through different eyes. In college, we are allowed to change different parts of ourselves if we want or stay the same because this is a fresh start to relevant who we are.

"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then"-Lewis Carroll

When we enter into high school it is all so new and experiences the famous feelings of being nervous but excited for the unknown world we are entering into.Those four years seems to either be best or worse time of our lives. We may start to feel older and know how we are but high school has to end eventually and we have ventured into either college or working in the real world. Once we leave those school doors for the last time, the world changes. We have to view it through a different set of eyes because we are different whether we choose to admit it or not. The truth is that we are no longer children and as much as we wish we could back to that time, we can not and we have to make decisions that will affect our future.

"Remember you are a different person now than before. You are wiser and stronger for the trials that you have been through"-Leon Brown

After we start college, we experience the familiar feelings we experienced four years at the beginning of high school but now they mean something different. These feelings mean we no longer can rely on our parents to catch us when we fall and we have to make our choices without having our parents there to back us up. Also, proof that we are about to enter a new chapter of our lives that will be a terrifying but rewarding experience to help us prepare ourselves to what's come next in our lives. We discover people who may become our closest friends that we would not have met otherwise. We will on go adventures that will push us outside of our comfort zone. We grow into a more confident person and know what we want. My freshman year of college is almost over, and I just feel like I am a different person than when I came here all those months ago. I am working on being more confident person and allowing myself to discover who I am and what out of this life.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
