A Letter About Heartbreak...6 Months Later

I look back at how different of a person I was six months ago, and how I've allowed heartbreak to help me develop who I am and what I want to do in life.

A Letter About Heartbreak...6 Months Later
Madasyn Andrews

I remember the night he broke my heart. October 11, 2018, and he told me he got into a new relationship right after we ended things back in August, but was too afraid to tell me and hurt me.

That rest of that month was a blur of depression, anger, and frustration. I sent horrible impulsive texts to him, I cried and slept and skipped class, I bought a pack of cigarettes, etc.

It got easier as time went by. I had to learn that life doesn't stop for me, it just keeps on going no matter what happens. So there's really nothing to do but move on. They're not wrong when they say time heals, so one piece of advice is: be patient.

And now it's six months later - April 2019. Six months! Wow. I still get sad sometimes, but not as often and not as painful as before in the past.

Spring has sprung. The air feels fresher, the flowers start blooming, the weather becomes nicer. And the weed smokes better too! It's a new season, one of growth and new life.

I've been grinding, working and putting all my energy and time into my passions and it's helped me rediscover myself and what truly makes me who I am.

I'm on to bigger and better things with my life now. I am happy. Thriving. Blossoming. Growing.

To my ex, thank you. I love you and will always cherish our time together because you taught me a lot and were a wonderful first love.

I hope wherever you are, whatever you're doing, that you're doing okay and are happy. I've forgiven you for breaking my heart.

Our time together has ended, but our journeys have only just begun. If we never cross paths again, then so be it. I only wish you the best, and love always.

I remember freshman year like it was just yesterday. I remember frantically walking to my first class with my highlighted map of campus in hand trying to get there early to get a front row seat. I remember learning that college exams are very different from high school ones. Studying the night before an exam just doesn’t cut it like it used to. Through the good, bad and the ugly of my freshman year, I knew everything was going to be OK because I was only a freshman. I didn’t know any better! It was only going to get easier right?

Goodbye August, Hello September

Why August is the longest month and the transition to fall is warmly welcomed.

Hannah Cook

August was a long month. This year, it was probably my longest month. It felt never ending. The end of the month felt so far away.

My Ultimate Study Playlist

A list of 50 indie songs perfect for studying.

My Ultimate Study Playlist

Recently, I have started to listen to music a lot more while I'm studying; I've found that it helps keep me motivated and focused, and I have taken a lot fewer study breaks because of it. I had been playing around with what type of music was better to listen to while I study compared to other tasks, for example, the genre of music, tempo, etc. Personally, I have found that I study best when I listen to slower tempo indie music, and for perspective, I have curated a list of my favorite 50 songs to listen to while studying. Enjoy!
