Life May Be Good Now, But Make Sure It Only Gets Better

Life May Be Good Now, But Make Sure It Only Gets Better

Make it the best for the rest.


I don't believe there will be one part of my life that's monumentally better than the rest of it, because I believe that every day somehow gets better than the one before.

So many people say their "glory days" where in college, some delusional people even say high school, and I think that's unfortunate.

Even though both college and high school have been amazing times in my life full of learning and growth, I don't think I will ever call either the best time of my life because I refuse the notion that the best time of my life has ended.

I think many people consider these times in their life to be the best because of the lack of responsibility associated with both, and I think there lies the problem.

People graduate and think it's all downhill from there because now they are responsible for fully taking care of themselves, but full responsibility for your own life means you have all the tools you need to make it amazing.

Education, experience, and networking have brought you to a place to go out into the world and do what you enjoy.

Yes, this means holding down a job, but that's why it's so important to find a career path you enjoy.

They say if you love what you do you won't work a day in your life. Now, isn't that the kind of life we all want to live?

We're continuously moving into different chapters of our lives and we shouldn't spend our days crying because certain parts of our lives are over, we should smile because they happened and we created memories we'll have forever.

Enter every new aspect of your life with the same enthusiasm you had the night before move-in day at your dream university and the rest of your life, will be the best of your life.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
