I Look Outside Of My Window And I See Me

The dark skies, the changing trees, and the noise of the cars are all soothing to my soul.

I Look Outside Of My Window And I See Me
London Cyclist

Right now, outside of my window, I see gray skies, half naked trees, leaves blowing in the wind and cars chasing their routes home. I never knew the meaning that the outside world could have, but that is because I never looked into it like I am today. Each of those "outside world" characteristics has a different meaning to me.

Gray skies represent how I feel when I don't do anything. The gloominess of the sky shows the boringness of my life. Yes, it is good to take some time for yourself, here and there, and that is what I am doing today. I could not imagine doing this everyday. Sitting inside, watching a 16 hour and running "Law & Order: SVU" marathon, drinking caramel, pumpkin coffee and not doing my hair or makeup is a representation of "gray" to me. Today is gray.

The half naked trees show how our days are winding down and changing. The seasons are (trying to) changing and the year is coming closer to an end. The half naked trees are shedding their current skin in order to regain the strength they need to make it through the long cold days. It is beautiful how different aspects in nature change to regulate their lives.

The leaves blowing in the wind mean fall, and it is just that that gives me light. Fall is an amazing and beautiful season. The bold, crisp smell of the leaves, the smell of hot apple cider at every craft festival, the blanket scarves and knee-high boots at the pumpkin patch, and most of all, Friday night and Saturday afternoon football games all mean "fall." The leaves blowing around outside represent different qualities of the fan season.

Cars chasing their routes home are just people chasing their dreams. After a long day of work, the driver of the car cannot wait to get home, change and spend the rest of their day and night with their loved ones. Coming home after a long day is the best feeling. Having friends and family there to support you in your endeavors is great. Cars chasing their routes home are just people chasing their dreams of living a happy and successful life.

Do you get it? Outside is more than just nature. Read into it, different things have different meanings. The gloomy, gray skies, the half naked trees losing their color, leaves blowing in the wind and cars chasing their routes home are all representations of different aspects and qualities in my life.

Think about what your life means and what can represent those qualities to you. Take a breath from the chaos and do what you love. Show others that your life has meaning, even if it is only seen by yourself.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.
