Summertime Gladness

My summer has had it's ups and downs, but I never want it to end.

July 8th, 2017.

It's been almost two months since I got home for the summer. It's been one of my best summers ever. I have reconnected with so many friends and grown stronger with those who stand by me. It's weird to think that 2017 is already halfway over, and so is my summer.

Of course, this summer hasn't been completely perfect. I've lost a couple of friends who I used to consider my best friends. However, it's taught me a valuable lesson. It's shown me that not everyone will be around forever, and you have to cherish the time you are given with someone.

I also had one of my best friends hospitalized this past month. She went in for bronchitis and ended up being diagnosed with pneumonia. There was standing liquid in her lungs, and it had to be drained. Luckily, she is out and okay; but it was a tough time for her.

Of course, there have been some good and big things that have happened so far this summer. I got a boyfriend! I honestly could not be any happier with him, and I hope with all of my heart to keep making amazing memories with him. I also got a tattoo, making my count 4. It's one of my favorite tattoos, and I could not have asked for a better artist to do it.

Lastly, I made my first real "adult" purchase. I bought my first car! It's a 1996 Ford Mustang. Sure, it's not the best car, but it makes me proud to think i saved up the money and was able to afford my own car.

I can not wait to see what else this summer has in store. It's been a a roller coaster so far; and I don't want this ride to end.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
