It seems like just yesterday that I was terrified thinking about how am I going to survive college. Now I am halfway through and I can't imagine my life being any other way.

It is insane to think that I am already halfway through my college career. Not to be cheesy, but it seems like yesterday that I was moving in and starting an entirely new chapter in my life. I couldn't imagine not being where I am today, with the friends I have met and the memories I have made. This past year and semester especially has been the best of my college career so far. I have made so many new friends in my sorority and from work too. I have loved getting to know and hanging out with new people, as well as becoming closer with the friends I already had. The semester definitely would not have been the same without these people in my life.

I am having so many mixed feelings about the end of the semester. Part of me is so ready for the semester to be over. I am definitely ready to be done with the work and I want finals to be over with ASAP. I am also getting tired of the same routine every single day. Don't get me wrong, I love my school, my friends, and everything, but there comes a time when you just need a change. Knowing that I am going abroad in the fall also contributes to this feeling. I am going to be in a totally different country and place, so if that doesn't give me enough change I don't know what will. The excitement for abroad is also making me wish the this semester would just end already. I am also really looking forward to spending the summer at home with my family and friends because who knows where I will be next year.

On the other hand, this semester needs to pause for a little bit. Like I was saying before, I have just started forming so many new and amazing friendships, and I am not ready to leave them yet. Why couldn't I have met these people earlier? I feel like I have had such little time with them and now I am going to be gone. We have already had so much fun together and I hate that I won't be here to make more memories next semester. I also have friends that are abroad now and are coming back, and friends that are going abroad next spring that I won't see. I know that I will still keep in touch with them, but it makes me sad that I won't be able to see them for so long. I have serious FOMO and don't want to miss out with time with my friends, but I know that being abroad is going to be one of the best times of my life.

It is insane that I'm going to be a junior next year… I am definitely not ready for that. Even though I have already been in college for 2 years, I still feel like I'm not ready to keep growing up. Being a junior makes being an actual adult more real. You're telling me that I'm going to start looking for internships and thinking about a real, adult job? That's not real. The fact that my time in college is already halfway over terrifies me. It has all gone by way too fast and I need the next 2 years to slow way down. I have made some of my best memories in college, and I don't want this time in my life to be over. My mom has always said that college is the best 4 years of your life. I knew that college was going to be great, but at the time I was too terrified to believe it. Now that I am already halfway through those 4 years, I definitely don't want it to end yet.

Sometimes I Prefer The World A Bit Blurry

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months.

Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.
