Love & Life

October 02 2014

When I subscribed to the Listserve this summer I never thought I'd be chosen to write so soon! I've always thought of what I would write if I ever had the opportunity but of course now my mind is blank.

So I've decide to write about three things that are important in my life at the moment.

1. Music: Music has always been a huge part of my life. I've never been the type of person to say what I'm feeling or what is on my mind but I feel I can express my feelings through music.
Here is some good music I've been into lately and favorites that I've always loved:
OctaHate by Ryn Weaver
Oblivion by Bastille
The Mother We Share by CHVRCHES
Ed Sheeran
Mayday Parade
The City and Girls by The 1975

2.Samantha: I see the love of my life this week after being apart from her for almost two months. Many people roll their eyes or look at me in disbelief when I tell them that I've found "the one" at 22 years old. I can honestly say that I have. When I was 18 I had a relationship with someone that I was so sure of being the one. I was certain that they were possibly the person I could spend the rest of my life with. As time went on things started to change and so did the both of us. She started planning important things in her life and I was just waiting to start mine. Eventually, our relationship ended and I realized so much at this point in my life. I realized that I needed to learn to love myself first and find happiness within myself and not others. Looking back on that time I realized how much I was in love with the idea of us more than the person I was with. Now, in my current relationship I know how it feels to find your better half and be in love with them through every obstacle. She makes me want to be a better person and strive to do well in life. I'd be lost without her and I can't wait to see her.

3. College: Since before I graduated high school I always wanted to go to college and try to further my education. Towards the middle of my senior year after I had applied to Penn State my step mother told me I wouldn't make it. She said that I wasn't made for college and it would be hard for me to succeed. Immediately I became scared and worried that she was right and took a year off after high school to work and practice to get into a music school. I ended up learning a lot about life. Working for a restaurant, retail, and the post office. A year turned into four and I was approaching my one year mark at the post office with a pretty decent pay and hours when I realized I wasn't happy. I didn't want to do this for the rest of my life. So, I decided to go back to college and forget about all my fears. My stepmother and father felt the same exact way as they did when I graduated high school which only fueled my desire to succeed more. Now, I am about a month into my first semester and I'm doing great so far and I plan to graduate with my nursing degree.

Overall, don't let anyone tell you can't do anything because you can do anything with hard work and determination. I know that is cliche but it's true.
I would love to get to know any of you and I'm here if anybody needs to talk or vent. It's a tough world out there and sometimes we just need someone to listen.

Feel free to send you favorite song and/or artist to me and I'll return the favor:)

I hope you all have an amazing week!
