I discovered something wonderful about myself on Saturday. As I was walking down a pathway at Oxy with some friends, we heard a woman behind us yell out in pain after falling down some stairs. Immediately, without thinking, I sprinted to her side and called Campus Safety upon inspecting her very injured, possibly broken ankle.
I can shine
As bright as any star
But I am so small
I am overpowered
By the moon
I’ve spent so much time feeling happy that I forgot what it felt like to feel broken.
I was on my way home from the East Bay after having a lovely conversation with my friend. Although I don’t frequent the East Bay, I do use Bart quite often, and I often take it alone. That being said, I come across many people, but none is more unsettling than the average male who decides it’s okay to cat call a woman.
“I need to tell you something. You may be my boyfriend, and believe me when I say you I love you a ton. But I love anatomy more than anything or anyone else in this world. If you ever think that I love you more than I love anatomy, I’m not sorry but you’re wrong.”
1. When you truly love someone, you love them in the ways they need you; not in the ways you want to. (C)
2. There is no point in rushing into the future because when you find the right person, a lifetime is long enough. (J)
3. Never settle for someone you only kind-of like. (D)
4. Do not run away from love when you find it. (B)
5. There is life after heartbreak. (T)
…you talk to your high school friends about the following things:
- Post-graduate life and careers
- Settling down and renting an apartment
- Marriage and children
I recently spent time with one of my best friends from high school. She’s terrible at communicating digitally, so every time we see each other, we have a lot of life updates.
It’s a long story.
I’m the type of person who cares a lot. Maybe even too much. I care too much too soon, and I care long after a person has left me. I’m the type of person who will constantly wonder if an old friend is okay, or if they’re struggling.
I had an incredibly productive day yesterday. Sometimes I get surges where I like to just send all the emails I’m supposed to send, and do all the things that were asked of me, and write all the little notes that I need to submit. I basically do all the things.
That being said, I haven’t written much on my blog about the whole reason why I started this blog in the first place: Fulbright.
