““Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?””
It’s been a year since I graduated last May and I expected this really big reflective moment, but I was vacationing on an island off of Korea and totally forgot about my one year anniversary from UGA. Haha. I think that says a lot though, that I’m doing exactly what I sought to do after college — live by my own accord. I pretty much do what I want, when I want, and how I want. I couldn’t ask for more at the moment.
Another 1 year anniversary coming up is the the end of my contract with my job as a NET (native english teacher) for my school in Korea! I wish I did more to update my experiences on this blog, but I know that I had a blast here and probably learned more about myself by teaching children then they did from me. I really do love my job and I verbally agreed to stay another year, so I hope to do so.
It’s funny to see that my life has changed so much in a year — I’m doing things that I’ve never imagined doing and I hope to continue this way. I can’t wait to see where I’ll be when I celebrate my 2nd year as an Alum of UGA.
Until then, I’ll just keep doing me.
