NYC with some of my youth group. So excited.
Don’t get me wrong.
The concept of Thanksgiving is absolutely amazing.
I’m so thankful for every moment,
good and bad,
every person and place I’ve crossed paths with.
i love idea of celebrating this holiday. The parade. The food.
But I’ve never had a good Thanksgiving. I love my Dad’s side of the family and all… but things are never smooth sailing with them.
Oh well. I’m thankful anyway. Not gonna let things get in the way.
Happy thanksgiving guys. As well as Happy Hanukkah.
and following the last post… i’m really excited because i thought i wasn’t gonna be able to be in Allshore Chorus (because i’m so busy with other things).. so i told people i didn’t want to be in it. But i kinda really wanted to try it out.
Try new things.
just like i told myself to do in a post from a couple weeks ago.
I finally have a chance to:)
We are so distant,
You and I,
I wonder why.
Sometimes i feel like changing everything around in my life.
i can get rid of the things that no longer interest me anymore.
i can change my mind… try new things… make different decisions…
I think when this school year is over, I’m really gonna focus on what makes me the most happy.
September and October were pretty terrible.
November has been going better, especially because I’ve been more optimistic: When I find myself getting stressed, losing confidence, doubting myself, instead of letting it get to me, I remind myself of what’s really important and how my troubles shouldn’t control me.
Also, I’ve had awesome nights with different awesome groups of friends these past few days. They weren’t the usual groups I hang out with, so i thought i was going to be really reserved and awkward and unexciting. But I thankfully wasn’t.
Thank goodness my school had some kind of teacher convention. These days off are exactly what I needed :)
I absolutely love trees in the fall.
Obviously because they’re pretty.
But mostly because they are so symbolic.
When I write poetry, I love writing about autumn and falling leaves because they can represent so much.
When trees’ leaves fall, it shows how sometimes, you need to start fresh.
It shows how you need to reveal the bare truth.
It can represent the idea of falling in love with someone.
It shows how letting go is beautiful.
It shows how change is necessary… how change is beautiful.
Some may look at leaves falling as a sad ending.
But to me it marks a beautiful beginning.
