Endings and Beginnings

start - finishToday is the end, well almost nearly the end, of the first semester of my Sophomore year in college.  And, it feels great!  Why?  Because I know every ending is really just a new beginning sad thing is it can often take a whole semester to learn/remember that.

Randomness…

As I sit on my bed looking around the room of my childhood I realize this room while comforting no longer holds the same importance (for lack of a better word) it once did.  Then I realize I’ve grown up, maybe not entirely, but I have matured.  This doesn’t mean I’m not still creative or don’t have childlike qualities but I don’t need this space as much as I once did.  It’s a very bittersweet feeling.

Off, Off & Away

The day is August 31, 2012, and my clock currently reads 1:19 AM.  By the time you read this post I’ll already be a plane, halfway to Boston to begin my sophomore year in college.  But that’s not why I’m writing this post, sure I could write about my family, and valuing every minute with others, and saying goodbye, yada yada yada but I’m trying to steer out of the pit of emotions that I often live in.

Instead this post is about my summer and all the things I’ve accomplished and you can accomplish in three months.

Dear Aziza,

Dear Aziza,

I have much to tell you and not so much time to tell it so I have decided to write you a letter, hopefully this will do the trick.

I have much to tell you and not so much time to tell it so I have decided to write you a letter, hopefully this will do the trick.

In less than a year you will have graduated from Lawrencehill, and though you do not know it yet you will have changed. But that is not what is important what is important is that you not be afraid to be yourself. I know that your life hasn’t been easy, your father is not around, and you mother, for the most part, is consumed with her work. And when she is there all she does is nag you. You have never felt like she really understands who you are but you’ve always been too afraid to tell her. So afraid that instead of being yourself you’ve hid it in a little box under your bed and have tried as hard as possible to live up to her expectations.

Day 1- July 6, 2012

I love this blog. I know it’s simple and still in the works but wasn’t I just in her position almost two weeks ago!? No she’s not talking about loss, or heartbreak, or finding herself, actually all she is talking about in this post is herself. But that is what makes it great, it’s a… Read more »

Be Nice!

We should consciously focus on being nicer and open to others because sometimes we don’t realize how much the little day to day mannerisms, for example, can hurt others. 

I have always consider myself to be a nice person.  The type that is always looking out for others and whole makes an effort in every situation to look at the issue from both sides before making judgement.  I had NEVER thought of myself as a mean person, sure I have loner tendencies, times when I just need to be by myself, and sure I can sometimes be very direct with people, but that’s not being mean…is it?
