This never gets old. I swear I revisit this video every few months and it’s still as good as the first time I saw it…always to the point, and always, always relevant. This particular line is resonating with the happenings of my life right now…

“Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on, work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle.”

This summer has brought a whole lot of new people in my life and in very little time, I’ve grown to love each and every one of  ’em. But as with every relationship, friendships need time and nurturing and the distance that separates us makes this no easy feat. It always takes such a great deal of effort to maintain these relationships, but I don’t care…I love it. I’ll always make the time for it…cuz that human connection makes it all worthwhile…





direction

If I get this internship, I will honestly die of happiness. I haven’t wanted anything so bad like this in soooooo long! The job is absolutely perfect for me and it would just really set me towards the direction I’ve always been dreaming about. Oh please, oh please! I want this so bad! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

AHHHHHH! I’m melting in anxiety and excitement!





yearning

23 08 2009

Snapshots of Europe keep randomly appearing in my mind and when it happens, I’m shaken. The feeling is gripping and a whole wave of emotions comes over me. I’m sad but grateful…and there’s this huge yearning inside of me. This longing to go back and to relive each moment again. I never thought that this trip would have such an effect on me. Yes, I knew it’d be an “experience of a lifetime”…that it’d be like nothing I’ve ever experienced before…but prior to takeoff, those were all just abstract words people kept repeating to me. And yes, I knew I’d be different…that everything would be different. But this? This is something else. The feeling is profound. It’s like I’m in this sort of limbo right now. I’ve experienced greatness and I know that there’s still more to come and yet, right now…there’s this kind of lull. And this feeling of restlessness grips me to the point of paralysis…
