College update

I’m so happy here. I really am. Stony is definitely the right place for me at this point in my life and I’m not afraid to admit it anymore. I’m doing well in my classes and round one of midterms was manageable so I’m hoping to at least maintain my grades until the end of the semester.

My suitemates are also fantastic which really helps. It’s nice to have people on campus who care about you; you never feel alone.

  • One place that makes me happy and why: Being on the LIRR is one of my favorite things in world. I love everything about long train rides, actually. I love having the opportunity to catch up on reading, listen to music, think about life. And I have so many good memories with my friends and crushes and exes just sitting there on our way to concerts/city/beach adventures. Whenever I’d have a rough week or a random emotional breakdown I’d make plans to get away for a little while and I remember always enjoying the train ride because there was that “anything could happen” excitement. I know everyone always says something about life “being the journey, not the destination” and I agree, but sometimes it’s just nice to know that you are going somewhere, you know? It sounds a little silly, and maybe it is, but that alone gives me a lot of hope when things are difficult

  • A piece of advice for all my followers: I don’t remember where I read it/who I heard it from, but this is by far the best advice I’ve ever received: “Don’t romanticize the people who hurt you.” Yes, everyone has their reasons and you should’t judge anyone’s decisions, but when someone wrongs you time and time again, you can’t keep justifying their actions by thinking about all the good things. You just can’t. Understand that, yes, what they did was unfair, and yes, you deserved better than that. I can’t tell you how many times I ended up emotionally distraught from bad friendships/ other relationships because I would look at things in an idealized and unrealistic way. I’d be so afraid of losing someone that I would let them take advantage of my understanding nature. It’s not worth it…It really isn’t. Don’t get me wrong—-I’m not saying you should avoid forgiving/trusting anyone ever. I just want you to know that it’s okay to cut people from your life that have hurt you. It’s not a selfish decision; it’s just you looking out for yourself. Just have faith that it will all turn out okay. If this person is supposed to be in your life, they will be. If not, you’ll know moving on was the right decision for sure. That was a really long rant I apologize hahaha
