Hello, hello, hello.
How are you doing today? I hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far and if you are not, I hope things get better for you. They will.
I came home today from school to find a letter on the mail waiting for me. I got rejected from my first choice college. You see, I got an email last week letting me know I did not get in and I felt rather fine, but I broke into tears when I read the physical letter. I was holding the physical proof that things were not going to be how I wanted them to; it felt real this time. Not gonna lie, I did cry. A lot. I even threw a small pity party for myself because it really isn’t a nice feeling to want something so much, and then being let known that you can’t have it.
I decided to reschedule the lifestyle blog post that I had planned to publish today for another day and write this from scratch instead. As I’m writing this with a little bit of a migraine and puffy eyes from bawling my eyes out, I did realise something. I did not get into this school but that doesn’t mean I should ever give up. If anything, this should give me an even more valid reason to never stop working hard and chasing my dreams. I will just have to work a little bit harder to get there.
I will be going to my second choice university and majoring in Marketing and International Management. Not graphic design, as I had originally planned. It is kind of a drastic change, huh? Going from art school to business school. I have four years ahead of me and anything can happen in such a long amount of time.
I’m not sure where this is going, exactly. I don’t want my blog to just be defined by makeup or fashion, but I also really want to humanise it and share some of my experiences with you. Sadly, this is not a very exciting or happy one. But one day. One day something good – really, really good will happen – and I will find myself typing a blog post thanking you for the support.
Please, don’t give up on your dreams. No matter how impossible they seem to be. Don’t give up on yourself. Just work hard for what you want and don’t forget to stay humble.
Have a nice day and I will talk to you soon.
