Lately, my life has had some events that just don’t even feel real. They happen so quick and pass by like a wave in the water. I was in California for a week, and it went by so fast. I’ve been wanting to go there all my life and I finally got the chance and with a blink of the eye I was back home and back to reality.
All of a sudden, I had make my college decision and deposit officially. All of a sudden, I’m the one picking up my little sister and running errands and being tired because of a long shift. All of a sudden I realize the next year I’m gone. I’ll never truly live at home again.
Yesterday, my high school was almost the new national school shooting, like Columbine or VT or the Boston Marathon event. I can’t give too many details because I don’t want to give out where I live, but within a few hours, a boy at my school planned to shoot everyone in the cafeteria, bringing weapons such as knives, guns, a lighter, and gasoline. Within a few seconds it was stopped, but if it wasn’t for a teacher stopping him that moment, I would be one of the ones dead.
These moments in life are surreal and we look back at them sometimes wondering what if, or how we got there. Sometimes we wonder what we’d do different, or what we wish we could relive. But in our lives there are going to be moments that are bliss, or terror. They feel surreal and untouchable. They leave you with a feeling that’s indescribable. So I’m not really trying to make a point of much other than accept that some moments just happen how they happen, whether they’re for a reason or not, and just enjoy every second you have.
No longer giving a fuck.
Because clearly, giving a fuck, just complicates things.
I’ll be flying to California to compete in a business competition! I’ve made it to international’s which is a big accomplishment in my mind. I’m very entrepreneurial and with my college decision decided, the only thing left is excitement for my future! I can’t wait to be successful, and have my own businesses. I’m almost 18, but I have so many amazing ideas of things I want to accomplish, and it’s such a relief to finally feel like I know where my life is headed.
Holy shit I can’t wait for college.
My handsome man and I.
