Day 29: Hopes, Dreams and Plans for the Next 365 Days
Holy crap, there’s a lot to be done within the next year or so. As of now, I am getting counseling and hoping things will work out in my life. I am going to take some general education courses over the summer so I can be a few steps closer to graduating. I am also really looking forward to living with great people next semester that I have met this past year. Plus, living in the new dorms :). What I really want is to get closer to my mother. My trust has been tainted with her and I want to improve that trust. She trusts me (so she says) but I don’t trust her with some things. I don’t tell her everything because I know she can be a very judgmental person. Really, this is all I want to happen within the next 365 days.
I’m close to surviving three months of 2010 but man has a lot happened. To me starting second semester at college to me turning 19 years old and just one year left in finishing the teenage years. But most importantly, I have learned that things are hard and that life is hard. And a lot of stuff is falling me like a ton of bricks. What I am doing now is seeking counseling here at school and trying to cope with my problems. I also really want to open up with my mother more. It has happened a little bit but I still feel that it needs work. I have also learned that people change and sometimes there is nothing you can do about it. I keep on learning everyday that life can be such a pain in the ass but it is possible to work things out. I may not have all the answers for what is occuring now, but I know I will find out soon enough. I have questioned whether or not I have made the right decision in going to college far from home. I know I did, right now I am just adjusting to a life that sacrifices things. I have sacrificed time with my family, friends back home and other people. But at the same time, I have made more friends, I am learning more about life. I feel alive despite my down moods that have come more often lately. For now, I am seeking help to cope with this. It’s really hitting me hard and I just need to know how to deal with this. But in the end, I am enjoying life.
So this month was pretty interesting. A lot of stuff going on, I had spring break early in the month and was looking forward to getting away from school for while. Despite getting homework either way. When I was on my way back to school, my flight had to turn back and thus making my first flight ever canceled for me in my life. The earliest I could get back to school was that Tuesday and ended up missing two days worth of classes. I got back to campus on Tuesday afternoon and it was finally the lovely spring weather. The next day, was St Patrick’s Day and Free Burrito Day at Boloco plus 60+ degree weather and I was yelling like a maniac as I do on a daily basis for the most part. However, later that week I started feeling sick and went on a shoot that weekend semi-sick. We went to an abandoned, yet historically preserved, train station and shot their for a night. Saturday, 70+ degree weather and I was still a little sick and only went to the shoot for half of that day. Felt sick for the rest of a weekend and then got addicted to the song ‘Telephone’ by Lady Gaga and Beyonce. Things started looking up as my friends from home came to visit but went downhill again when I had a mini-meltdown and was desperate for counseling. I ended up getting an appointment for this upcoming Tuesday and I am looking forward to getting the help that I need to deal with my problem. Right now, I am still a little sick and looking forward to finishing my first year at college. I just want to keep going with this. Yes, it’s hard but I want all of this to work out. I want everything in my life to work out and I just want what I want in life.
So let’s see this week was all right. My friends from home came to visit me and I had school. Monday and Tuesday was really rainy but it was still fun because I went to Fanueil Hall with my friends on Tuesday before my four o clock class. But then it sorta went downhill on Wednesday because I have these moments when I feel like crap but I am doing a little better now. Wednesday was terrible because at night I had a thirty minute telephone conversation with my mother on life and sacrifice and it was terrible but insightful if that makes any sense. Thursday, I did not feel like getting up from bed but I did go to class anyway and later that night we watched ‘The 40 year old Virgin.’ Friday I did not wake up until noon and showed my friends a little more of Boston before they left and then we went to go see ‘The Vagina Monologues’ which was fun. Later that night, we watched ‘Food Revolution’, a super cheesy telenovela and ‘The Producers’. Saturday, I thought my friends were leaving but….they stayed for one more day and left today. Saturday night my Emerson friends and I went to the Masquerade ball and it was fun except I nearly lost my voice from all the crazy yelling I did. Today, my friends went back home to Chicago and then I went to church for Palm Sunday. I later took a catnap and then family friends invited me to lunch today and came to visit me. We walked around, talked about life and they gave me an Easter basket. Now, I’m in my room feeling like crap again mainly because a lot of shit is going on in my life and I am very much looking forward to going to counseling Tuesday to get stuff off my chest to someone. But this upcoming week should be loads better! ANIMEBOSTON, HERE I COME!!!
Today was an all right day. I woke up for a bit around 8:30 but went to sleep again because my bed was so cozy and my mom called me around 9 AM and told me it was time for me to wake up. So I woke up got dressed and my stuff ready and went back to sleep again until 9:30 AM. I woke up and went to class for 10 AM, History of Opera. We watched Otello and it was pretty awesome, opera is a cool class. I then went to lunch with my friends, a friend from college and my friends who came to visit me from home. We ate and then I went to the Writing and Resource Center to get help on my research paper. I then called my mom to say and someone was trying to call me, the counseling center. I told my mom I would call her back and called the counseling center to set up an appointment for Tuesday. I then called my mom and then told her I was off to class. I ended up going outside for a bit before class with some friends. At 4 PM I went off to Myth of the American Frontier and today was fairly interesting as we were talking about Chief Illinwek and Colleges that use Native Americans as mascots. After class I went off to a free screening of ‘Waking Sleeping Beauty’ and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I went to my friends dorm and they were baking brownies and cookies, they were tasty. Now I’m in my friend’s dorm and we’re watching ‘The Forty Year Old Virgin’.
