Mind of Mine

Let's hope Zayn doesn't pull a Taylor Swift and sue me for taking the title of his album.

Sometimes I often think about how I got to this point in my life. I don't mean that in a "I'm in a such a low point in my life", because I truly don't feel that way. I just genuinely ponder how I got here. I blinked and now I'm in my second year of college stuck in between "I'm getting there" and "I've made it". For all my fellow musical theatre fans, I feel like Jamie and my life's moving too fast but I also feel like Cathy where I know I can do better than this.

As a dramatic perfectionist, I constantly feel that my life is over with the smallest setbacks to my academic career or my life overall. One of the greatest things about life is that it's truly personalized and no one's life is meant for someone else! Nothing is actually a "setback" as this is the pace I was meant to go at. It's so easy to look at others and what they've accomplished in their lives and think "well it's working for them so I'm going to do the same thing and expect the same results!" when that couldn't be further from the truth. Take your time and do what makes sense to you. Trust your instincts because they're generally right.

I feel that becoming a communication major was 100% the right decision for me to make. For those of you who don't know I went into college as a marketing major. I literally laugh at thinking about that now. That didn't work out for me and so instead of thinking of how that was the end of the world, I pursued something else. And if public relations hadn't worked out for me I would have pursued something else. The whole point is to find what truly speaks to you. This doesn't only apply to majors in college. If college doesn't work out for you, find something else that does.

I used to always jokingly say "I have no idea what I'm doing" but I've stopped saying that. You become what you think about and so now I remind myself that I've got this. Always work hard and better yourself as the dream comes free but the hustle is sold separately.

Ciao for now,
