Hello again! I know my last actual post was almost a month ago, and I apologize for that! I thank those that have stuck with me this month 🙂
In the past month a lot has happened; I have turned 20, been accepted to study abroad in Australia in the spring, gone to my first Twins game of the summer, made new friends, met new people, had a few really tough nights, gotten ready for school, and the first football game of the University of Minnesota’s season resulted in a win.
I’ve come to some realizations about myself as well. I’ve realized that I really do invest in my relationships, both romantic and platonic, more than the other party. This sets me up to get hurt when it becomes evident that I am trying to communicate and reach out to those I care about and receive absolutely nothing in return. I am not the biggest fan of ambiguity and am continuing to learn to sit with my anxiety about certain situations and people. It continues to be tough, let me tell you.
I apologize for the shortness of this post but I am at work and am unable to write more at the moment. Classes start next week and I could not be more excited to get some structure in my schedule and also to be constantly busy! I will have more time to post, though, and with the classes I am taking I will have more to write about as well!
I hope that you are all doing well and enjoying whatever is left of your summer!
