Hey guys! I thought I would talk about something that has been on my mind for a while. For anyone of you guys who are new or been with us from the start, I’m currently a college student. Now that’s not what’s bothering me. It’s the fact I’ll be finished in two months and it’s getting serious. Besides grades, there’s the million dollar question that everyone constantly asks when you tell them you’re about to finish college.
“What’s next?” And to be honest, I don’t know. True I have a major but what lies for me in the future seems unknown right now. Don’t know if I’m going to travel or maybe live in a new state. It’s unknown.
I keep thinking about it and although I won’t miss the homework, exams, essays, and annoying professors, I will miss the fun times I had. Like how I met Senaro in my first year in Japanese class. Or when I mustered up the courage to ignore what everyone said about me writing a book, and how I used to be a person angry at the world and at myself.
It’s true what they say about college. It changes you.
I’m grateful for that. If I hadn’t experienced the emotional roller coaster throughout these four years, then I would be a person I can’t stand. But I’m someone who loves herself. I’m someone who always learns something new every day. I’m someone who’ll be positive when someone down. I’ll be a supporter to anyone who tells me they want to take a risk in doing something new. I’m someone who loves to read and write. Creating new stories brings me joy. It brings me peace even when I’m upset.
In one of my blog posts, I mentioned that my siblings didn’t believe in me when I told them about writing a book. Well, ever since I published my book they come to me about writing a book of their own. They ask me what to do, how to write a book and what they need to know when it comes to self-publishing. If it’s not about writing, it’s about other projects they have in mind and I cheer them on.
Just thinking about it brings a smile on my face. So to answer that million dollar question, my answer is I don’t know. But I do know one thing. I’ll keep writing books. I’ll keep expanding my skills and hold my head up high. The best thing is I get to let you guys know how things are when the time comes.
