So my first day at SDSU, to say the least, left me sleepless LOL
Idk why but I just couldn’t fathom that I was still at this school, it feels so unreal. My roommates (so far) are the sweetest and we all have similar habits. We like wake up and gym at the same time, but they’re quiet (which is nice).
The campus is gorgeous! I live in the farthest apartments and the walk to campus is a trek, but the amazing view makes the walk almost tolerable.
I’m still trying to figure out about the whole sorority thing, and so far I talked about joining one of the sororities with my roommate, but no commitments yet!
Ugh college is cool and I guess I’m excited for when class actually start!
Right now I’m not thinking about the romantic boyfriend/girlfriend kind of relationship problems, but the friendship type. This has been bothering me so much lately and I just feel like senior year I have experienced so many lost friendships. I know it just may be because people drift apart whenever they lose interest in being friends with a person, but that’s not justifiable. I just think that real friends don’t drift apart. Some people that I’ve known throughout the years don’t even look at me when I smile at them or they look always agitated whenever I walk by. I mean, I haven’t done anything bad and I don’t smell, so it’s confusing to realize that the people you once got along with before suddenly turn on you and make you feel small. I get so scared.
I used to be really great friends with this one girl and everything was going fine until one day she told me that she didn’t want to be friends with me anymore. I don’t know how people do that so easily, because when that happened I practically begged to earn my friendship back with her and I didn’t understand after everything we have been through together, she just decided to cut ties with me. It hurts; it’s been about a year and she still hasn’t given me any sign to be friends with me again and that hurts me the most.
I know that for me personally, I don’t dislike anyone yet I hate the eerie feeling of a friend that also treats you like an enemy. I guess I just like it when I don’t always have to be the one to come up and be friendly with friend I haven’t seen a while. Sometimes I’d like to know if that friend cares about me as well. But oh well friends aren’t everything, but all I’m saying is that high school friends are so confusing.
Valentine’s Day Love is NOT Just For Couples by Catherine Osborne creates a new perspective of Valentine’s Day; it can be celebrated even if you are bitter about happy couples and/or if you’re single. Osborne says it’s true that Valentine’s Day is a day where a lot of flowers and chocolates are bought for loved ones, but Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just for couples because there are more people to love than just your significant other.
“What about a perspective change? What if we were to adopt the idea that Valentines Day is not just for couples, but for everybody? While your friends might be buying flowers for their partners, consider the people in your world that you love, and that love you back.”
This article reminds me of my mother, because she never really celebrated Valentine’s Day after she got divorced from my dad. I remembered coming home from school on Valentine’s Day and I saw balloons and a card from my mom. Even when she was still with my dad, she made Valentine’s Day a family event because she thought it would be selfish not to. For her, family is number one and she doesn’t let any man get in the way of it because she loves us so much.
Hopefully this article helps out anyone who might not be going on a date for Valentine’s Day, because there are many other ways to find happiness and love this day by just hanging out with friends and family.<3
