Officially graduated today. Very surreal. On to the next chapter, as they say. I thought I’d be more nervous, but I think I trust myself enough to take opportunity as it comes and to always put my best foot forward. Good things come to those who remain honest with themselves and others, and work hard at whatever it is they do.
Will only be blogging one-track posts for a bit, as I will be incredibly busy until June 13th. You all are on my mind though, and I won’t forget to post once in a while! This shot was taken in San Diego by my good friend Michael, edited by me. Makes me feel like I’m in a dream. Enjoy the music!
Remember when I said I’d never let another Smunday Chillin’ happen? I lied. Happy Smunday! I’ll be moving all this week and graduating, so I don’t know how many posts I’ll get out. Once I’ve moved, I’ll be posting more consistently hopefully; the last month of college has been begging me away from the blog.
There’s a lot of pain in life. More so than I could even begin to comprehend. I try to hide myself from it, or I’ve always been hidden; either way, when I am approached by that teeming monster, I learn a great deal about who I am. I don’t think it’s the event that pains us really, but the idea of our own misfortune, or of others’ misfortune, that consumes us. The mere existence of pain is what brings us to our knees. But what is more forthcoming of joy than pain? For without it we would drown in happiness, unaware of the beauty surrounding us. Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves.
