Goodbye Sleepless Streets, Hello Suburban Weeks

I’ve come to realize why people move away from home and never come back.
Oftentimes, people leave their hometown for work or school and find a whole new world; a busier world, after finding such going back to the chill lifestyle of yesteryear seems like…. it almost seems wrong, for me at least.
Here I sit with my hair in a top bun, facemask on, candles lit with a cup of tea and an acoustic album playing and yet it feels so wrong to be relaxing. I’d gone from waking up every day with having some sort of deadline coming up whether it was for my classes or my 2 internships that I was juggling; to waking up and either going to my part time retail job or just waking up with nothing but time and I absolutely hate it.

I mean I know the reasoning behind it; but why is it something people deal with?

How can people live such different lifestyles and yet still live within a two-hour driving distance from one another? How is it possible to be so close to one of the busiest cities and yet live in such a different world?How can so many people live in the same city and still live such different lives as well?

I often ask questions that don’t have answers or don’t actually need answers but this is TheEnvyCollective is it not?

A Goodbye To School and Friends for Now.

So, the semester is finally over and I’m home free again, and yet for some reason, I’m almost sad that it’s over.
Not because I have to go back home, but because it’s been extremely eventful and life changing.
I’ve come to befriend some incredible people that have helped me so much and it’s been a magical freshman year of college.
It’s coming to an end far too soon.
I’ve befriended people who I won’t be seeing for a while most likely and it’s definitely sad to see them go, but it’ll be incredible to see how far they go in life.
I’ve seen another year of growth and incredible-ness. A year of happiness. A year of excitement.
And yet, it can come to an end so quickly.
So here’s to the fall 2016 and spring 2017 year…
You were amazing!!!!

Also, I just need to make sure I congratulate my friends who are Graduating this year, They definitely made my freshman year incredible!
Thank you so much, Sarah, Becca, Mandy and Emily!!
I don’t think I would’ve had such a great year without you guys honestly and I’m so glad you guys lived down the hall this year!
You are all absolutely amazing and I know there are SO many amazing opportunities in store for you.

OH! There’s also the possibility that Jonathan will not be able to help me with my photographs due to his work schedule, which also means his schooling may be put on hold once more… which is definitely incredibly sad as well.
Definitely unfortunate.
Jonathan, Thank you so so much for everything you’ve helped me with.
You are an amazing friend and an even better photographer and soon the world will see that too.

FIT, I’ll see you in 3 months.
Summer, Be as busy and exciting as I plan on you being.
Girls, You’re about to kill it in the real world!
Jonathan, I couldn’t be more appreciative for everything you’ve done!
Jackie(next semester roommate), Be Ready!
