Life has been very peaceful and content lately. I feel like all is right, and I'm where and who I'm supposed to be. Thankful is just a really good word to describe how I feel. Thankful to be able to study what I want and be encouraged. Thankful to have a great group of friends that I can count on and have fun with. Thankful I've come to a place of acceptance with my personality, body, and style. And really thankful just in general for my family.
They came up to Kent this weekend for the day to go do some fall activities. It ended up pouring rain miserably and we didn't get to do anything that we had planned...But it was still such a special day spent with them and one I cherish. When I'm bored in my classes I think about what it will be like to not see them in person for sixteen weeks when I go to Italy next year. How will I be able to handle that? I derive a lot of my strength and happiness from them and to not have them with me will be one of the greatest challenges I'll go through in my life thus far. Both dreading and looking forward for that time to come, as I know it's going to help me grow so much as a person.
I've been nervous thinking about internships though. As a fashion merchandising major it's required that I do an internship and ideally I would like mine to be for this coming summer. I have a specific dream place in mind, but I am just so insecure about applying and feel as though it will be impossible to get accepted. So much of my life will be changing in the next year; living somewhere different for an internship, living in a different country for half a year...I am nervous but so in awe of these opportunities I have in life. I know to enjoy these comforts like Kent, my family, and friends because soon all of these will be taken away for more uncomfortable, frightening experiences. As time goes on though I feel myself getting more and more mentally ready to be put out of my comfort zone this next year.
I'm ready for ya, future.
With much love, Lauren.
