i’m getting so antsy here in raleigh. i really need a change and i want to travel, especially outside the US. however, that won’t be able to happen until at least summer/fall of next year, which is starting to depress me slightly. to cope, i’ve been applying to graduate schools in the UK and looking up accommodations, aka daydreaming. i’ve also been accepted to grad school in costa rica for next fall, so there’s always that. not too shabby of a backup plan, right?
until then, maybe i should take a mini-road trip or something. the problem with that is i work 40-hours a week and i can’t really afford to take a day or two off. oh well…

Run into my arms. Embrace me. Hold me tight. Tell me that I’m your everything, your light and soul. Be a part of my life forever, a sweet lover of mine. Be the fury in my bed, the ghost in the back of my head. I want to feel your warmth. I want to finally feel what it’s like to have my breath taken away, to feel like I’m the most important person in someone’s life. I long for you, whoever you might be.

I completely understand feeling burnt out from school. I'm feeling it as well. I'm thinking about taking the summer off from school and waiting until August to start again. I need a mental refresh.
i hear that! the way i see it, there’s no point rushing into more school if i don’t even feel like trying right now. both my mentality and grades will suffer from it. definitely take a break if you need one!

I would definitely go to Costa Rica and attend grad school. I'm 36 years old and if I could do it all over again, I would continue with school and now be in my dream job instead of still going to school and working full time. Just my two cents. Good luck with your decision.
thanks for the advice. the question isn’t whether or not i am going to grad school, but rather when/where. i eventually want to pursue my doctorate as well, but i’m so burnt out right now from school. i just need to decide if i want to attend grad school in the fall in costa rica or work some before attending grad school next fall. i think i’ve made my decision though…
I saw you on "Fuck yes chubby fashion." I fucking love your hair. More so than any of the others i have saw on there. And for you to 1.have the courage to cut your hair 2. to post it. i am following you <3
thanks lady! i really appreciate that. cutting my hair was definitely one of hardest, but also one of the best decisions i have made. it’s very liberating, actually. :)
okay, so i typically stick to smaller, local shows when it comes to music. however, there are a few bands that i will break this “code” for (especially if the opening bands are awesome). i just bought lots of tickets and i feel like i’m reliving high school with these bands, but that’s okay.
