It’s hard to stay awake.
But I don’t want life to pass me by.
My parents’ hard work and struggle drives me to succeed.
It’s my turn to take the wheels and steer myself into a bright future.
I worry for the future but I’m optimistic about tomorrow.
I’ve been sheltered my entire life and now I’m on my own, clueless about where I’m headed in life.
I am who I am because of my family and my close, loving friends.
My thoughts are always racing.
Curious and imaginative.
Over thinking and over reacting.
Thoughtful and open minded.
I promised myself I wouldn’t make the same mistakes twice.
But habits die hard.
I’m lazy, blank, and wander off into space.
I’m also optimistic, grounded, and determined.
I feel fortunate and lucky.
Extremely caring, irreplaceable friends.
Countless unforgettable memories and laughs.
Countless random, ‘you had to be there’ moments.
Prioritizing my goals.
Involving myself in things I’m passionate about.
College is the beginning outlet for me to find what I want to do in life.
I’m a kid at heart, not ready to take on the challenges of growing up.
But there’s no running away from it.
I lounge around.
Trying to break from an unending cycle of laziness.
My decisions determine where I’ll be in life.
I can’t let life pass me by.
I can’t let myself down.
