And I cared.
And I cared.
I am going to rant a little bit here because I came back home and these ideas just came flooding into my head.
For me and my grade university is around the corner and I cannot help but notice everyone is scared for this change. I have to admit that I am very scared especially putting myself in a position where I might be moving far away to a place that I don’t have any friends in and no family to help me out. California is a four hour plane ride away from Toronto.
It scares me …. but it’s a dream I had ever since I was little. I want to prove to my parents that I can do this and I can overcome all the negative things they throw at me.
On the flip side whenever I go visit Toronto I get a feel on how damn amazing it is and the people here are nothing like the ones I encounter in the suburbs. They are classy, fun and amazing people.
Its a tough choice but when I ask my friends what they are doing …. I see that fear of the unknown in their faces and they choose to stay around home when deep inside they want to be out there in the world far away. I have no problems with them staying home but sometimes you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone because if you live life so plain and not risky what kind of life is that?
I mean sometimes experiencing that change is something that will change you in a positive way. University is about learning about yourself and shaping the kind of adult you will be.
Sitting around home while your parents baby you like they did for 18 years of your life is something I doubt many want. It’s a hard reality but your parents won’t be around when you get older and if they handed you everything and they are now gone how are you going to live?
It’s something to always think about, follow your dreams and if you fall on your butt a couple times getting there that is good too because those lessons are always important to learn as well.
Take Chances, Make Mistakes, Get Messy.
I hope wherever I end up this year I am 100% confident in my choice. This is something I have to do and I encourage everyone that fear is only a temporary thing and you should always give it all.
None of us know where we are going when we die so might as well live life to the fullest.
