Hello everybody; yes, I am alive. Yes, I made it through my first year of my undergraduate education and if I had to put the feelings I have into one word, it would be: angst. However, angst in the sense that I’m constantly looking forward to what’s next in my life. This year has been a real ride for me. I lost people I cared about, and for a while (around the time I stopped posting) I was in a hole that I didn’t think was escapable.
However, in loss, I gained new friends and new opportunites. I became the head of engagement for a student run religous organization on campus and I took up a spot as DJ at Georgia State’s own radio station: Album 88.5 where I play music and let my voice be heard all throughout atlanta and Georgia State. I also became an interviewer for our sessions program where I’ve had many incredible chances to speak to artists from Atlanta and get the inside scoop of what the local music scene looks like; more posts about that to come.
Now if any of you are familair with my posts, you know that I do my best to tie in a message to all the jibberish I spit sometimes. So, what’s my message this time around you may ask? Well, it’s actually pretty cliche but I always say that something wouldn’t be labeled cliche if it wasn’t effective or usueful.
Time flies everybody. It really does. It really really really really does. I know that social media can allow us to compare ourselves to others, but don’t worry about how other people are using their time, worry about your own. Do something, anything, with your time and I promise everything will work out. If you had told me this in October I would’ve given some hopeless response about how nothing will ever workout but it does.
I titled this blog The Freshmen Experience of A Lifetime. However, I’m no longer a freshmen so I guess a new name is in the works (I’m taking suggestions). The theme of this space will be the same though: I’m going to practically vomit my thoughts into a cohesive piece of writing and there will be a lesson, obvious or not, somwwhere within each post.
Finnaly, I really apprecaite everybody who has followed this page and continues to support me because it’s one of the main reasons I’m still motivated to want to continue this effort. Just know that for the month of May I will have a lot more time on my hands so I’m hoping to get into a routine with these types of posts. My social media is linked in the “About” section of the blog so be sure to follow me there to stay in touch, cheers everybody!
