In the meantime, I’ve learned how to become brave, how to let positivity rule my life instead of negativity. I’ve learned to put my hopes into my chest and let it run their courses.
I learn every day, taking your lessons and yours and yours and instilling them into me. I’ve learned how to embrace the lessons that we are supposed to learn as humans. It’s easier to become run down, lose faith that you can make things okay. We are all strong, beautiful human beings. We just need to remember it.

i could save me by having my mouth around you.
Spoken word is the most beautiful thing in the world.
It’s nights like these that I am joyous, energized and, most of all, confident after a great conversation with someone. Emily can answer everything I need her to without having to explain anything. We get it, we’re on the same wavelength, it’s on our minds simultaneously.
It’s been a rough summer of adjustments to the way I understand people and myself. And now, I leave the rubble of a once true worldview and carry on.
I am strong and I can take my time. I’m only nineteen, remember?
I am gearing up for a December filled with spontaneous crying marathons, stress eating beyond normal amounts, and a strong desire to quit college at least once a day.
Thus, some positive post-it notes have been constructed while waiting to grab dinner with a friend. I’m going to hide them around the apartment for my roommate. I don’t think anything is more necessary.
What mini pep talk would you give yourself?
Because I love Rachel and Sarah Little, and because I helped add to this pile and because everyone deserves a nice pep talk all the time and because I now know of two new places to get great food and because I’m loving Chicago and life and why I’m here.
Because this is all great.
