Everything I said I’d accomplish by now has indeed been accomplished and life is good. Or is it…? Whenever I talk with friends, the subject of what we’re up to now that high school is over always comes up in conversation. In a way, I think we want to hear what everyone else is doing as a way to escape our own reality; we do it to compare our own busy, draining, demanding schedules. Because maybe you’re getting tired of your own life and hearing a friend talk about university makes you wish you were there too, or perhaps it makes you feel glad you’re not. It doesn’t take a genius to know that everyone has their own separate path in life; the real challenge is knowing which path is yours–which one to take. You might have to take several turns to get onto the right one, or maybe–just maybe–you knew it all along.
I know is this some heavy shit to process on a Friday night (techically Saturday morning), but this is really my only time to think. Right now my “path” involves working 5 or 6 days a week, usually straight from school (Mon-Fri), staying home on the weekend to cook/clean, and choosing between food or shoes (2 times out of 3 I will choose shoes over food). Despite this, I still find it funny that hardly anyone can (or wants to) believe that I’m juggling this crazy schedule while still finding the time to blog AND eat healthy. Because, well…this mad house lifestyle is just what I wanted, and sure, it’s not easy, but I wouldn’t change it for the world! I love being independent, it’s just who I am. I mean, this is just another challenge that I’ve already tackled. All I’ve gotta say to the universe is, “BRING IT ON!” I’ve done this, now give me a new challenge.

PS. Yes, of course, I had to quote Destiny’s Child in my title. This song is my mantra!
