It’s been 2 years since I last wrote in my tumblr. I guess I stopped writing ever since I transferred from Mt. Sac to UCSB. Man.. that was such a fulfilling experience, I grew so much as an individual there, met so many people, and gained so much wisdom/knowledge. Now I am back at my hometown starting a fresh chapter of my life I suppose.
I’ve been reading my posts from years ago and although I still feel slightly same, my outlook on life has changed drastically, and continues to do so. I guess my goals are more realistic now instead of just ‘packing up my shit and leaving’. I now want a job, a good/stable job outside of the suburbs where life exists. I want to help out my mom with money so she doesn’t have to work as much and so she can retire comfortably. I also would like to have a balanced relationship with this great new wonderful girl I just met. I want to make plans and not just go with the flow anymore. I want to go to the bay area, road trip, maybe go to Jerusalem for 2 weeks and eat falafels n shit.
I guess I’m not scared anymore. I used to be afraid to leave the vicinity of my home but I thank God for giving me not the courage, but the ability to learn from my past/experiences to develop an inner strength I used to not have.
Cool, I’ll be back.
