Welcome to the Land of the Beautiful

I live in a world where the sun never sets, the make up never smears, and the heels never break. I live in a world that's flawless...from the outside. Everyone is evenly tanned year round and never a root to show on the freshly blonded hair. To outsiders, we have it made. How could we not? We're in COLLEGE.

But who are we really

We're just a bunch of kids...

trying to FIGURE. IT. OUT.

And the funny thing?

There is NOTHING to Figure OUT

There's all this struggle. All this chaos around college, around life.
We're all trying to BE SOMETHING.
But really, we already are Something. Some of us just don't know it yet. And when you finally Know is beyond your control.

No one around here knows what they're doing, and if they say they do, they're probably lying either to themselves or others...or both. We're all trying to tap into that something. That little feeling that you get when you KNOW this is what you should be doing. We're all trying to be something greater than we are now. We're all learning and failing. We're all just getting by.

And for what?

For Nothing.
We're in this for the sake of being in it. The fighting life won't matter in the end because at the end of the road you have no idea how you got there, you just know you did.
So why fight?
The struggle that comes along with College, or Life, is something you create. Life will happen the way it's going to happen, no matter what your brain has to say about it.
So just sit back and LIVE.
And Live Like You Mean It.

I walk around this campus of perfection everyday of my life, and I never fail to see kids getting over looked. We pass by each other like we're strangers, but whether you like it or not, we're all EXACTLY THE SAME. No one is better than you, and you are better than no one. 

We're all HUMAN!

Humans in College, humans on Earth. 

How easily we forget. 

I see people who have DRIVE. I see kids doing REMARKABLE things. There is an undeniable FIRE in each of us.
We're all full of Energy and Life, and we're not afraid to show it. And if you are afraid, try something new.

Try being FEARLESS.
Try being FREE.

Try Being. 
And that's that.

Just Be,
Who You Are.

and Honestly.

We're all in this together. Not just College, but LIFE. 
This is YOUR LIFE..

What are you doing with it?
