Sometimes I like to think about my life in perspective to the world. I live a pretty good life. Some days are better than others, but I have things pretty easy. I have a family who loves and supports me. I have great friends. Since I started college, now I have friends spread out all over: most in New York, many in Maryland and the DC area, some in Pennsylvania, one in mexico. I have so many best friends and other people to talk to and lean on. I have an amazing boyfriend who builds me up whenever I'm down and who is so patient with me. He gets me like no other.
I have a job. Although the hours usually drag on (especially during nine hour shifts), I'm meeting new people and learning some things. I'm also making money and saving to study abroad.
I go to a great school where the weather is gorgeous and although the academics are hard, I am doing well. It is a great opportunity.
I have no ailments... I eat and eat, I work out, I am healthy inside and out.
I'm one of the lucky ones. There are so many people out there who have problems on problems. The only problems I have are nightmares where my teeth fall out and curfew.
I'm comfortable, I'm happy.
Is that what the dream is?
Maybe if I were older, with a little more freedom, I would be out in the real world traveling and spreading my wings, but I have some time. I'm sure I have some growing to do. A little more learning for sure.
I'm pretty content right here right now.
