a year

There is this quote that I love. I love it a lot actually, because it accurately describes how I feel about life. There are a lot of words that resonate with me, but this set of words comes back more often than others.

“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”

– Agatha Christie

I read that on tumblr a few years ago. And if there was ever a few sentences that described the past few months, it would be those.

I’ve never been one to have ton of flowery words to describe things. And I think that’s okay. All I really want to say about Junior year was that it was full. I was full of friendships, stress, coffee, laughter, tears, failures, triumphs, learning, joy, and most of all it was full of living.

I think we like to romanticize life sometimes. It makes things sound better when we put it in to words that way, but sometimes I think it’s okay to just let the simplicity and rawness of life come out. Which is why I don’t want to say a lot about my Junior year. I just want to show it through snapshots.

    mm, yes. you are so right; we do tend to romanticise life, especially on social media, ensuring that people see what we want them to see through rose-colored lenses. it’s funny you should mention it, because i am working on being honest and raw and real with my blog posts too. it’s important – and freeing – to display the beauties and struggles and everyday, mundane moments that life holds. :) also, as usual, your pictures are glorious, and as i’ve always thought (but maybe never said), so very REAL. i love this. xo
