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.
