The End is just The Beginning

So in a few weeks I will be ending my freshman year of college.  This makes me excited and sad all at the same time.  I'm now beginning a chapter of my life and ended another.  College is just starting as is my life.  I will now be making decisions that will affect me for the rest of my life.  Not only about my career, but also relationships.  

I'm very satisfied with my first year of college.  I made some mistakes, made some great decisions and played it safe a few times.  It was a good year.  I wouldn't redo it in a million years. I made some good friends that will I will never forget.  As well as met some people that have impacted my life in more ways than they'll ever know.  Some people will stay in my lives forever.  
I don't know where the rest of my life is going to go, but I do know this.  Wherever I go some people will go with me.  Whether in my heart or by my side.  There are some in particular that I hope to have by my side for the rest of my life.  It will be the tragic the day that I have to say good bye to them.  I already did to one, but I know that she is with me wherever I go.  And I also know she is only a phone call away.  

There are some people I met that just don't understand how much they mean to me.  I think they'll figure it out eventually.  Till then I'll sit back and watch them live their lives.  And I will always be there for them when they need me.  And I know that they will do the same for me.       

Summer will be different this year.  Going back home is going to be, well, weird.  I hate to leave this beautiful city that I'm in now, but it has to be done.  Plus I'll be back next fall.

April showers bring May flowers

Signs of spring are arriving. Tulips, located in Gaslight Village, are blooming, bringing life, and vibrant color.

Seussical the Musical


How many times a day do we listen to music...?
For me this is all the time.  I wake up to music, fall asleep to music, I constantly have music playing in my room.  I even walk to class with my iPod.  Music is my love.  Without I would be lost.
Music does influence lives.  I think it might be the thing that influences me the most.  When I first really started getting into I wouldn't normally pay attenention to the lyrics and I saw how much I was missing out on the stories that are being told.  Some songs just don't make sense which makes them even better.  Some songs are for love, some are for hate.  Other are for just pure fun.  No matter my mood...I know that listening to my favorite artists will instantly put me in a better mood.  
I recently went to a Lupe Fiasco concert.  AMAZING! It was my first concert and it blew me away with awesomeness and excitement. I would love to go to another concert.  
I have come to appreciate the wholesomeness of music.  How so much work goes into one song. I had music theory last semester and it killed me.  I've never looked at music in the same way. Music is so complicated.  I love walking through big cities and hearing all the musicians playing their instruments on the streets.  
Music is so influencial...one thing that makes me laugh is the fact that after a person goes through a breakup they listen to music about breakups or love.  That is not the songs that you should be listening to.  You should be listening to songs about how great it is to be single or just great dancing music.  Dancing to songs always lifts up my mood.

The Beginning

So this is my very first blog. I'm 19 years old and enjoying life to the fullest that I can. I love to travel and have fun. I'm enrolled in a class at Cornerstone University called Photojournalism. You'll see pictures from that class that I will be adding. I hope to keep this blog going and continue to put up pictures as my life continues on.

So for right now that's really all I have. Just live up your life and enjoy it to the fullest.
