  • Sharing some thoughts, because sometimes it's nice to put them somewhere that's not my head I've been thinking about the future lately. A lot. Which I know is unfair because I still have another year of college, while others are facing more immediate decision-making situations. But here we are nonetheless. Last semester the future seemed so exciting; this semester it's daunting. Now when I imagine the future, I can't clearly see my place in it because I just don't know what it is that I want to do. I know that things will work out eventually but this state of unknowing really gets on my nerves. I guess that's where trust comes in. There's so much I'd *like* to do, but I also need to have backup plans [and backup plans for my backup plans]. However, it's not that I'm going nowhere, but into the unknown. That's uncomfortable. But it's definitely not a new feeling, or even necessarily a bad one. Almost everyone has faced uncertainty at some point in their lives. So it's okay. It's okay to say "I don't know, but I have options" the next time a well-intentioned [but often poorly-timed] adult asks what you're going to do next.

I think you’re really great Also, it’s comforting to know that the road to the unknown is crowded with good people 🖤 (is that like a cheesy “thinking of you” card quote?? Idk whatever, we’ll roll with it, miss you & praying for you friend!!)
