Why do you put me on a pedestal?

August 2, 2009

There's only two weeks left. Two weeks of one of the most challenging and rewarding summers of my life. Friday night I went out with my roommates and spent the entire night with Lacy questioning the unexplainable 'north-east.' Granted our opinions are a little skewed being from South Carolina and the southwest, but this place is crazy. First the weather...I've never experienced anything like it before. One minute it's hot as hell and the next minutes it's a torrential downpour with freezing winds and humidity on top of it all. After 6 weeks of this, I've realized 100% that the west coast is the best coast. Regardless of the weather, where are all the nice people? Lacy and I are both uber-bubbly outgoing girls and this town doesn't find that type of behavior acceptable. Everyone here walks around in a mean-bubble with no notice of anyone else. It's weird. I really love the city, it's gorgeous and fun and fast paced and that type of energy isn't found in anywhere else but a big city, but I think I've decided that law school for me is best suited on the west. So, don't mind my venting and aggression because I do have love for Boston, but please take me back to the best coast.

Whoever said you can only learn in a classroom was so wrong. I've learned more about myself and life and all things I'm capable of in the past 3 months than I ever have. I learned that I am strong enough, I am smart enough, I am good enough. I've realized that I've changed a lot from who I used to be. From the start of it all until now, I'm different. Not different in a 'I changed my core beliefs' different, but I've grown up. And sometimes it means being a little bit selfish, and doing what's best for me. I love this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, "Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyways."

I know everyone thinks Hannah Montana is SO lame, I get it, but I love this song. You have to ignore the pictures that go as this song, but its the only one i could find on youtube that wasn't embedded.

Maybe who I was before - Maybe I don't even know her anymore.
Maybe who I am today ain't so far from yesterday. Can I find a way to be every part of me?
