Summer has ended and what a summer it has been. Hello blog! As the season begins to change, I am getting ready to head back to university as a third year student. Though the excitement is big, I am sad to say goodbye to the warmest of the seasons. It was a good summer. I’m going to miss being home the most. Of course my home isn't going anywhere, my parents have made it clear that I am welcome at anytime but not being here every day to wake up to those I love the most will be hard. You would think I would be used to this feeling since it already happened twice before, but I guess I haven't. Maybe I never will. But change is good.
This year I will be rooming with a different roommate and that is exciting. I have had both good and bad experiences with roommates, but nothing terrible. Sometimes you just don’t get along. Sometimes it’s great. This year I was also fortunate enough to continue working at the center on campus that I have worked at for the past two year. The staff has become like a second family and I am excited. I want to have a new perspective in the way that I live my life too. I have always been positive but I have lost my sense of motivation. Growing up, I was the most motivated and ambitious person that I knew and I liked that but ever since I started university I feel that has changed. I want to change what changed. I know that I cannot get back to exactly the way that I was because I grew up and I did change and that was inevitable but I do want to get back to being motivated, just in a different way. To say the least, I am excited and happy. I have made many mistakes in the past both academically and generally in life but I am ready. I am ready for the new mistakes to come. I love mistakes, though I hate them in the moment. They help you grow and growing is important.
A weekend ago, I went to a One Direction concert. It was amazing. There really are no words or at least I can’t find any to describe exactly how amazing it was. My friend and I bought our tickets about 6 months before the actual date of the concert, so I think it is safe to say we were pretty anxious. We left fairly early the day of to make sure we got close parking. Ha ha because that did not happen. The amount of walking that was required just to get into the stadium was ridiculous. I love 1D but I love 1D fans the most. The Rose Bowl was full of diversity and I loved every bit of it. I have created countless friendships through this band and I was able to meet some of those friends that day. It was great! Jamie Scott and 5 Seconds of Summer were the opening acts for the boys. Jamie Scott is unbelievably good and 5SOS were rockin’ but One Direction stole the show. I am trying my hardest to write how I was feeling but I can’t. The only thing I can and will say is that it was beautiful and it was something that I will never forget. The feeling of being in a stadium with 90,000 other people who are singing and dancing and crying along to a band that you love is indescribable. My favourite part was being there and looking around, feeling exactly what everyone else in that stadium was.
