Goodbye, Hello is a series of letters written by me as I reflect on the past month and ponder about the upcoming month. Read the letter of last month here.
I was busy sending applications for college and a few part-time jobs so I've been moving around a lot. I looked intensively for an apartment and was on the road for weeks. Oh and of course: "To Ethan" has been completed!
You taught me that people are going to break my heart and then build it up again. I give bits of my heart away and I get bits back.
And you know what's scary? The days won't wait for me, they'll run out eventually. They're mine, so I'll take them.
I stood up for myself this month. If not visibly, I did it mentally. I realised that I am not an option and shouldn't let myself be treated like one. It's something I keep forgetting. Or worse, ignoring. So I made the decision that the moment I feel like I have to prove my worth to someone is the moment to walk away from them.
What else did I learn? Oh. I might get hurt but I'm going to put myself out there because maybe, just maybe, one day it'll be worth it.
This past week I watched Paper Towns and I loved every bit of it. The cast was so lovely to watch. (Read what Paper Towns has taught me here.)
A book I enjoyed a lot was Marina Keegan's The Opposite Of Loneliness. I bought it and read it in one go. She was such a talented, warm young woman. Rest in peace, angel.
By the way, "To Ethan" ranked #24 in Short Story and that's the highest rank so far! I feel extremely proud. Thank you guys a lot.
please don't be over too soon.
What did you guys learn this month? I'm curious to read about it.
