Goodbye, and Hello
Hello:) First off I would like to apologize for not posting any blog posts in a while; as some of you may already know, I am in college right now studying and majoring in Journalism. Life has been so busy, but now since I finally managed some time for blogging, I am going to push myself even further and will try to post a blogpost every Sunday at around 7PM EST because I love and thank all of you who follow/read my posts.♡
Today I am talking about transitioning into a new environment: experiencing being on your own where no one knows you and settling down. I am excited to experience and share this marvelous journey of beginning this new chapter in my life and hope that the college-level knowledge I will possibly intake from school will have a positive effect as I begin to blog again. Ha:)
Leaving My Past Behind.
Considering a lot of people in mind, a massive amount of them would think leaving somewhere you are used to and being on your own to is going to be a scary/dreadful journey-especially for me since I am the youngest and only girl in my family. I know a lot of people thought my parents would even move out here just to be closer to me-do not know where that came from-or have thought of the possibility of me coming back home because of homesickness.
Before I left for college, I always thought opposite. I have always had the mindset of going to new places, being on my own, and living in a new area where no one knows me were going to be the best things ever. Well, I was right. It is amazing. Do not get me wrong, I miss my family loads and a few people here and there back home, but I love a time for a fresh start and every opportunity to build new memories and enjoy every moment that is brought up. There is nothing like painting on a blank canvas. Though there were some things, people, or situations that were in my past, the only thing I can do is to let them stay there, let them know that they made me stronger, and to continue living my life. Being away gives me this opportunity of starting a new beginning, building new friendships, and applying everything I have learned to strive for a more better and mature me.
In a sense, I do not think settling down completely would be a good thing to do otherwise life would get boring quite easily. Settle down in a sense by being comfortable in supporting that new chapter of your life with new experiences. At first, leaving my parents behind was definitely a hard thing to do, but then I realize that life goes on and sometimes you have to be on your own to do what you want to do. This is the longest I have ever been away from my family, but with this liberty gives me the time to clear my mind, let me mature a bit more, and grow into the woman I choose to be.
I know there are going to be people who still might not like me for the way I think or do things, but I keep in mind that there are also going to be people who will love me for being me. People come and go, and you enter in their lives and leave. The only way of getting used to where you are is to not because life is full of surprises; any moment could be your chance to change your life or someone else’s.
By the words of the always handsome Jack Dawson played by my favorite actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, “I figured life is a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it.”♡

Love, Christianne xx
