I'm not going to lie, after my first couple college classes I was overwhelmed, stressed, and totally deflated. School is hard, work is hard, I mean honestly, life is hard! I was always the type of person to keep pushing and pushing myself until I literally ran myself to the ground, and it made me so miserable. I never let myself have any fun because I felt as though I didn't deserve it, or that I wasn't allowed to. And I've realized that is total bullshit. I don't care who you are, or what you are going through, everyone needs to sprinkle some fun into their lives.
It's different for everyone. I'm not saying you all need to go out and party to have fun, because that's not true. For me, that makes me happy, it makes me forget about the stresses of my life and just enjoy the little things for a while. I love being able to have fun and spend time with genuine people who love having a good time as much as I do. After a long day, it's so nice to be able to let go and surround myself with people who make me laugh till my stomach hurts and who remind me about the good in life. Maybe it's going out, reading, working out, writing, whatever it is find it, and incorporate it into your life. You have one fucking life. Do you want to look back and realize you were stressed, anxious, or unhappy? There will be a day when you wish you could've done and experienced more. I don't want that to be me. I want to feel like I got the most out of my life that I possibly could. I want to know that I had a hell of a good time and I don't regret a second of it.
The hardest part is cutting yourself some slack. Who gives a shit if it's a Tuesday night and you have class in the morning? You are only young once. Stay out late, eat whatever the hell you want, embrace your fucking life. We all work so hard day to day, trying to prove ourselves to the world and trying to be the best that we can be. But that all gets pretty damn exhausting. I don't exist to impress the world, I don't live my life to please other people, I go about my life in a way that is going to make me happy, and that's all that matters. So judge me, ridicule me, I really don't care. I'm having fun, and I am loving every second of it. Get out there and kick back and just have a good time, however that may look for you, because one day you will be wishing for it all back.
Yes, I'm at college, and I need to work hard and study. But work hard, play hard, am I right? I'm not saying to disregard all responsibility, all I'm saying is that sometimes girls just wanna have fun, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Find the fun in life, and live a life you enjoy before it's over.
How do you have fun? Below are pictures from the party with some fantastic ladies I've met at school! One of the best nights I've ever had!
