Analogies

If life were a museum,

you’re a piece of art.

If life were a movie,

you’re my favorite part.

If life made you the devil,

I’d gladly go to hell

Because life spent with you

Is life spent well.

Assessing my 2017

Many people describe their 2017 as a mix of good and bad—I’m one of those people. My first half of the year was pretty nice; despite having a professor who gave unnecessarily difficult requirements in one subject, I was able to acquire a grade of 1.00 (the highest grade) in another.

Eating alone has never been an issue for me, so I’m not really worried about that. I’m still trying to not judge myself by to going to the cinema alone, but I feel like I’ll get the hang of it soon. Grocery shopping, however, is something I haven’t really thought of.

Being the Independent Person™ that I am, I gave it a go and, boy, did it not go well.
