Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m gonna make this place your home
This quote could not be more relevant right now. My life is in a period of transition and I’m still trying to figure out how to juggle everything while planning for the future.
I got super frustrated with life last week. I felt super overwhelmed & burnt out and I broke down. I thought about leaving Michigan State and felt like I didn’t really have a connection to MSU other than AOII.
When I first showed up to move into my dorm freshman year, I didn’t know anyone. I felt like I could drift around campus without any recognition from anyone because I didn’t know anyone. This feeling stayed until last week.
The next night we had a social event. I dragged my feet, I just wasn’t feeling it. It turned out to be the exact thing I needed.
I showed up to that social & was reminded of the connections and more important, friends I’ve made in the last two and a half years. It’s so easy for me to let friendships fall to the wayside when I get caught up in life. That night reminded me how important it is to have a network, full of connections of all kinds and how easy it can be to loose faith in yourself.
I haven’t realized it along the way, but I’ve made Michigan State my home. I’ve had my share of getting lost & tearing myself down, but there’s always a network of support and love around me. I couldn’t dream of going anywhere else anytime soon.
