People will never understand why I can’t let you go. Although you are my past without you my present or future would not exist. See people insist that I let go but holding on makes me who I am…Don’t want to be left with what ifs so I keep you close to fall back on. From my birth to today I hold every second, minute, hour, day, week, month, and year if I let go losing out is my fear. I have become a hoarder of memories. These memories have become my protection from what the future brings. When things get scary or too hard I return to them to remind me that happiness and stability is not impossible. Some times are harder than others but what I have already experienced no one can take away so with that I just hope and pray for a brighter day…Get it? My past is my future…happiness in a different form.
awww man if only my Internet worked in this place lol
never had a more boring day at "the shop"(what we call it)
So I got a little bored in the hair salon one day so I took some pics on my web cam. Is it just me or when you go to the hair salon you expect to hear some kind of gossip?? Well my hair salon is like gossip and drama city. Some people like peace and quiet in theirs but why go there for what I have at home...gotta love that place lol. Maybe I'll start a little series soon of my stories from "the shop". They maybe altered a little to keep people from being put out there though...COMING SOON...THE SHOP!!
So yesterday at 10 am I went through the physical ceremony of graduation from the University of Hartford's College of Arts and Sciences/School of Communication. Unlike most of my fellow graduates though I sat at graduation knowing that my journey was not over and the ceremony was just a symbol of what is to come for. You see I still have 2 classes to complete before I actually get my degree. I sat at graduation with a slight sense of dissapointment but also a sense of pride because although I'm not finished along with many I want to further my education and I am proud that I've made it this far. Where I come from there are not a lot of people who go to college. I will be the first of my family since my grandmother to recieve a degree and I have been doing this on my own. I haven't been the ideal student and although I have had some financial help...I've done most of it on my own. There are many who didn't make it through all four years and there are many who have. Some for financial reasons, some for other reasons but me...I did not and will not give up. Along the way I've learned a lot about myself and the world and the learning won't end here.
I encourage all people to educate themselve's and do not let any obstacle be too difficult that they let it overcome them instead of them overcoming it. The world is full of oppurtunities and it is up to you to take advantage of them.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2009!! The class with class and creativity!!
Now I know that it's a recession and people are stressed so more people are smoking but can they not find something else to do like biting nails. I mean my mom hasn't been a smoker for over 10 years now all of a sudden she's smoking again. I didn't even remember what it was like to live in a house with a smoker but it smells and I hate it.
Today I was on my way to work and a man came and sat next to me at the bus stop and started smoking his nasty cigarette and a chick did the same thing yesterday when I was on my way to take a final exam. I mean don't people know that the air is bad enough? Don't they know second hand smoke is just as bad as first hand smoke if not worse? No t to mention that people should have the common courtesy to not smoke under a bus shelter where smoke will linger instead of in the open air. Or how about that their ashes tend to fly on people so maybe they should stay to themselves when smoking those "cancer sticks".
Well that's all. I just think that people should be more considerate of others or I'll just start being RUDE.
My name is Ciara I am a Journalism Student. I am also the self proclaimed Sweethart of CT(yes hart) it's a play on words because I'm from Hartford Connecticut. I am a very nice person but not a pushover, honest but not rude, and pretty but not concieted. When I write I do it for myself but I also hope other's will enjoy it. If they do great. If they don't fine. Enjoy!
