Today, like many other days, the job search begins. I find that when I am not looking, that’s when all these jobs want me to be a part of the magic, but when I am really really trying to find something, they are all hiding. The irony baffles me, but hey, that’s life

Back on subject.

I took a short break from the grueling work day (jokes), and decided to watch a movie that I have never seen before. I went on my HBO GO page and picked the first movie at the top of the alphabet titled “About Time”. Not sure if any of you have ever heard about it or seen it before, but I really truly liked it. I also thought, what world am I living in for not knowing this movie because one of my favorite actresses of all time was in it. Rachel McAdam’s. Babe.

Carrying on.

Its a movie about a guy who lives a pretty boring life until he discovers that he can travel through time. He does not have the ability to change history but he can, in fact, change some of the major, or not so major moments in his life. This movie is basically a decision of what he makes of this gift.

He immediately goes back in time to try and make a girl fall in love with him, but he soon realizes that maybe she is not the one for him. He moves to London to move on with his life and become as successful as he possibly can, as an up and coming lawyer. He finally meets a girl that takes his breath away, and through his time traveling, and quick wit, was able to win her over. The built a beautiful life with one another.

But what Tim, the main character, realizes soon enough is that his time traveling abilities cannot save him or his family from the unexpected tragedies that affect everyone everywhere in a lifetime.

Tim learns, throughout this whole process, that maybe he didn’t need the time traveling to make the most out of life, and maybe, things just happen…because. It is a funny love story with a touch of sadness, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Obviously the movie isn’t a work of fiction, but it taught me a thing or two about the craziness of life. We always wish that we could change how things play out, but in reality that just takes away from the beauty of it all. If we knew how things were going to work, we would never be able to make the most out of the life that we are meant to have.

“We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.”

This quote says it all. Stop worrying about what you need to change about the past. Live in the now. Focus on the now. Be in the now.

definitely check out the movie though.

You Deserve This

0079cda9c0b99c18c44841921c0185f3Being back at school for my spring and final semester definitely has me feeling a lot of mixed emotions. I am sad one minute, happy the other, stressed another, I cannot keep it together.

So many things go into this final semester. The job search begins, which is my top priority at the moment. But above all, its the ending of one chapter, and the beginning of another. This is the moment where I truly need to figure out who I want to be and where I want to end up. What the hell do I know? I am just a twenty something college student who likes to watch cat videos on youtube in her spare time.

I am so torn between staying young forever or truly figuring out who I am by growing up. Your college memories will probably be the best times of your life, and I am not sure I truly want to leave. I mean, I know I have to. But the thought of leaving my friends and not having a set specific schedule anymore is really tough for me. These girls have been there for me since freshman year when we came in so terrified, and we have gone through it all together.

Heartbreaks

Failed tests

Family problems

Bad decisions

We have all been there for each other, no matter what stupid decision or drama that has tried to stop us. So why leave? I am not sure I want this chapter to end. Or this next chapter to begin.

Who do I want to be?

Will I like my job?

Will I even have a job?

These thoughts are all running through my head, as I am sure they are running through every other seniors head as well.

I take my walk to class every day, and I just think to myself. “I am really lucky to be here. At this school. Surrounded by these people.”

I am lucky.

But its not luck.

I got myself to this point, obviously with some help along the way, but I wanted this.

What I am saying is, although it may be hard to leave, I deserve to succeed. I deserve to finish this chapter, and begin writing the next.

And above all, I deserve to be happy, no matter where I am, or who I am with. And I will continue to remember that no matter where I end up.

There are so many inspirational people in this world, with a hell of  a lot to say. Athletes, models, presidents, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, teachers, etc. So many people have different outlooks on life, and many have been quoted for these.

I am providing you with a list of my favorite quotes of ALL time. These quotes range from love thats lost, love thats found, life mottos, friendships, and striving for success.

I hope that from this post, you do not just learn some new quotes from some different famous people. What I want is to come to a conclusion as to what you live by, who you want to be, and why you love who you love.

It sounds strange, but I believe that we all have different life motto’s. I know that I do. Why do we make some of the decisions we make? Who do we look up to? Why do some things bother us, while some things don’t? Why do we choose to disagree with people at certain points in our life?

We have values. Goals. Dreams. Fears.

Like us, these people have these dreams, these goals, and these fears. They were able to put these forces in their lives into words. Into quotes. Into mottos.

These are the quotes that we see all over social media, newspapers, and music.

::::::::Here is my list of favorites::::::::

1. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover. –Mark Twain

2. Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. –Charles Swindoll

3. When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down ‘happy’.  They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. –John Lennon

4. I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.Marilyn Monroe

5. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.— Pablo Neruda, 100  Love Sonnets

8. If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything. –Mark Twain

These are eight of my favorite quotes, not because they were said by some truly inspirational people, but because, like others, these get me through life.

I hope that one day I am able to inspire people like they have inspired me.
