When I’m 25, I want to look back and be proud of my decisions

Growing up, my sister and I had to take care of ourselves because both our parents work. And after observing the dynamic at home, we formed our own opinions about the way relationships work. I guess that’s why, while I always say I wish I had someone I hold particularly dear to my heart, I’m completely okay with being on my own because I hate the thought of having to baby a man who isn’t in tune with his emotions, or one who is awfully insensitive. Spare me the anguish.

I am excited about researching and learning more about a topic related to my degree field and to hopefully make some new friends along the way

For my research topic I chose immigration in the United States. Right now I am in the process of obtaining my degree in Homeland Security so this topic is very related to my future career field. Since immigration will play a big role in my future I wanted to take a deep dive in to researching it and determine what the pros and cons are of immigration in the United States. I was thinking of narrowing it down a little more than just immigration, and focusing on just one group of immigrants, like hispanics or muslims. In America today we are very divided when it comes to this topic, and this is another reason I want to research on immigration; to determine all the pros and all the cons so we can find a middle ground for both sides to agree on.

I’m going to start to be more edgy and wild

Keywords: {0}

I want life experience and I want to not care so much about what I should do or how I should act. I don’t care about that anymore. I’m going to live for me and be the bad bitch I know that I am. I am going to look super innocent looking but in reality be very smart, thoughtful, edgy, wild and someone who just does not give a fuck. I love dressing edgy and I love being edgy. Fuck being an innocent child. Fuck that shit.

Younger kids often don’t have a filter yet and are very honest in their opinions

Speaking up is a very scary thing to do, especially when you’re going against the norms or the only one speaking up. But I’ve also learned this year that sometimes in situations by not speaking up at all, your silence can speak numbers and it can seem you agree with something that is wrong. And sometimes you will have to speak up and stand up. In the TED talk by Cathrine Sandland, she does a really amazing job explaining why we need to speak up when things are too important to stay silent. I like to believe I’m slowly gaining confidence in my voice and speaking up when it matters most to me and others.
