Gosh I’m bad for keeping this in my box for a week.
8: (So I really hate definitive qualifiers like MOST because I feel like that adds so much pressure when answering questions- however I will do my best) There are many things I am proud of and I do not want to sound arrogant or self-serving when I say this, but I am really proud of myself. I say this because merely 3 years ago I was a very different person than I am today. I was outgoing, but scared of rejection. I was independent, yet co-dependent and seeking validation from others on a constant basis. I was smart but naive about reality. I was accepting of others, but still judgmental in my own mind. I can safely say that because of some very influential people in my life I have changed many of those qualities that contradicted the person I always thought and hoped I was. I can say with a clear conscience that I am more outgoing, more independent, smarter, and more accepting.
24: A little over a month ago I planned a trip to DC to go tour a prestigious graduate school. About a week before I left my mom sat me down and told me just how proud she was of me. She talked about how she bragged about me to the people at work and even if I didn’t go to that school, she was proud of me for living my life and going for my dreams. That meant something to me.
For Good from Wicked - Lisa Shinn Probably every year through out our growing up years, Lisa’s mom always said they were moving to Maryland to be with their family, and it got pretty close to the deadline once and we were in love with this musical at the time and somehow every time I heard ”Because I knew You, I have been changed for good” I would begin to cry without ceasing at the thought of her leaving.
If it Means a lot to you by A Day to Remember- Andrew Holmes While Andrew and I were in France together he introduced me to this song and now every time I hear it I have the urge to call or text him because I just associate it with him.
Good Directions by Billie Currington - My Mom When I was in Junior high around the time of my parents separation this song was popular and it used to be our happy song together. No matter what had happened that day or how sad we were, we could turn it on and both of us would get these silly smiles and start to sway to the song and sing it as loud as we could and just be happy together.
