It’s been spring for a minute, guess what that means?
JK I’m Latina every season is cleaning season. (Again, perpetuating a stereotype,but I’m high key glad I’m not a slob like some people)
Lately I’ve been thinking really hard about what I want out of life and what I am going to do with it. In know I’m going to grad school, but there’s so much to figure out. So much more to figure out now that I am for sure getting my degree in Latin American Studies.
Like holy cow what does one do when she wants to solve all the world’s problems?
Last night I watched Residente’s documentary about the making of his latest album (released last year), and was beyond inspired. He is truly just freakin astounding. He speaks up for people who aren’t heard, he creates music that has purpose and is magical, like everything about this dude is amazing.
Here I am worried about an evolution exam, stupid boys, and stupid girls. When in reality, I was put on this earth to accomplish so much and now is the time to get going. No more excuses or doubts, your girl is going after everything she wants.
Which is why, I’ve decided to do all sorts of cleaning. Just one big ole spring cleanse sorta deal. I started with my social media, and the rest of my phone. Music, notes, voicemails, photos, anything you can think of to go through and delete, I did it. I have to go through my computer and then of course my closet etc. I’ve been studying for an exam and deleting stuff during the little breaks I take, it’s surprisingly therapeutic.
I’m not deleting or cleaning to forget, although there are some parts of my life I’d gladly forget. I’m doing this to take a step forward. I don’t want to give too much away about all the ideas running through my head, but I will say that one day “blogger” will be one of my job titles (gonna have like five obviously because yay student loans).
I wanna use my writing and everything else I have to offer to make the world a better place. So I no longer have time or energy for a lot of the things that were unnecessarily taking up my time or thought space before.
Not to be dramatic (even though I totally always am just a little bit), but I’m gonna be a whole new person. Right after I survive this exam *insert upside down smiley face*.
Time to bump Eminem’s Cleanin Out My Closet while trying to memorize names like Ardipithecus and Australopithecus.
