My geometric print shirt is ironed, my banana socks laid out beside my bed. My water bottle is full to the brim, my glasses polished. Tomorrow, I step into a place I wouldn’t dare find myself ten years ago… sophomore year.
Freshman year was wholly unique and amazing in its own way: I learned a lot about myself like what situation I’m comfortable in and vice versa, what I can handle, who brings out the best in me, and so much more.
But this year, I don’t get to sport the excuse of being a freshman anymore. No more $60 on Starbucks in a month, or refusing to pack lunch because I’m just feeling lazy. This year, I do MAJOR big kids things: I start studying for the LSAT, I do this thing called “have a leadership role,” and I get to be responsible and not leave my car in a random alleyway when I’m late to class.
And because I get to actually be a big kid, I guess it’s time I started acting like one. And what better way to be one than make a blog post about the things I’m going to start doing as an ~adult~ instead of actually doing them?!
See, right now Starbucks is resistable because well, THE HOLY GRAIL of drinks isn’t out yet. Yes, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. UGH, the Peppermint Mocha. Take all my money and soul!!!
I mean… that was the old me. THE NEW ME WILL ONLY GET STARBUCKS TWICE A WEEK. ok…..thrice a week.
5. Responding to emails and texts as soon as I get them.
As opposed to ignoring them until five seconds until it’s considered rudely late. I wonder if I could go to hell for this.
6. Praying on time.
As Muslims, we’re required to pray five times a day that are determined by the sun’s position in the sky. As a lazy Muslim, I have trouble getting this done on time and I need to not ha help me dear lord.
Anyway, that’s me! Besides the obvious (maintain a high GPA, avoid douchebags and men in general, be nice to everyone, do nothing illegal, etc), those are the main improvements I want to make in my life/things I want to accomplish.
Also, to visit the moon.
I write to express my passions, views and opinions on different types of cheese, and to heal myself. I am an aspiring law student and hand model for McDonalds. I currently reside in the United States, and study at UT Austin. Most importantly, I wholeheartedly hope you enjoy what my work has to offer.
