Bastille - Haunt
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my future and where I want to go after graduation. My first year at UCLA was quite memorable, but I think I could have done better in terms of advancing myself in preparation for the real world. I let myself sit idly, hoping that opportunities will come my way. I lost sight of my drive and determination to fight for something more than what’s in front of me.
But not this year. Anything and everything I want, I will fight for it ‘til the end. No distractions. Spending part of summer in Spain was a reminder that anything is possible if I put my mind to it. If I want it, I’m gonna go get it. Nothing is going to stop me.
This was a symbolic summer. I lived out my youth in every way possible. And because of that, I feel matured and grown. This carefreeness, I’ll never forget it. But the real world is calling now, and I’m coming at it with open arms.
May the space between where I am and where I want to be inspire me.
Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime.

Feels like I’m coming down from the highest high of my life. Spent the summer riding out the waves of euphoria, only to be left with melancholic ripples as life settles back into routine.
People get hurt when they feel entitled to things. Just be grateful for what you have.
