So for those of you who know me well, you know like for the last month or so I’ve kind of been in a sad, kinda depressing “funk.” That’s the best word I know to describe it. For those of you that didn’t know, well now you do. I let things and people get to me and bring me down and I just haven’t been myself. I let things affect me that shouldn’t and it just brought me down to a
lowpoint in my life. I went a little crazy over the last month: I never wanted to be home and sad, so I wasn’t. I came home only to sleep for almost a month and barely that. I would get up and be gone by 9 or 10 every morning (7 on those morning class days) and not be home until anywhere from 1 on school nights to 4 or 4:30 on weekends. I neglected school, responsibilities, and my family. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a bomb ass month filled with fun and adventure all the time, out and about all the time to cover up being sad. But on the inside, I just haven’t been myself - kinda empty and distant.
But that’s over. I’m done with that mentality, I’m done with being sad. Over the last week and half I’ve been picking myself up, dusting myself off, and doing a lot of thinking. Life is far too short to be depressed and sad. And that’s not me. I am and always have been Mr. Happy and living any other way just won’t cut it for me. I’ve had the help of one of my best cousins and best friends, Ateh Haley, along with some great friends like Jenny, Sarah, Roma, Kirstie, and my ‘girlfriend’ Kristen, who have been there during my down, depressed times to hold me up and keep me from falling over. This last week I’ve also had the help of a new friend, who has restored my faith in people and reminded me of what it’s like to just be happy. Without those people to guide me through the tough times (and others of course) I don’t know what I would’ve done. Now it’s back to what really matters, time to re-prioritize and re-organize my life, get back on track. Of course I’m not gonna stop doing all the fun stuff and going everywhere, just not as much as I have been. But it’s time to get back to what matters: my education, my family, my sanity (haha). I need to keep up with all my work, study harder, and spend more time with my grandparents. Life is just too short not to be happy and content. I’m thankful for all the wonderful people and events in my life that have help me realize this. I’m truly blessed.
WATCH OUT WORLD: BRANDON IS BACK! :D
