SCHOOL'S OUT!!!

I want to do a quick reflection on this past school year. I moved across the country last summer, and was the new girl once again. I remember my first day of school like it was yesterday: my hands were slightly shaking from nerves, I kept thinking of the worst scenarios, and I felt like a fish out of water when I was trying to find my classes in an unfamiliar building. This year was a big change for me, and quite frankly, I hated it at first. All I could think about was my old school and my friends that I missed so much! The first few weeks of school, I was so focused on making as many new friends as possible and making sure I "fit in." But that fake-ness can only go for so long, as it made me really unhappy and even more lost. So as the year went by, I matured a lot and realized it was my attitude that needed to be fixed. Instead of being so negative, I tried to focus on what I do have and what makes me happy. This made me grow into a much more independent person, and I think I truly know who I am and what I stand for. I am now very thankful for this experience. A person can only grow if they are placed outside of their comfort zone! 

Just when I started to get adjusted to my new school, I made the decision to move again this summer. It's kind of hard and long to explain, but basically I am going to college a year early. So again, I will have to pick up where I left off and start over. Well, actually not start over, but it is just another chapter of life! Although I dreaded moving last year, I can't wait to start my own life in college. I am sure that it will take time for me to adapt again, but the experiences I got this past year will help me have a positive attitude about it! Honestly, now that I have moved around so much, I think I would get really bored after living in one place for more than five years. 

Change can be scary and it is definitely harder to take the road less traveled. But if there is one thing this year taught me, it is that change should be embraced because you never know what opportunities lay ahead unless you take a chance!

Thank you all so much for reading, and here's to a summer full of memories!

xo, Dahye

it's a lovely dress, I know what you mean about moving and starting over. As an ESL teacher I have moved from country to country for work, and it was hard at the start, but now, as you said, I am a lot more focused on who I am and what I want. Change should be embraced for sure, and I hope you have a lovely summer :)

You're absolutely right, change can be a very scary thing sometimes. You leave the security of your comfort zone and all your familiar surroundings to start anew, meeting new people and trying to adapt to a new environment. I'm really proud of you for seeing the positive in things. I think you'll find that as you go through life, you'll continue to encounter major life changes and decisions, but I'm confident that you will adjust well. You seem like a very adaptable and level headed person who will find the beauty in every new situation. Life is an adventure, enjoy every moment!!
Plus, I know you'll live it in style! You look absolutely stunning in this outfit! I love the dress :)

Ninguém quer ser o alvo do
atirador de facas, mas todos
queremos ser amigo das pes-
soas de cujo sexo o nosso é
diferente.
Amanhã, sábado, eu vou contar
o bicho que deu numa relação
desse porte.

Te espero lá.

Beijos, tô te seguindo.

Thanks so much for your lovely comment! :)

I remember the situation of being 'the new girl' as well, it is always awkward when everybody else is familiar with each other since kindergarden or so...
But just like you said, cpoing with those situations makes you strong...
And moving is really addicting, I am constantly thinking about moving, couldn't imagine to stay at one place for 10 years or so...

Drop by soon again :) Follow me on bloglovin if you like ;)

Oooh, your dress is the cutest !!
I love the pink and blue color together, it's so feminine and sweet like a candy.

"A person can only grow if they are placed outside of their comfort zone! "
That's so true, I love this sentence. I think it's the reason why I love to travel, I always feel I'm a new person when I'm back home. It's only when we move and discover new things that we can learn, and be someone better.

Noé,
Couleur Spleen.
