...and when I'm gone, there's no turning back.

I made it through the first quarter at my new school in Miami. It's been three long months and I'm still ready to leave more than ever. I am, however, being more optimistic about the rest of my stay here. I'm really determined to find a job in retail to gain experience in the area and to save for my very first apartment. I do a lot of complaining about what I don't have but I never actually try to change that. Well, now I will.

 top & bag: thritfted| skirt: forever 21| shoes: Ross

I realized I don't have to depend on anyone but myself to get the things I want. My mother was doing it on her own at my age, and she had a child. It's just me, so if she could manage I definitely can.  I just want to start being more responsible and stop sitting around waiting for things to happen. It's time to start making them happen. The first step is finding a job. Second, getting the hell out of Miami.

  23. I know what you mean and it was the exact same with my mom whos had me when she was young. And even as a single mother with 2 kids, starting from scratch I don't know how she did it, yet sometimes I complain and think omg, I have nothing to wear blah blah. And as for taking the bull by the horns, I am going to LA and NYC next week. Life is too short to sit around and wait to shit to happen. I've realised no one will do things for me and help me with my career. I have to go for it on my own

  24. @Snowblack: That's EXACTLY what I mean! I'm glad you're getting something done. I actually want to move to New York. Even though that's going to take time, I'm not making any steps towards that direction smh. I have been doing a lot better since I wrote this post, though. Finally starting to make things happen.
