    I have this school mate

    and I've known her since we started college but it was only last year when we became close friends. She's fun and all but lately, conversing with her makes me want to hate her. :) It's not that she's annoying though. In fact she's smart and is such a great listener. The reason...

    Doing What's Tough

    One of my warmest memories is attending my aunt's funeral three years ago. I didn't want to go. It was at a Catholic Motherhouse for nuns in Texas. My aunt was a missionary nun from Europe trained to do missionary work in the US...sort of a strange concept for me. I didn't know...

    My class threw a halloween party yesterday to

    raise money for prom and all seniors had to go. It was on my last year's new year's resolution that I'd get myself out of my comfort zone and try new things. I've done that a lot throughout this year but one thing that was still on my list of was going to the next halloween...

    I don't ever really show that much skin. But I looked so good today, at every angle😂

    I have found some semblance of routine in the

    new life I have made for myself. The streets, the trains, the businesses, the culture, and even the weather is different from what I knew. I am on a routine now though and I'm hopeful it will be better than what I've known. I've found time for my morning walks again and I missed...

    Maybe I'll go skydiving.

    Maybe I'll sky dive without the parachute. That would definitely get me out of my comfort zone. Or maybe I'll put down the hash and collect my thoughts. Think I'll do that for a while.

    I was diagnosed with avoidant personality

    disorder. That means that you don't dare to do anything that can make you be noticed bc you are afraid of being judged or rejected. As I am old now and made therapy to cope with it, I take a better life now but it was a nightmare when I was a teenager or a young adult. I know...

    I already do this on occasion,

    I just need to do it more often. I think the best memories are made when doing things outside one's comfort zone.

    You would always do better

    when you get off the comfort zone. Because that's when you know the importance of being responsible and mature to do things on your own.
