The the future! That may or may not be a Free! Eternal Summer reference.
Anyways, I've been thinking about the future a lot recently! I went to a HUGE college fair on Sunday and I got to talk to a lot of different colleges. I'm eligible for need and merit based scholarships, so I already know I can afford to go to college. The think is, which one do I choose? Well, because I'm more language oriented ( I can learn languages relatively fast and easy) I decided to try and major in something like that. I have a particular interest in Spanish and Japanese.
The college I'm considering is called Central Washington University. It's a pretty small place and it's VERY beautiful there. The tuition and other expenses are pretty cheap too. They are part of a program called WUE, which I forgot what that stands for, but basically any residence who lives in the western U.S. can pay in-state tuition to places what are part of WUE. Since I live in the west, I can pay in-state tuition which is like 75% cheaper
Also, this school has TONS of majors and minors that I'm considering. I'm looking at either Asian Studies, Japanese, International Relations, and Translation/Interpretation. They also have teaching minors! So I could Major in Japanese while minoring in Bilingual Teaching. Basically, I can learn Japanese while learning ti teach it! It's cool <3
I'm only 15, so I have a while to think about it, but I like to plan ahead~ It makes me feel comfortable. If you thought this whole journal was going to be about college, YOU'RE WRONG! There's more!
I've been able to maintain positive for about a week now! A new record! I'm developing good thinking habits and behavior. The first week is hard, but I can only hope that it get easier! I hope to at least be able to remain okay when something bad happens. Usually, I just freak out and lose it, which causes me to fall into a slum of depression. I'm trying hard though! I have a lot of techniques that work if you're interested. Some of them are cliche and seeming unhelpful, but they work! So if you're struggling with anxiety or depression let's work on it together!
I'm always looking forward now. I won't look back! That means I'll finally be able to draw more since I'm not focused on anything in particular anymore <3 I'm excited to finally feel better and I hope these feelings of mine can reach you too and we can all bask in happiness
Well, TO THE FUTURE!!!
