So welcome to September. Sure, it’ll be hard work, but there’s plenty of new starts and rest to be had as well. September will be, but a dream, and we’ll get woken at its end. Let’s strive to make it a good one.
Good night, internet friends

Anonymous asked: I'm having serious anxiety about school starting tomorrow. I'm scared because I always fail and I don't want to disappoint everyone again. And I'm tired, and I'm just not sure if I can handle the stress. You're always so cheerful and positive, so I thought maybe you'd have a bit of advice for me and anyone else who is scared about school? How do you remain hopeful?
Oh my dearest friend, I have been in your exact same shoes. You’re probably not a size 6 1/2 in men’s, but you know what I mean. I hope you don’t mind a bit of a story.
My first year of college was perhaps the most terrifying time of my life, especially in academics. I was screwing up left and right, falling short in all the work I wanted to do well in, and it was just an overall lonely time as I saw so many people departing from my life when I needed them most. I ended up failing English 201: a class necessary for my transfer and one pertaining to my very interests.
It was all very disheartening and for awhile, I was depressed and lost all motivation to carry on. I just wanted out of school for awhile, but I knew I had to go back.
What got me back on my feet after months of despair and dreary was this song giving me a much needed wake up call. I listened to it for the first time, laying in bed, and staring at my top bunk, light shining through my window sill. I had every right to be happy, to be my best and do my best with what I had, even if things hadn’t been perfect for a long time. Everything that was aimed for something better I had a shot, I just had to get the braves to take it.
There are going to be times when you’re going to be scared and without the approval or support of people around you, but it’s not a time you’ll stay in forever. Take heart. Take a stand. Take aim at that better you you want to be, for yourself if no one else. A little bit of confidence and a few braves and you’ll have people that’ll spur you on, no matter how hard the challenges and where you end up. Though the worry of failure and disappointment may loom above you, you have a shot to make things different, this year, this semester, this next day. Start keeping your chin up because you have no idea what wonders you’re gonna see when you’re looking skyward.
I believe in you, friend.
You’re gonna rattle the stars, you are.
