I’m so lucky,

I’m so lucky to have a family that goes out of their way to make sure that I get what I need.

I’m so lucky to have a group of friends that I can turn to with everything and anything knowing that they will support me even if they don’t agree with me.

I’m so lucky to have someone who loves me and treats me well.

I’m so lucky to have the opportunity to have a college education.

I’m honestly just so lucky.

Gain more knowledge. Grow your mental ability. Read, read, read. Don’t just watch TV and movies. Virtually all highly successful people do some form of daily educational reading. Regardless of what they read, they make sure it contains useful and meaningful information from which they can benefit from in the long run. Statistics show that the average person reads less than 1 book per year. If you could read 1 book per week, that would mean about 52 books per year. Now imagine what an advantage that will give you over everyone else.

24.02.17 // planning my week back to college! really excited about the new career i’m going into (and really excited that i get to plan everything ahead.) ✨ i’m using my ban.dō 17 month planner

You know, when I was in high school in Korea, there was this one month I was forced to attended an SAT prep class by my mother, and the instructor was this American, and I’ll never forget him saying, “I mean sure, 2200′s a decent score. I guess you could get into, well, Cornell. But if you want to get into Harvard–”

I would laugh, but it breaks my heart to know how many students - in the world, not just in Korea - cling to this idea of brand name colleges. How damaging. How many youths grow up thinking that there’s only one way to be successful, one way to be happy?

I’m just grateful I learned better.

How I feel when I realize the opera is in a month, the Honors Recital is a week after that, and my own recital is a week after THAT.
