When you wake up, wake up with determination and gratitude that more opportunities are waiting. Each and every day is a gift, and another chance for us to make a positive impact.

Good vibes! So in history class we had to do a name game where you said your name and one thing you think the class should know and I said that I was nonbinary and someone was like "what's that" and I was like "basically I'm a gender that's not a boy or a girl" and everyone was super accepting like "oh yeah that makes sense" and no one was condescending or anything!

so I don't technically qualify as a kid (i'm 21) but I just wanted to share that I'm finally starting college after dropping out of high school (because haha mental illnesses are great). Since I'm new no one outside of the administration knows my birthname and I'm just very excited so yeah.

Thoughts after watching Forrest Gump

I sit here with tears in my eyes and a full heart after watching Forrest Gump for what was probably my tenth time.
I was having a particularly rough day earlier, but this movie once again reminded me of how beautiful life’s journey is, despite the obstacles we may face and the people we may lose along the way. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies; it evokes such relatable, real ass emotions that make us uniquely human.
IMO, we need waaay fewer films about superheroes, and more films as heartwarming and inspiring as Forrest Gump.
This movie has once again reminded me to
LIVE - IN - THE - PRESENT.
Life is so incredibly short. As I get older, I feel that time is speeding up; if I blink I may miss something.

My only hope is that my limited time living this life is well spent. I may not know where I’m headed, but I know it will be great.
