Ive been in Chicago now for almost 4 whole months. TIME SURE DOES FLY!!!!!!!

What I really want to write about, is the growth I see in myself.

Being here has molded me into a much stronger person. 

I find myself handling situations in much more mature ways than I would have 4 months ago. My attitude about life has changed. I now see everyday as an oppurtunity to be inspired by the beauty around me. My favorite thing to do everyday is learn something new about me, or explore my feelings tword a certain subject. I started my blog as a diary to help me keep track of my journey of Growth! But I also want to share my life, ( with those of you all who are actually willing to read lol) with others, because we all, as humans deal with the same issues, body image, self esteem problems ( am i pretty enough, am i smart enough, will people like me etc…). Im NO WHERE NEAR PERFECT, but ive learned that thats what makes me, ME :)

Self-Change should be 100% up to you and NO ONE ELSE ( hints the name “self-change”). If someone is trying to change you, or mold you into what they want you to be, or what they think you should be, stand strong and don’t give in. No one, and I mean NO ONE has the right to try and tell YOU how to be YOU!

I hope this post is seen by someone who is battling with self esteem or identity issues. :-). And I hope they learn to love and except themselves and realize that there differences are what makes them, THEM.


F2F; Breakeven - Taelyn

This could not be happening. He asked one thing of Adam, just one thing and he still did it. Deep down, Topher knew that Kaelyn would never intentionally kiss him or anything like that, but that text was like a knife in his heart. There he was, trying to surprise Kaelyn on an actual date that he made his Momma advise him whether or not it was good enough for her, and she was out with another guy. Sucked. Rereading the same sentence over and over, Topher’s anger got the best of him and he threw the phone at his bedroom wall. It was then, without a jacket or anything, Topher took off out of the house. He walked for about ten minutes before he finally ended up at Kaelyn’s door, knocking loudly.


“So, we’re shadowing the headmaster of this lovely school?” Achilla muttered to herself, a smile on her face as she said it, liking how it sounded like music to her ears. “Nice.”

Ciara ‘mm hm’ed back, engrossed in a comic she’d started to read a couple weeks ago. It was due to boredom, but she found herself unable to even close the book (well, aside from lessons of course).

Parker smiled a little bit, perhaps this was their chance to learn something about him. The man was pretty mysterious, everyone agreed about that, and she’d always wondered about him.

Taelyn, despite usually being upbeat and excited, didn’t seem too bothered about shadowing Ozpin, their freaking headmaster. He seemed to be more relaxed today, a sight rarely seen.

[F2F] Apples Needed - Taelyn

When Kaelyn told him that she was going to go the doctor’s alone, Topher was not going to have it. He was already in the car when he got clarification from his girlfriend. What else would he do but go sit through an appointment with him? It’s not like hospitals or doctors freaked him out anymore. Pulling up in front of her house, Topher got out and went to the door. Knocking only twice, he leaned against the wall, waiting for her to come out the door.
