My New Life

Once I actually got to university, I discovered that I hated politics, and my grades reflected it. They dropped dramatically and I began dabbling in things I'd never even considered, like casual sex, binge drinking, and even drugs. I even became a stripper for a short time. I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't regret the things I've done. But looking in hindsight, I might have done things differently.
So recently, I dropped out of school to avoid wasting all that money. I moved back to the United States, became a make-up artist, and got a cat and a car. I even picked myself up a boyfriend. I'm getting to know all of my old friends again and I'm just loving my life right now.
Some people say that moving is the worst thing that ever happened to them. But in my experience, moving has always saved me in so many ways. It always brings bigger and better things to the table.
So I suppose the point to all of this is that change really isn't as scary as I thought it would be. I used to have a phobia about change, and now I sort of accept it as a really fun part of life. So embrace change!
