Here Goes Nothing…

A few days ago I was making the trip home from school in Boston. The weather was morbid, the backseat was cramped and the radio reception was fuzzy. For a little over eight hours, I complained, groaned and bitched in between my half-conscious naps. The day was ugly and my attitude was also very ugly, a fact that made me disappointed in myself. Here I was after the conclusion of one of the most exhilarating years of my life and all I could focus on was my lack of leg room (which is just ridiculous since I’m only five foot two and our car is actually spacious!). I had no real reason to be so grumpy. Then again, I think people rarely do… it could almost always be worse.

Two days later, I’m sitting in my room, staring at my two giant suitcases, realizing this is the last summer of my childhood. 20 is just around the corner, and after this year, summer will be about internships and entry level copyediting positions (read: bitch work). Then a career… then (hopefully) a family and before I know it, I’m waking up at five in the morning and don’t even have a minute to apply mascara. Here I am, on the verge of actual adulthood, and all I can do is complain and focus on the negative. This makes me even more disappointed in myself. In the midst of this early quarter life crisis, I’m resolving to dedicate this summer to really living life to the fullest, to appreciating only the beautiful and ignoring all the little things that frustrate me on a daily basis. In an effort to keep this goal in the forefront of my mind, and perhaps bring beauty to someone else’s life as well, I chose to create this blog. Summer 2011 is all about the beautiful life I am lucky to have and La Belle Vie is dedicated to documenting that life. I’m going to try my hardest to only concentrate on the positive and stop complaining about things that won’t matter in the long run. I’ll be reporting back here every day to share! Wish me luck blog universe cause here goes nothing…
