Right now I truly loathe many things, the biggest being how inconsiderate some people are and how much my body really hates me being in it.
i hope you fall in love with someone who makes you question why you ever thought you would be better off alone
because my co-worker, who is about seventy or eighty years old, recommended me for a Fulbright fellowship. Which doesn’t mean a whole lot in the long run, just that someone believes in me enough to say, yes, I think you can do this.
It got me thinking, of how I’ve always wanted to travel, and thought that money would never let me go anywhere. Of how I’ve always believed I was smart enough to do something powerful, but never knew what. Of how I’d always wished someone would go out of their way and say yes, I believe in you. Someone who has lived much of their life, and turned around and said I think you need to do this.
And suddenly, someone has gone out of their way to show me that maybe this is possible.
My boyfriend has been badgering me to look into studying abroad, what if this is my chance?
What would stop me other than not a good enough idea to get accepted? I have a 3.96 GPA and a pretty good eye behind the camera. Photographers have gotten Fulbright fellowships before. A major that isn’t really recognized many places? I’ll figure that part out. Money to afford the rest of the expenses? I guess I’d have to figure that out too, but I have a whole summer to work and get that under my belt.
What an amazing experience it could be, one that I’ve always wished I could do. One that someone finally thought I could do.
Maybe I can.
