I know that my title makes no sense at all. But since I am not a ‘bee’ that would fit in the title quite perfectly, I decided to make use of ‘Karrot’ — a name Kevin, a good friend of mine, started calling me these past few days.
I’m in the middle of editing an article for BL’s June release but decided to give myself a break because of the amass of political terms I’m not used to working with. Admittedly, being transferred to this section is a challenge considering my two-year Features background, but I’m slowly getting the hang of it (or at least that’s what I’m convincing myself to believe in).
My summer hasn’t really been a ‘chill’ summer like what most people want their summers to become. I have always been on the go and constantly working my ass off school and org work. In between, though, are the little trips I make with my family so there really isn’t time to bum around the South. I like it actually, being out of touch with my comfort zone. Yes, I’ve somehow lacked time for the people I’ve been used to being with, but establishing new (and lasting!) relationships this summer has been the highlight of it all.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that these two months have been very kind to me in so many ways. It has shown me proof that change isn’t as bad as we think it is. Change is good — especially when it involves a change of heart, mind, and soul.
