Weekly Challenge: Room




This was my bunk at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. I didn’t graduate from WWU because I hated it. I didn’t make many friends, I hated all of my classes and I almost slid off of a cliff during a leisurely jog.

Back then I thought I was going to fail at college. I flunked most of my classes and came home with my head hung in shame. Because I had graduated high school with honors, captain of the speech team and member of several campus groups. However when I decided to go outside of my comfort zone and out of New Mexico I failed.

When I got back home I moved into a apartment as I took classes and worked at Burger King. I thought that if this was my future I might as well suck it up and get certified as a ultrasound technician instead of pursuing a dream in journalism.  Then with the support of my friends and amazing professors at UNM, I switched to psychology and found my zen.

I finished college with a dream of traveling and writing. If I could tell my 18-year-old self anything I would have said, it’s okay to fail because at least you tried and you just have to try again.

  1. Sometimes that is what we need a break away from stress, to revamp our path, then we find a path, a purpose that was truly made of us and we can really begin to enjoy life, again. I’m glad you hung in there, took a different path and now enjoying your life, you deserve this. Best luck in your endeavors.
