Personal Journal of Doogie Howser


        Sometimes it just feels like an extension of high school. It’s no different. Cliques and the social pyramid – yup, everything still intact. You got the jocks, which here translates to the student athletes. You got the popular rich people who are the social elites, which are of course the frat boys and sorority girls. You got your nerds, which are the academically focused co-ed fraternities. Yes, Alpha Chi Sigma, Chemistry fraternity, I’m looking at you.  We’ve got the slackers, which mostly are the art majors, or the Poli. Sci. majors. There are the stoners, which here translates to… well, stoners.

        I supposed more often than not, people came here to learn. People came to have a good experience, too. Just because someone goes out four times a week doesn’t mean she has a poor GPA. But there are those people who work twice as hard and don’t nearly get good grades. That’s life I suppose.

        Point is, whether it’s high school, or college, and I’m guessing the real world, people are going to be classified. Labeled. By the things they do, the people they hang out with, or the things they can afford. And sometimes people let those names determine their worth. It’s a scary thought, but it happens. I don’t know what my label is, and although I am curious as to how the world sees me, I don’t care that much to worry about them determining my worth. It’s human nature to classify things. We like order, I get that. But it should also come naturally to us to learn to shake things off. To ignore people. To rise above what is expected, or even what has been set for us.


Why worry, when you can pray?

“Don’t worry about anything, but in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. And the peace of the Lord, which surpasses all understanding, shall lead your hearts and minds and Christ Jesus.”

Phil 4:16-18



He’s listening.
So is she.
They all are.

Life is full of little wins.
Or monumental ones.

I haven’t had one in a while.
But I do know that when it rains, it pours.

You’re in control.

Always. Always. Always. 

friends like you

TGY came to visit me today. i love her, obviously. although we lost a year together, we’re making up for it now. every conversation is valuable to me. i’m glad we’re gonna be friends forever.

Amanda and i were texting earlier. i lover her as well. so many great things can be said about this person. i see us being friends for life.

Chiara and i hung out today. i wish she was in my life more. she’s the kind of inspiration i need to be the person i want to become. i love her and the way she motivates me.

i am blessed to have people like these in my life. yes, they are not my best friends and they have their other friends. but these people give me a different kind of joy in life. friendships worth fighting for, even though sometimes, i feel like we have very little similarities.

love knows no boundaries.

i do have a lot to say

people come and go.
by choice, by circumstance.
sometimes you have to fight it.
sometimes you have to let go.
but it just sucks when both sides don’t care about it.
and the next thing you know,
you wake up and they’re not there anymore.

but life is still kind.
it lets you keep people worth keeping.
if they’re not in your life right now,
there’s a reason they didn’t make it in your present.
maybe it’s a mistake.
but for the most part, it happened for a reason –
whatever that may be,
however unclear it may seem.

most important of all,
life goes on.
