i’ve just had two HUGE revelations in the last hour or so…
one about school & my future career & what i need to do (and the possible back up plans) to get there… and even though i’ve been having multiple mental breakdowns about my plan to be a doctor one day, i think i’ve finally let myself accept that it’s gonna be okay. not gonna be easy, but it’s gonna be okay. next few years of school (both undergrad AND grad) are gonna be rough, but it’s gonna be worth it. being a doctor is something i want. it’s a dream i refuse to give up on. and therefore, i’ll make it. because everyone who knows me knows i’m a stubborn bitch, and i’m gonna fight with every atom in my body to get what i want. which brings me to my next revelation…

about us… except i know how i actually came to this revelation… it’s through giving someone else advice about their relationship… for some reason, people still come to me about relationship advice as if i know all the answers… as if my love life is totally & completely put together. well, just to let you people know, it’s not. my love life is a hot mess. and i mean “hot” in every way possible - fired up fights, burning love, hot sex, and stinging words. my love life is a “hot” mess lol. but giving advice just now… the words of wisdom i offered easily came out of me… not because my words were some typical bullshit corny cliche type of advice that you give because you don’t wanna make the person feel worse about their situation, but i guess because they were true & honest & real. the advice came from the bottom of my heart, from my first hand experience of the “hot mess” types of relationships. the truth is… “hot mess” relationships are probably the best ones… because they’re real. fired up fights don’t magically sizzle down. burning love doesn’t suddenly disappear. hot sex.. well.. everyone knows that if sex is good, it’s always good & if the sex is bad, it’s always bad lmao. and stinging words always linger for awhile. “hot mess” relationships? those are the real ones. those are the ones that show you two people refuse to give up on each other. and i like to believe that that means, we’re okay. we are the perfect hot mess couple.
