Hello People!

I am exhausted like you don't have idea of how tired I am and I don't really know why. Today I had a great day in French but I have to admit that I was very distracted at the beginning because I was talking with my dad about university.

Good thing today: mom cooked me one of my favorites dishes and I am suffering right here because they are over and I want to keep eating forever but oh well.

Day 5: Something you need to vent.

Talking today about university with my dad today gave me the inspiration to write this article. It was the perfect moment that I realized that I needed to vent about this. So lets go!

Here is the thing, I firmly believe that things happen for a reason and they happen for the best of our interests. I graduated this year from high school and, as a normal graduate, I was supposed to start university this Fall aka August aka this exact month. And do you think I am starting university? BITCH I DON'T THINK SO.

Why is that? Well, it is actually not a bad thing. I was accepted in almost every university I applied. I am going to study in the US therefore I had to ask for a F-1 (student visa) but it couldn't be processed because my Residency is ongoing and I can't ask for other ways to enter the US legally (like a F-1). In consequence I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR to start university.

Here is why I Vent:

I am a person that doesn't like to waste time at all, I am that person that thinks that taking a year to start college is a waste of time (obviously this is my opinion in my own personal life). Therefore being told I have to wait a whole year to continue my studies, to take that step forward that is going to bring my dreams closer to me, is stressful.

I see my amazing and talented friends leaving to university to study their dream careers, starting that path to independence, meeting new people and going out of the bubble that our country's society has created, and I can't stop feeling so happy for them. I have celebrated every acceptance letter and I have smiled so wide for them because I am genuinely happy. My chest bursts with pride that these amazing humans being are getting what they deserve.

But I feel left behind. I am going to graduate a whole year AFTER all my friends (except Mema). I just...i don't know I see all my friends diving into this amazing adventure that college and I see them on the sidelines. I want to leave clear that I am not jealous, nor sad, not angry, is JUST PLAIN OLD FOMO.

Well yeah, let us cry.

Well I guess that's it!
Hope you liked my article and have a nice day!
