Today was one of the most incredible days I’ve had in recent memory (: Times like these also leave me feeling a little lonely because I wish I had someone to share it with. But it fades pretty quickly, which is really nice too because I love being single haha. This post is purely for me to acknowledge my accomplishments because I don’t do that enough.
I’m putting this here in the Tumblr just to officially acknowledge it to the world (because clearly the world=Tumblr). Work has been going incredibly well, I essentially have carte blanche in creating programs to promote student success. I’m managing counselors in mid-level position as a recent graduate, with a crowd of people who share my passion to help disadvantaged students.
I truly get emotional when I speak to people about what I do because, by default, I always see myself as some random punk kid. I never saw anything particularly extraordinary in myself, but I had people around me that saw things differently. I honestly don’t think I would be here today if it weren’t for people believing in me.
I had dinner with my Asian-American studies mentor from my undergrad, and we talked about life and its fruits. I’m working out a fundraiser in which I’ll be matching donations to grow the department’s endowment fund so they can have more money to give out scholarships and create programs. We talked about my goals to end prejudice (easy, I know) and to utilize Hip-Hop as a tool to explore Asian American masculinity.
I was able to be myself today, and be completely comfortable in my own skin. For the first time since I can remember, I feel complete with personal peace. And it feels amazing.
