Be with someone who motivates you to be a better person, understands your pace and helps you improve it, respects your good ambitions, helps you unlearn dangerous patterns and habits. Someone who you love but don’t centralize. It is so important to understand the difference between loving someone with all your heart (which is beautiful) and removing your own core by replacing it with them (which is not love but extreme dependency).

My favorite thing at the moment is making lunch/dinner/drinking at the pub dates with people because I’m terrified of leaving this school without making connections with people one-on-one. My plan right now is to meet with at least ONE person each week and bond over food/drinks. This is working out so well so far. Wonderful conversation. Very yes.

I didn’t do drum corps for long, and I was only in marching band during high school, but aspects of that life seep through sometimes, like

When high school students for a program that is not band-related get super distracted, I want to go straight up drum major on them, and it drives me nuts because I know that is not the appropriate response but part of me kind of doesn’t care because I want organization but most of me is like, ‘Elyse, stop being controlling,’ but UGH. And then I remind myself of times like the time when people quieted down for me just because I smiled and did a cut-off to signal PLS SHUSH, and ah… that was a nice time. ;-;
