It was a Friday night and my face was wet with tears. I just happened to be throwing myself a pity party. I had locked myself in my dorm room and was watching SOAP on repeat, intent on never coming out. You see, I had recently been broken up with and I thought the world was coming to an end. Wallowing in self pity, I couldn't find my way out of the darkness that I was in. It's a good thing I was in college, and I had friends good enough to barge in the room (Holler, Steph!), tell me to get dressed, and wisk me away to a party at Purdue! I was completely hesitant, but knew I needed to do something to get out of my funk, so even though it was almost 10 PM (WHAT?? I've always been an early in bed type of person!), I got dressed and decided to go.
This little 1 hour road trip away from Indy, was life changing to say the least (no really, to a 20 year old...it was!)! It was my first time merging onto a highway, my first time driving through a drive-thru window, and my first time going to a frat party! Whew...my world was a changing! Lol. We had a blast that night talking to and meeting new people and even dancing some (No, I didn't get drunk, as I didn't drink at the time! - but who needed it! I was on an obvious high after merging onto I-65! haha) We drove home at about 2 AM, and as we pulled into the parking lot, Norah Jones "Don't know why" came on the radio and ended the perfect evening away from my wallowing!
I tell you this story because this month's selfie I did an in-camera Double Exposure. I've never done this before but have always been intrigued by it, soo I decided it was high time I learn it! It wasn't just me, but also my cat, Remmi who starred in the pictures...sometimes I think just me by myself is a tad boring, so why not spice it up with a cat, right?!?
Anywho, being a double exposure, it just made me think of how it's never too late to reinvent yourself. It's never to late to be more than one thing, and it's never to late to decide to change things if this life isn't going the way you wanted...You can't let one event in your life define you, you have to move on and remind yourself that you are the one who decides what your future will look like! And if you can't do that...go to a party with your friends - it works, trust me! -Abby
