There he was in the hall.

A rush fell over me.
If only. I felt my cheeks beginning to burn. No, no. Not again. The anxiety was toppling all of my other thoughts. I wish I could get noticed. I wish he would notice me. No I don’t. What would I do anyway? The red pigment in my cheeks shined brighter. No, calm down. It’s fine. Stay calm. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. Simple. No, not simple. Emotions are too complex, why should I care? But I do. I say I don’t but I do. I want to be noticed and not ignored. I want to be admired and not looked past.

Lifting her left leg she staggered slightly, catching herself before the trip. Her foot landed loudly onto the ground. She giggled excitedly, the overwhelming feeling she had felt was gone and she was overcome with such a joy. Her mother watched her and smiled.

Hope for the Future But Ignorance to the Present;
Today was another day i have yet to realize the importance of every little moment. I constantly look past everything in hopes that what comes later is better, but then often find myself disappointed over and over. Each day fails to live up to what I thought it could be as I fail to reach my goals. I put things off constantly, which does me no good in the end. Again, I hope the future will be better and fail to change whats right in front of me.
