Sometimes I miss Hawaii, but other times I’m so glad I chose to come to the mainland for college because you really learn so many life lessons. I thought I was mature coming out of high school, but apparently, I was not. And I probably still am not. Life is just continuous process of learning about yourself.
Coming to a school like LMU, I am one of the poorest people in this school. I soon realize this after the first month at LMU. Everyone you meet turns out to be rich and super rich. And of course there is big difference between the rich and super rich. After a certain point, you realize how ridiculously spoiled this school turns out to be. I’m not going to complain about living in this type of community, but you realize how ungrateful some of these people are for how much money they have. Then you realize they aren’t that much happier than you are. It’s so weird how coming to a rich school like LMU taught me gratefulness.
Coming to this school has really taught me what truly is important in life. You can have all the money in the world, but it won’t save your health or buy you real friends or family. Of course, you need some money to live a comfortable life but you don’t need a lot.
For now, my goal is still to travel the world and experience what the other side of humanity is like. 95% of the world does not live some dream life like West LA or Hawaii, as a matter of fact, and yet this is the only two places on Earth I have truly experienced.
I guess I am still an ignorant person.
