Dear readers, this is my last post for my blog “AUBG relationships.” It feels like a lot of time passed since I wrote my first post, but there are still so many things I would like to talk about. I could go on and on …
It’s the end of the semester and yet again, I’m asking myself the same question. I’ve learned to meet my deadlines, I’ve learned how to use different programs, to be responsible, to be curious, and to ask questions in order to seek some responses. Most importantly, technical details aside, I learned a lot about people; by interacting with them, understanding what they think about or how they view those things for that matter. For each week, I was interviewing a person with a different perception about things; about love, relationships, marriage, culture… I can say that I am extremely happy that I chose this topic. Even though for some the topic of my blog might not sound that serious, or my blog posts might not have this intelligent approach on things- I am proud of what I did. I have learned a lot not only about people, but I have learned a lot about me. Even though I never wrote about it, I have found out what I love, what I like, what I fear, and what I want. I have found out how I want my relationship to be, what I can or can’t forgive, what I am willing to go through for someone who I love and what not.
I have been convinced once again, that if you are truly in love with a person, nothing can set you apart. I have seen happy AUBG-ers being in love. I have seen them get married. I’ve seen them suffering though the long distance, but then again as they say : “The happiness that they have when they are around their loved ones is much bigger than sadness when they are not around.”
I’ve learned that people can make mistakes in relationships. They can lie, they can cheat or they can do something else which can hurt you. But then again- we all make mistakes. We should all learn to forget and move past it. Or if we decide not to forgive, we should learn how to let go. But if you love each other and “If you have strong feelings nobody, nothing can destroy the relationship.”
If we are lucky enough, we find our soul mate in college. We might go through hell, but love always finds a way. I am a believer; I believe that if given enough effort from both sides, anything can work out. I am happy and I respect those AUBG students who are giving effort to keep their relationships after college. Even though for “most- it doesn’t work out- for some it will.”
Does it matter that we speak different language or we have different skin color? “The understanding of relationship for me and him is the same. Opinions on responsibilities of boyfriend/girlfriend are absolutely the same.” Diversity comes from many difference places, some people see it as skin color, and some people see it as a language we speak. When I think about diversity dance comes to my mind. A group of dancers work together to create one, beautiful unit movement while each dancer hears and feels the music differently. Isn’t that what diversity is about? Bringing together a group of people to work together in order to create something wonderful.
And then last but not least, I was once again reminded about the importance of friendship. No matter what happens to you, if you are happy or sad, friends will always be there standing by your side. “Friends are the closest thing to family one can get in college” – and not only in college. They tend to become an essential part of your life.
I hope all of you who ever entered my blog, enjoyed reading whatever you saw, and more importantly learned something like I did. For the final video I decided to ask AUBG students couple of questions to find out what they think about. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed working on it 🙂
