XOXO, Michael Brown

The readers submitted some questions about life, love and everything in between. I answered them as honest as I knew possible. I’m here to keep it real with you when no one else is and to answer with no judgment because I don’t know you! I’m just a college senior who enjoys giving his opinion. Here are some of the questions I got this week:

What have you accomplished thus far in life that makes you most proud?

I don’t want to sound cocky, but I’m proud of a lot of things I have accomplished. I’m going to keep my answer simple and say the thing I am most proud of would be keeping a positive attitude and trusting God through anything in which I’ve been through. Life is not a cakewalk, and nothing comes easy. If there is one thing that I have learned it’s everything happens for a reason, whether that reason be a blessing or a lesson.

What is your least favorite quality about yourself?

This is difficult. I really enjoy myself actually, but I find that at times I can be sort of a push over. I say yes too much — I need to practice saying no to people.

I’ve been thinking about moving in with my boyfriend, but my parents would freak out. What do you think?

I say go for it. You’re young, I’m assuming, and have nothing to lose. I don’t see anything wrong with living with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Don’t do it too soon though, there are a lot of things to consider when making such a big decision. You should value your parents’ opinion and listen to what they have to say.

Are you scared to graduate?

I’m not scared, just slightly nervous. I am very excited to move away and start some fabulous life in a nice city and just live in the moment. I pray I am just able to find a job that I love waking up and going to everyday. As of right now, what I want to do is kind of up in the air. I just want to enjoy myself. I want to work in a nice modern space where I don’t have to wear a suit everyday. Life is about making changes and evolving. We shouldn’t be scared of change because it can be a good thing.

What it something you’re most grateful for?

Right now I am grateful for those who I call my friend today. I am so thankful to have had the opportunities in which life has given me. I have a lot to be grateful for.
