I feel like this year was a lot about narrowing in on where I'm going in life. Last year was getting used to the whole being on my own thing, this year I got into my stride and took charge of things. I decided I wanted to go to London for a semester next year, and I made it happen. I had tons of fun and crazy times with my awesome friends, had a ton of fun, went through a few rough patches too, but managed to work those out, always.
Also worked my butt off in some of the most awesome classes I've ever taken. Creative writing made me realize even more that writing is what I want to do, especially hearing a published author say she thinks I have what it takes. Detective fiction was just hella fun, I mean, come on, Sherlock Holmes, and I discovered some other authors that I've fallen in love with. And of course Anthropology turned out to be the most enjoyable and coolest science class I've ever taken, I mean, Julie was with me and we had just the craziest and best TF ever. Awesome moments in my life have often been marked by songs. Anthropology is the reason that the Ardipithecus Ramidus song
is now among those songs.
But, as I've realized at so many points today, I've never felt so sure of myself before in my life. I feel like I'm where I should be, doing exactly what I should be doing. Thinking back, I don't think I could have imagined I'd be where I am now, going to school in Boston, about to go to London...but it's amazing. I'm so grateful for everything and everyone in my life, I'm so excited to see where its going to take me next. You know that old cliche about the whole wide world being spread out before you? I really know what that means now.
My life is awesome. True story.
Wow, another year done and holy crap I'm halfway through college. Where did the past two years of my life just go? Like, since when was I 20 years old and a junior in college? HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!!
