365 Days Later.

Happy-new-year

Life moves at this pace that is almost impossible to keep up with. When they say it goes by in the blink of an eye, they are not kidding. When I woke up (pretty late) on the first of last year, I was a different person. I was young and all I seemed to care about was getting a new car and leaving home. Now as I go into the last night of that same year, I simply want to have my family and friends by my side and for my education to continue. I feel like I am no longer a teenager, but an adult.

Growing up is a part of life, and I know someday I will want these years to stop going by so quickly, but for now I love them. I love that I can read my old posts and see just how much I have grown in these last months. I love that I have photos to look back on my year.

Being 18 is one of those ages that makes everything seem beautiful. Sitting in a small college dorm, eating french fries with every meal and sleeping for about 5 hours a day all seems amazing. I am in that age where everything seems to be breathtaking. I am so grateful for this year. It was outstanding, is outstanding.

I want to appriciate time. I want to savor my life. I want to bask in everything, everyday. I love each moment. The change is inevitable and all I can hope for in these next 365 days is that I change yet again for the better.
