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.
