I want to do a quick reflection on this past school year. I moved across the country last summer, and was the new girl once again. I remember my first day of school like it was yesterday: my hands were slightly shaking from nerves, I kept thinking of the worst scenarios, and I felt like a fish out of water when I was trying to find my classes in an unfamiliar building. This year was a big change for me, and quite frankly, I hated it at first. All I could think about was my old school and my friends that I missed so much! The first few weeks of school, I was so focused on making as many new friends as possible and making sure I "fit in." But that fake-ness can only go for so long, as it made me really unhappy and even more lost. So as the year went by, I matured a lot and realized it was my attitude that needed to be fixed. Instead of being so negative, I tried to focus on what I do have and what makes me happy. This made me grow into a much more independent person, and I think I truly know who I am and what I stand for. I am now very thankful for this experience. A person can only grow if they are placed outside of their comfort zone! 

Just when I started to get adjusted to my new school, I made the decision to move again this summer. It's kind of hard and long to explain, but basically I am going to college a year early. So again, I will have to pick up where I left off and start over. Well, actually not start over, but it is just another chapter of life! Although I dreaded moving last year, I can't wait to start my own life in college. I am sure that it will take time for me to adapt again, but the experiences I got this past year will help me have a positive attitude about it! Honestly, now that I have moved around so much, I think I would get really bored after living in one place for more than five years. 

Change can be scary and it is definitely harder to take the road less traveled. But if there is one thing this year taught me, it is that change should be embraced because you never know what opportunities lay ahead unless you take a chance!

Thank you all so much for reading, and here's to a summer full of memories!
