Today I turn 22. Here's everything I figured out in the past year, mostly the hard way but at least I have a lot of memories!
I still want everything.
My goals have not changed since I entered college 4 years ago. Even after I grduated last year, I snapped back to my normal self. I want all the parts of career life... I want freelance life, full-time life, lazy life, all of it. I need to figure out how to organize that.
God is so good.
If you would have told me what would've happened in my 21st year, I would have laughed but also been like "You promise???" The things I've done in art and Instagram have been so fun. In addition, the people who came into my life and left my life surprised me immensely. I can only thank God for all of it.
Following my heart on my social life and staying true to my self has been the best decision.
This is corny - "Be yourself!" But for real. I deal with a lot of "Why don't you go out? Why don't you date? Why don't you go to festivals?" And this past year I was so tempted to not be myself. But! Last minute, as I continued to be myself, it all worked out. People came in who supported me and I'm not pressured to go out, I'm called and checked up on to chit chat about work... it's so beautiful to me. Hope this lasts!
