I have just finished some pretty major layout changes. The header, font, layout, and background have all been adjusted to fit me now. Though I realize my background was sort of iconic for my blog--I've had it for three years now--it was time for a fresh look.
I feel like I am losing touch with this blog, though I will continue to write in it as long as I feel appropriate, because I feel it is a valuable time capsule. I may continue this blog through college, or I may start another that would better fit my growth as a person, a writer, and an artist. Regardless, I am so grateful to have a place to document and record my teenage years. I intend to make great use of this space as I wrap up my senior year.
I have finished the last of my college applications and I find myself counting down the days till graduation. Less than one hundred school days now. Less than one hundred mornings to wake up to at six A.M. I am suddenly ready to take the next step. I find myself awaiting my uncertain future with open arms. I seek a big city. I hope I can somehow stumble upon the perfect opportunity that would allow me to attend art school.
This summer will be the best of my life, though it feels so far away. I have a deathly case of wanderlust and senioritis, and I feel nostalgic for the future. I miss things I have never had and I cherish the things I will undoubtedly miss. I am soaking up every moment, but I am ready.
I seek change.
