Lessons learned

1. I need to enjoy spending time with myself >>>Since I’ve been young, I’ve been a social butterfly! I love love love spending time with family, friends or pretty much anyone I meet! Whether it’s shopping, going out, grabbing a cup of coffee or going out to dinner, it’s always fun to do so with someone I can have a great conversation with.

Two songs encompass how I feel about my life and my first quarter of senior year. I couldn’t help but jam to Good Life by OneRepublic: Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want. We’re young enough to say…Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight. Like this city is on fire tonight. This could really be a good life, a good, good life. AND The Good Life by Kanye West: I always had a passion for […]

Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge. Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head high […]
