I’ve realized that as much as I want to skip ahead and go to college and explore the world, there’s a lot left for me to do here. I’ve got a lot of life left to live at home with people that I love around me. Change sucks, but so does staying the same. I’ve found it very valuable this summer to work for the things that I want to achieve, and to work for them for me. Constant progress means avoiding a state of sameness. I can’t wait to keep working for my goals and to see what this upcoming school year has in store.
