I've been asking myself for a few days: Where did the year go? It's crazy to think we only have 3 months left of 2018. This year flew by and has truly tested my strength, resilience, and faith. I'm anxious and excited for what's to come. This is my first time not having to go to school in about 17 years and I love the feeling. I love having more time to myself and more time to work on my art. On the other hand, I'm so used to being extremely busy that I don't know what to do when I have free time. I'm figuring out what I love to do. I'm learning my hobbies, my likes and dislikes for the first time. I think I prefer being super busy because I don't have to deal with myself. With me constantly being on the go for the past few years, I've been able to ignore a lot of things. Now that I'm alone more than usual, I have no choice but to face myself. It's scary but I think it's going to be rewarding. I feel like I'm growing, maturing, and becoming more of the person I've always wanted to be.
