365 days of endless possibilities. This is the year of ME. An open road with only myself to figure out where to go.
So many things are happening this year. I’m graduating. Finally leaving the public school system that I’ve been in for so many years. This also means, that I’m leaving behind friends, and other friends are surpassing me to go to bigger and better schools, thousands of miles away.
This is also the year of the unknown. It won’t be until May that I know where I’ll be in September. And even then, there is a lot of uncertainty. Who will I be rooming with? What major am I going to be studying? What classes will I have? What city will I be in? Am I going to be fine without my parents? And the friends that I’ve counted on for years. Even right now, there are quite a few people that have committed to schools, and they have their next 4 years planned out. This makes me a little nervous, it’s such a big decision and I still haven’t heard back from many of my schools. Additionally, I would be leaving the safety I’ve had for the past 7 years of school and routine.
Along with that, there’s also archery goals. As much as I want to put more time and effort toe the sport, I have a feeling that archery and competing is going to be taking a backseat for this year, at least while I’m finishing senior year. There are a couple of tournaments that I really want to go to, but as of right now, I don’t know how feasible that is.
With the amount of work that I’ve put into graphic design last year, I’m finally going to take the plunge and start my own freelance business. Along with that, I want to put myself out there and apply to graphic design positions with local agencies. This has potential for a lot of rejection, but I will never know if I don’t try.
I’m willing to give it my all, and see where I end up.
This year is unwritten, blank pages of a book left for me to fill in the blanks. I have ambitions for this year, and plan to fill every page with memories and accomplishments.
