So I'm 19, and I like being excited for my birthday. Because celebrating another year of existence, at least for me and all my various illnesses and allergies and random incidences, is a pretty big accomplishment. But I like where I am now a year and a day after high school officially ended. I found a very fun, hip, smart group of kids to hang out with. I met a few people who I grew close to, you know, the types that you always want to talk to. I reconnected with one of my best friends. I survived freshman year of college. And I managed to change majors. God know what'll happen this year, but I am ready for it!
