What better time to start a blog than what feels like the busiest and most stressful time of my life. I need an outlet and seeing as I feel much more secluded from the world than ever why not let my thoughts and memories pour out like the ones contained within a pensive. Yes, that was a Harry Potter reference. There are several aspects of my life I am trying to change. People change easily, but I have learned making drastic changes within oneself requires determination. The last few months have taught me quite a bit about myself. For example, I’m stronger than I thought. But on the other hand, I must learn to overcome my fear of confrontation that I have built up over the last few years. Speaking up and expressing my thoughts has become harder since high school and I still struggle with demons of the past. I can say I believe in myself all that I want but I must prove it by actually seeing changes occur in my life.
