So, from now on I can comfortably say I have 17 years of life experience.
17 is not a lot compared to many people but it is to me because I am the oldest I’ve ever been. I cant say I haven’t done anything SUPER impressive.
However, I have come very far especially these last few years. I’ve found friends that I love spending time with and I’m in an amazing school filled with amazing people from all over the world. I’ve found things that interest me and I’ve been able to excel at things I’m good at.
Never did I feel hopeless or frustrated with what or who I had become. Of course, there are times I’m ashamed of something I’ve said or done but I’ve learnt my lessons and have forgiven myself.
Bear Grylls is a huge role model in my life and one thing that he has taught me that try to follow every single day is ‘Be the most enthusiastic person you know’
I probably would be a completely different person if I did not live by that quote and because of that, I look at a new day with optimism and excitement.
Anyway, I just wanted to speak my mind on my birthday, I’ve got a lot going on right now and will do a proper update when I can.
For now, I’m going to have to think of a cool ending to these blogs.
