My Journey

My Past

Describing your past is a really difficult task. I never really think of who I was, I just focus on who I am. However, I guess if I had to describe my past I would say that I was dedicated  to learning, family oriented, a basketball player, a friend, and an avid reader.

Several events have changed me over the past year. I have gotten a bit more out of my shell, however, I am still very family oriented. I decided not to play basketball anymore, and I am a firm believer that my choice was one of the best I have ever made. I am still a friend, but not to the same people. Over the course of the last year,  friends have changed, and even though I am sad about losing friends, I am thrilled with all of the new ones. Since high school has begun, I am a different person. I like different things, and I am beginning to realize just how crazy my journey is going to be.

My present is a blur of homework, books, and tests. I am wanting to run track in the spring, but other than that I just want to be me. I like riding horses, reading, babysitting, and helping other people. I am involved in 9 clubs right now, and have a leadership position in several of them. I work hard to do everything that I can, I am constantly trying something new, and I am in the process of figuring out who I want  to be.

Don't Cry over the past, Its gone. Don't stress about the future, It hasn't arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful.

My Future

I don't really know what I want to do with my life. I am always going back and forth about everything. I don't know where I want to live, who I want to live with, or where I want to be in ten years. I just do my best to make the most of everyday. I try to keep faith, family, and hard work in focus, and I am hoping that those things will lead me down the path that I am supposed to go down.

I do know that I would like to be a lawyer. I really like law, history, and helping others, so I feel like law would be a good area for me to get into. Im not sure where I want to go to law school at, but Cornell has offered me a two week trip up there this summer to see what law school would be like.

I really don't know what Im doing, but I am doing the best that I can everyday to positively impact my future.

I one day hope to be a lawyer.
Im not sure where I hope to live, but I wouldn't say no to a house like this.
I hope to one day have a family of my own.

Let go of the past and go for your future. Go Confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life that you have imagined. - Henry David Thoreau
