One More Year

Posted on 16th November 2007

Welp, I turned 26 today. I think this calls for a review of the last year of my life.

At the age of 25, I can only call this the year of change. I quit UPS, my parents and sister moved out of Ohio, and I moved to NYC. 25 was the age that I learned who I was and who I wanted to be. I went on a mission to find out what I wanted to do with my life.  I wanted to know where I would be in 10 years. To help aid my search, I moved to New York City in March. There I learned that life has a lot more then just college and drinking. I learned that I have potential and talents that society needs. Because of this, I decided to move back to Ohio to complete my education and increase my experience in the field I felt I was good at. I also used my experience and lessons learned to keep in mind that NYC was where I wanted to live. That is the fuel I am using to get through school. I know from the bottom of my soul that I want to go back to NYC after college. That is the lifestyle I want to live. I love the bustle of city life. Ya it is nice living in the suburbs and having cars to go anywhere, but being able to meet so many different kinds of people in a square block is more important to me. The bottom line for me is that I want to prove not only to myself, but to my friends and family that I am someone great. This is important to me. Why? Because I want them to be proud of me in every aspect. They know that I have a kind heart, but they don’t know that I am capable of great things. I never seem to follow through with what I say. Times have changed. I _have_ to follow thorough with everything. The move back to Ohio was good and bad at the same time. My friends are awesome. They have expressed nothing but gratitude for my return. They know my potential. They know that I am capable of great things. They also know that they now have the chance to see my evolve to that. I am thankful for it. I am thankful I have family that cares for me. If not for them, I would be some junkie on the streets. I know this.

That’s all I have for now. Its a bunch of rambling, but it is all true. Thank God for everything. Thank God for me and my family and friends. I would do anything for them.
