Day One

Well, it's the new year. It's 2014. The year I apply to college, the year I turn 17, the year I take the SAT. This year matters. It's quite scary to think about actually, but I have a feeling it'll be a good one.

Looking back all the way to January 1st of last year, so so so much has changed. I had my sweet sixteen; I got my license; I was a counselor in training at camp for the first time; I went on amazing trips; I feel in love with my dream college in LA; and finally- I completely reorganized my life.

I'm quite a different person than I was a year ago. Never in my life have I been as organized as I am today- and it feels great. I can't do anything without a checklist for starters and I finally am able to keep track of my life. I've always been pretty well organized; just not like this. It's crazy to see what a year can do.

I also can't believe I'm still alive. First semester of junior year practically killed me. I was constantly stressed, always sleep deprived, always crashing from too much caffeine, and filled to the brim with anxiety. I wasn't exactly the most pleasant person to be around. But I made it through.

That brings me to what you could call a resolution. This next semester isn't going to be much easier than the first. I'm going to try my hardest to make it a better one though. The one thing I always forget to do is to relax. My goal is to try to make more time for that.

It's cliche, but I'm honestly going to try to make every single day count.

I need this year to be good; I really do. 

Here's to 2014.
