sometimes its crazy to see how much your life has changed in a year. it happens little by little, so you don’t always notice it happening. but then all of a sudden you look back and realize nothing is the same. i can’t believe how different things were at this time last year. i think this is the first time i can actually say that nothing is the same. it hurts sometimes when i think back to last year. i was so happy. not that im not happy now, but its a different kind of happy this time. i feel older. last year i was so excited to turn 16. i couldn’t wait to drive. all i wanted was my freedom. i had everything i could have asked for. im scared for 17. this past year has been the exact opposite of what i was expecting. so much happened. so much changed. it hurts to think about the people i was so close to last year, because some of them i haven’t talked to since then. i lost some of the people i thought were closest to me. but i guess that’s all part of growing up. you find that people aren’t who you thought they were. for the most part this year has sucked. ive been more stressed than ive ever been. but there were some amazing parts. i made a best friend. the kind of best friend you can talk on the phone for hours with, tell anything to, and just have so much fun with. i went to prom with the most amazing group of people and had the best time. i have a boyfriend who is always there for me. ive done some stupid things, made a lot of memories, and made some pretty bad decisions. sometimes change isn’t a bad. sometimes your life needs to get completely turned upside down for you to realize what you’ve been missing. i turn 17 on tuesday. all im doing now is praying that things stay this way. thanks to everyone who helped me pick myself back up when things got rough, was there for me when i needed them, and who made my year suck a little less.
Hes the best(:
