It’s been almost a year since I last posted anything here. During that year, a lot has changed. For one, I’m now attending college, something I believed would never happen. Currently I’m studying with the intent of graduating with a degree in international business.
But a lot more has happened over this past year than just me finally getting into college. I took a trip to France for just over a week, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower and decided I can function perfectly fine in another country. I also decided I disliked the invisible leash my Grandparents had me on. I want to go back again someday just to prove to myself I would love France even more if I got to explore it the way I wanted to.
I’ve also learned a lot about myself. I found out that I am a very intelligent human being when I apply myself (straight A college student) and I love rugby.
Funny story actually, I absolutely hated my first rugby practice, and all my team mates knew it. They were expecting me to quit within a week, but I stuck with it and ended up starting our first game. I then proceeded to shock the hell out of everyone when I threw myself into every tackle ruck and scrum with a vegence. There is something impowering about playing rugby that has done wonders for my confidence. I finally feel like I fit in my skin. I’m comfortable with who I am now. I just have no idea how to grow from here, and I haven’t quite moved on from who I used to be. Like I said, this year has been step 1, and there are a lot more steps I need to take for me to become the best person I can possible be.
