This is the conclusion I came to this week. Wednesday, I was in a car crash that could have been much, much worse than it was. Thankfully, I escaped with barely any injuries, and I am incredibly thankful for that and have realized how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away. It was a horrifying experience, and yet it served to show me that we all need a wake-up call every now and then.
As for an update on me; I'm currently attending college majoring in Art and probably getting a degree in education so I can teach art as well as create it. I love helping people and bringing my influences to others, so I feel as though that will definitely be something I'll enjoy. I'm also playing soccer with an awesome team at college. It was different playing with people I've never met before when I'd played with my high school team most of my entire life, so it is certainly a heartening experience. Alongside that, I'm also coaching a team of 9-10 year old players and they absolutely amazing.
College life is hectic; tons of paintings due all the time, plus papers, homework, and the like from other classes filling up my time. The hectic and busy schedule is what led to my crash, and I've realized that I need to prioritize things and spend more time resting and eating regularly rather than be on the go 24/7.
In any case, hope you all are doing fantastic; it's been a while since I've heard from tons of you. It's really unfortunate how distant people become as they grow older and away from communities. I really miss talking to a lot of people I've met online.
