So, it's been a while.
Since I last updated, it has become 2012, I have become 21, I am about to start my senior year of college (!!!), and I'm growing up a little bit (baby steps).
This summer hasn't gone exactly how I had planned, but it's given me a lot of time for introspection, which I think I needed. It's like I get these small, daily revelations about life - about how I think about myself, about how I treat others, about the places in my life where I need to make improvements.
For example, I am realizing that I need to be better about managing deadlines, especially if money is involved. I also need to learn when and how to be politely assertive rather than being shy and meek out of the desire to not put anybody out. Basically just learning how to socially interact as an adult.
There's a lot more to this than I can even wrap my head around right now, but as I am able to put things into words I'll share them.
Until then, shalom.
