A Reflection and Predicting My Future

This post is gonna be a wee bit different than my usual posts. I'm gonna reflect on how I've changed throughout my ninth grade year at Treasure Mountain Junior High. Cause what isn't more fun than to read/write that?

At the beginning of this year I was really unsure of who I wanted to be once my seemingly endless days of being a teenager ended. I knew that I wanted to leave Utah and travel to a place where I can find people who are more like me but I had no clue as to where that place would be or who those people are. But as the year progressed I became more familiar of what I wanted to do. And I've also found people who I relate to and feel comfortable being myself around. And thanks to endless google map searching, I've found the perfect area to live. The Pacific North West! I don't really know where in the PCW yet but anywhere from San Francisco up is good for me! And after being invited and going to an environmental film festival (thanks Faith!) I've discovered what I wanna do with my life. I wanna do something with ecology and human impact and basically just saving the Earth. So yeah I guess you could say that I've changed and realized what my path truly is.

And I guess you could say that I'm more in touch with my free spirited side after this year. I've always been a kind of a rule follower and a subject to societal norms, but after this past year I have become more adventurous. Before, I went on long trail runs to get a workout, but now I go on trail runs to get lost (and to get a workout). To get lost both mentally and physically. I love to just get lost in my thoughts and when I go running I can get totally misplaced in my head thinking about what my life truly means and such. And there's been plenty of times where I have just gotten completely disoriented and on a completely new trail, so I call my dad (who's an avid mountain biker and has probably been on every trail ever) and we figure out a way back home. So yeah, I guess I've changed in the way that I've become more acceptable to the idea of being free.
A picture that I took this year in California. And idk I just like this photo. I was
adventuring when I took this photo so I guess it relates to my this post.

And like every year of my existence, I have gotten to know myself a little better. I'm so happy to be on this absolutely glorious planet. And another year here has just heightened my fascination in living. So that was how I've changed this year, I hope I didn't bore you into your inevitable death. Thanks for coming along with me on my ninth grade blog journey!
