This Time Last Year v.1

This time last year my life was a lot different.  I was still at boarding school with my brothers and loving it.  Sometimes I find myself missing the school and wishing I was back, but I do love being in Virginia with my two older brothers and going to school online.

While I don’t know what I was doing on this exact day last year, I know it was in early February that I finally decided to get some social media accounts, with Twitter and Facebook, so I could stay in touch with my family and friends living in Connecticut and New York.  I think I had shocked a few of my friends when I joined Facebook since I had never been interested in the social media thing, but I know that it’s quickly becoming a requirement for getting myself known out there as a potential photographer and designer (when my skills are a little more developed, that is).

I was also still sort of recovering from losing my parents.  I remember spending a lot of hours locked away in my dorm room because I didn’t feel like talking to many people.  There was one person who wouldn’t let me be alone 24/7 and I really have to thank her for her persistence because I might not have come out of my shell as much as I did.  She really showed me what it means to be a friend and though I don’t see her all the time now, she’s the most amazing person to have entered my life.

There’s not much more to say about what I was doing at this time last year, I was fourteen, in school and slightly depressed.  The good thing is that thanks to the best people in my life, I am doing better now and loving where my life is heading.

Thinking of Family

With that huge Blizzard hitting the northeast tonight and tomorrow, I can’t help but worry about my family and friends who live up there.

I know we all survived the blizzard of 2011… or 2012, I don’t remember the exact year.  Either way, we did go a while without power.  I just hope this time it’s a little easier for everyone up there and that they all stay safe and warm.

Not much to this post, sorry.  Just wanted to express my concern for everyone in the blizzard’s path.

But if any of my siblings, cousins, friends, etc. from back home are reading this… I love you all and stay safe.
