My birthday isn’t for a while but every time birthdays come around, there’s always at least one person that says, “Do you feel any older?” And usually, my answer is “No, not really.” But I think, when my birthday comes, I’ll say, “Yes,” this year.
Not “old” in the sense that I’m getting wrinkly and am losing my hearing.
More “old” in the sense that I can honestly say that I think I’ve grown to be a better person in the last year, maturing, and also learning so much about myself.
Finished up with my Sophomore year in college, I think it’s a good time to reflect. This year was filled with so many different things. My freshman year of college, I came in not knowing what to expect, getting a taste of what it was like to fail, realizing that things just don’t come to you and that you have to go get it. I found that classes weren’t a breeze like they were in high school and how the “real world” was actually only a few years away.
With all that in mind, this sophomore year was a huge progression. This year, I feel like I’ve figured out more about myself. And here’s how I’ve grown up.
