do you ever read people’s tags and get like damn why can’t I hang out with this majestic funny motherfucker
I’m going to be 23 in a little over a month and I started reflecting a little bit on my life. This will be long, I apologize in advance haha
I am incredibly lucky. And will get to look back and know that I have lived. Oh, have I lived.
I grew up in Olympia, Washington. One of the most peaceful, loving, creative cities in the world (but who’s biased?).
I grew up with my just my mom and I. She raised me as a single parent and worked a job she hated so she could provide me with a good life.
I also grew up in Seattle. My dad and step mom moved there when I was little, so I got the pleasure of spending every other weekend there. Seattle is so unique, and has so many fun music festivals and art shows, culture and diversity.
Thanks to my dad, I have also gotten to visit Chicago, and New Orleans three (four in October!) times.
Got to visit New York, Philidelphia, and Washington DC when I was in 8th grade for a class trip. Saw all the historical sights, times square, the Statue of Liberty, the Capitol, war battles and historical houses…. when I was 13 years old.
With my mom/family I have visited Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, California, Florida, Nevada, the Four Corners, and more.
Yellowstone, The Grand Canyon, Disneyland and World, San Fransisco, Mr. Stain Helens and Rainier, Ocean Shores, Portland.
I have traveled to Europe twice. With my mom and Aunt: Liverpool and London England, Dublin, Ireland, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland. With my choir I visited Rodez and Paris, France. The Cliffs of Moher, the Scotish Highlands, Loch Ness, the Earth Exhibit. The Eifel Tower.
Abbey Road, Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, Eleanor Rigby’s grave, where John, Paul, George, and Ringo grew up.
Been able to grow up swimming in quaries, camping in the woods, traveling the world and learning compasion. Grew up in one of the most intensive and talented theater groups on the west coast: Capital Playhouse. With them I developed my pasion for singing and performed musicals for 10 years of my life. With them I was able to stay with host families in France.
I was part of Teen Council, a group of Sophomores-Seniors in High School who went around to different middle and high schools and taught about sex, sex education, STI’s, HIV/AIDS, depression, and bullying. I spread useful knowledge to kids who were part of school systems too poor or unwilling to teach important facts to the people who need it most.
I moved out when I was 19 and was able to finish two and a half years of school and work full time. I provided for myself and grew up and had an amazing time maturing in my home town. A couple months afer my 22nd birthday I decided it was time for my next adventure. I was fortunate to find an amazing friend willing to house me for a few months, and moved almost 3,000 miles across the country to live on the east coast.
Since living in NJ I have traveled to Las Vegas for Electric Daisy Carnival, Maryland for Nightmare Fest, DC, New York, Philidelphia, and (through) Delaware! I have had some amazing adventures and met some incredible people.
I have proved myself way stronger than I thought I could be, and want to change my outlook on all the incredible things I have been able to do.
Time for a new leaf. Bring back the love. Bring back the life. I am so so lucky and I want to start appreciating that <3@4 weeks ago with 2 notes
