College Saved Me

It’s hard to believe almost exactly three years ago, I created this blog. As I sat in my bed signing up for this Blogger account; I had absolutely no idea what to expect, how to properly articulate my thoughts, the amount of guys I was going to connect with or how much help and advice I was going to receive. Needless to say, making this blog is one of the most beneficial things I have done for myself. It's a gift that I gave to myself. The ultimate gift that keeps on giving.

Whether my posts were serious, shallow, funny, sad or just straight up ridiculous...all of them possessed meaning at that moment in time. I remember pouring my heart out into some of these posts, while the tears were pouring down my face. Yet, the unbelievable amount of love and acceptance I receive from you guys lifted my spirits so much, regardless of how silly I felt sharing them.
I look back on college without a single regret. It was the most profound four years of my life. I partied, experienced Greek Life, survived the dorms, met the most amazing people, found my faith, met guys, found my passion for art, sought counseling, discovered yoga, beat depression, went Pescatarian, came out of the closet and learned so much about myself. It's amazing how much someone can mature and grow in a couple of years.
Whether you’ve been following my journey since day one, or just recently stumbled upon my blog; I can’t even express in words, just how thankful I am for all of your love and guidance. The fact that you take the time out of your day to read and  comment on my posts is truly touching and appreciated. 

Thank you.
I’m ready to launch my career as an artist and surround myself with the people and activites that bring me happiness! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!
Much love guys!
