So it has been just over a month since my departure from NY. If I could describe, in one word, what I have felt since my plane left that hot July morning is.....aticipation. Aticipation for the future. You see, I finally found a place where everything made sense, where the puzzle pieces FINALLY stuck together and where life had meaning. I was not confused about what to do next, about WHY everything happened, or where my life was going....I simply knew. Ever since that day my life has been replaced with a void...NOT a question mark (like usual) a void. At least now I know the answer to the many questions I use to ask myself...the answer is simply 'New York'. I use to spend endless nights sitting in my bed wide awake and dreaming, dreaming of where my life could go. But when I returned from the Big Apple, instead of spending long nights dreaming of what I could be, I close my eyes and dream of what I will be. I get to dream about the adventures in NY and what the future now holds for me. This summer has turned into the start of my life, I have truly decided what I want to do with my life and who I want to be. I have started a design portfolio, met a famous designer (who I truly respect as an artist), gained confidence in my own art, and started a job at an international clothing store. It is september 1 and even though I am not in school, or living in dorms, or even living somewhere half way acorss the world....I am still anticipating the future and ready to work my little tush off to get to where I want to be. I am so ready to succeed....I have lived my life in a shawdow...but not anymore. Simply I am ready to climb and struggle, push and shove and thrive on success and hardwork to the get myself to the top.
