This year was frightening
The prospect of
Me, going to college
What a change, right?
Me, who could barely wake up before 11
Me, who eats a Hot Pocket and cereal at noon
Is becoming an adult.
This year, I learned so many things
a variety of topics, ranging from
Just how many new friends I could make
Making music off a data interface
And how to get over having a penis in your face
I learned just how many Americans will vote for a bully
How late I can stay up
(and sleep in)
and I have seen people
Wonderful, gorgeous, insanely talented people
Shaping their futures by the incredible work that they do every day
Because they are passionate about it.
And me? With the OCD, the insecurities, and yet, the triumphant success
Only hopes to create more triumphant success
Because that was then
And this is now.
