{ Welcome Senior Year }

Today I kicked off my last first day of school. Technically. The second and last year of the IB is about to eat me up but man was it nice to see everyone at school today! With EE deadlines and HL history exams already creeping up on me, I have definitely realized that summer is over. Touch down to reality and to the toughest year of my young life so far. Bring it on.

{ Serotonin }

I am back home for the first time all summer. By back home I mean I have returned from the wonders of the world to stay and touchdown to reality. Since I have been completely gone virtually all summer I guess it's time to spill the beans.

This summer has changed everything. Never have I experienced so much in such a short period of time. Travels have taken me to amazing places, beautiful people, and showed  me experiences that I had only dreamed of before. I have deserved this.

We are afraid of change and how we’ll cope with the effects it has on our lives. What we don’t understand is that we live a vivid, volatile existence, eternally capable of change.

Turning tables, night to day, summer to autumn, we have to accept change and make the best of it.
This change has been frightening but full of good.

What we don’t realise is that we are standing within a pool of infinite possibilites and opportunities. The change is in your hands, right around the corner, in your next step and sacrifice.

I've learnt to be myself in a whole new way - to feel comfortable in my own skin and to take more chances.
And this new-found courage is exactly what I'll need next year.

I escaped and having adventured, it feels good to return.
Now it's time to leave this adventure behind and jump into a new one.

I'll be back soon with a less serious tone- I hope you enjoyed the products of a spontaneous au naturel photo shoot Anna and I had yesterday in the country.
