Leaving Home

I graduated school and I’m now off to College; I’m really excited because I’ll finally be able to start more school on the career I want to pursue, I get to be away from home, and I get to meet new people.  I’m a bit nervous though because I will actually have to be an adult, take care of myself, budget so I don’t go broke, stay safe so then I don’t get killed or anything, and I’ll be away from my family.  I’m generally a very nervous person so being by myself for a while away from the safety of my home will be nerve racking but I think if I either live at home and drive to classes or live with roommates I’ll be okay.  Even though I’m nervous; I’m also excited about all the opportunities I’ll be able to experience.  I think everything will turn out alright in the end and I just need to face it all head on with all the pros and cons.

My Hobbies

My three main hobbies are listening to music, drawing, and watching anime.

I enjoy drawing because I’m able to express how I’m feeling through drawings, I can let go of any stress, fears, and frustrations through drawing pictures.  drawing can be very time consuming so throughout drawing I enjoy watching anime.  I find anime fascinating because there is a wide variety of genres for it so there can be an anime out there for everyone, there is also a cultural difference so I can see a little bit into what Japanese culture is like.  When I’m not watching anime I’m listening to music, music brings me into a different world where I can just be and exist without any disturbances.
