"I started all this because I thought I wanted something else… or to be somewhere else. But if nothing else, this year has made me re-examine who I am, who I want to be, and where I want to go. Among other things, I’ve learned how to let my passion and my reason coexist instead of letting one crush the other. I’ve learned how to go after what I want. I’ve learned how to stand up for myself. I’ve learned how to make myself happy. And in doing so, I’ve realized that I don’t need to change who I am. I am a reader, a tea drinker, a storyteller, a university graduate, a new apartment inhabitant, a teacher, a soon-to-be business owner, a cousin, a niece, a sister, a friend. I have a family now. They’re not perfect or conventional or even very easy to explain. And as long as I’m happy, I don’t need to explain. They’re mine and I love them. All of them. I’m proud of them and I’m proud of me. And the thing is, I don’t need to press record to start my day anymore, so thank you. Thank you for staying with me."
