self discovery

So. I'm not a blogger but I thought it was about time I leave Facebook and Pinterest and direct my thoughts and time elsewhere. My name is Hunter ( I am a female!) and I just finished my first year of college. I can't quite explain this year in words- it was difficult yet amazing. I met some great people and socialized but I also found out a lot about myself. There is much need for solitude, especially these days and in this media driven world. I was fortunate enough, as weird as that seems to say, to have enough time alone these past few months to reflect on my dreams and desires and truly begin my path to self discovery.

I think I will always be confused about life and my future but there is joy in not knowing what's ahead. A year ago I thought that I would just go to college and then quickly get my BA degree and move on to my next degree. Things have changed. I began my first year of college with the desire to work hard and get straight A's. That certainly did not happen and I felt pretty inadequate. 

As Dr. Seuss said “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You"  what I had to figure out was that maybe being me wasn't going to be the kid who gets straight A's or finishes their PhD by the time they're 30- (I really thought that would happen, hah!). Maybe being me would be something completely different. 

I've been reflecting on my life and what is most important to me.

Those are the things that I want to focus on in my blog and hopefully share my experiences and youthful insights.
