2017 Sketchbook Page

Towards the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018, I began feeling lost. I had everything I wanted for so long. I was an ASB president at my school, I had a solid group of friends, I had a great school schedule, and I was taking AP studio art with most of my best friends. I had broken up with my boyfriend of almost 4 years before school started. I felt independent and empowered after we split, but then I started missing him, even though I knew that breaking up would be the best for him to grow his own wings. I had lost someone that somewhat defined me for so long and it left me feeling lost and lonely. At school, I’d go in and out of being my usual fun, energetic, and fun self and being introverted and sad. I started wearing headphones often because listening to music made me feel better than listening to my friends. It was such an uncomfortable time for me, but I totally embraced the discomfort and grew from it. I was able to look into the deepest parts of myself and create a clearer idea of who I wanted to be.
