A Year On My Own


It’s been just a little over a year since I moved out of my parents’ house and into my own apartment.

I’ve learned so much, yet I still have so much to learn.

Going from a household of seven people to a place where it’s been just me, myself, and I has been quite a shift. Even today, it still feels weird not having constant noise surround me 24/7.

However, there have been way more pros than cons. I’ve learned a few tricks in the kitchen, budgeting tricks and hacks, and more important, have the time to ponder and really figure out what I want to do in my life (which has involved sometimes staying up late at night fiddling around with code and design). #designerProblems

Overall, this is only 1 year out of many more to come. The future scares and excites me simultaneously. However, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Year 2.

And since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, may the luck of the Irish be on my side.
