I wish summer wouldn't end, but also that it would.
This picture was taken outside of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. This summer has been amazing, but also very educational. I've gone on a few different vacations, and I've gotten to spend a lot of time with my family. I also got some experience working in a hospital as a patient transporter, but all of that is besides the point. This summer meant more to me than most people realize. My first year of college had many ups and downs. I struggled a lot personally. My first semester started off pretty horrible, but ended okay. My second semester started out great, but ended badly. My grades were surprisingly pretty average considering what I was going through at the time. I'd like to do better, and I plan to this year. I spent this summer focusing on myself, trying to learn how to be truly happy again. I took this time to understand and love who I am. I also had to learn to respect myself. I had to forgive myself for the mistakes I made in the past, and also forgive those who have hurt me to truly heal. I found that doing things that I love and that bring me true joy made me understand more of who I am. I just moved into my new apartment at school. Now I just have to wait a couple days for classes to begin. I'm hoping that all of the reflecting and healing I did over the summer continues through this year. I can't wait to see what my sophomore year of college holds.

I wish life was as peaceful as it is intricate, like this tree.
This picture was taken outside of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. It is absolutely beautiful there, and I would go back in a heartbeat. This tree sits peacefully on a porch looking out towards the gardens of the estate. While peaceful, it is intricate in the ways the vines wrap around the trunk in all different directions. Our lives tend to lead us towards many different paths causing us to get lost in ciaos and stress. I've recently been able to take a step back and get some perspective on my own life. No, it is most definitely not peaceful. It is very intricate, but I have come to a point where I am very happy with who I am. It is good to do things that make you happy, like taking this picture was for me. I had forgotten the amount of joy I feel when I capture something so breathtaking, even if it is only in my eyes. I don't know if anyone actually reads these posts, but if you are, do something today that makes you happy.

I wish summer would go by faster.
This was taken of the ceiling right when you walk into the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. I just got home from a vacation in Bryson City, NC. I loved it there. I would love to move there one day. It is absolutely gorgeous. I am home for the summer, and while I love being home, I just want to move back to school and start working on classes. I feel like I'm not doing anything really productive at home. I am supposed to be working, but for some reason my job I had lined up isn't really working out at the moment. I have no idea when I will be able to start my new job. Just thought I should post something since I was able to get some pictures taken on this vacation. Hope to post soon.

I wish I could go back to the Grand Cayman Islands.
This photo was taken while on a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico and the Grand Cayman Islands. I went on this cruise during my first semester of my senior year in high school. Got to miss 4 days of school on excused absences because it wasn't an ordinary cruise. I actually auditioned to go on this cruise. It was a modeling and acting competition called Passport to Discovery. It was an amazing experience, and I really wish I could go back again. I could if I wanted to, but my mom won't let me while I'm focusing on college. I met a lot of interesting and professional people in the industry, and received 9 callbacks from agents around the country, plus one from Tokyo. I only wish I could have kept up with it, but college is what is important to me right now, and I need to focus on that. Who knows what will happen in the future? I know I don't.

I wish I would have kept up with this blog.
It has been a very long time since I have visited this blog. I don't really know what made me decide to visit it today, but I'm glad I did. I think the last time I posted, I was a sophomore in high school. I am now a freshman in college, and I am loving it. A lot has happened in the past two years, and I know not many people, if any, actually look at my blog. I am probably writing to no one, but I'm doing this more for me than others. This picture was taken a few weeks ago in Lafayette, Louisiana. My friend Katherine and I decided to go exploring around the Lafayette area, and I decided to bring my camera out. I fall more and more in love with this city every day. Loving it here and hope to continue posting when I can.

I wish people could never get tired.
This is a picture of a fountain at my school. The reason I made the wish I made with this picture is because I am extremely tired at the moment. I'm always tired! If I never got tired, I'm sure I could get a lot more done than I do now. I'm probably the reason I'm always tired, so I can't really blame anyone or anything but myself. I could possibly blame swim practice, but technically I can't because it's still my fault for going. Well that is my rant for today! lol I'll try to post more soon! (:

I wish school was over already.
This is a picture of my cousin Abby from the beach this summer! So we have been in school for maybe 3 weeks and I am already tired of it. I'm doing a lot better than i thought I was going to. I'm not really enjoying chemistry or history. I hate history and I'm not very good at science, but I have really good teachers this year! I was so excited when I found out what teachers I had! I didn't get any of the really hard teachers. My friends are always complaining about their teachers and I'm bragging about mine. lol.
