What's different? What were you like/up to in 2009, and how does it compare to the present state of things? Let's try to focus on the positive! In 2009 I was in my second year at my local college. I was alternating between stressing to the point of a breakdown, and giving no fucks about anything; including whether I got enough to eat, did well in my courses, got sick, slept enough, nothing. It was a tough time. Also because of these moods I was deep in my hating the world phase - again. I'd broken out of that shell long enough to make a couple friends, only to become their errand girl and the butt of their jokes. High school all over again. I had my same car, it only played cassettes, had no interior light, and already had some battle scars. Skip to 2014! I'm older, wiser, know how to pick my friends and while I've never been hugely social, I have a handful of people that I can safely call my best friends, and those relationships work on equality and respect. I even landed a boyfriend! Scotty and I have been dating and living together for about four years now, were preparing to start universities in 2015, and while we're nervous about the stress of distance, were both super excited to begin this new chapter of our lives.
