My 21st Bday/ 2017 Reflection

4thJan 4, 2018 by SmoothStalker12
Hi TG, as you may know from Oliviaxoxo's lovely blog, yesterday was my 21st birthday! First off I wanna say thank you to everyone who participated and everyone who has sent individual messages, i appreciate all the love :) Also thank you so much for putting the blog together despite your crazy busy life Liv :)

I wanted to make a blog about 2017 not to brag about my life but because I think it was a journey that others can learn from. You'll see why.

2017 started out being a horrible year for me. I had a sinus infection on New Years Day and my birthday, and then got the stomach flu from work. On January 17th, I got into a car accident that honestly could have ended my life. (I was T boned by another driver right behind my driver's seat, my car was totaled and I was so shook). 4 days after the accident, I was shipped off to Europe where I wouldn't see my family for over 4 months, making me extremely nervous. All in all, it is fair to say my life wasn't the best.

My months abroad was absolutely the best time of my life, but you can read the specifics in the several blogs I made about it. I entered the trip a shy boy who knew like 4 of the 33 other students from my uni. By the end of the trip I had went to 12 countries, planned out weeks of travels, organized and hosted a 2 hour award show and made over 30 life long friends.

The summer I worked as a camp counselor and had an amazing time helping kids enjoy their summers! My coworkers became a new family for me as well and we all talk just about daily to this day, despite me being the only guy (what a ladies man, yes i am single!!!) Although it was stressful training and setting an example for the new employees, I don't regret a single day working at my camp.

This past semester was full of great memories with my many new friends. However, I was faced with an issue of romance conflict, which is rare for me. My best friend honestly saved me from a very toxic, potential, relationship. This girl and I got along so well in London and during the semester but she was very controlling of others and me, and would often just be rude knowing I wouldn't say anything back. I am very thankful my best friend recognized what was happening and helped me get back to reality, although I am still close friends with the controlling girl. IDK why I felt like including this, it's irrelevant but also was an obstacle I had to fix in order to succeed academically and socially! yolo kids

Lastly, I went on a religious retreat which really opened up my eyes and kinda does a full circle to the beginning of my year. Life is a gift and it can end at any moment. You shouldn't waste time with people who don't appreciate you for you. Everyone deserves to live life to the fullest and surround themselves with the people who show you the love you deserve. This past year I have learned a lot about myself and I honestly can say I've never been in a better place mentally and socially. I'm not saying you need to study abroad to enjoy life, but you need to get out of your comfort zone and make the effort to meet people. Everyone has a lot to offer you in life but you won't learn about their gift unless you make the initial leap of confidence!!!

That being said, I want to tag many of the friends I met on Tengaged in 2017 and appreciate what they've done for me :) I know i'll forget a ton of people from the summer but recency bias is getting the best of me tonight
