“I've just been spending the year traveling around and getting to know myself”
I recently just got out of high school. Everybody wanted me to go to college. I had a difficult and interesting high school experience. I suffer a lot with mental illness so I was very much in and out of hospitals and different programs. I spent a long time in high school and decided I didn't want to do it anymore and it wasn't for me so while everyone was off going to college I decided to randomly just moved to California with like nothing. And so I did. I started working on a garden with these amazing, weird, crazy people and it has been the most amazing thing. I've done some traveling around the country and then I went to Guatemala and Mexico and Belize.
I've just been spending the year traveling around and getting to know myself and exploring.
I had a stuffed animal called Mousy. It was a giant mouse. It wasn't very clever and creative coming up with a name. I slept with it every night. It was a companion for my dreams.
