So I joined Lj 10 years ago, well roughly. I figured if I never updated, I wanted to update was as a 26 year old that I am now. A lot changed during these 10 years. I mostly matured and grew up, but I still retained part of the 16 year old that defined me. So, I am currently a social worker. I over came a lot of unfortunate events of my life and did it. My career has been fueled by my past and my compassion and empathy for others. I still am obsessed with Sylvia Plath and Tori Amos and that will NEVER change. I suppose, the journey of these 10 years into adulthood made me realize, the significance of my life comes from not what I am now, but how I got to this point in my life. I'm very fortunate and lucky to be alive. And, I'm grateful I've become the person that I always knew I could.
