This is my senior year of high school, and I keep thinking wow if only I had more time.

The truth is, the future scares me a lot, but staying in the same place might scare me even more. I love my home and my family and friends, but I'm ready for something new.

This year has already been so different from my last 17 years of life, and it's only going to get more strange & wild from here on out.

I'm a dancer, and every day in the studio, I'll see these younger students who just have so much time. They have time to improve, time to make friends, time to lose friends, time to change schools, time for anything.

and they don't even realize it.

And here i am thinking this. is. it. What I have is exactly what I'll take into my future. this is it. I don't have time to improve in dance, I only have my 12 years of training until now. I don't have time to make strong friendships, because I'm getting ready to leave. I only have the friends I've made so far. I don't have time.

And all of this makes me think to look at what do have. I have been a dancer all this time, I have had friends all this time, and even though I don't have much time for new, I can take what I have.

And I have a lot.
