It is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to this blog of five-and-a-half years.
I started “Teenage Struggles” in November of 2014, when I was a junior in high school. What began as a personal means of coping with grief over a career-ending injury transformed into something greater– a public documentation of one of the most formative periods of my life. It has been my greatest joy and privilege to have shared my high school and college journey with you all. From exiting my life chapter as a competitive gymnast, to rebuilding my identity and discovering a new passion in Latin ballroom dancing, starting school at UCLA, grappling with career decisions, coping with mental health challenges, and ultimately graduating college with a degree in psychology, it’s been a wild roller-coaster ride, but I would not have had it any other way. All chapters of life must come to an end, and as a 22 year-old college graduate, I am ready to embark on the next phase of life: young adulthood.
But. This is not goodbye forever. If you haven’t grown bored of me yet and are still interested in following my journey, this time as an young adult, I am currently working on a new blog! So stay tuned for the launch date!
I love you all, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your loyalty and support all these years.
