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 expressing 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 life journey with you all. From slowly grieving the end of my life chapter as a gymnast, to rebuilding my identity, discovering a new passion in Latin ballroom dancing, starting school at UCLA, grappling with career decisions, coping with bipolar disorder, and ultimately graduating from UCLA 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 adult-in-training, I am currently building a new blog called “The Post-Grad Vagabond”. 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.
