Well 2020 has most certainly been a rollercoaster of events for people worldwide. As a late 90s kid, I can't say I've lived through anything quite as shocking. We remember 9/11 of course, but I was so young (and not in America yet), that I can't really use this event as that triggering and traumatic point in my life. So many families were shaken that day and so many lives were lost. It was enough to change things drastically, and I feel that with this virus, more will change. Alot of things were put into perspective for me recently. I was disappointed by the people around me, people who I thought were professional and trustworthy, but who, in fact, did not hesitate to ignore the hardship around us and add on to my plate of worries.
I've been happy but quite lonely in Orlando. Orlando has been my dream city and I remember begging and wanting to go to Disneyworld, or take a trip down to Miami so bad growing up and never having had the chance or the financial ability. Being here blessed me immeasurably more than I could have hoped or imagined. Not only did I get to live in an amazing city, in the beautiful sunshine state (that really needs to finish its I4 construction), but I was able to go to Disney quite often after obtaining my annual pass and truly live my childhood dream. I got to explore, to feel, know, and experience what being alone means and what working to fix the problems you find yourself in, without the help of anyone else, is truly like. I had my first car accident here, my first hospitaliation, my first fears over what and how I'll handle work, school, and the expectations of faculty members. Alot happened, huh? I won't go into the details, but no, being here was not some vacation. It was work. Being alone shapes you as a person. Working to take care of yourself, never really asking for anyone's help (but also being surrounded by people who never offer help), well...that does change a person.
Although I've been happy here, I feel that God knows what's best for me. With a heavy heart I'll have to part at the end of May with Florida. I'll be moving back to Texas, specifically to Huntsville, TX and transferring to Sam Houston State University where I feel that I'll truly be able to become a better musician, while also having the family, the friends, and those I love alot closer. I have only peace of mind and hope for what lies ahead, and I know that even though this move is not something I wanted, it is needed.
I'm excited to keep making videos and hope you will enjoy watching my growth. Thanks for stopping by!
