My 17th Birthday!

Today is my birthday and I'm officially seventeen years old! I think it is so weird that I'm already seventeen, because my sixteenth birthday really doesn't seem like it was that long ago. And now here I am a year later. To most people, seventeen probably doesn't sound that important, but to me it really means a lot (more than being old enough to donate blood). I only have one more year of being a real kid, and so I really have to make the best of it! Its my Senior year and I'm going to make sure I have fun and be happy, even though I will still have to worry about other stuff, like going to college and figuring out a career and other stuff like that. I thought I would write down some goals I have for the next year:
  • Have fun!!!!
  • Get accepted to my dream college
  • Continue working on getting my associate's degree
  • Graduate from high school
  • Be amazing at being myself :)
Now I just wanted to post some pictures of things I have done over my days of being sixteen... (and it helps me get caught up on everything I haven't posted).
