Hello everyone. I am back, it has been a hot minute since I have posted but I have a lot of high hopes for this year. 2016 had a lots of highs and lows. If you want to hear about them, keep on reading.
I went into 2016 at my sickest with POTS. That is the one thing I truly struggled with the whole year (& still am) I could hardly get out of my bed (which can make pots worse) from January until about May. That was a lot of time wasted doing nothing, but I learned a lot from it. I transitioned from public school, to at home tutoring, to now online school. I spent as much time as I could with my friends during the summer. We had a lot of sleepovers and ice-cream dates. At the end of summer, I went on the best vacation I’ve ever been on, which I’ve wrote about. It made me closer with my family, which was needed. My oldest sister went away for college and that was hard on the whole family. It was the first time we had to go months without seeing each other. I am very proud of her for going through with it, getting a education, leaving her loved ones, and starting new adventures doing what she loves. I started online schooling in September which was new. I miss actually going to a public school for the experiences (or maybe just the t-shirts you got). With doing online school I’ve been able to manage my health, prioritize my time, and discover new interest.
Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a doctor but with this election year (which was crazy) i’ve realized I have an interest in politics and law. Will I end up going into law instead of medicine? We will see! I ended the year, happier then I’ve been in a long time. I got to see all my family and friends for the holidays and we had a fun New Year’s Eve party to end the year. 🥂 2016 I struggled with depression, still am but I am thankful that it is getting better. I am determined to make 2017 one of the best years of my life yet. I hope this year treats you all well.
Lots of love -andi
New Year’s Eve party 🥂
