Life changes

I have had a lot of major life changes happen to me recently like graduating high school, my twin sister going away to college, and making the decision to go to Community college in the winter to get my associate's degree.

I have had a lot of major life changes happen to me recently like graduating high school, my twin sister going away to College and making the decision to go to Community college in the winter to get my associates degree.

A big change has been my twin sister Allie going away to college. Becoming the only child at home has been a difficult transition for me because Allie had pushed me to do things on my own that I never thought that I could do. This will be the longest that Allie and I have ever been apart from each other which is hard. There are some benefits of Allie being away like I have to be a lot more independent and I have the opportunity to learn a lot more about myself.

Deciding to go to college to get an Associates Degree was a very difficult decision for me to make. I am not the best student and this is the first time that I will be going to school without someone with me at all times. I am really nervous but I am also really excited!
