This year is my senior year in high school, and I’m not a happy girl. I’m painfully insecure and unsocial (I mean sits in the bathroom at lunch unsocial), I’m totally pessimistic, and I’m just not motivated to do anything with myself. Life just isn’t fun for me. So, when a New York trip with my school’s band was waved in my face, of course I jumped at the opportunity. New York, to me, stands for change. Beauty, poetry, innovation, a new start. And perspective, which I so desperately need. I basically adore everything New York stands for, so naturally I’m really really reallyexcited for this trip.

17 days and counting!
