Quarter Life Crisis

Twenty-years old and the world is your playground. You're too young to know what you want in life. You've got so much more time ahead of you. Do it while you're young.

Alright, so I guess twenty hasn't exactly been my "golden" age. I've gone to college at a big university, I've chopped my hair completely off. Gotten a tattoo I have found myself regretting more and more. I've been in a couple more situations that are very significant, but I will not go into detail. Oh! How could I forget, I have dropped everything in my life and joined the military. 

I could sit here and tell you how much I have regretted and strongly disliked every one of the events listed above, but the truth is- crazily enough- I wouldn't trade any of those experiences for the world. I have seen the lowest of times and I have had the proudest moments that I will always remember. If it wasn't for the darkness in life, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference of when something is truly amazing. Everything I have seen, felt, the people I have met, the parts of the US I have seen- they all have helped me in the journey of figuring out my twenty year old self. Finding out who I am and want to be.

 Okay, I'll admit, the experiences I have had have definitely broadened my perspective and added very significant moments in my life and character...however, I am still 100% completely lost. I have gone through so many changes within the last 2 years, trying to figure out which roads to take and trying to get a taste of it all. Things are still changing. Things will continue to change. It's not about figuring myself out right now. They're right, I still have time. I would just like to find a little bit of ground to put under my feet, just so that I can finally start my journey. I have been searching. I have been opening many doors that have led me to an empty room and sometimes a maze. I just haven't found my room yet, and I think that's completely okay.

Here are just a few pictures from Prescott this weekend. Fall is definitely here, and I hope it's here to stay awhile! ;)
