Despite having some really hard things to deal with come my way the last year or so, I’m actually in a good place with myself. I like who I am as a person, I am happy with personality, and generally overall content with where I am in my life. Is this what finally accepting being an adult feels like? I do still feel like a kid, and never plan to give up my youthfulness or zany personality. But I do feel like I have grown up a lot and becoming more accepting of myself is a part of that process.

It feels really good to be happy with who I am. Proud to be a geek, a nerd, a weirdo, that oddball chick. I like me.
