Why We're Here

I have three days left of school.

It has been quite a journey! I can still remember my first day in high school. I stepped into the large halls filled with people I'd never met before, brimming with anticipation and anxiety, peering around at the kids that would one day come to be my friends. I didn't know what these next four years would hold for me. You could probably say that I went in blindly but willingly. Now that everything is starting to wind down, I've been experiencing quite a lot of self-reflection after going through so much.

I have many great stories that have come from my friends and family, but it would be a lie to tell you that everything has been easy. Everyone goes through rough patches; I admit that I just got out of a very terrible one. This isn't the post to talk about the turbulence I experienced this last month, but all of that hardship taught me lessons. Lessons about people, lessons about myself, and lessons about life. These lessons inspired me to contact North and Scooby about a new project: this blog.

Even though my heart had felt crushed, I've found a reason to smile. I realized that happiness is a matter of perspective, how you see the world. North and Scooby agree with me, and that's why we want to share this with you.

So this blog is dedicated to you, whether you're going through good times or bad. It'll be a compilation of advice, stories, pictures, and quotes that will help you find yourself, help you find a reason to smile no matter what is going on in life, no matter how dark it may seem.

Here is the first quotation out of many:

-Chad Sugg
Take care,
