I wrote that for a class for my freshman English class a mere four years ago. I think about how much I have changed in those four years. I have made leaps and bounds; sometimes I forget the simplicity that I had as a young to older teen because it gets lost in the waves of life. After reading this essay that I wrote when I was 19; for the past few days I have been thinking about what I am thankful for or at least reasons not to be depressed because there are people out there worse off than I am.
I’m very low on money—in fact, I’m having a money crisis. However, I am lucky to have two great jobs when so many are still left unemployed. Even with the bills, breaks are coming soon where I can work more and start saving again. I’m also lucky I have a roof over my head and a father that I love dearly. I’m also thankful for nan, she’s been there for me through everything and I have no idea what I’d do without her.
