But most importantly, Home isn't just these things and this place. It's what's in your head and heart, a feeling. Home is where you feel like you're truly happy and you can grow and do what you want to do. And this place and town have changed me as a person. When I look back to where things were a year ago, I have grown so much. More independent, more creative, less shy, braver, more kind and loving, I have a job, I go to the school I wanted to and which allows me to express myself, I have completely different hair (yes today it's a grey longbob), I have so many people around me I love. I'm so thankful to my Mom and Dad who support me and allow me to do what I love. I just sit here listening to Tom Odell, thankful for the people in my life and all the experiences I've been through.
Unbelievable how a year can change so many things and make a person feel like Home.
