Well, I was still in high school a decade ago, so there are a lot of big changes I could mention. I think the most significant is the relationship between my career and my personal life. When I was still preparing for college, I had major aspirations for becoming a professional musician. These were somewhat realistic goals as I did attend music school, but after doing a small tour with a band I realized that I didn’t want to perform for a living.
After a bit of soul-searching I found myself living in Iceland (I’m from the States), and met many wonderful people who taught me that my passion and my job didn’t necessarily have to be one in the same. Since moving back, I’ve been much better at finding joy in my work and in my free time, rather than giving myself none of the latter.
