I have been lucky enough to have formed a friend group that has stood the test of time. Many of my closest friends I have known since I was 4 years old. They are still the people that I trust the most and who I go to in times of need. I wanted to write a story about how our friendships have evolved over time and grew as we became older.
Music has been an overarching theme in my life since I could form memories. My parents made sure to instill a musical comprehension in me that I could carry throughout my life. Because of this I have become a vinyl record collector and known amongst my friends as the designated DJ(not by choice). I wanted to write a story of how I developed my passion for music and how certain music has affected me through my personal development.
I have had a difficult time throughout my college career finding a degree that I want to finish. I attended Southern Methodist University for 5 years pursuing an economics degree before I decided to return home and transfer to KSU to find a new path. After focusing on Finance for a few semesters I finally ended up in the Integrative Studies major and feel happy with my decision. This story would go into further detail on outside influences and personal issues that caused this journey through college.
Since my junior year of high school, I have been affected by a condition called dysthymia which is a form of depression. It is a persistent depressive disorder that is long-term and factors into my life daily. The story I would be telling is my experience with this condition and how it has affected my life.
My passion for video games has been rabid since my friends first introduced me to games when I was 7 years old. My parents didn’t see the value in video games when I was young and wouldn’t allow me to have a console of my own. I found a loophole by asking my grandparents for a Gamecube for Christmas one year, and I haven’t looked back. I wanted to write a story that demonstrated the effect video games have had on my life and how they have helped me through certain difficult times.
