I can’t believe I’m moving to Montreal. I don’t even speak French! It still doesn’t seem real to me. When I was a kid, dancing was something that I did for fun. I hadn’t even thought about getting back into it until I decided to help Patti out with her audition. To think that small decision led me to actually pursuing a career in dance is mind-boggling. I still can’t believe it’s actually happening.

This website helped me to figure out the world around me as well as figure out who I am inside and what kind of a person I want to be. Writing, doing stories, interviewing people and helping others has helped to shape the kind of person that I am today. It’s made me realize that there’s nothing as important as family and the support of friends.

Then there’s Jack. Jack has been such a big part of my life for so long. Moving to Montreal has finally made it real that he and I aren’t going to be together. It’s weird but I think I always had it in the back of my mind that we’d end up together eventually. I know we’ll always care for each other, probably even always love each other. We’ve been so close for so long that the thought of being somewhere without him scares the hell out of me.

I couldn’t ask for a better high school experience. I’ve made some incredible friends, I’ve won some impossible battles and I’m a better person because of every experience I went through at West Central High. I only hope that I can take some of that knowledge with me as I start a new chapter of my life; that I’ll carry a small piece of renegade with me in my heat no matter where I am or what I’m doing.

Love to you all,
