~I am pretty insignificant but I still made a page~

Hit me up on Instagram and Facebook!!

lil sister of this weirdo, thank you for showing me how amazing this place is and for encouraging me to figure it out on my own. every answer you didn't give me allowed me to go on an adventure to find a something i didn't know i needed.

I formatted this weird,I made it at like 2am on a PCTYD kick so here goes nothing:

     -if a person randomly offered you healthy snacks in a very maternal fashion it was probably me
     -if you heard a ukulele semi out of tune or broadway karaoke offkey that was definetly (regrettably me)
     -if you heard a shower start between the hours of 9pm and 3am that was me, it was my favorite cty hack of all time 

CTY Years

Bristol 16.1 Heroes and Villains (Baby CTY)

{Oh MyGosh was I an insuferable person. I sincerely apologize if I was a butthead to you guys.}

Easton 17.1 UNAG (Baby CTY)

{I actually learned something but still would not have wanted to know me back then.}

Lancaster 18.1 Logic A, Emma's Hall, KIRBY SquirrelSquirrelSquirrelSquirrelSquirrel

{Came to LAN because my brother went and he was the Jester so I thought I would give it a try at LAN. Was a very squirrely squirrel. But in a very intermittent fashion because I basically memorized realcty information but did absolutely nothing with it.I did not go to a single AI (sincerely regretted it) but I tried my best and realized that I could in fact socialize with people and be myself at LAN. Realized there was a big difference between being knowledgable about something and truly knowing it. Big thanks to Sophia Ribiero I love you with my whole heart.}

takeaway: the worst you can do is embarrass yourself in front of probably the most accepting people you will ever meet. not to sound commercialized but, Just Do It!

Lancaster 19.1 Cog Psych, Aysiah's Hall, NOODLE POODLE FOR LIFE

{I started to turn into a real person but still had some growing up to do. Figured out that I had to pave my own way and live my own life. Be yourself kids cause no one else will. Danced my heart out and went to AI and realized that everyone feels squirrely sometimes. This was the year of the Squirrels so I adopted a huge amount of my hall and like I said NOODLE POODLES FOR LIFE. Basically became the designated mom friend cause I always had the healthy but still for some reason good snacks. Went to Passionfruit for the first time which really gave me some perspective. GO TO PASSIONFRUIT!!! Went home crying and ready to live my best CTY life the following year}

Lancaster 20.1 Philosophy** (CORONA SAYS WHAT?)

{Didn't get to go back home for my 21 day visit to heaven. Joined the CTY discord and did some more growing up. Realized that I was now a onemore and for some reason that makes me feel very old. I love this place with all of my heart and I love all of you. I hope the tour never does end. It feels weird to not be at home right now but I will push through.}

some words

wow. its kinda hard to truly fathom i'm never going back and that i am now lost in space along with might have been these past two years. the tour did end and sadly for me it ended much earlier than was my truest intent. for all those reading though i don't really understand how you got here please keep this alive. if not for you then keep it alive for the kids who find a life they might not have known they could lead, for the ones who no longer have to hide in the back of classrooms thinking they are weird for loving to accumulate all the knowledge they can and for the ones who long for friendships with weirdos just like them. I was that kid and so were many of us on here. I learned there was more to being smart than being able to spit out facts and that knowledge is a gift meant to be shared with everyone who wants to accept it from you. always refuse to yield in your life, maintain your excellance against all odds and push through, the other side always exists you just have to stay alive long enough to find it.

how utterly lucky am i to have had something that makes me feel so strongly about saying farewell even though i never really got to kiss it goodbye. as i climb the stairway to heaven i remember every nerd weirdo and odd person who i had the pleasure of getting to know in my years at CTY and i will fight the urge to scream the callbacks anytime i hear someone play american pie. with a final reference: i don't want the world to see me cause i don't think that they'd understand, but when everything's made to be broken, i just want you to know who i am. thank you for knowing who i am cty and thank you for showing me that its okay to be that person despite what i had been pushed to believe.
