" Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the thing that you didn't do than by the ones you did. so throw off the bowlines sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail, Explore. Dream. Discover." —Mark Twain

Transit from Beacon to Yonkers

Sitting under the boom you wonder where life is going to take you. A year from today, I will be a high school graduate. So as I sit and wonder what will I achieve in my best/ last year in high school. What kind of memories do I want to create, and last, but not least, what kind of people do I want to have in my life?

Sitting in Alpine, NJ, looking past the George Washington Bridge onto the city gives me chills. With the moon at its fullest, the tides at its strongest, the current is still strangely at ease. It's crazy how something that appears so small to us from Earth can have such an environmental impact. You start seeing everything for the better. I know that this experience on Clearwater has changed me and will hold a spot in my heart.
