    The change I am most proud of about myself is this year I have really made an effort to be healthier. I have become more conscious of what I eat and how much. I actually go out to exercise by taking my dog out on a walk and I am much happier with myself. I may not look different but I feel different and happier which I am proud of myself for.

    The change I am most proud of about myself this school year is how I’ve gotten better at drawing. I feel like I got more used to using drawing software and being able to utilize different tools. I used to not be able to draw with a mouse, but after some days of practice, I was able to draw decently well with a mouse. I’m still not very good at analog. I use my physical sketchbook only to draw out my ideas, so my next goal is to try to draw more on paper.

    The change I am most proud of this year is how much better I have become at adapting to change. With all the changes that had to be made this year, to education and everything else, we’ve all had to differ the way that we handle things one way or another. And yes, while it has been hard, I’ve almost completely gotten used to it. At the start of this, I couldn’t stop worrying about how much more difficult this was going to be, since we can’t learn things in school, but now that an entire quarter has passed, it has become just an every day normal. Of course, there is still tech issues and lag, but I have learned to live with that as well. I went from thinking this would be difficult, to knowing that it is honestly pretty easy. I am just overall happy that I was able to get used to this change quickly.

    This school year the change I am most proud about is being able to put homework first then procrastinating. I would always procrastinate and not do my homework until late at night or the day hours before it was due and so I wanted to change that. When my teachers assign me homework I always do it if they let us after they assign it or in Guidance class or just after school and I’m just proud to be on top with homework.
