❝And your heart's against my chest, your lips pressed to my neck. I'm falling for your eyes, but they don't know me yet and with a feeling I'll forget, I'm in love now ❞ — Kiss Me, Ed Sheeran.
Welcome to my corner of the world. Let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Arden Holbrook. Or simply Artie to the majority of you. I'm a sophomore currently attending Kingston Academy located in the ever-lovely London, England. I'm currently majoring in photography. One day soon, though, I'll invest some of my time in expanding my studies into music. While I can sing, I never really took instruments as a type of musical study that I'd want to look into, and as far as my history with them that opinion still reigns true, but I suppose it wouldn't be all that time-consuming. Besides, I have always wanted to learn the piano. As part of this little introductory description of myself to you complete strangers, I suppose I should mention a few personal details. Brilliant idea going against everything that your parents have told you over the course of your childhood about not giving out any personal information on the internet, hey? Regardless, I was born in Savannah, Georgia. Guess that makes me a Georgia peach right? Let's see, I'm the youngest of my family but I'm nothing like my older siblings. I like to spend the better part of my time reading or occasionally sketching on the ole' notepad. I am currently in the midst of trying to figure every detail of my life out. Enthralling, I know. Yes at twenty two years old, the most common thoughts fleeing through my brain consist of questionings for the future. I used to believe by the time I turned nineteen, I would have my life all figured out. I would know who I was, and who I wanted to become. To find a way to mesh those two people brilliantly as I got older, and it was going to be easy. Almost like riding a bike. As it turns out my expectations for the future didn't turn out the way I hoped they would be. It turned out to be the complete opposite of what actually happened. I’m not really sure if it goes for everyone, at nineteen years old, I haven't the slightest idea as to who I am, much less anything else for that matter. I don't know who I'm going to meet, or where I'm going to end up. I’m trying to live my life as it goes. Besides, college students are supposed to explore their options, find myself in this huge world, and that’s what I plan on doing. I don’t know how it’s going to go, but I've got nothing more than my promise to try. Succeeding is the hardest part.
