Hi Steven, my name is Ryan, and I'm pretty much brand new to Hubski.
I enjoy music, but I haven't made any for years. I also love art, but I'm not a good artist. People tell me I'm a decent writer, but I've never really believed them. I love to create things, but I don't like to think about other people's opinions on them, since I'm not confident in my creations. I enjoy the process, though, so I do it for myself.
I'm a senior in high school, and I feel like my path in life is only starting to emerge. I'm in the IB, which is a rigorous international education program that allows me to take college-level courses in high school. I love learning, but the stress from it may kill me. Sometimes it makes me hate my life, but I've already come this far, so I refuse to give up on it now--even if it would benefit my mental health.
I'm applying to a college close to me, since it's where I can afford to go, and I'm hoping I get into a Computer Science program. I've always like computers, and maybe creating code could be a form of creativity?
Life is in a flux state for me right now, since there are a ton of directions I could see myself going, but I don't know how to decide on which one I want to pursue. It's a conundrum I'm sure everyone has faced--what if I make the wrong decision? If I get higher education, what happens if I get into major debt and end up hating what I do?
Anyways, I don't know if that tells you much about me, but that's my life right now.
