1.5K Followers at 15, All Thanks to You Guys! 🎉🎉🎉

Guess who’s jumping?

“Thank You” written on a door of a garage.

It’d be nice to say, “I can’t believe this!” or “OMG I don’t know how this happened!?” but what else can I say if that’s what I exactly want to.

So, thank you! Thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting. And thanks for all of your support. All of you have been absolutely amazing!

You know, this article is totally unplanned. And why am I saying that?

Well, something interesting (and random) just hit me.

“I’m 15. And it’s been 1.5K.” Not quite same, right? But similar? Um-hm! A bit.

Oh, 15 is like the beginning and ongoing for so many different things for me. I just can’t believe—

So, yes, it’s been a great year. I discovered some real cool things and some not-so-awesome things as well this year.

But it was one hell of a ride. And a great teen year, too, to say the least.

I’m going to be 16 soon, and that’s making me ‘nostalgic and sad’ and ‘can’t-wait-to-see-what’s-around-the-corner and happy’ at the same time.

Teenage things, right? There’s simply so much going on.

I don’t want to stretch this article long and quickly want to thank some of you guys who I can remember at the moment. Nevertheless, I’m grateful to all 1.5K of you and can’t thank you enough.

Thanks for being there. It really matters a lot. Thanks also for hearing me and I hope my words never let you down.

Thanks to Dr. Preeti Singh, Sara Cansino, Sara Burdick, Bhavya Raj, Shruthi Rajaram, and Saanvi Thapar for reading my works. I get a lot of notifications of you guys. And that’s such a motivator.

Thanks Josh Balerite Acol for publishing my first ever article in any publication, and to Dr Mehmet Yildiz for accepting me into it. It was the start of something new for me.
