A reflection of the project so far

Hello faithful reader! It's been a glorious few months for me, and now here has come that point in life known as reflection. While the project had a bit of a rough start for me, I'm happy to say that I have succeeded in my own eyes. I'm not finished with the book as of right now, but I have learned a multitude of life lessons while I've been writing this story. I'm going to continue to write the story even when 20 time has officially ended.Some of the lessons I've learned along the way I'm going to taking along with me for the rest of my life.
For a little bit of background on my story, it's centered around a guy named Hanz. Hanz is now over 100 years old and has been preserving his life through the use of his own technology. He has nearly replaced all of his organs with metal ones, and is running out of time. However, he never really lived his life. He went through it alone, antisocial, and without friends. He never attempted to reach out to people, and now with his last few days upon him he realizes just how badly he wants to go back and change his life. He builds a machine that allows him to do that, and he goes back in time and lives the life he has always wanted to live.
The main thing that I'm taking away from this project is to live life, because as I'm writing all these instances in which Hanz never does live his I realize just how lonely someone could be in this world. He goes through his life again so afraid to stand out and act like himself. He cares way too much what people think about him, which is probably going to be my biggest take away from this project. I'm not going to let these moments in life slip past me anymore, which is why I'm considering this project a major success for me.
