2018 was a very eventful year. Some days were amazing, and some days were awful. So much changed and sometimes I felt like I couldn’t keep up. I had to grow up a lot, more than I was expecting. But it was all for the best, and in 2019 I hope for a bit more stability.
I started my job at White Magnolia, where you can still drop in and see me occasionally. 😉 It’s the longest I’ve ever held down a job (1 year!)
I was in a fashion show! (Excuse the red eyes lol) And I ate a lot of Valentine’s chocolate. I met my friend Natalie for the first time! And my blog started gaining momentum, as I networked more and worked with brands.
My senioritis started kicking in (bad) and I jetted off to sunny Florida.
I graduated, enrolled at LCC, and sprained my ankle (again). I also met my friend Paige!
I basically just worked my tail off and went to the Kusama exhibit with Angela. And did some belly dancing.
I started my job at Passport to Peru, started college, visited Kent a few times, and started seeing a therapist.
I worked, spent some time at the art museum, went on a lot of fun adventures in Chagrin, and decided to transfer.
I re-applied to Kent, quit my job at Passport, went to NYC, went to Columbus, started working at a yoga studio, got a dramatic haircut, and celebrated Halloween.
I started getting really, really excited to come to Kent. I left my job at the yoga studio and found a new place to live.
Like I said…a lot went down.
I am thankful for all the wonderful people I spent time with. The ones who were there for me during the hardest times. I am grateful for my travels and experiences. I am thrilled to have been given endless chances to start again.
So as the New Year rolls around, I’m not wishing for a chance to start over. I got that chance every day this year, and I became a completely different person. So if 2019 wants to throw all my shit at the fan, let it. 2018 taught me to roll with the punches.
I wish you all health and happiness in the New Year.
