Let’s all pretend I did not go a whole (wellllll not quite a whole year bc its been 364 days…) without blogging. Honestly, and I call myself a writer? I’M A DISGRACE! Ugh, I’m so so truly dearly utterly completely sorry. But do not fret! I have wonderful ideas and dreams for this blog in 2018! Been asking around and have gotten some great suggestions for content. What would you guys like to see? COMMENT! Definitely will add topics like fashion and college life (ew). Also I’m planning to blog twice a week this year (hopefully).
Now let’s talk a little bit about what I’ve been up to. 2017 was the year of MANY changes for me. How do I even summarize an entire year into one post?! I guess I’ll just give you the highlights, good and bad.
I graduated high school on May 21. It was beautiful. Prom, graduation, senior trip, and just everything that came with senior year was amazing. I loved every moment of it. I made new best friends and grew closer to old ones.
Summer 2017 was non-stop *cue Hamilton*. I joined a local musical theater group where I made some great friendships and had an awesome time. I also volunteered at a local VBS and choir camp. Gosh so many things. I spent some time in the keys…made a lot of good memories and inside jokes there HAaaaa. Most importantly, I grew in my walk with God over this summer like never before. I really felt like a renewed soul. It was exactly what I needed to go into college and prepare for such changes. Honestly, the summer of 2017 has been the best summer of my life.
Oh and a took a sporadic trip to NYC this fall with my parents and WOW. I saw the Starry Night and teared up (I’m obsessed with that painting). I also saw Hamilton…I SAW HAMILTON???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHH I still go crazy thinking about that.
Now on to fall…OH FALL. fall fall fall fall fall fall. What a change! I hated fall. Although, I can’t deny the MANY blessings that were in fall. College is just not my forte. I feel boxed up. No room for imagination. Every day is the same. No room for creativity. Maybe it’s worse for me because I was homeschooled. (I’m gonna blog about that transition specifically soon.) If I’m completely honest with you guys, I was so sad throughout last semester. I felt/feel like college is so selfish and gives me no purpose. It’s all about me and I always feel guilty. But, thankfully, I’ve been growing a lot and starting to just accept that this is the stage in life I’m in right now and just have to make the best of what I have! What good things happened? I got involved in student media! BEST DECISION! I had my first article published (and many more). It has been such a good experience and opportunity. This semester, I moved up to assistant director for the entertainment section. I’ll be editing a lot and in charge of a lot of writers and just more involved and it’s so exciting and fun and I’m really happy about it. In addition, I’m starting to be very veryyyyy thankful for scholarships and how blessed I’ve been in receiving them. Also, music. Just wow. Music has made my life and hard times 100000000x better. GOD BLESS MUSIC! And last but not least, GOD. He’s been present in my life and I honestly don’t know how I could’ve made it through last semester or any day without him.
Ok, enough about my life. Just letting ya know I’m not dead, this blog is not dead, and THIS YEAR IS GONNA BE WACHACHACHA AWESOME!
