It's 2018! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and happy New Year.
After last summer, I became crazy busy with school work, college applications, and modeling jobs which kept me from creating new blog posts. At the end of December, I had a journal filled with exciting ideas which never were completed. But, it's not 2017 anymore and because I have submitted all of my college applications I am a very happy girl! I will be dedicating much more time to the blog this year and I have some exciting posts lined up.
Wrapping up 2017 - it was an incredible year. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, and in the process, grew as a person. I met amazing people, traveled to breathtaking places, and, along the way, made some extraordinary memories.
For 2018, I have some really exciting plans. I have set a lot of goals for myself. Some of my 2018 goals are:
- Be present.
- Become fluent in the French language.
- Post more on the blog.
- Talk less, listen more.
- Create more content.
- Be appreciative and grateful.
- Use my new film camera (thanks mom<3).
At the beginning of this year, I decided to take a week and a half off of social media. I like taking time off of social media because it allows me to take a break from the digital world and truly focus on being present.
I have been home for over six months now (which is the longest continuous period I've been in North Carolina for the past 5 years). For the rest of this winter and spring, I plan to stay at home. It has been really nice to spend time at home and enjoy time with my family. I truly believe it's important to take a step back from the bustle in life and enjoy the little things.
For this summer, I have planned some really exciting trips. I am so excited to create some beautiful content and share it here.
At the moment, I'm anxious to see where I will attend college. It's strange not knowing where I will be living for the second half of this year. I have been trying my best to rest my worries, focus on what is at hand, and think about college choices when they come.
I have a really good feeling about 2018. I hope you all have a wonderful year filled with new experiences, love, lessons, and completed dreams and goals.
