Guys, I had the apartment all to myself for an entire week! Okay let’s be real like five days. (okay 4 days). This was the first time I’ve ever been alone, like alone alone. The max I’ve ever been by myself in my apartment was a couple hours because my housemates never seemed to want to leave their rooms. So for the past year, being alone has always been a blessing. This time was different. I couldn’t even hear random chatter throughout the house or anything. It was kind of lonely, but also very liberating!
Summer is a sweet time where I can relax, mindlessly watch shows, and…feel guilty about time that I have wasted. Summer months always result in this inevitable daily guilt trip where I berate myself for doing absolutely nothing with my life and still refuse to do anything afterwards. And while I am adamant on being productive and useful this summer, I have somehow managed to talk myself out staying in my college town. Oh boy.
The month of May has been absolutely beautiful. Flowers are blooming-okay have already bloomed- and the sun has graced us with its presence. Guys, the year 2017 is almost halfway over. MAYDAY MAYDAY I’M NOT READY. But, before we panic about the time passing by so quickly, I think it’s important to pause, take a deep breath, and remember the good that’s happened so far.
I have been dreaming about dying my hair and the wonderful outcome and consequences it would bring into my life. I would become more confident! It will lighten up my face! I’ll be glowing and smiley and so much better than my current self! People will stop me on the sidewalk and compliment my radiant glow! Or…not.
Hey folks! So I just wanted to share a little story that I think will help you all remember that everyone goes through different things, and small gestures can do wonders to other people’s days. I want to share the time during winter break where I was flying back home, and a woman was very touched with something that I thought was an incredibly insignificant thing.
It only took a blink or two and February has already retired. So why exactly have I been MIA, and did I reach any of my goals for this month? Oh dear, let’s take a look.
I’m telling you, I thought I was going to write every single weekend starting 2017. The title of this article has changed from: “My goals in 2017!” to “It’s not to late to make goals for 2017!” all the way to what it is now, “Hello & Goodbye to January!”. It’s crazy how so many thing have already happened to me in January, and I’m excited to share it all in this post!
Is it weird to be getting holiday blues when I don’t really have anything to be blue about? It seems like everyone else is affected by the infamous “2016 sucked & so do the holidays” syndrome. It’s crazy, sure there will be people who just don’t get into the holidays. BUT for me of all people?? I started decorating my dorm and busting out my jingle bell earrings November 1st (my friend had a video with a time stamp to prove it).
Okay guys so the weirdest thing just happened to me today. I was over at a little get together at my friends house, and later on in the night one of my friends offered to give us tarot card readings. Of course it wasn’t a legit reading, they were fake cards anyway, but she hit ridiculously close to home I was wondering if she somehow knew what my situation was and tailored my reading to what I was thinking about.
Okay guys, the holidays are literally right around the corner. And usually, around this time, I would be pestering my family about what they want for christmas. Then I would make christmas lists of possible presents and then stress out about the present that they would want. I think it’s really easy to stress out and be self-conscious about the presents you give to others. And that’s not what christmas- or any other holiday should be about.
