Winter quarter felt like I took a long hike through a beautiful trail with fantastic weather that somehow managed to lead me to a series of obstacles like a roaring river or some random bottomless pit I somehow managed to cross. A rollercoaster ride is one of the most overused cliches to describe life, but this time I really felt like it accurately described winter quarter for me.
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.
Hey guys! I realized I’ve been feeling a little lost and isolated here on wordpress, and it’s because I don’t follow anybody! I need to read other blogs for inspiration and entertainment! So please comment on this post if you have a blog you want to share with me, and others 🙂
Slowly, but surely, there’s been developments with my makeup journey! I bought a new eyelash curler, concealer, new lipstick and I wore lipstick outside. Hurrah! Plus, I’m being a little braver wearing makeup outside! It’s been a slow journey but my confidence in wearing makeup outside has definitely developed since this summer.
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.
Guys, I just binged-watched Jane the Virgin and it was fantastic. I don’t think I’ve ever been hooked into a TV show as fast as I was with this show. Literally a good five minutes in and I knew that it was the show for me. And trust me, it takes me at least a good three episodes in before I can say: “Huh, yup okay I’ll watch it”.
So for some reason, I have this habit where I want to do sooo many things, that I end up doing absolutely nothing. Nada. Zip. It’s so frustrating! I can’t believe I do this honestly. It’s been happening for the past year in my first year, and it’s happening right now. I waste so much of my time looking at the opportunities to do things, that I never even have the chance of ACTUALLY doing them.
