Please bear with me as I, for the umpteenth time since I started this blog in 2013, preface this post with an apology about my lack of consistent updates. 2014 ended on a completely abrupt, unforeseen, and sour note. Lots of self-reflection, feels, personal adjustments, and tears later, I am now welcoming 2015 and its fresh, clean slate with open arms. I just turned 20 a few days ago (bye bye teen years), and as cliche as it sounds, I'm ready to turn over a new leaf, ready for positive changes, new adventures, great company, and good vibes all around. I spent way too much time and energy wallowing in my petty woes last year. There were so many times when I felt so incredibly consumed by my own harrowing thoughts, terribly alone in the face of so much company, envious of everyone around me, and generally inadequate in my own abilities or lack thereof.
No more of that! This blog will serve as a testament to the new and improved me. I've always loved journaling (been an avid diary enthusiast since the 2nd grade when I complained about getting out of the running for the school spelling bee lol), but keeping up with it on a regular basis has always been my number one problem.
Welp, here goes nothing—thanks for following along.
