This is 24

This time last year, I was a hot mess. I had no idea what the heck I was doing, I couldn’t seem to figure out what exactly I wanted, and I felt incredibly alone in the world. But 23 proved me wrong….or rather, I overcame it….regardless of where the action lies, I’ve somehow managed to settle […]

So long, 2016!

2016 has been a historic year for its many ups and downs….mostly identified for the downs, unfortunately…..For me though, 2016 has been a year of great growth, starting off very rocky (adulthood is hard, y’all) and ending in a place of happiness and aspiration for the coming months.
