2015 was fun
with many opportunities and a growing appreciation for effort and self confidence.

2016 has plans
to be scary (in a safe way)
with many opportunities as well
take care of myself
and travel


2016 is my year

I'm debuting in my new girl group

called success


For me, the new year only means it's almost January 4th and on January 4th I have to go back to work. January 6th my new shoes arrive but on January 11th I start my internship. I'm really nervous.


It's good to be reminded of where I am.

Comfort means I've accepted mediocrity because I know I'm not yet where I can be.



Very thankful for a family who doesn't need to spend every second of our lives trying to prove to each other that we appreciate and love one another.

Somewhat thankful for discovering a show that somehow motivated me to start working out for the sake of my health versus working out only for the visual results of weight loss.

Grateful for all the opportunities I was able to receive these past few weeks even though some feelings may have been hurt in the process, including my own.

I am always caught up in the same loop of tiredness and schoolwork that I forget to really think about the cooler things I have going for myself.



I read once about the concepts of the lateral idea and the vertical idea. If you dig a hole and it's in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help. Seymour Chwast.
