I can't believe it's 2015 already, like actually though, what the eff you guys!
It seems like just yesterday I was watching Back to the Future 2 and looking forward to 2015 for pizza hydrators, while waiting for Tupac to come back from the dead, and look at me now...without either of those things...and throughly disappointed :(
Anywho, I meant to give you an update when I reached 6 months living in New York. I meant to give you an update when I was featured on BBC's World Have Your Say discussing Ferguson. I meant to give you an update when I met a really dreamy boy. I meant to give you an update when I got offered a position writing copy for Marc Jacobs corporate. I meant to give you an update when my blog reached it's 4 year anniversary. I'VE BEEN MEANING TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE, PERIOD.
But now, as I sit here, in my 2002-Paris Hilton-esque Ugg Boots, surrounded by clean laundry, I finally have a moment to pause and reflect.
I love this blog more than anything in the world, I love you readers more than I love donuts, and I can't believe that on December 24th 2014, I reached 4 YEARS on this blog (not to mention 7 months living in New York).
These four years have been absolutely insane for me. I began this blogging journey as a day-dreaming drooling 17-year-old senior in High School, and now I'm a college graduate who lives and writes in Brooklyn, New York. I didn't have a very eventful High School career (Or at least, I'd like to forget most of it anyway) and as corny as this sounds, I think I started this blog right around the time my life actually begun, and it's been pretty fucking great so far.
This blog has been there for me through countless heart-aches, heartbreaks, major holidays and life events, traveling, and even through the tragic death of a few friends. Having this outlet as constant in my life has proven invaluable to me and my development as a semi-sweet human morsel.
I had no intention of turing this piece into a corny-ass, Class President Graduation speech about how in these four years we've grown so much, and how we'll remember these moments 4eva and we're setting off into a sea possibilities, but in a way this does sort of feel like equally as big of a milestone.
Thinking about how far I've come since I began this blog four years ago, makes me realize that I'm fucking capable. Long gone are my days of endlessly scrolling on tumblr, dreaming of a life beyond mine and just hoping that I'd one day finish school, live in New York, and a gal about town someday. While my days are still sometimes sad, and I spend more evenings than I'd like to admit, watching Netflix and wearing fat pants, I've done a lot and I'm fucking excited for the future.
Look forward to me yearly New Years Resolution video coming to this blog soon.
And lets make a good 2015 together! Sound good? SOUNDS GOOD~
keep it sassy,
