2019 went by in the blink of an eye and I wish it had enjoyed it a bit more. It may have gone by so quickly because of all the changes that have happened. Between all the hubba bubba of moving from the middle of the country to actually moving to sunny Texas, I find myself gasping for air in a way!
Year in review:
#1 – Change sucks, but it gets better.
Moving to a completely new place was a hard time for me at first. I was extremely home sick and felt so lonely. Especially as a senior in high school (read: opposite of heaven), I couldn’t wait to go home after school. I had always been surrounded with friends so eating lunch alone was a new experience for me and it seriously sucked. That was in August though and I can tell you that I have moved on from being home sick. It took time of course, so don’t worry it gets better.
#2 – Don’t depend on other people.
Oh boy, wasn’t this one a hard lesson for me to learn. Yes, yes it was. I think we all know the feeling of being attached to say a new love and suddenly you are ghosted. Poof, he or she is gone. It’s something like this which makes you toughen up and wear black all week. I learned that I easily become overly loyal.
#3 – Swallow your fears and make friends.
Swallow your fears and make friends…even though you may not end up liking them. Or even if they ghost you. Making new friends sends shivers down my spine but hey you can’t expect everything to be given to you on a silver platter. I learned that sometimes I have to make the first move and talk to others even if I get rejected. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no. I even made three new friends this way! If I can do it, so can you.
- Adopt a new morning routine
- Live fearlessly
- Be open minded
- Make my bed every morning
- Focus on the future
- Apply for many internships
- Go to bed early and wake up early
- Conquer being lazy and get things done!
This list is going to get bigger as the year goes on but for now, I think that is more than enough for me! What are your goals for the year? Please share and I would love to hear from you all! Thank you for reading.
As always, don’t forget to stay Chic Neat and Sweet!
