Hello all! I hope everyone has had a safe, healthy, and prosperous holiday season!
I’ve recently come off of the most brutal semester of my life and adjusting back to myself has been a huge challenge. I’ve been falling victim to Newton’s First Law; I can’t seem to sit still. Since exams ended, I’ve completed a few projects. I put together a gift for my extended family – my uncle’s drunken retelling of A Christmas Story. For my mother’s Christmas present, I also organized all of my family’s photos into gorgeous photo albums (not sponsored, just wanted you to see the beauty!).
Now that my holiday season has slowed down, though I still have my birthday and New Year’s, I feel like I am finally able to fully sit down. It’s the first time in almost 10 months where I don’t have a single damn thing on my to-do list. What’s a girl to do?
While throughout my semester, I desperately wanted to return to my blog, I just physically couldn’t. I had papers and assignments left, right, and center. I’ve been so busy that my last post was about how busy I was.
But I couldn’t forget you.
I grabbed a journal and carried it around with me everywhere to jot ideas of where I wanted to take this blog. I was in the midst of a transition from project-based content to entrepreneurship-based content at the start of the semester and once classes got well underway, I knew I couldn’t navigate that transition to the ability I wanted and maintain my coursework. But a girl could dream. And that’s exactly what I did. I thought through every aspect of my return and what was next for me.
Lately, I’ve been having a really deep feeling that I’m ready to step out of my comfort zone and go after something risky. I’ve always played it safe. I’ve been careful about what I post online, probably more careful than necessary. As a result, it’s stopped me from making the content I really truly want to make. But some energy in me has shifted and I think I feel new opportunities coming.
So join me on the next phase of this journey, wherever it goes, as we sail to wherever I’m supposed to go. As I try whatever entrepreneurial ideas I want. As I pave a new future for myself where I’m not scared. As I try and be a better and more complete person.
