WE’VE COME SO FAR. AND WE’VE MADE IT HERE.
Or, in the words of Drake, “Started from the bottom now we here.”
GUYS. This is my 100th post! Absolutely insane! I know it seems like a small milestone to have 100 posts since I’ve been blogging for three years. You’d think I’d have more than that, but, as you can see from reading my blog, life is one C R A Z Y ride!
Really, this post is a celebration of many things. I’m celebrating…
The fact that I’m halfway done with my junior year of college. Which means that I am over halfway done with my college career. And it’s exciting and scary and overwhelming and fabulous all at the same time. The semester went by so quickly. There were things I did right and things I realized I need to improve on. I learned so much: hard life lessons and things I’ve been continuing to grow in since my freshman year of college. God has definitely been faithful in sparing me from many things, but also allowing me to endure painful things in order to shape and mold me into who I am right now.
CHRISTMAS BREAK. Finishing my semester means I’M OFFICIALLY ON BREAK! And it’s one of the best feelings in the world to wake up in the morning and realize you don’t have to study, go to class, or work on academic projects.
CHRISTMAS. Obviously, if I’m on Christmas break, we’ll be celebrating Christmas at some point LOL. This is one of my favorite times of the year because it’s just more celebrating: of the coming of Jesus, the Savior of the world; of family and tradition; of the cherishing of friends; of all the good food college kids get to enjoy for three weeks :D. So much to be grateful for!
100 posts. This really blows my mind because when I first started this blog, I wasn’t sure if it’d survive past my freshman year of college. And here we are at my junior year with 100 posts, including the blog title-change under my belt. And it’s been absolutely great. I’m not a huge blogger with a fancy website and millions of followers, but I’m simply grateful to see that people even look at my posts. And I thank you all for being so willing to read everything I’ve written so far.
New beginnings. 2014 is almost over, and I cannot believe it. In many ways, I feel like it’s still 2013. Time is going by so quickly, and I want to cherish every moment that I have. One thing I struggle with during Christmas break is doing absolutely nothing because I’ve been going non-stop for three-and-a-half months straight at school. But I want to use every opportunity I have to do the things I haven’t been able to do during the semester, like read books for pleasure, write, blog, hand-wash my clothes (only some of them, haha). I don’t wanna wait until the new year rolls around for that. I wanna start now.
“The Times They are A-Changing”
With 100 posts here already, I’ve been faced with a decision. Honestly, I’ve been debating about this for a while now, and I wasn’t sure when the right time to do this was.
I honestly feel like it’s time to make the switch now. I’m craving something new, exciting, and fresh.So, as we speak, I’ve got tabs up online to start the process. With this change in web address, I’m thinking of yet another change in blog name. You may be thinking, What?! Again??? I hate to put you through it again, but my thought process is constantly changing. And while I have been redefined, I’ve just been thinking about my life overall and how it is so full because God has given me so much. He’s allowed so many things to occur in my life to shape and mold me, to cause me to grow. To bring me joy and comfort.
So I am prepared for a new link, a new name, and a new theme. And I’m hoping y’all will be willing to make the move with me! This is all so exciting, even though I know it’s going to require me to do a lot of work.
I’ll definitely post the new link here (I think I’ll still be able to do that…right? LOL still a lot to learn), and if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, the link will definitely be there too! I’ll make sure to make an obvious announcement. 🙂 I’m thinking I’ll probably launch the new site on New Year’s Day to bring in new beginnings and resolutions and such!
I love you all and hope that this change in everything isn’t going to completely confuse you. If you choose to stop reading, that’s okay too! I do appreciate all that my readers do to spread the word and the love around. You all have been amazing and wonderful!
Hope the holidays have been great for you all! I know it can be a hard time for some people with different circumstances. Praying that you all find true joy in the people and things that are surrounding you!
luv ya! Merry Christmas!
