Hello, 2018.

Well, since I said goodbye to 2017 a little early, I’ll say hello to 2018 a little late.

Dear 2017.

As much as I’m sad to see you go, I’m also happy to be rid of you. 2017 has been the best and worst year of my life so far, and definitely the hardest. I moved away from home and not just anywhere, but about as far from home as I could possibly get. I … Continue reading Dear 2017.

But I feel like out of everything I’ve learned so far, these are the things I deal with/realize the most on a daily basis. I’m … Continue reading 4 things I’ve learned in my first 4 weeks
