As 2018 is coming to a close, it is time to reflect on some things that happened this year. 2018 had quite its struggle bus moments for me in my life, but I was able to learn from those moments. I learned that failure was ok. Failure for me this year meant falling down and getting right back up. I'm not going to be good at everything I do, so learning to accept that has been a little hard, but I've learned that I am much stronger once I get back up from my tough times.

Boys will be boys as cliche as that may sound, and sometimes you might just need to not have some of them in your life because they may be negative and sis you don't need that kind of negativity in your life whatsoever (thanks to Rachel Hollis I have now picked up some of her slang/inspo). But the ones that do add value to your life can stay and continue on your journey with you in whichever form they want (most likely in a group chat similar to group me.. you may end up being the meme/gif queen to them eventually).

Friends will always be there for you to vent to, they know you as equally as your family. I've learned to keep all my friends close to me even if they go to a different school. It's nice to know that I will always have some people forever in my #squad. 2018, you have taught me a lot about myself but you have also been a year of growth. I've grown a lot in my faith journey and with the organizations, I'm lucky to be apart of (shout out to SAO, Odyssey, and Campus Catholics). Thank you for 2018 and all its memories but I'm ready to start the next chapter!
