2018 Wasn't For Me, But 2019 Will Be

2018 Wasn't For Me, But 2019 Will Be

I got my heart broken, in the way where I cried myself to sleep for months and really just lost myself.


I thought 2018 was going to be my year, but it turned into the complete opposite. I got my heart broken, in the way where I cried myself to sleep for months and really just lost myself. Then I started to think of ways to better myself, so I got into a program I wanted and got a job I knew I would love. Then I struggled in college, trying to make time for studying and working; it became hard.

As 2018 came to an end, I started doing things for myself to better myself. I joined a team with beach body and now I'm coaching. I realized I needed to focus on myself and get things better for me and my future. Nothing would stand in my way once 2019 hit.

Now even though 2019 just started, I really focused on myself. I'm still working at the job I love, I'm still a coach with beach body, I'm still in college trying to figure things out. But now I'm happier for myself. I've always done so much for other people that it's actually time to focus on myself and making decisions for me.

I won't let anyone stand in my way of me getting what I want this year. This year is all about me and bettering myself. If you aren't apart of that then there is a reason for it. I've made some drastic changes so far and I'm proud of my progress so far with myself and can't wait to continue to see the changes that are yet to come.

Of course, there are some things I'm not changing but most of my life is getting completely flipped upside down to make myself happy. I know it may seem like a lot but sometimes people need to do things to make themselves happy for once and really that's all I'm trying to achieve.

I know I couldn't do this without the support of my best friends which I'm so very thankful for. Everything I do they are so supportive and always tell me to go after my dreams. They show interest in my passions which makes me so unbelievably happy I don't think they understand. I also couldn't do this without the support of my family. They've been there since day 1. Dealing with every single one of my emotions, I don't know how they handled it.

2019 is really showing some bright side to it and I'm so excited to see what comes. There are so many possibilities out there that you just need to find sometimes. If you have a dream for this year, go after it. Don't sit back and wait for it to happen, sometimes things don't work like that. Go out and have the time of your life, stay home and read a book, do the things you are scared of, fall for the boy you never thought you would've.

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

Why You Should Consider Spring Recruitment

the benefits of sorority life


It's that time of year again!! Time for sororities to get back in the recruitment swing and gain some awesome new members! I serve as recruitment coordinator for my sorority here at The University of Georgia, and love everything recruitment has to offer.

Some of my closest friends in my sorority rushed in the spring as opposed to the beginning of the fall semester. Talking with them and having helped plan spring recruitment, we all came to the common conclusion that spring recruitment is the best!!!

I know that a lot of girls hold themselves back from joining a sorority because of the overwhelming journey it takes to receive a bid. However, spring recruitment is different because often times it is a whole lot more low key and less intense than the typical fall recruitment. It is done on a much smaller scale and really allows you to talk with a handful of sisters in order to get a better idea of what the sorority offers. There can be games, food, and activities involved - who doesn't love the sound of that??!

Maybe last semester was a tough one or you just weren't sure sorority life was for you- whatever the case may be, now is your opportunity to be a part of one of the best things college has to offer!

I'll admit I definitely did not see myself as the "typical sorority girl," but here I am convincing you to take a chance. I can truthfully say that the time I have spent in my sorority has given me some of my favorite memories and has proven to be the biggest blessing. Being a sister has allowed me to travel, find personal growth, develop the strongest of friendships, and ultimately has given me the best support system. Going through my college experience knowing that I have a group of girls that have my back and are there to support me 24/7 has been such a gift. Plus it is always fun to have a class or study buddy! Not only do you gain best friends, but you truly do gain a family as well.

I know it can be a daunting task to put yourself out into an unfamiliar setting with new people, but I promise, if you embrace the experience and stay open you may just find yourself hanging out with your new best friends. Going through recruitment forces you of your comfort zone and pushes you in the best ways possible. Start the year off experiencing something new and exciting! It is so much fun to get to talk to new people and hear all new stories. I can truly tell you that I have laughed louder and smiled more because of taking a chance and going through recruitment. Seeing my sisters brightens my day and adds more joy to my life. And besides, what girl doesn't love an excuse to get all dolled up and put on her cutest outfit?!

Recruitment is a 11/10 experience – would 100% recommend!
