The End of Another Year

It's about to be 2018.

The End of Another Year

It’s about to be 2018.

That’s a crazy thought that’s still settling in. Christmas is here, and in just under a week, New Years Day will be here as well. 2017 is coming to a close, yet it feels like it’s still 2010.

It’s been a year just like any other. It’s filled with the same number of days (we’ll ignore leap years), same number of hours, same number of seconds. It feels like any other year, but just like any other year, it’s incredibly different.

So many changes in life, yet I only notice those changes when I take the time to reflect on it all. Going through the motions of life, it feels as if nothing has changed. But intentionally reflecting on life is when I notice how different it all is.

Of course, this isn’t any surprise. Life moves forward and time moves forward regardless of us acknowledging any of it.

I wish it wouldn’t take the end of the year for me to start reflecting on it all. So much of life seems to just pass by without me fully appreciating any of it. It goes by like a blur. Maybe that’s why I find it so shocking that it’s already going to be 2018.

2017 may have passed by me in a blur, but I won’t let 2018 do the same. Here’s to a new year that will actually be the year it’s supposed to be. Here’s to being in the moment during all of life’s changes. Here’s to 2018 with whatever it may have in store.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
