New Years, New Heart

New Years, New Heart

Hello everyone~ it has been another hot minute since I posted something, which is also coincidentally the title to my memoir.

I posted something about one or two weeks ago and I just decided I want to spend the first two weeks of my winter vacation to completely decompress and not worry about anything. I am constantly doing something, and when I am taking a break I spend a lot of time thinking about what needs to be done.

Anyways, I wanted to talk about what is going on with me and about my 2018. Also, I wanted to talk about what is in store for me in 2019.

First things first, Townhouse Palette turned seven! Yay! I remembered on my blogiversary (Dec. 27) when I was driving to the airport. It was like an oh yeah moment for me. I was really excited about it but then I remember I posted less than 20 blogs this year... but it is a milestone!

I feel like 2018 was a pretty good year for me. I feel like I dealt with a lot of bumps in the road but I persisted and overcame them. I got a job at my school's newspaper, moved into my first apartment, got rejected from internships and got one in the end. It was fun and flew by super quick.

To me, 2018 was a blur. Like I have absolutely no clue what I did during the first half of the year. Like I have absolutely no clue except for what I wrote in small, random journal entries.

However, I think 2019 might be my year. I say that every year but this time I think it is my year. There is a lot of fun things happening, bittersweet as well.

In February, I will be 21! Being the ages of 18-20, felt like dipping my feet in the waters of being an adult, however, 21 is the real deal (watch this, I will 21 and act like nothing has changed).

I have been applying to internships and I am really excited to hear back from them and see where I go during the summer. Very excited because I applied to a lot of places within the beauty industry.

I will also be entering my senior year of college and that is really bittersweet for me, but I am excited about the future.

Also touching on my new year's resolutions, I really want to focus on finding a job/internship (depending on the time of the year) and graduate with a high GPA. Also, cliche as it sounds, my word of the year is to be brave. Brave meaning taking on new challenges and taking risks. It is really scary transitioning into this new part of my life but I am really excited.

I also want to reclaim my time and use it to be doing things that truly excite me. I spend a lot of time on the computer just perusing YouTube / Twitter and not really doing anything. So I want to start being more conscious of my time.

To recap all the years previous to 2019, I am very thankful that I have grown more in tune with myself and I know what I want. Now 2019, is going after what I want.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love to hear about your 2018 and what you plan for 2019 in the comments below.

Happy New Years ^_^
