2017 was raw. For me, it was a collision of trying new things, hardships, big life decisions, heartbreaks, anger, pure joy, and, most importantly, growth. This year, I went to Disneyland (twice!), Portland, LA, Detroit, New York, Tucson.

I saw countless bands live and I worked two internships. I graduated college. I turned 21. I announced my move to NYC. Aaron and I celebrated our fourth Christmas together. But some rough shit happened too.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish college because I couldn’t get another loan. I had zero time to blog for months because I was so busy. I had four teeth pulled, one toenail surgically removed, my endometriosis got worse, and I got hit by a car.

However, I grew from all of this.

I have never felt so strong and fulfilled in my entire life. 2016 was a time of self-discovery and self-establishment, and 2017 was a test to see how much I could handle and still manage to enjoy my life. For that, I am grateful.

I am hoping 2018 is a year of blossoming and learning new things, and I want to do that with you! Whether it be a comment or a DM, let me know what posts you would like to see in the next year!

Here is a documentation of my 2017 in photos!
