10 Things I Learned at 22.

So a couple of weeks ago, I turned 22. You know that one age that no one really acknowledged until Taylor Swift made a song about it? Surprisingly, I did not have Taylor Swift blaring through the apartment, but I must say I am feeling 22. This year is a huge year for me. I graduate from college and end that season of my life. I have to put my degree to work and find a big girl job. This year, adulting happens in full effect. So many changes are about to happen and take place in my life. I honestly don’t know if I’m ready for it, but it doesn’t matter because it’s happening lol.

Through my many life experiences at 22, I have learned some things. You know that saying, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?” I used to think it was a bunch of bologna, but it honestly is true. Over the past couple of years I have had amazing memories, but also some horrible ones. But in every moment, good and bad, I have learned a lesson. Here are a few things I’ve learned over the years:

I’m Back (Again)

It has been way too long! I don’t remember the last time I actually sat down to type up a blog post. In some ways it feels weird and other ways it feels familiar. I’ve missed this. I think this is about the fourth time I’ve had to apologize for a long absence on my blog. I’m not going to lie, sometimes life gets in the way. I wasn’t really in a creative head space to create new content for you guys. We all have those moments, but I’m back! I’m not going to make any promises about the amount of blog posts I will be able to put up a week, but I can promise you I will try. I have some exciting things already in the works that I can’t wait to share with you guys. I just wanted to say thank you for everyone who has been here from day 1. You loyal, I appreciate you! To all of my new readers, WELCOME! Get ready for some new posts in the next couple of days. I’ll be sharing about some things I’ve learned in my 22 years on this earth. It’s going to be great!

xoxo,

M.
