A Look Back on 2014

new year

So technically this post is a little bit late. I’d actually written it several days ago and wasn’t sure about putting it up. I’m never too sure how personal I want to get on here, but I also think it is important to share my feelings. Because how I feel does affect how I dress and how I write.

2014 was kind of a weird year for me. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t too special either. With a bad room-mate experience, having doubts about my major, and just questioning myself. Something I felt for the first time was that I always needed to be part of the crowd, and always participate. There was this constant feeling that always had to be participating in what the group was doing, because everyone was. I never felt like it was ok to just do my own thing.  I felt that people thought it was strange that I didn’t want to be a part of every group function. And because I was thinking this way, I felt my blog suffered some.

When I have to be honest, I’d much rather be spending my time typing away at my computer than go out partying. And I’m also loving my time as a single gal. This year I had a lot more people pressuring me with the question of “when am I going to get a boyfriend”. But at the moment I’m just not looking for one. I think I still have a lot of learning to do as an individual before I’ll be ready to be part of a relationship. I also love the freedom I have to focus on doing what makes me happy.

. Switching majors has really helped me to reevaluate my life and realize what I really want out of it. I love practicing my camera skills and editing my photos. I think it’s exciting practicing my writing and challenging my capabilities as a writer. i have also realized the time I’m out there being something I’m not, is time I could be chasing my dreams. It’s not that I don’t love my friends and hanging out, but I also love my blog and want to make it my priority at the moment.

I hope to make 2015 a much more positive year. After figuring some things out about myself, I’m approaching the new year with a new confidence. I have a better outlook and things to come and have been thinking of lots of ideas I want to bring to the blog. If you’ve made it to the end of this mush, you’re awesome! Thank you for reading, and here’s to a good year.
