I told myself at the beginning of 2019 that I would try to write at least once a week. Then I told myself to try to write once a month. And now, here we are, almost five and a half months since my last post. All I can say is life happens, plans change, and you cannot schedule every single second of your life.
Setting goals has always been a strong-suit of mine. I’m a Libra (yes, I’m a horoscope gal) and I have a need to be as balanced as possible in every single facet of my life. I’m somewhat of a perfectionist, I’m incredibly type-A, and when my plan goes the slightest bit off track I have a tendency to get incredibly overwhelmed. I’m a planner, a good planner, and having a plan for the past 23 years of my life- or let’s say the last 10 because I doubt my plan before the age of 13 was any good- has led me to here.
In all honesty, the last six months of my life have been met with a massive amount of change. Change is good, don’t get me wrong, but all of my changes weren’t initially in my plan and I very candidly will share that at times in the past six months it’s been really hard for me. I graduated from college which in and of itself is an enormous adjustment. Leaving my Fordham bubble feels like a break-up that neither of us really wanted, but it was just time. I miss Fordham dearly, I miss the community I built there, and very frankly, I miss the routine of having class. I’m back in the dating pool again and that adjustment has been met with a couple of disappoints and a few pleasant surprises. Then there’s the big change, the change that truly takes the cake. I started a full-time job. At Instagram (like seriously what). I am so, so blessed. I am working with a great team at and I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity. What I am really trying to emphasize is change happens for a reason: either you’re growing up, or moving on, or adjusting to a new environment. Change is good, change is hard, and change in life is inevitable. I’m so excited and terrified all in one to see what’s next, let’s enjoy the ride.
