Christmas of my senior year of high school one of my friends gave me this journal from Urban Outfitters… So in January of 2011 I started journaling; prayers, quotes, ups, downs, anything and everything. Two and a half years later I finished my first journal. Sometimes I would write multiple times in a day, and other times I would go weeks without writing. It was the first place I ever expressed my thoughts about maybe not wanting to be a physician’s assistant and instead doing something in fashion. I wrote prayers to God about making a way for me to go to Fashion Week (which I have now gone to TWICE). Some pages are filled with joy, while others are filled with tears. I honestly would have never pictured myself where I am today, in so many aspects. I never would have expected to get the opportunity to spend the summer in New York. I never would have expected to find friends that have become like family. I never would have expected to have my own blog. As cliche as it sounds, I feel like ending that journal was ending a chapter of my life if you will, and I’m so excited about what this new chapter will bring.
I know I posted this quote a while back, but I found it fitting.
