{2018 GOALS} hello new year

After racking my brain to remember what I did in 2017, I’m now staring at a blinking cursor in a word doc titled “2018 goals.”   And my mind is about as blank as the rest of the document is. (ha. Yes. Terrible joke).   Don’t get me wrong—I’m ready for this new year (at least, I’d better be, because it’s been 2018 for five days already. Wwaaaaaah?). But 2018 is already full of so many unknowns that I have…

{WRAPPING UP THE YEAR} farewell to 2017

Christmas music is playing in my ears right now as I scroll through my blog, looking at the archives, reading old comments, and realizing how far I’ve come since last year.   In other words, hello, I’m back! Merry Christmas! December was a rather insane month, and it seems like forever since I’ve been blogging.   Before 2017 vanishes, I want to look back at the year one more time. There was SO MUCH that happened in this year that…

    So apparently I’ve been blogging for one year now.   …..   *screams* *throws confetti* *flails* ADFJKL; I CAN’T BELIEVE I SURVIVED ONE YEAR AAAHHHHHHH.   Honestly, I don’t remember the exact day I started (the reason obviously being that I didn’t have a bullet journal back then 😉 ). I started the blog, then I didn’t like the design or my first post, so I redid it (classic me), buuut I’m pretty sure my very first post…

LET’S DO SUMMER {BUCKET LIST + TBR}

  IT’S SUMMER. Okay, so not literally, since it’s not the 21st yet, but I consider it summer whenever school is out, which is June, so… It’s summer. I’m leaving it at that xD – Hike into Yosemite Valley. I’m going to Yosemite this summer with my dad! (hopefully. there’s a lot of snow in the area XP) We went last year, and this year we’re hoping to hike in or out of the valley. In sounds easier, thus we’ll…
