Hello loves!

I hope you got into the new year all safe and sound.

For me, it's crazy to believe that 2018 is already over. I could've sworn that it begun only a month ago...

2018 has been a mixed year for me. I have had my fair shares of incredible memories and stories that I am now able to tell later on and am so many experiences richer, braver, happier, and smarter. And to keep a balance in my life, I have had some downs as well.

2018 has definitely not been my year because I don't feel grown or that anything has changed, personally. I still feel like the same ol' me, just with so many more memories and experiences, but I have a feeling that 2019 is gonna change that. I feel like 2019 is gonna be my year - and I cannot be more excited!

I already know that 2019 is gonna bring me life changing opportunities, in many ways, but especially with me moving abroad for three months to complete an internship. I CANNOT WAIT.
I need something to challenge my comfort zone and my urge to always have a safety net. Which is why I'm taking my internship abroad. I need to stand on my own two feet, that's why they're there, and I need to be my own person. Deep down I feel like, for me to be my own person, I need to get the hell out of my home country and start a new life somewhere else.

2018 brought me both new and old friendships, just as it brought me both closer and further away from friendships. I met new people when starting university, I rekindled two childhood friendships (whereas one just didn't match anymore), I got closer to a work friend as much as high school friends, and sadly I grew from other friends whom I thought would be in my life for a long time - such a long time that we had planned to go on vacations once a year. But that is life, my friends, and you just have to trust your story enough that people come and go as they fit your chapters, and that it isn't the end of the world when they leave.

2019, please be kind to me and please live up to my expectations and more so.

Much love to all of you amazing humans out there reading this (and not)! <3`
