Welcome 2016

Where should I even begin? Obviously I’ve been slacking in writing. I’ve been slacking in giving myself enough me time. But it’s a new year, and I plan on changing some things. Starting a new year makes me reflect on my past year and think about my continuing future goals.

I’m going to start with where I left off. I finished my third semester of school, began an internship at Piñon Hills Community Church with the marketing director working on graphics, improved immensely on all my graphic design skills and website creation, and of course stayed on top of workouts, having a boyfriend, and doing various projects (mostly cooking related).

I like to tell my story through pictures, so here’s yet another gallery.

As you can see I had quite a full semester. Will do a separate post about my graphics work and school, as well as what I plan on doing this year. I have made it a goal to blog once a week this year (or a minimum of twice per month). I really enjoy sharing parts of my life with you and writing. I hope that you are inspired to do more and to enjoy life. I need to take my own advice and slow down enough to stop and write every once in a while. 🙂


A new year, same me

It’s been too long since I’ve written. It’s amazing how quickly things can get away from me. Last year had quite a few highlights.

2014 recap

  • It was the year of many odd jobs, which had its advantages and disadvantages. I’ve had more than five jobs this year.
  • Traveled to China for the first time and had quite the adventure. I still have a stash of photos that I may get to posting.
  • First boyfriend. Still not very outspoken about this.
  • Bought my first car.
  • Completed a semester of 17 credit hours at San Juan College and got all As.
  • Started working out five to six days a week with a friend. Ran a half marathon (13 miles), but not as a part of a race.
  • Started/joined a book group and game night.
  • Enjoyed as much of everyday as I could.

I’m sure 2015 will bring its own set of adventures. I don’t really have any resolutions for 2015, just a few goals.

  • Now that we’ve run a half marathon we’re tackling the 100 push up challenge (be able to do 100 consecutive push ups). I also want to be able to do pull ups.
  • Read more. Write more.
  • Narrow down all my odd jobs to one part-time job. I am now on the search for a new job (how I hate to wait for phone calls).
  • Save for future traveling.
  • Survive two more semesters of college.

And as the year goes on I’ll have a more goals I’m sure. I wish you all the best for the new year. Enjoy it!
