April has been INSANE. From magazine features to showcase invitations, hitting 1K on Instagram and 1.5K on my Facebook page. So much has happened in a month that to this day, I still can’t believe it. I am blown away by the opportunities that have come my way, the doors that have opened and things I have learned along this journey. April has been a month of changes, challenges, lessons, self-doubt, anxiety, stress, frustration, but most of all, it has been fun, exciting and I have learned and grown as a person, artist, blogger, and creator.
Writing this post gives me chills. I can’t believe another year goes by and I also can’t believe it is my second Christmas in California. I really hope this year is better. Last year was kind of sad and lonely. By this time last year, I was moving to California, starting a new job and had no friends. I was missing my family and had nowhere to spend Christmas. But anyway, 2017 was a good one, full of emotions, growth and new beginnings. So, I am very excited for the new years and for the new goals to tackle.
I really love round-up posts in general, whether they’re monthly round-up posts, beauty round-up posts or anything personal. Just call me nosy AF. I know, sorry. So, this year I am very excited to write my own and share with you guys some of the most important dates and accomplishments of this year. I’ll divide it by months, only the relevant ones, and will mention what happened, did or accomplished during that month.
