Once I started making my own money, back in 9th grade, I went from buying one obsession to another. First it was clothes, shoes, handbags, makeup, nail polish, jewelry making, scrapbooking and repeat. I’m always wanting more and more and it never seemed to be enough.
I hate to admit that I am materialistic because the word MATERIALISTIC has such a negative connotation. To be materialistic means one only cares about material things and the possession of goods. That surely doesn’t describe me! Or does it?
If you haven't heard/read anything about Essena O'Neill coming clean about how social media has affected her please check out her new website here. After you've watched the first few videos you'll have a better understanding of this post.
I am inspired by Essena's movement and her openness to admitting the truth about her insecurities, anxiety, and depression in her instagram photos, although she seems to be living the "dream life." After reading her *edited captions* on her instagram post, I was inspired to take a look at my instagram pictures and explain the stories behind the images.
"I'm proud to say, I am the first girl in my family to graduate from college."
It's been a little over a week now since I've (SAT) on that stage. I would say 'WALK'...but recently my university changed its graduation ceremony so instead of graduating by colleges, we now hold ONE HUGE graduation celebration at Camp Randall (Stadium) and no one gets to walk. It's a little disappointing considering we work so hard for the past 4-5 years and we don't even get the little 2 seconds of recognition most graduates should. BUT, that being said, I was ok with it because I did attend 3 other smaller graduation ceremony where I got my 2 seconds of recognition and walked.
One of the hardest thing I've had to do as an adult is to decided between a job or family and friends. I've always told myself I was family oriented but what if getting the job I've always wanted meant having to be away from my friends, family, and significant other...is it worth it?
"I've heard all the money in the world doesn't mean anything if you can't share it with the ones you love, does this still hold true?"
I've always wanted to teach abroad after college, just for a few years, but now as the time draws near there's a lot more things to consider. I guess this is what happens as you get older, you actually start thinking about the people around you and how your decisions will affect them.
Hi guys! I've finally decided to start a blog after many years of reading and enjoying other blogs. I am hoping that this blog will be my little escape from reality, as I share with you my life, goals, and things that I love. Hopefully you'll find this blog helpful and at the very least entertaining. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for many great future blog posts.
