Quick Note: 1000 Views (YAY!)

Hey all!

Just writing a Quick Note to say THANK YOU! A little while ago, I reached 1000 views on my blog, and it’s amazing. I honestly thought that when I began blogging, that it wouldn’t be anything special or worth other people’s time, so to see how many people read my posts and enjoy them is incredible. Thank you so much for listening to the ramblings of an 18-year-old college student, and making me feel so supported and amazing.

Thank you so much again, this is absolutely amazing. Hope you all have an awesome week!

Quick Note: Thank You! <3

Hey all! Just a quick note to say….THANK YOU! For viewing my blog, liking my posts, commenting….everything really. I’ve gotten my highest number of views today (of all time!), so I’m extremely happy & grateful.

So if I could personally thank each & every one of you, I would (perhaps with a giant hug!)

So thank you, and I hope you all have an amazing day. xxoo Image, l

Chapter 52: Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you that celebrate it! 

For my family, this Thanksgiving, we did things a little differently. Instead of all waking up to watch the Macy’s Day Parade, we each got up at different times and relaxed. Our dinner table was set the same way, same foods, same company, but it felt different. Maybe it was because I knew that in a few days, I’ll be boarding a bus straight back to school for finals. 

Either way, it was a great Thanksgiving, and I’m thankful for a lot of things, but especially my family, because they keep me sane and grounded even while I’m away.


Chapter 9: Week of Work

Happy Wednesday to all!

Today marks a milestone, a little one at most. Today marks a week since I’ve started blogging, and I have no intention of stopping anytime in the near future. It’s a nice little accomplishment, and I’m proud of it. I think I’ll be always be proud every time I create a new post, because it’s a way for my thoughts and ideas to get out into the open, to finally have a change for them to be written into words read by you all.

So thanks for one of the best weeks I’ve had so far in my young 18 years.

Hugs to all, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts and ideas. It means the absolute world to me.
