2018 in Review

(from left to right)


Happy new year everyone!  Okay, okay, I'm about a month late on this.  To be honest, January has been a bit of a weird month for me filled with some highs and lows.  The month began back in Montana, where after a fun two and a half weeks, I sadly had to say goodbye to my friends and hometown.  But instead of heading directly back to London, my mom and I decided to spend a few days in California visiting family.  Even though I just saw many of them back in August, I normally don't get to see them this often so it's always great to catch up with them.  When I did eventually go back to London, I barely stayed long enough to cure my jet lag, as I was quickly off to Rome!  I'll have lots of posts on that later, so make sure to check back around here again soon.  In addition to all of this traveling, I think I've been struggling a bit with those Post-Holiday blues.  I know it's a common thing to feel around this time of the year, and I think I just didn't realize just how much I was enjoying my time back at home with my old friends and family.  But never mind me, I think this is just my long winded excuse as to why I haven't posted in so long.

So let's get back to the main topic: 2018.  I actually really enjoyed the year.  I traveled a great deal more than I expected, had a successful year at uni, and completed an unforgettable internship Tank Magazine.  My time at Tank was such a tremendous learning experience, and now only did it allow me to travel to Gent, but it also fulfilled a dream of mine of having my name printed in a magazine.
Now that 2019 is in full effect, I have so many exciting things coming up.  Most importantly, I'll be graduating from uni!  I'm currently in my last semester, which means I'll be entering the adult world soon!  I hope more than anything I'll be able to get a job in London, but who knows where the world will take me.  It's actually crazy to me that the end of my time in uni is so imminent as for so long the year 2019 sounded ages away.  Time truly does fly by as you get older.  In addition to graduating, I have some exciting travel plans coming up.  I'll be returning to Italy this summer to visit family (despite having gone to Rome this month), and I'm currently trying to plan a trip to Vienna before the Wes Anderson exhibition closes at the end of April; unfortunately I'll be finishing my classes during that time so it may not be possible.  If I have time - and let's face it, the money - some other places I'd love to visit are Salzburg, Berlin, and Amsterdam!

Here's to 2018, and let's make 2019 even better!
