a fresh start
It's been such a long time since I last posted on here that I'm embarrassed to post again for fear that people will notice how long it's actually been (so please, please don't look). So much has happened since I wrote my last blog post that I honestly have a difficult time wrapping my mind around it, but it's all so wonderful and I can't wait to start sharing it with you. My summer was everything I hoped it would be: crazy, relaxing, fun, happy and, of course, full of wandering. I explored so many new places and had so many new experiences, and although it was hectic I wouldn't change anything about it. But while my break was a blast, I'm ecstatic to be back in school and starting my junior year of college—which I'm absolutely sure will be the best year yet.
In the past couple of months, I've started and ended an internship, had the privilege of participating in multiple amazing partnerships with CollegeFashionista, traveled to the far west and the deep south of the United States, moved apartments, made more new friends than I ever thought possible, and discovered that UK is the place that I am absolutely meant to be. Last year was undeniably one of the most difficult times of my life, and there was not a day that went by that I questioned what I was doing or where I was going. Yet somehow, everything just seemed to fall right into place this summer, and never in my life have I been as happy as I am right now. For the first time, I can honestly say that I love college and It makes me incredibly sad to think that it's halfway over. But as much as I hate thinking about that, I am not going to dwell on it; rather, I'm going to make the most of every single second, cherishing my new friendships, taking every opportunity I can find, and learning as much as I possibly can. This year is a fresh start, and I am determined to make the most of it. And what better way to celebrate this new start with some fabulous new shoes?
