Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019

Hello my lovely readers! First off, I want to apologize for the lack of activity, finals were brutal and the holidays were crazy (but fun!). I celebrate Christmas with my family and it’s one of my favorite times of the year (the other being summer). Christmas Eve is spent at my Nana’s house in North Andover and my ENTIRE family (mostly) is there and we eat WAY too much food and see all the adorable little children. When I was younger, I would have the job of chasing the kids around and playing with them and that was honestly my favorite thing about that day (besides presents of course). Now at 20 years old, (yes, it blows my mind as well) I get to cradle the babies and hang with the adults. It is a tradition at my Nana’s that Santa comes and gives each of the little ones a gift. Sadly this year was the first that I didn’t get anything when the big man came. My mom asked me and I thought it may be a little sad for a 20 year old to be getting a gift from Santa, so I politely declined, deciding to wait until morning to open everything. Christmas Day is spent with my dad and his side of the family. We usually go to my Aunt’s house in Andover (I always get deja vu on the way down because I was just in the area the day before). Needless to say, the Holidays are wonderful, albeit a little exhausting.

The year is coming to an end and I have to say, it was pretty good. At the beginning of 2018, I finished my first year of college and began my second. I also turned the big 2-0 and left my teenage years behind for good. Turning 20 scared me a little. Don’t get me wrong, I was and still am excited, but the thought that I’m an ADULT now and I’ll never be a kid again makes me feel uneasy. I know that we all grow up, but I just don’t want to anymore (*whining voice implied*). At least next year I can legally drink!!!! Yay me! Anyway, I’m looking forward to see what 2019 has in store for my life. I hope it’s good and I hope it includes an internship this summer at Seacoast Media Group.

Now, I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, but some people do. If I were to have one, it would be to be kind. Focus on being Kind and strong. What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Drop them in the comments!!

As always, shine on loves!!
