Look back over that first month of blogging I think it really took quite awhile to establish my footing as a blogger. The posts I post now are so different from the posts I posted back then. I really figured out by reading other people's blogs the kind of posts I wanted to post. Over the past year blogging has become an extremely joyful hobby. I have a post coming up of the changes I want to make moving forward on my blog so I won't spoil those for you now.
Looking back at the year so much has happened. My cousin Dylan is 1 year old today. It seems like a lifetime ago that we were seeing him in the hospital.
I graduated from High School in May of 2013. It was a glorious day and a day I was very proud to finally accomplish. Graduation taught me what I really could achieve in life. I had the honor of receiving a scholarship at Graduation. I got the letter about Summer Bridge a week later.
Starting college in July really changed my outlook on life. At the time I didn't really appreciate the experience just wanted it to be over with. Now looking back on my month of college I'm really proud that I was able to complete math and speech in just one month and achieve high grades in both. I think it has helped me to feel more prepared and relaxed as a college freshman. I just finished up my first semester and have learned that all grades were great. I'm extremely proud of all the effort I put into college. I know I will be able to achieve high standards on this academic ground.
Not to mention my cousin Alli made her appearance in the world on August 23rd, 2013. The day I moved into college. Boy this girl has timing. I wasn't able to meet Alli until November thanks to a lot of hard scheduling. It seemed every time I was home my cousin was busy so we couldn't come see the baby. I have seen in total 3 times now which is pretty good.
Senior Year was only the beginning of the many changes that would occur in my life. I think this year has been a great year in books and my personal life. I hope to continue to find courage in myself in 2014. I hope to continue to meet great people and continue to move forward in establishing my life.
I want to thank all my readers for following me over this past year. It has been a fun, joyous journey. I look forward to another great year of blogging in 2014. I have more plans to become more involved in the community and create a more fun atmosphere for everybody on my blog.
Have a safe and Happy New Year
