Whew well we just ended 2017 and everyone keeps asking what my resolutions are. Well resolutions don’t work for me and I set goals instead. So without going on and on about that here are my 2018 goals, my mantra for the year, a funny, a playlist and a recap AKA: 2017 in review.

Recapping my December and 2017! I'm also sharing a joke, my 2017 playlist and my word of the year. Then I'm sharing my 2018 goals-both personal and blog related.


December recap

So December was suuuuper busy! I didn’t have finals so the first week of classes were my last. In lieu of finals we had projects so here is my personal website (that also has all the other projects I made in design class) and then we had a group advertising principles project. Once school let out, we had lunches, holiday parties and other things to attend. The days leading up to Christmas were hectic. We attended a civil ceremony, Christmas Eve service, Christmas Eve dinner then Christmas Day itself.

I spent New Years Eve trying to ward of sickness then New Years Day and so far mom and I are combating the flu. Great start to 2018. Great.

Follow me on Instagram to see my daily adventures. I was going to recap my 2017, but I realized I did that by month: Jan., Feb., March, April, May, June, July, Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov.
