So here it is! My FIRST-EVER blog post. I am so happy that I finally put my fears aside and gained the confidence to create my own page. I've gotten an unbelievable amount of support from all of my fellow bloggers, personal friends, and family. I couldn't be more thankful!
I thought that the most perfect topic to kick off my blog roll would be this question: why was I fearful of creating a blog in the first place? I can honestly say that I was fearing the idea of rejection. I didn't want my hometown friends to get a hold of it and judge me negatively. In retrospect, however, this is definitely one of the greatest and most conducive moves that I have made in the past month. I live a great life, and HELL YEAH I want to share it with the world! I want to be able to help people, connect with people, and grow with people who share the same goals and perspectives! I think that blog-sites are very beneficial to those who use them wisely. I cannot wait to be one of them!
On that note, I'm going to dedicate my first blog to Katie at Healthy Diva Life and participate in #MIMM!
Enjoying the beautiful weather on my beautiful campus! Yes, that is a castle :)
Reading a meme like this and being able to laugh along at it with your boyfriend. I can totally relate to this (especially when my school work and work in general begins to get the best of me), and I think that every woman can as well! Haha!
Having a delicious sushi dinner with your best girlfriend in the entire world. I wish we could see each other more often, but not being able to do so makes me appreciate my time with her that much more. <3
Running for class office again! It's that time of year, and I'm running for president alongside some of my greatest friends at my school. We have a great ticket established, and I'm hoping that we take the win once again! I truly love getting involved in various school organizations. I branch out so much and meet so many incredible individuals. Even if our ticket doesn't win this year's election, I'll be able to appreciate the fact that I got to serve as a Class of 2016 officer during my first year of college. I enjoyed meeting and engaging with everyone I did. Whether my classmates know it or not, I learned so much more about my school and learned so much more about myself. I was given such a memorable opportunity. I'm really crossing my fingers that this year's election works out in my ticket's favor!
My dad surviving yet another injury! He was at work and a steel piece of metal somehow managed to knock him in the head. It could have done severe damage to his head if it impacted him from another angle or punctured deeper, but he defied gravity yet again and walked away with a few stitches and a tube of Neosporin! All of my life, this man has been a walking accident magnet. Fortunately, he dodges every single one and comes out strong every time! I'm convinced that he just loves giving me heart attacks.
And of course, spending some quality time with my main squeeze! Oh, and little miss Lilly, of course :) I absolutely love every minute I get to spend with Ryan. Whether it's just us hanging out on the couch watching a flick, or me watching HIM play video games (:p), I genuinely love just being with him. We definitely have that young love. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Sorry for the poor photo quality! It was morning, what do you expect? ;)
So that just about wraps up my first post! I really hope that you guys enjoy reading what I have to share. The Freckled Nettles site is ready for takeoff!
