A Year in Review


Man, has it been a whirlwind of a year. I’ve learned so much about myself in 365 days.

What have you learned about yourself in the last year? Tell me in the comments!

What I did:

A year ago yesterday I was graduating from college.
A year ago today I was jumping on a plane bound for Paris. I’m such a Francophile.
I hopped on a train bound for Brussels to spend some time with the guy I was dating at the time, Luke.
I rescued a sweet baby dog named Patches.
I visited Boston for the first time with my parents. And we saw Wicked, my third time now.
I had awesome seats to one of the Angels vs Braves NLDS games. Never an Angels fan, always the Giants. But, for safety’s sake, I pretended to root for the Braves.
I met Olympic Gold Medalist Misty May-Treanor.
I did the Atlanta Metro Heart Walk.
Luke and I broke up. It really sucked.
I worked at the Mayor’s Senior Ball, and had a blast.
I went to my first annual Decatur Wine Festival with one of my favorite people.
I turned 22!
My cousin went on a cross country road trip, and stopped by to visit me!
I took the LSAT for the second time. Freaking exhausting. But I guess it kinda paid off.
I helped host lots of Christmas Parties at work for a city department, and some senior groups.
I went home for Christmas, and two of my cousins joined me! One is a senior in high school (She graduates this Saturday! Congrats little baby!) and her older sister, who’s in the Air Force being real cool and translating a bunch of stuff.
I caught up with one of my very first best friends ever.
I helped staff some of Mayor Reed’s Second Inaugural events.
I stood about three feet away from Usher at Inauguration, sort of the highlight of everything ever.
SNOWPOCOLYPSE part 1 & part 2 locked down Atlanta.
I started this blog.
My best friend got into TFA! Read about that over here, on her blog.
I went to Orlando with my awesome mom, and taught her how to take tequila shots.
I committed to Atlanta John Marshall Law School, and attended the Accepted Students Reception.
I did my very first 5k! I walked it, but whatever, I did it.
My sweet angel dog graduated from his first training class!
I participated in my first Alumnae Weekend!
I saw my Giants play the Braves right here in Atlanta.

What I learned:

I am not responsible for other people’s emotions and reactions.
I have accomplished many things in my relatively short life.
I’m going to be okay. It’s all going to be okay.
You can’t please everyone, and it’s exhausting to try.
So much about the City of Atlanta government.
Red lipstick might not go either every outfit, but when in doubt, it does.
I need to pay attention to what is best and healthiest for me.
I deserve the best out of a man.
I’m a real adult.
I am going to figure out law school and I’m going to kick it in the face.
