It took me an hour to get dressed yesterday morning, and this is all I could come up with. Sorry, it has been a really long week. I promise my next outfit will not be a Gap striped top with a skirt. I am a ball of emotions: excited, stressed, disappointed, frustrated, overwhelmed, and grateful. Here's why: I got two new kids in my class; I have three papers due next week; finals the week after that; I'm turning 21 tomorrow; I'm going to Vegas with Robert in two weeks; the preschool is changing locations and I have a bajillion ideas for the new place; my Marais Maryjane bow flats came but they're too small so I'm exchanging them; and...I got a heater for my room.
I think I'm getting the end-of-the-year/birthday blues. I begin each year with a list of resolutions determined to finally accomplish all of them, and maybe achieve world peace along the way. This determination wanes each day, and finally each year ends in disappointment. I don't think 2010 has been any different. Looking back on my resolutions, I accomplished 2.5 out of 5: I took more photos, landed a gig as a wedding photographer, and graduated college a year early (but didn't apply to art school, hence the 0.5). I didn't lose weight; I think I gained a lot more actually. I think I also ended up spending more money on clothes rather than less. At the same time, I went to New York twice and fulfilled a dream of attending NYFW fashion shows; I'm alive, in love, and loved; and I got a job within months of graduation in the field I want. I guess we can't get everything we want. It's kind of crazy how things have changed so much within this one year. I almost forgot I wanted to pursue photography earlier this year, and look at me now, a teacher at a preschool. This end of the year reflection is about a month premature, but I guess I now have an extra month to make 2011 my year.
How was your year?
Until next post,
