As time goes by

For as long as I could remember, I recall the ages of 6-8 lasting a really long time. To a naïve little girl like me, this meant a year felt like a decade. These times were spent , riding bikes in the island, eating good food , contemplating when I would be a full on adult and get to do  adult things like wear a bra and grow things called boobs. Every time I recall those thoughts, I’m tempted to step into my imaginary time machine and shake some sense into my 7 year old self because being an adult is not fun. At twenty, this comes with perfect timing because last year I began to grasp just how much time is flying by. Like all famous dead or currently living people have stated, “Time is money”. Maybe not physical money, but it’s a precious thing. When you runout, there is not store, which you go to refill it. You’re done. Yesterday, I was doing the usual Sunday scroll through postsecrets.com, when one of my post cards showed up. Long story short about almost a year ago ish, in march, I sent three postcards in and 2/3 have been featured (Go check out post secrets and see if you can find it.)But  this new awakening in the speed of time, woke me up into really investing my time into things that will benefit me  in the long run. This means not wasting time on law and order marathons for 4 hours on a Saturday, or just by doing nothing. Instead, I’m going to take this time I’ve been given to learn and just focus on pursuing things that make me feel content. In addition, I also want get uncomfortable and do a couple things that may scare me, but will promote personal growth. In the end, it’s just one life I’ve been given and I refuse to waste it and just give it my all

I know, I’m almost two weeks late with this post, but the year is still young. I have this tradition, where in the last week of the year, I write myself a letter about my silly aspirations for the new year. In accordance with that, I do another journal reflecting the current year. I’ve been so lazy with journaling, so I wrote half of each letter. I Know I’m mess, but I did end up doing a 2017 to do list in my little pocket journal. Let’s get listing. Feel free to share some of your 2017 goals.

1.Get an industrial piercing✔ (completed)

I made up my mind about this around Christmas, for absolutely not reason. But mainly, I wanted 2017 to be the live like you’re dying tomorrow year for me, because hey that could happen. Why not. I didn’t even know the name of this, I’ve only ever seen it in an upper classman’s ear three or four years ago and my thoughts were “Ehh, why would she do that to her ears”. Little did I know. I’m getting it done on monday , so wish me luck.

  1. Wear my hair out more

I have thick kinky afro hair (4c). I hate the work that goes into it but when I get it right  I love my hair, especially now after figuring how to keep it nice and moisturized. So, come summer I want to wear this bad boy out.

Lastly

  1. Find a great above knee denim skirt ✔

When I saw this picture, it was game over.  Last year, my goal was to wear more causal skirts and boy it has been an adventure. From the time, I ripped one after getting out of a meeting, to the super cute ones, I’ve obtained, skirts are now my wardrobe staples. I’ve been scouting eBay for a nice denim skirt in the same wash. Hopefully, fingers crossed, we’ll be united this year.
