Finally an Update + Happy New Year!

HI EVERYONE! (long time no see!)

Grand Oasis Cancun

It's 2015 and I am alive!!!!! 
I know it's been forever since my last update!!! In fact my last post was in August 2014, right before I was heading to college. I'm looking back on my old post right now and the promises I had made to keep up with blogging once I was in college and ohhh how I failed at that. I got caught up in college and just adapting to everything. It was really a different world up there. Everything was new and while I had fun, I constantly found myself drained of energy for no reason. (may have been the business and crazy sleep schedule and my insomnia....) I'm on the last 1-2 days of my winter break right now and I find myself really missing blogging. I'm going to try my best this semester on to keep up with my blogging! 

A lot has happened since my last blog post.... I'm not going to go into too much detail right now on everything, but I will give you highlights and promise to go into more details later!

cancun Vacation
A picture of my vacation in Cancun (which I will explain later) 
  •  I completely my first semester of college and ended with a great GPA as well as chosen my major for sure.. which will be elementary education!
  • I'm in a RELATIONSHIP with an amazing guy and we are almost 5 months strong! <3
  • I've learned to live with a roommate and this semester I *may* just have a huge single room...
  • I made lots of new friends in college and learned a lot more. 
  • I did a mystery room in NY (so much fun!) 
  • I went to CANCUN a few months ago. (this is huge.. first time out of the country since my birth haha)
  • Swam with a dolphin, kinda conquered my fear of water, ate a ghost pepper (random I know) and much more...
Until my next blog post (which will come I promise!), enjoy some photos from the remainder of last year and the first few weeks of 2015!

As you can tell, quite a bit has happened in the past few months! I feel like I've changed a lot in just half a year. College really changes a person!!! I'll be trying my best to get back in the blogging world over the next few months!  I may be limited to just using my phone to take photos, but to be honest, my phone takes some pretty nice pictures! Not as good as a DSLR, but still decentI'm pretty busy next semester (I got a job!!) but I'm making time to blog! 

What have you guys been up to lately? I miss checking out all your blogs!! I will be playing catch up right now!

  10. I had been wondering what had happened to you! Great to know that your life has been so exciting; it seems like you went from 50 miles an hour to 90. And so nice that you are in a relationship. I really hope that this year will get even better and will be filled with success and happy days.

I'm so glad you're enjoying your life and it sure sounds super busy and fun down there in the States! I can't believe that's your first time out of the country (though U.S. does have a lot of different awesome states for vacation, I would travel around within first :P)- come visit Canada soon and don't forget sweaters!:P Also, a big congrats to your new relationship~ you definitely sound like a happy gal, and I hope the best for you!!! Greaat job on that GPA! :D Can't wait for your new posts!! X

  14. Hello hello, Mindy! So good to see you again--don't worry, you're not the only one who disappeared once college started.

    I can definitely tell you've learned and grown much these past few months. Way to pull off a great GPA and find a fulfilling direction--you'll be great with the kids. I'm also so happy that you're in a loving relationship and you got to travel this year! Cancun looks beautiful. The Korean BBQ really makes me hungry and I'm curious about the mystery room. What a project!

    Wishing you the best second semester :)

      thank you so much! I feel like college really has given me more independence! It's so much fun but a lot of responsiblity! Cancun was amazing and the Mystery room.. You have to try it!!! It's fun if you love solving puzzles!

      I wish you a great semester too!!!
