reflection and goal setting

Hello all of you, dear readers! I hope that you had a splendid holiday season and I hope that you will continue to have a fabulous new year!

Christmas has passed and soon so will the entirety of 2013, and I can’t really say that I’m sad to see it go. This has been an interesting year, full of ups and downs but most of all, it’s been full of growth and resolution. I started the year as a completely different person, and I’m happy with who I’ve become, but there is still room for improvement (*sigh* isn’t there always? Nothing’s ever really complete…).

It’s in these times of the end and new beginnings that I get slightly introspective. I look at all of the intricacies of my life and what has and could have been, and I take them for what they are. Missed chances are just chances that I may, one day, get to correct. I have learned about myself more this year than any other, and for that I am thankful.

Personal Style Icon #1

Call me a nerd if you want to, but I will wholeheartedly admit to my undying love of anything Nancy Drew. Seriously, I’m obsessed. I have all of the books, I play the PC games (go ahead, judge…), I own The Official Nancy Drew Handbook (Skills, Tips, and Life Lessons from Everyone’s Favorite Girl Detective) and, yes, I also own the 2007 film starring Emma Roberts as the titan-haired sleuth herself!

Why am I telling you all of this, you may be asking… And as any good sleuth, I’m going to find you the answer. To be honest, this task isn’t very hard as I’m the one who holds the answers in the first place. … Does that make me the villain in this situation? Hmm… Regardless, I’m telling you, dear readers, all about my love affair with a teenaged fictional character for one reason– Nancy Drew is the first spotlight in my new series: Personal Style Icons! These PSIs will be posted every few weeks (or whenever I feel like, really… Because when have I actually stuck to any sort of schedule here, right?) and I will post entries on whose styles I admire. That being said, let’s get cracking!

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas

I don’t know what it is about this year, but I’m really excited for the holidays! The day after Halloween I started playing Christmas music (much to my friend’s dismay) and I honestly haven’t stopped. I just don’t know, but it makes me really happy! Anyway, since ’tis the season, after all, I figured that I would share the spirit with my lovely readers! I’m going to give you a few of my favorite Christmas Time things, which coincidentally also happen to be some of my favorite things in general! Might as well dive into it!

Apologies and Promises.

Ugh. Guys… I’m horrible. Really, I am. I’ve left you hanging for TWO MONTHS and I’ve been feeling so bad about it! Things just got really hectic with school as it’s currently finals week and my workload got really intense! I have thought about making blog posts but I either never had an idea, or I never had time! 

This is the promise part. I promise not to blog every single day. It’s a daunting task and I DO have a life outside of my computer (shocking, I know, but what are you gonna do about it, right?). I will make you this promise, however: I promise to write a post at least once a week. At least. Since it’s the beginning of winter break next week, I may just bring my computer along with me to my family’s house where I’m staying and just brainstorm. Is there anything that you guys would like me to write about in particular?

Anyway, I bid you adieu and I will write another post sometime before Thursday!
See you around, lovelies!
