2018 was a blast, it was quite a good year. Every year has its ups as well as downs. I went through a lot of changes, some good, some bad.

School and my interests changed. I realized how to create a healthy balance between education and my social life. I discovered some of my passions; volleyball, art, blogging, and pursued them even further.

One highlight was volleyball. I was part of an amazing team of girls, and we made it so far. At the beginning of the season we were falling apart, losing the majority of our games, but we put in the hard work and effort and it payed off. We placed third in our city, fifth on the island and even went to provincials. It was the first time in history that a volleyball team from my school made it that far.

Every year has its downs, my friend group changed and of course drama came along with that. But everything worked out in the end and I am so happy now. I have the best friends I could ever ask for. They make me feel happy and more like myself. I’m so grateful for them.

But we made it and are entering 2019. And its gonna be a good one.

hello, on my instagram i asked you guys to give me some questions so you can get to know me better! i got a ton of great questions and i can’t wait to answer them. if you have been following my blog for a while, you would know that i posted a q & a  a couple months ago. if you would like to read that, you can find it here! anyways, lets get onto the questions!

girl.who.blogs   asks –

what  inspires your blog posts?  –  i am inspired by my fellow bloggers! everyday, i look forward to reading their posts. i am also inspired by photos on instagram and pinterest, as well images in magazines

 

what’s your favourite(s) kind of flower(s)? 🌸  –  i really, really like peonies, they are just so gorgeous and smell amazing. i also love roses, daisies, and daffodils. i have a post about flowers, you can read it here. ooops shameless self promo…Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.12.06 AM

 

 

rafstheticallypleasing   asks –

what is your zodiac sign and do you think you match up to it?   –  i just checked and i am sagittarius. i was never really into horoscopes, but i find them interesting!

some sagittarius traits are :  likes travelling, optimistic, impatient, seeks freedom, loves exploring, aren’t afraid to take risks, and are creative.

i guess i do have a bunch of these traits! i pretty much have all of these characteristics.

lovecarlyallison  asks –

best advice for anything!!  –  i’m going to talk about blogging! about a year ago, i wasn’t happy with where my blog was at. i didn’t enjoy the posts i put up, feeling like my blog didn’t reflect the “real me.” i was posting things that i knew you guys would like, not what i would like. i took a break from blogging, and when i returned, i started to post things i was proud of. now, i am finally happy with my blog and its content! i enjoy writing blog posts and i feel more like myself. moral of the story, don’t be afraid to be yourself and be unique! don’t feel like you have to put up certain posts just to impress people.

 

greta.josephine   asks –

what is your dream travel destination?  –  i would love to travel to croatia. i’ve been looking at so many photos of the gorgeous country. the beaches look stunning, the food looks amazing, and the people look so friendly! and of course i would love to visit australia, france, india and iceland again! theres so many places out there!

 

wontonabbey  asks –

quotes you live by?  –  here are a few…

karenwodstrup    asks –

if you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?  –  if i could change one thing about the world, i would get rid of hunger. every ten seconds, a child dies of starvation. it breaks my heart knowing that this happens all around the world.

 

dominiquereneemodeling  asks –

whats your favourite things to do in the summer?  –  my favourite thing to do in the summer is to hang out with friends! i love going down to the beach and having a pic nic with my best friends!!

 

wildslifeblog  asks –

elle.boatley  asks –

what is your dream job?  –  in the future, i would love to be a doctor of some sorts. maybe a neurologist. however, i am also interested in design, art and fashion, so i don’t know where i’ll end up!
