GoodBye 2014 !

          Its the final afternoon of 2014. Looking back on the past year, have you accomplished the "resolutions" you set at the begining of January ? How has the past 12 months treated you ? Was it a good year or are you glad its over and looking forward to starting a new year ?

         Personally, this year has brought alot of ups and downs, as well as opened my eyes up to alot. I've cried and laughed, and feel that I have grown alot in the past year. I will say though, I am definately glad 2014 is over, and looking forward to 2015 more than anything. I have big plans for the new year that will better life for me and my beautiful daughter, Mikaela. 

           This year, many "friendships" have come to an end that I never thought would ever end, but I'm not sad over it. Sometimes, one door has to close in order to open another. I've realized, not everyone who you consider to be a friend is truly a friend to you, and that doesn't make them a bad person, it just means that your time in each other's lives has come to an end. I really don't hate any of the people who have left my life, whether it be by their choice or mine, I just don't have time for drama, negativity and fakeness in my life. I'd much rather just go our separate ways and cherish the memories of the good times during our friendships, however long, or short, they may have been. But this time, the end is truly THE END, there's no going back and trying to salvage friendships that were never meant to be. I do wish them all the happiness in the world, truly. I'm just done trying to make other people happy, its time to make ME happy. If you don't accept me as I am, then I'm sorry, that's your issue, I won't change for anyone. 

      I have also made some AMAZING new friends this year, many of whom are a huge part of my life, and I couldn't imagine not having them in my life. Its funny how life works sometimes. I guess the saying "You win some, you lose some" really has some truth to it. Its like for every friend I lost in the past year, I've gained 3 in their place. 

    School is going really well for me, well, grades wise anyhow. I had to take a hiatus for awhile because of my depression acting up, and because of some stress I was going through, but I'll be returning to school in the new year, Focusing on obtaining my degree in both Interior Design, and Forensic Sciences. I know, I know, the two don't have anything to do with each other. They are two careers that I've always wanted to do since I was a child, and I intend to follow my dreams. I want to be a positive role model for my daughter, and prove to her that it doesn't matter how old you are, that if you put your heart and mind in to something, all your dreams can come true ! 

     I have other plans for my life that I will set in motion in 2015. I don't want to say them all right now, I have to put more thought in to them first, but little by little, things will be changing around here, for the better. 

    One such plan I can tell you about, is I am starting a new youtube channel tomorrow. For awhile I've had 2 (well technically 3), I have my main one, which is the one I use to upload videos that I have recorded with my family (family videos) but I rarely upload on that one anymore, then the other 2 I had, were a channel I used to post nail related things, like nail art tutorials, product reviews, etc.... and the third, was one I was using to upload product reviews of other stuff (like tablets, etc...) DIY videos, rant videos, "tag" videos, challenges, vlogs, etc.... But it was hard to keep up with both of them, so, I decided to delete both those accounts, and I'll be starting over from fresh with a completely new channel, where I'll be uploading a mix of pretty much everything, so that when I finally go to get sponsored and start getting paid for my videos, like many youtubers do, I can have an array of sponsors, (or companies sending me products to review), and not just limit myself to one type of sponsor or video type.  

        Well, I've mumbled on and on long enough, and its almost time for me to go start making the last supper of 2014 for my family. Tonight, the plan is cuddle on the couch with my princess, watch some cartoons, and then watch Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve on ABC, and watch the ball drop on tv with my dad, 95 yr old grandmother, and Mikaela. My daughter is excited, she gets to stay up tonight instead of going to bed at her usual bedtime of 8pm (she's 4).

I will end this here, and say that I wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year. 

        Enjoy your evening with your family and friends, and stay safe. If you're going to be drinking tonight, PLEASE, DO NOT drink and drive ! Have someone drive you home, or come pick you up, grab a taxi, take a bus, walk, just get home safe and unharmed. 

See you all in the new year, and I promise.....I'll be doing my best to post more on here and keep you updated more about how my life is going.
