My blog has been on the back burner quite a bit this year. I haven't posted nearly as much as I should have, which sucks because I love going through my old posts for picture memories. Lots of 2012 went undocumented but at least there's Instagram! Looking back, I can only recall so much of my days - my posts have been so much less personal than years prior and is something I plan on changing in the new year.
It's almost embarrassing that I am choking back tears right now going through my Instagram feed. Every other picture is a shock, like, "whoa, that happened this year?" or "hey, that was only a few months ago!" You see, I've loved and loss so many old and new people in my life. I'm not gonna get into it, but each month cultivated a new mindset for me and each picture serves as a reminder. At this point, I am so emotionally drained, weirdly happy, and surprisingly rediscovering myself. My hair has changed a handful of times; I quit two jobs to get to my dream job now; and I'm finally living in LA. Needless to say, I can't regret anything this year - as poor as some of my judgment calls have been, it has helped me grow so much as a person and gave me courage to do great things I otherwise would have ignored for the sake of being comfortable.
I emotionally dyed my hair jet black (I hated it and am so glad it faded after a month)
