Life Update – Summer 2022!

Hey everybody!

It feels so good to be back and writing again! I feel like I haven’t written a post in forever, so I thought it would only make sense to post a little life update since it feels like so much stuff has been going on!

For starters, I recently finished up my academic school year in Seattle and wow, I had such a great year! Transferring was difficult because I was going into a whole new major and moving back across the country, but I am beyond happy that I decided to move back to the west coast! I live only 25 minutes from my mom which is amazing because when I lived in New York I only got to see her when I had breaks. Now I can go home and visit her and, of course, my cats whenever I want which I’m so grateful for.

My major has been so much fun! In case you didn’t know, I am currently getting a degree in communications and media with a specialization in journalism. It’s so much different than when I was studying the business of fashion, but I honestly enjoy it more because a lot of my core journalism classes allow me to write frequently which is one of my favorite things. I also recently landed a social media internship with a community organization in Seattle! I’ve been creating content for them for the past couple of months and it’s been fulfilling.

I have so many plans for the summer! I am currently in Portland with my boyfriend, Matt, and we’re staying with his family for a little bit over a week! He is going on a cross country road trip with a few of our friends at the end of the month, and I get to join them on the west coast part of the trip. I’m so excited because he will meet my dad and stepmom for the first time and I also get to show them around California! We’ve been dating for a little over six months now and it has been nothing short of amazing!

When I’m not traveling, I’ll be spending a good portion of the summer working which will be nice because it’s always good to have a source of income and also gain experience! I’m going to stay at my mom’s place for the next couple of months and then I move into my first apartment at the end of the summer! I’m very excited for what’s to come.

Do you guys have any fun plans for the summer? Let me know in the comments below!

It was so good catching up with you guys! I promise I’ll be posting a lot more since I have a ton more free time. The next post should be up next week!

Talk to you soon!
