Hey everyone! It has been a while since I’ve posted on the blog and I’d like to start by apologizing. I became unexpectedly busy for the last two months of the year and there was a lot for me to get done.
But now it’s January 2018, a time for people to reflect and make plans for themselves over the next year. As someone who always seeks ways of self-improvement, I find New Years Resolutions to be an exciting time because I make goals in alignment with who I want to become by the end of the year.

I managed to start a Creative Writing course, start my University applications and I'm looking forward to what the future brings this next school year. Read More
