Hello lovelies! Today I wanted to get a little personal with this post and talk about something that’s a big part of my life at the moment. As you may or may not know, I’m currently a college student and I just completed my second year at my university. College has been a rollercoaster ride for me mentally, emotionally, and physically, but it’s what has made me into the person I am so far, and I’m grateful for that.
There were a lot of lessons learned, good and bad. I learned a lot in my classes and outside of school which led me to gain more life experience. I discovered things about myself and went through some heartaches. Friends came and went and I came to the realization some people aren’t who they seem to be. At some points, I became lost and wasn’t sure of where I wanted to go in my life.
And this is what life is. It’s never going to be a smooth and happy ride all the time. Whether we like it or not, there are always going to be things that get in the way of our happiness. It’s up to us to deal with it in the best way possible because we can do one of two things: let it break us or use it as something that can make us stronger. That’s why I believe in enjoying being happy to the fullest because you never know when you’ll lose it.
I guess the biggest lesson I learned in the last year is to not take happiness for granted. It’s something that I continue to work at and I think it’s something we should all work on.
With that said, college has also been a lot of fun. Today, I wanted to focus on creating a visual representation of what my second year of college was like because even during the tough times, there were still lots of happy moments and I want to share that through this post. So here we go!

So these are photos from the major events of my past school year and as you can see, it was a lot. I actually can’t believe that I did all of those things in the last year; some of it feels like it happened in my first year of college instead. I’m so thankful for the memories I’ve been able to make in college so far and I’m so excited for the memories to come. ☺ If you made it this far, thanks for reading and I’ll see you lovelies next week for more posts!
