Thanksgiving was wonderful! I got to spend the day with my boyfriend (pictured above), and I met his family. The day was full of food and fun. I truly enjoyed the whole day, and I’m happy I got to spend it with family … mine and his.
I spent Black Friday shopping with my sister and niece, and I tried Chipotle for the first time. It was delicious!
I know that’s a brief explanation of my Thanksgiving, but it was great!

Here recently, I’ve just really been enjoying my life. I’ve been spending lots of time with my best friend. We’ve gone out for coffee and drinks, and we’ve spent time relaxing and catching up on our busy lives. In other news, I’ve been trying to read more books and magazines lately … well, when I find the time. It’s relaxing. Other than that, I’ve just been busy with work and spending as much time as I can with my sweet boyfriend. (Not sure if I ever mentioned him on here yet. I’ll update you guys on that some other time!)

I apologize for being a bad blogger and leaving you guys hanging. I have been beyond busy, but I’m making up for it by including tons of photos in this post.
I should start off by saying that I have a full-time job now! I interviewed for a design position with the paper I was interning for, and I got the job! Since taking the position, I now have more responsibilities. I love my job, and I’m excited about all of the new projects I’ve been getting to work on. I’ve done a front page and also a front-page package. I’m scheduled to do more front pages in the future. I also did an illustration that ran with my name on it. Very exciting, since designers hardly get credited for their designs.
In other news, I went blonde for awhile (see picture below). It was very fun being a blonde, but I went back to brunette this past weekend (see adventure photo).
On the dating front: I’ve had my share of ups and downs. As you know, I dated Jon who seemed amazing and things ended sadly. It took me longer than I’d like to admit to get over that relationship, but I learned a lot. After that, I had fun going out with friends and enjoying being young. Maybe I had a little too much fun! Nothing bad, just no downtime for myself. I dated another guy (see camping trip photos). We had a lot of fun together, but I was still hung up on Jon and didn’t give the new guy a chance to prove himself. He was very sweet, but I was just trying to find a replacement. I feel very badly that I didn’t give the new guy a proper chance to date me. We’re still friends which is good because he is a great guy. Who knows what the future holds!
After the camping trip, I poured myself into my work and then got the job! Once I got the job, it was time for me to find a man … or so I thought. I’ve talked to a bunch of different guys, yet none seem to be just right. Either they want a relationship and I don’t or vice versa. Things move quick these days, and I don’t like wasting time. Maybe that’s my problem. And I’ve dealt with my fair share of rumors. Apparently these days, when talking to someone, other people automatically think that those two people are dating. Not true. I’d just like to say that I wish people would stop judging other people based on what they “think” is happening. Things may appear different than they actually are, and you don’t know things for sure unless you are the one experiencing them. Enough ranting!
I feel that I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m ready to love again. For awhile there, my heart was so broken, or lets just say pummeled, that I didn’t know if I still believed in love. But I assure you that I believe in love again, and I hope I’ll be ready for it when it’s ready to find me. But until then, I’m just going to be me and enjoy life.
In the friend zone: My best friend and I have become much closer lately. We hang out at least once a week, and we always have so much to talk about. We are always swapping life experiences, and she always has the best advice for me even if I don’t always want to hear it. I have to thank her for listening to my many “boy troubles” and always helping me get through them. She is truly the best friend I have ever had!

I’ve been trying to find inspiration lately. Since I work at a newspaper, I’ve been reading (actually, just looking at) more newspapers lately. I really love the design of the New York Times. Some other things that have inspired me lately are these new sunglasses I got on sale for $6, this awesome Coach purse I got and this wonderful smelling candle. I love feeling inspired and excited!

A couple weeks ago, I finally received my diploma. It was such a great feeling to open the package and finally see it and hold it! I worked so hard for that very expensive piece of paper. I feel so proud of what I have accomplished. I’m very excited for my future, especially now that I have my diploma. There are no limits. I will accomplish whatever I put my mind to.
