My Vision Board Is Making Me Very Emotional


Reworking or adding to and taking away things from your vision board can sure make you emotional. I am always talking about vision boards. Always. I love them. When I started them a few years ago, I had no idea how influential they would be on my life. I am almost on the verge of tears looking at some of the things that I have done and finished and some of the things I have yet to do and am steadily praying for to happen.  The tiny cork board is filled, basically too crowded for words, with post it notes, phrases, and pictures. Sometimes I wonder will I ever find love, will I move to NYC and be successful, will I ever fulfill my hopes, dreams, and desires? Something inside of me will always say no, but then something inside of me will always say yes. Not just because I pray for these things to happen, but because I walk by my vision board each day, and see the things that I have achieved and the things I will achieve. Photo from here.

I Finally Did It… I Graduated From Grad School!!!

I was super busy last week. I went to San Francisco with my parents to graduate from the Academy of Art University with a MFA in Fashion Journalism. I am exhausted and excited! Thanks for all of your support during these long three years. In that time, my blog went from a hobby to my final graduate thesis project. Now I can relax, try to get a job, or try for my second masters or Ph.D. Who knows what the future will bring?!?!?

Caution Detour Ahead!

The past week or so has been rough.

  1. I’ve been sick since Valentine’s Day. I feel better, but I still have a lingering, nagging cough.
  2. I did advisement for classes, and it turned out pretty wretched. I have to take classes and do my mid-point review this summer. I don’t have any classes scheduled for next fall because the other class I need isn’t being offered this summer or fall. The other classes I need to take later on are on hold because I can’t even try to take them until I pass my mid-point review.
  3. So now I am probably not moving to New York City this summer, or any time this year.

I am trying to think positively. I am trying to tell myself that it is all for the best… etc… etc. I guess I just need to be patient and let life happen as it is supposed to happen, but I feel like I am missing out on certain opportunities. Everything happens for a reason. I just hope these setbacks are happening for a good reason.

My So-Called Life

Hey Guys! I know it has been awhile since I gave you all the inside scoop on school. I switched majors from fashion merchandising to fashion journalism. I am taking 3 fun classes.
  • Intro to Journalism: I am learning how to write like a journalist.
  • Style Icons in Fashion and Media: I am learning about the style icons that have influenced the fashion world.
  • Intro to Styling: I am learning to be a stylist…YAY! Fun!
These classes and their projects are very challenging and come with a lot of work, but I feel like I am really learning some great information. Come December I will have already finished my first year in grad school at Academy of Art University and I LOVE IT!

I feel like even though school is tough, I can accomplish anything.
