What I Learned in 2017
Hi friends! Well, we have survived our first week of the new year! It's crazy that it's already 2018.. I'm still getting used to writing that.
2017 was definitely a crazy year. For me, I think it was one of my hardest years, especially toward the end. Once I graduated college back in May, I joined the thousands of other graduates in the job hunt. It was not easy and honestly stressed me out to the extreme. Luckily, I had my job at Disney and my internship in public relations to pay the bills and give me more experience. But, I couldn't survive off the hourly wages at Disney and the work of an unpaid intern. So, I kept applying for jobs until the perfect job fell in my lap. I had to make one of the hardest decisions of my life - quitting Disney.
This all taught me that things do happen for a reason. Even though I had to leave a job that was fun, albeit stressful at times, and leave some amazing friends, it gave me the opportunity to focus on what I really wanted to do - public relations. I know have been working with this agency for about four months now and I adore this job! Honestly, I wake up and am excited to work because I love my job.
A lot was thrown my way in 2017 and it was hard to not let it get the best of me. I won't go into the boring details of what happened, but things really do happen for a reason. I was knocked down so many times, but I kept getting up. Honestly, I also learned that I have some AMAZING people supporting me. I couldn't have gotten through 2017 without them.
2017 wasn't all bad though. I did get an amazing job and met some pretty amazing people. And, I finally started blogging and have learned more about myself. Thanks you all of you for sticking with me as I get this blog started and here's to a great 2018!
