Almost New Year's Resolutions
Today is my "little" brother's twentieth birthday (Happy Birthday Ethan)! We are exactly four and a half years apart, which means in six months I will be twenty-five. I can't believe he's twenty, let alone that I will be five years from thirty. So, today is one of those times I reflect over my life thus far and think about what I want my life to look like at twenty-five.
This is my own version of a New Year's resolutions list, a month and a half early. I like to give myself extra time to get it done, because life happens and never goes to plan.
1. Make a Career Oriented Move: It's fairly obvious that fashion is my, for lack of better word, passion. My goal is to be a key fashion stylist one day. However, at the moment I live in an area right outside Richmond, Virginia, that's not exactly a fashion capital or anywhere close to being one. This resolution was going to be a reality in 2018, because I was supposed to move to London to attend the London College of Fashion, but due to life, mainly a lack of 36,000 dollars, that will not be happening. I have to restart and make new plans to achieve my career goals. The first one being, moving to a place where my industry is prominent.
2. Grow My Self-Confidence: I've spent the majority of this year doubting myself and my ability to succeed at what I love doing. I want to get to a point where I feel like I have come into my own, and not in a perpetual state of hoping things work out. I would love just a little bit of solidity.
