Advent Calendar Challenge Day Seventeen
2018 was a pretty good year for me. I didn’t do much out of the ordinary, but I did do a few things that I was proud of.
Continued my Career Path
Moving forward with my goals is crucial in order to meet them, and I did a great job with this over the past year. I have taken school seriously and transferred what I learned into creating a professional image in order to start building credibility and my skills. I never thought I’d be able to start actually working (in a way) while still in college, but this year I have started a blog, made a professional website and social media accounts, and even submitted some of my work to literary magazines! Let’s hope that last one pays off in 2019 when I find out the results of putting my work out there.
Formed a Band
Although I have been in a few bands over the course of my career, Pure North is definitely the one I think has the most potential. A band with two basses is pretty uncommon and I believe that Derek and I are putting the work in this year to actually go out and rock the music world next year. We’re not rushing it in order to do it right, but you’ll definitely get to see Pure North in action in 2019!
Held an Event for The Pretty Project
I always dreamed of holding an event for my body positivity initiative, and it finally came true in 2018! Derek and I met a variety of people for photoshoot sessions and talked with them about their interests and unique definitions of beauty. I’m very happy that I got to expand my program even more in 2018, and I look forward to what 2019 will bring!
Earned a 4.0
This would be my proudest accomplishment to date. Although I do not know if I have a 4.0 for my first semester of sophomore year yet, I was very proud to be on the Trustees’ List for my Freshman year for earning a 4.0 GPA both semesters in a row. While grades aren’t the most important thing in the world by far, maintaining solid grades will allow me to pursue my learning in the graduate school of my choice should I choose to follow that path. It’s essential to me that I end up somewhere I’m happy, and good grades definitely won’t hurt to get me there in a time where graduate schools are very competitive, especially for writing.
