RECAP | Where Did I Go?


So you may have noticed that I had dropped off the face of my social media for the past few months, really after October 2017 I basically stopped completely. I closed the door of my office room and left all the packages in there unopened. I didn't mean to but I guess that's just how life goes sometimes.

I had just started a part time retail job at the mall and then a few months after that in November 2017 I was offered a full time job somewhere else which basically became my life. Go to work, come home and go to bed. Repeat.

My best friend, Payton, and I decided that we just simply couldn't do it anymore and that we were going to quit our jobs and open our own online consignment store which we launched mid August 2018. We called it Ampersand Consignment. Ampersand being the name for the "&" sign because we believe clothes shouldn't just end with one person, they deserve an "and, and, and", a continuation.

In September I ended my seven year relationship. I haven't said much about it anywhere, and I won't be other than this, but for me it was just time and these things happen. I'd been constantly living in a cycle of unhappiness with myself and it had to change. After my break up, I met a guy and started dating him. Although it was sudden sometimes you just have to close your eyes and jump because you never know what's going to happen, despite if people think it was too soon or not. They don't know my life or how I feel about anything, and so their opinions really don't matter much.

In November I finally changed my hair back to how it should be, my 1/4 white and 3/4 black split hair. I couldn't be happier and I feel so much more like myself now, it feels great. I plan to keep this for well, forever I guess. This will be the fourth(?) time I've gone back to it so clearly I'm a fan. I had been growing it out since a little past August 2016 and it was finally long enough and healthy now for me to be happy with it. But don't worry, I still plan to be my fabulous self and put my extensions back in for a little extra length and a lot of extra volume.

And now it's the beginning of December 2018. I'm 12 days away from my unfortunate 24th birthday which I'm hopefully going to just glaze over, 28 days away from a brand new year, and i'm happier than I've ever been. This year has been a roller coaster for sure but I finally feel like I just might be going in the right direction and finding happiness finally.
