2018 Lifestyle:

 Hey what is up hello! 2018 was a super interesting year. Every year I am like "IT WAS WILD", but 2018 I learned so much about myself. Which 2016 I was so super single and I was doing every single thing in the world to make sure I "found myself". And 2018 I really worked on myself despite being part of a partnership. I 100% think that you need to love yourself before you love someone else. In 2017 I knew I truly knew who I was and I appreciated who I was. I also knew I would be a growing human. I have always been in the boat that no matter what single or dating you need to grow as a human, and you can not find who you are in another person. That is my soap box on relationships do not make you happy, only you can make yourself happy.

I always say my blog audience is my "best friends" that whoever reads this is what I would write to my sister. I want to say all of this before I get into the nitty gritty of my yearly favorites!

Stress Management// This year I actually seeked out help on how to deal with stress. You are not taught how to deal with real stress your whole life. And sometimes you just need to talk to a 3rd party to get what you are thinking, and organize your thoughts. I would recommend to anyone to seek help if they need it.  You can be sad or depressed and not have depression. You can feel stressed and feel anxiety and not have anxiety. You still need to know how to sort our those feelings. 

Alex// As always there are not enough words to express how lucky I am to have this guy by my side. We could be half way across the world and Alex would be my constant. In fact he made me watch the lost episode called "constant". Alex would always be himself no matter what and I am so lucky for that. 

Doha// I do not think I would have 2018 except for Doha. When I think of 2018 I will think of Doha. It was exciting to go to a country that is so far ways from home. 11,000 miles to be exact. 

Saying Good-Bye//Leaving for the middle east was something I did nawt want to do what so ever, but ya got to go what ya got to go. Saying bye was so hard, it was bitter sweet, but probably the hardest thing I have ever done.

Moving// I moved twice this year, and it was horrible equally both times! I have nothing to say about this but I will forever hire movers. Also I have so much stuff, I got rid of so much stuff, and I still will be getting rid of more. 

Blogging// Blogging was so fun this year, I think I am getting too much into my groove. I am going to go more into this, but my goal for next year it to create better content. This year though it was fun working with brands, growing my platforms and learning more about this blogger world.

GymShark// I noticed I was only wearing business casual or sweats, but I was buying all these going out clothes all the time that I never wore. This year I stopped buying going out clothes because I never wore them, and started buying athelisure clothing. Which I am so happy, because my life is so much more cozy. 

Michigan// I missed being "home" so bad. I forgot how much I love Michigan, and I loved spending time with my family. I think we went to happy hour like every other day when I was home. 

Staying In// I was so sick of traveling this year, I lived for weekend I had nothing to do. Also in 2018, for the most part I was in a distance relationship, so when I did have a weekend off it was totally what I wanted to. I remember I got some mac n cheese BBQ nachos after work on a Friday, got some wine, watched a movie, slept in for the first time in MONTHS. And it was literally the best day of just hanging out. Yes, I love doing stuff and hanging out with people, but this was so nice. 

Old Good Friends// I got to see my best friend from Kindergarten! It was so fun to catch up and remember the good old days. ALSO I got to hang out with my college friends! We have not hung out in about a year and a half, and it was exciting to see each other and go back to East Lansing.
