What is up my little writers and readers!? Where the hell have you guys been!? Okay, maybe you’re not to blame since I’ve been SERIOUSLY slacking on updating this bad boy…BUT I have really really good reasons and a bomb excuse!
Life. Has. Been. AMAZING.
Like seriously. I claimed it last New Years Eve that 2016 was going to be my year and it has truly been all that and then some! Amen, Hallelujah! Now some of you may be wondering, “okay…so if life is so great why have you not been sharing with us?” Well, to be completely honest, y’all know I don’t ever like to jinx anything, nor do I really like to brag. But this sh*t right here, is about to be all about the glo up! And if you don’t know what that means…google it.🙂 Now let’s get to it.
#MOOD. When I tell you that this has been one of the most happiest times of my life, I’m not even exaggerating. I believe that I have finally, truly found the answer to my own happiness. Which is one heck of an accomplishment in itself. For those of you that have been following me for quite some time now, you know that I have been through some pretty rough moments. Ones that have always weighed heavy on my heart and truly had an impact on my daily mood. From self-confidence, to dating, to work, to friends…these past few years of my life have been an emotional roller coaster. ONE THAT I AM ACTUALLY VERY THANKFUL FOR NONETHELESS. Because without everything that I have been through, I wouldn’t have gotten to the place I’m at today. Right here, right now, on my couch, drinking wine and eating pasta (don’t tell my trainer).
YUM! That transition was not planned, but whoop there it is – it worked. So yes, speaking of YUM…this is a word that with deep DEEP sadness I have not used lately the way that I used to. BUT I AIN’T EVEN MAD. Okay maybe a little, cause I would kill for a brownie right now to keep it lit. So if you couldn’t guess, this is another huge success that I have accomplished over the past two years (truly, the past year) – my weight loss and personal health. Now if you follow me on snapchat you’ve probably been a witness to my workout documentation of my body transformation. If not, than here is a little photo of where I currently stand fitness (body-selfie) wise.
I know you see those abdominal indents. I know you do! Thank you, thank you very much. I knew they were under all that fluff somewhere. So, yes, I have been busting my booty in the gym and eating healthier for quite some time. But ya girl still has some work to do. It’s coming, just wait on it.
PROGRESS and PATIENCE. Two things that go hand in hand when it comes to my work ethic. I have always been an extremely patient person in the work place (actually just in life in general lol). Since my background is in advertising and all things creative, it’s lowkey in my soul to have patience due to the billions of edits, feedback, stages, approvals, etc. etc. etc. that take place in the creative world. That being said, my patience has excelled since college but anyways, my point is I just recently was promoted at work and could not be happier! I’ve been wanting this for a while now and knew it would come one day, but I just continued to focus and work on bettering myself and teaching myself more and more so that I could handle whatever was thrown my way. WOO!
SELF TAUGHT SHAWTY. Last but not least, I’ve been working suuuuuuuper hard on building my creative portfolio lately, from KopyWrite to KJoiKaptures (same on IG), I really have been trying to venture out and continue to teach myself tools and tricks with a click. Being that outside of a couple of photography classes in high school and college I pretty much taught myself everything I know about photography – thanks to my advertising background, I learned to edit. But when it comes to social media and PR, I think I took one or two courses in COMM in college, but everything else I taught myself by reading and from experience. Which leads me to the point of this – I really want to begin to write more about what I do and how I do it. If you know me, you know I’ve been recently obsessed with YouTube and tutorials and such. In watching countless videos I became inspired to take what I know and share it with people because you never know who is watching, you never know who is reading, and you never know who you could end up helping make a difference in the world. What do y’all think?
That’s all for now – I’ll be back tomorrow with another fun post about more updates, a bit of beauty and a bit of booty (just kidding, but thought that would bring you back tomorrow). #thirsttrapteaser
