So I’m graduating college in less than a month. And yes, I am fully freaking out. Like, I don’t know what I’m doing afterward or what’s happening in the month between and I don’t want to leave my friends or my college town even, which I never thought I would say. It’s very scary and it feels like nothing is going right or making any sense, which I absolutely hate. I know things are going to work out, but right now things are really, seriously scary.
This leads me to why I’m writing this blog post. I’m really obsessed with self-care and the whole idea that focusing on yourself will help to ease some of the stress and pain. I don’t know how much it actually works, and maybe this will seem too much like my sad valentine’s day blog post, but I’m going to write about things that make me feel better when I’m especially stressed out. Like I’m pretty sure these next two weeks are going to be the worst of my life, so I will definitely be engaging in some self-care rituals. But!! I’m going to try and be hopeful about life and use my little self-care routines to really feel that calmness and happiness I’m looking for. And I’ll share it with the blog too.

It’s my favorite time of year!!
I’m kidding. I hate this time of year. And I don’t want this post to come off as some sad single girl who always happens to be single at Valentine’s Day and hates it simply because of her perpetual singleness. But, honestly, maybe that’s just what I am now. I’ve become more cynical and sad over the years I think. It really sucks. February 14th can be a really painful reminder. I don’t want to just complain in this post, though. That is against everything I want this to stand for because romantic relationships should not be a defining feature of you as a person, though this world makes it feel like that is all that defines you. And I want this to be a fun positive post, that’s only shitting on Valentine’s Day a little, but also, you know, trying to find your own happiness without a love interest or whatever.
I hate this time of year. I really, really do. But this year, this year!!, I promise I’m not going to cry on this day. I’m not gonna do it. I’m definitely not even crying while I’m writing this post. Nope.
I’m really happy to be starting this new year. I think turning the page to a completely blank one (not the best metaphor in my opinion, but I’ll go with it) feels so refreshing and it’s good to get out of this old year and into the new one. It almost feels like slipping into a bed with freshly cleaned sheets. This is going to be a big year. A stressful year. But hopefully a year that will make me a better person and a happier one as well.
I want to be happy in 2019. That’s probably the main goal of this year. Oh, and to graduate. I guess that’s a good one too.
I mean, it’s definitely very important. Don’t worry, I’m going to graduate, I promise.
