2018 Recap

Wow has it been a crazy year. 2018 has been one of the most memorable and eventful years of my life that I can remember. So many things happened-some good and some not so good. I think that I can definitely say I have grown a lot throughout this year and have been impacted a lot as well.

As the year winds down I wanted to actually write down all of the eventful things that happened this year. I enjoy doing this so that I can appreciate what the year brought and I can look back on it in the years to come. I wanted to focus on the good events though as I would rather not remember some negative aspects of the year so that is what I am doing today. Month by month I will be recapping what happened in my life this year.

January - I finished up my seasonal retail job and started my second semester of senior year in high school (that is really crazy to me considering I just finished my first semester of college).

February - I started my first social media and marketing internship with a goat yoga company and had one conference call as well as a meetup for that.

March - I started another social media and marketing internship at a coworking/daycare spot, had an event and a couple meetups for my internships, spent spring break with my grandparents, our cat Cosmo had his 2nd birthday, had my senior pictures taken and went to a circus.

April - I had my 18th birthday, did my first photoshoot, and went to a soccer game with my friend.

May - I stayed with my grandparents for a few days, taught Sunday school one Sunday for the children, finished my last day of high school, launched my business (Adorned With Delight), had Senior Sunday at church, traveled to my hometown for my friend's graduation and party, and went to a concert in San Antonio for memorial day.

June - I graduated from high school in Houston, went to our 3-day family reunion in Louisiana, my aunt stayed with us for about a week, saw a concert-type performance at church, went tubing down the river, and had my 3-year blogiversary.

July - I started delivering for Doordash, my family had a vacation week where we went to amusement parks and water parks such as SeaWorld, Aquatica, and Fiesta Texas, went with my friend and stayed in Galveston for a week, "acted" in a marketing video shoot for a local pottery business, and spent a weekend in Dallas with my aunt.

August - I went to Schlitterbahn with my family, finalized my registration for college courses, started my first semester of college, and started attending a young adult Bible study at church.

September - I became a small group leader for the youth ministry at church, our family came into town, and I hosted my first giveaway for the business.

October - My family and I traveled back to our hometown and I helped out with the Fall Fest at our church.

November - I voted for the first time, stayed a weekend with our grandparents, had our church Thanksgiving, and had Thanksgiving with family.

December - I went to a Bethlehem reenactment, registered for spring semester at college, went to my dad's master's graduation, fall semester of college ended, had a youth group Christmas party, went to Austin's famous Trail of Lights, had Christmas with some family, went to the Christmas Eve candlelight service at church, released my first video for the business, and started working on my photography game.

So many things happened this year with a few that I didn't even mention. I would have to say, though, that this year, overall, was a great one and definitely one that I will remember. I got out of my comfort zone, started things with my hobbies and interests, traveled a good bit, and had some once-in-a-lifetime moments. Knowing how this year went I cannot wait to see what 2019 will bring. Who knows? Maybe I will be in a completely different season of life or I might be doing things that I never thought I would be doing. Only God knows and I know that He has my best interest at heart whatever the coming year will bring.
