i've been trying to motivate myself to write this post for weeks. WEEEEEEEKS. with my first year of college coming to an end + stresses of studying for finals, taking finals, packing up, moving to chicago for the summer, searching for a job, + saying goodbye to friends, i've lost some interest in this little site. i've continued posting on instagram [because i'm addicted, let's face it], but it's seriously bringing me down! i've considered just retiring T+T all together because i was [+ still am] rapidly losing followers, engagement, + more with seemingly no explanation. i'm also not even sure if anyone will ever read this post. maybe my mom will [hi mom!]. BUT, i love this brand i've built from the ground up as well as the creative outlet it provides me with. i can't quit this place. anywayyyy, lets get on to the update, shall we?!
i believe the last life update i wrote was about me heading to college, + this one is about me leaving college - haha! these past 8/9 months have been amazing. so challenging, but full of growth + new friendships + so much learning. the relationships i formed within the first week of school have proved to last + i often find myself wondering how i ever lived life without them. i was re-introduced to god in a whole different way + have strengthened my relationship with him tenfold, + am still learning/growing. i also began my first semester [of 7] of nursing classes, + it is safe to say that it is 100% my calling. the 12 hour hospital shifts quickly began to fly by as my peers + i learned our way around the floor, became friend with the nurses, + began to learn how to care for every aspect of a patient's being. it got to a point in the semester where i felt like i just couldn't learn anymore - my brain felt too full. like i literally could not put any more information into my head! but, the year is over + summer is here + i've got some time to decompress, thank. the. lord. :)
on the T+T aspect of things, i have begun to reach out to different brands for collaboration partnerships + to share amazing companies with my friends + followers! i am hoping to really kick it up a notch this summer in hopes of sharing even more awesome brands with you all :) - [side note: if you're a brand + are looking to collab, email me!!] i also hope to do more photoshoots, DIYs, recipes, + more - essentially just get the blog back to where it was + push it forward even further!
anyway, life has been crazy but life has been good. i'm looking forward to this new season of the blog, to summer, + to the potential that it holds. i hope you all are doing well! + thank you thank you again for reading, supporting, following along on my crazy journey through life, + for finding what i share interesting enough to come back, ha!
