Well today is my birthday! My golden birthday, no less. Yes I am turning 23 on the 23rd, and it’s going to be a golden year. Or is it just the day I get that’s golden? Whatever I’m taking the whole year I decided. It’s done.
I am going to touch on my birthday as well as some goals I have as I am flying off on vacation today. NOLA here I come! I have been thinking a lot about turning 23 and reflecting on the past year that I had. It was a pretty big year for me. I graduated college, moved to a new city, worked on a lot of new projects, and am starting a lot of new ones as we speak.
This year I am looking to the future. Since it is my golden birthday/year I am really going to do everything I can to make it a big year for me. I am striving to make some big strides in my career: acting and on my blog. I am working hard to make a lot happen this year, and I know I have a long way to go.
However I am also excited to enjoy my time. The weather will be getting nicer soon so I can be able to explore this city some more since I am still so new to it. It’s been almost five months since I’ve been here! Crazy!
I am making strides to meet more people and grow a network, but it’s not easy. I will be writing a post on moving to a new city soon with all the details to come on that. Sure I have a few friends here and there, but it will be nice to have a core group/groups in a few months. I hear it takes about a year, and I keep telling myself this but it doesn’t make it any easier now.
Of course this will all take time, something I hate but know that it’s a fact of life. Good things take time. Of course when you say that to someone as impatient as I am I start to get instantly irritated, but I am getting better. That too is taking time. Lots and lots of time.
I will be spending my time this year focusing on a lot of projects and growing myself and my brand. Or whatever it’s called. Brand sounds so dumb, doesn’t it? But in this day and age we need it to create a network, voice, and career, so I will have to use this term.
I am excited for what this year will bring and I have a feeling it’s going to be a monumental one. Do you feel the same way but for different reasons? I hope so!
