If you’re new here, or forgot I existed due to my failing to post for a month, monthly happiness is something I post about every month. I take time to reflect on all the good situations I was put in, by choice or on accident over the past, around 30 days.
January was honestly a great month for me. It was full of a lot of different events and adventures that I can’t wait to share.
I feel like my past 5 posts have started with the same thing, making excuses for where I’ve been.
And you wanna know something?
There shouldn’t be excuses. I have time. Massive amounts of time. And you know what I do during that time?
October was a great month filled with a lot of cool opportunities! If you’re new here, every month I share somethings that made my month great. Why do I do this? To show that even when you don’t think your life is going right there is always going to be something positive!
Although it’s only October and I have only been here a few months, I have learned so much. I am here today to share all the great and not so great things I have learned so far!
I’ve decided to start a new part on my blog capturing the adventures I go on creating art as a college student. My awesome roomie and new best friend models and two of her photographer friends came up for the weekend and let me tell you, it was a kick ass thing.
It’s almost as if I purchased my own domain then disappeared! I lost motivation to post, not only on here but on YouTube too. I’m no longer friends with a previously very important person in my life and it took a toll on my motivation and drive to create. But I’m here today to tell you I’m back and better than ever.
Although I haven’t started college yet I can still give you my opinion on what it’s like to tell people you’re going to major in art.
It’s my last week of high school this week. If you read my Introverts Guide To Senior Year you know I normally keep to my self. I have a select few friends that I’ve had throughout high school and I’m happy with that. I woke up today and was excited. It was my last week. Last Monday. I was slightly sad.
I’ve decided that at the beginning of every month I’m going to make a list of things that made me happy in the previous month. I did something similar on my YouTube channel when I was first starting out except it was my favorites of the month.
I hope doing this will help me remember happy things instead of reflecting on the bad. I also hope that it can help my readers think of happy events in their life too!
1. Celebration of Excellence
Every year at my school a staff member nominates one student for an award. Instead of based on academics or sports this award is for students with character, passion, and drive to do better. My art teacher nominated me and it truly made me happy.
2. My First Check From YouTube
I’ve had a YouTube channel for about two years. I’ve been feeling stuck because I feel like I’m not growing. But this month I received my first check from doing something on YouTube, something I love and am passionate about, and I’m truly happy.
I went to my senior prom. Even though I dislike school events it was fun getting ready and feeling beautiful, and I was truly happy.
4. College Orientation
I got my schedule for my first semester of college, met my roommate and was truly happy and excited.
5. My Boyfriend’s Birthday
My boyfriend turned 20! Unfortunately the day after his birthday he left for deployment but we still had fun. I made him open when letters and he loved them and seeing him happy makes me happy!
