What will 23 bring?
Happy birthday to meeeeee!! Guys, I'm 23 now. How insane is that!? I cannot believe that a whole year has gone by since my 22nd birthday (of course, that is how that whole birthday thing goes; it's kind of a yearly thing) and it feels like so much has changed in the past year.
To recap: I graduated from USC, moved back home to San Diego for a big before moving back to Los Angeles, AND started a new job as an Editorial Assistant!
This past year has been one of the most challenging ones of my life, as it was the first time where I didn't have my next steps planned out. At times it was incredibly stressful, not knowing when (or if) I would get hired, especially since I hold myself to a very high standard. But I'm pleased to say that I'm loving my new job, learning new things every day, living in my favorite city, and having a fabulous time. I'm still trying to figure out how to balance blogging with a full-time job, but I promise I'll get back to a consistent schedule soon!
I'll post plenty of birthday festivity pics next week, but if you want real-time updates on my bday weekend, be sure to follow my Instagram so you know the latest on The Fashion Barbie!
