I'm back (again), and this time, better than ever.

Hello lovely bloggers,

As some of you may remember, my last post was back in January. It has been one hell of a ride since then. In my last post, I told you guys and myself that 2017 was going to be the year where I focus on bettering myself. To be quite honest with you, that's exactly what I have been doing. A lot of shit went down and my mental health was greatly affected. But fret none, I'm better now. And it was with the help of my friends and family. I could honestly say that this past year, my first year in college, was the best year of my life. It has also been the worst year. In the end, I've learned so so SO much about myself. I've learned to put myself and my health first. I've learned that not everyone you expect to be friends with in the beginning are going to be there with you in the end (and that's totally okay). I've learned that I need to make certain decisions that will take me to where I want to be, future-wise.

And, thus, I'm so happy to say that I've been working so hard on transferring to LIM College in NYC for their Fashion Media program. I really truly believe that that's where I am meant to thrive in. I mean, where else would I pursue my dream other than the hub of fashion itself? I've been taking transfer classes and planning out what I need to do in order to transfer and attend the school by Fall 2018. Though I am so so excited for what's to come, I'm also nervous and afraid of leaving the things and the people I love in the West Coast. I'm someone who gets home-sick. A lot. So I guess, I'm just afraid of being lonely out there. But, it's okay. I need to do what I need to do to get to where I want to be, right? Anyways, if you're an East Coast reader, you should definitely hit me up so that I at least know some familiar faces hahaha!

Though I haven't been active on here, I have been active (or semi-active) updating my Instagrams (@allthingsvanessa and @vlephoto). I've kept up with photography and will be updating my online portfolio, so look out for that too!

I guess another reason for why I've been gone is because I wasn't inspired as much as I could have been in the dorms. In my opinion, UCI is kind of like a bubble. There's nothing really much to do except go to college parties and go to the town center across from campus to eat or drink boba. I wasn't inspired to go out and shoot or create content. I also didn't push myself to. Now that I'm commuting from home for another year, I feel like I'm able to get out of that bubble and really push forth. I'm determined to keep going and keep creating. If not for myself, than for you guys.

For those of you who have stuck with me until now, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You mean the world to me, and to listen to what I have to say means so so much.

That's all I have to say now. Thank you again. You will most definitely hear from me, very very soon. Happy blogging, loves. Xo, Vanessa
