Clean Slates & Confessions


What a crazy few weeks it’s been! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and not a lot of blog writing. It’s been hard to find the right words, or any words at all. Figuring out your life at 22 is pretty difficult, as I’m learning. But I suppose it’s all part of the process. I’m excited for a new year and new memories. There’s just something about having a clean slate, a fresh start. We all deserve that.

Also, I have a confession. After declaring Fifty Shades of Grey to be not worth the read, I picked it up again over break. And now I have to say that I have officially joined the hordes of women who are falling even more in love with Christian Grey with each page turned. There, I admitted it… As much as it pains me to do so. Reviews to come!

  1. YES FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY. I might reread them soon just because well, my life is boring and Christian Gray is fun to daydream about… :)

  2. OH NO fifty shades of gray, haha. Actually, since I haven’t read it, I’m not allowed to judge. I hate to tell you, but being 23 hasn’t been any less settled so far, but I’m sure we’ll figure it out :) And your dog is absolutely adorable!
