Taking Stock #2

Hello Dance Fam! This is yet another throwback post which I wrote you end of last year. Hope you enjoy reading it.

‘Hope you’ve all been well since I last wrote to you. I’ve been busy but great and I am super excited for the new year! Decided to end my posts for 2017 with my second ever taking stock post so let’s do this!

Making: plans for my future as I am literally just weeks away from finally completing undergrad! It’s been such a journey. But I have to say, I’m really loving this transition phase in my life. The endless possibilities are thrilling.

Cooking: up a storm because it’s Christmas Eve as I type this. (I had to sneak in a few moments to myself to type this out!) Lol! It’s Christmas guys, it’s a time to cook up everything nice!

Drinking: a whole lot of soda which is bad I know, but what can I say, it’s the festive season!

Reading: my daily devotions from an app I recently discovered called ‘Our Daily Bread.’ Loving it so far! It’s such a great way for me to read my Bible!

Wanting: a year-long vacation because I’ve been working non-stop this last quarter of the year. Case in point, I’m working on this post on Christmas Eve! LOL! But anyway, I love what I do, it never feels like work. But I’d love to be basking on a beach somewhere sometime soon. (Maybe I should pen this as my post-undergrad celebration… mmmmmhhhh)

Playing: Casting Crown’s Christmas playlist!!! You guys have to check them out! They’re incredible. (Thanks Bestie for introducing me to them!)

Wasting: time deciding on making another big investment decision for the coming year. I really need to get it together on this. I mean, it’s like they say, ‘you investment, you grow.’ I promise to work on it guys!

Enjoying: spending some quality time with family!!! That’s one of my favorite things about the holidays. It’s a time for insane ‘family-time’ overload!

Waiting: for night time so I can watch ‘The Nutcracker’ with my small sister! It’s the little things in life…

Wondering: what hairstyle to do next. (Puts thinking cap on). Will probably go back to my curly hair ways!

Loving: that all my favorite vloggers decided to do vlogmas. It’s been such a treat for me!

Liking: the goodies my dad brought me from his trip abroad! Who doesn’t love presents?

Hoping: that I’ll get everything that I’ve planned to do during this Christmas break, done and dusted. I think my to-do list is a tad ambitious given that it’s the festive season but I am determined to give it all I’ve got!

Needing: some sleep. Lol. Funny how the holidays involve way more of eating & traveling than they do sleep! I need some sleep!!! Good old uninterrupted 8-hour sleep!

Wearing: my hair up in a messy bun, an old tee, and some leggings. I am cooking guys. I need to be comfortable!

Knowing: that if you put God first, you will always win!

Thinking: about how exactly I’m going to juggle my last few weeks of school with some fabulous dance projects I have in store for you all! Who said I can’t have it all? Watch this space!

Feeling: grateful for all the incredible things I’ve been so blessed to accomplish this year! God has been so good to me and I am simply in awe at his bountiful blessings in my life!

Opening: myself up to a new year. New memories, new experiences. I declare 2018 as my year of more love, joy, prosperity and inner peace!

Giggling: at all the insane jokes my bestie and I make all the time! Ha! Missing her already and it’s literally been 24hours since I last saw her! (Well, by the time I actually post this it’ll probably be a couple of days but you get the point!) She’s my person!

That’s it for now! But before I go, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for being a part of my dance journey. I truly appreciate you. Do stay tuned for all the cool stuff I have in store for you come the new year!

Merry Christmas Dance Fam, to you and your loved ones, and a Happy & prosperous New Year!’
