Daring to be Different
A New Chapter - JulieAnne
Hey there butterflies,
It sure has been a while huh. I admit, I am AWFUL at being consistent and that is something I am planning on working on. I could come up with all the excuses like, "running two blogs are hard" or "I can't think of anything to write about", but really I have been hella LAZY. If you didn't already know, I have been trying to put all my love into my Arbonne business but life has happened and all I have been wanting to do is binge on Netflix + Hulu. If you are curious about this amazing opportunity, I suggest you read on.
Clear Creek, Winslow, Arizona
Today is the day. You are starting your new chapter, at only 16. There is so much I would like to tell you about college, but part of the experience is..well..experiencing it. There is lot that you will need to learn in your first months off on your own, so it is a good thing you have a rather steep learning curve. To name a few:
Falling Back into an Old Passion
I have always had this connection with water, probably due to growing up on an island. With that said, being in a land-locked state can have me craving a dip. Nothing beat the ocean, but Arizona has provided a close second.
Trespassing - North Shore, Hawai'i
The thing with having a hobby is setting the time aside to spend on it. From the minute my canon came into my life, I could not stop snapping moments. I have countless SD cards, some of which have been misplaced in my move, dating back to when I was 14 years old. Somewhere in the last 7 years I fell out of my hobby, my passion. Between the move up to Arizona and adjusting to college, I began to stop making time for photography.
Letter to My Mom
With all of the open land available to explore on Maui, it is quite common to come across a "no trespassing" sign. Sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side, there may even be a baby waterfall or two in it for you. There are places where it is okay to disregard...and then there is not.
I do not tell you this enough, but I am proud of you. With every obstacle that comes in your path, you find some way to overcome it. As cliche as it sounds, you are my role model. I know you are most likely rolling your eyes right now, but you truly are. I strive to have the strength to be as successful as you are.
