Introduction

“You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.” -Roy T. Bennett

 

A few months back, someone said that quote to me and since then, it has become something that I try to live by each day. When you sit back and think about the quote, it really does make a lot of sense in the fact that we do not always try to push ourselves because it can feel so safe to fall into a routine. However, how often do amazing things happen while you're chillin' in your comfort zone?

 

Personally, I have always grown up pretty shy. Chances are I kept to myself if I did not know you very well. To this day there are still very few people that know all about me- my life, what scares me, my dreams- and that is something that I am trying to change. I want to be more open. Life is so short so wasting the days by being scared of the unknown, scared of what people may think, scared of failure is simply not going to cut it anymore. So, if you’re reading this, welcome. Writing a blog (as small and simple as that may seem to you) is something I have always wanted to do, but have never done because of the fear that people will judge me or think it is dumb. But in 2018, my whole perspective has changed, so thank you for being here, for reading this and for giving me the chance to scare myself and show you apart of me that you may not know.

 

 

For now, I’ll leave you with nine get-to-know-me facts (so yeah, take notes):

Good sense of humor, good manners, a good fashion sense & a good music taste

Asking me to just pick one is simply rude. I can’t pick one, I won’t pick one. My favorite TV shows (!!!) include Bates Motel, Pretty Little Liars, and How to Get Away with Murder

 

Favorite Holiday

Without a doubt, the answer is Halloween. I absolutely love everything about Halloween (except haunted houses, remember this everyone because I am not going tysm). My favorite thing to do in October (or anytime, if I’m being completely honest) is throw on a scary movie and do some Special FX makeup

 

Guilty Pleasure

Okay, this is really embarrassing, but I love random reality shows. My top two guilty pleasure shows are Little Women: LA & 90 Day Fiance. I watch them religiously with my mom and I wouldn’t have it any other way
