Summer Time Shanangins

Monday, August 19, 2013

This summer has been amazing, I have really worked on myself, and I am able to tell that I am a different person than who I was when summer started. It made me think a lot can change in a year and in four months. Honestly, if I were to tell you this is where I would be by the end of summer I would have laughed in your face and said "have a nice afternoon" I know I have said I am starting a new school and I am *a little* nervous!! I know, I sound like a broken record (sorry I am not sorry!)

This summer I have made new friends, friends that I know will be around for a long time. We will probably be those older ladies who go out to brunch and get sassy with the waiter. I also made a lot of my friendships stronger. Since I didn't have a ton of papers to write and school work to do I was able to spend time with so many of my friends and become closer to them. I am so blessed to have them around.

(some good friends, and a fabulous pic of David *the boyfriend*!)

While I did not have school I did work a FABULOUS internship with The Perfect Wedding Guide.While this is a wedding planning business, it is not your average wedding planning business. We connected brides to businesses (we had a paid service and a free service!) I loved it so much. I was able to learn so much and grow professionally. I also got to work different events where I dealt with brides. (talk about awesome). While my major is communications and I was the social media intern I rocked my position so much the marketing team ended up stealing me for several hours of the day. I was dealing with different people and I ended up helping them come up with different ideas on how to expand the business (it was such a great glimpse into the *real world*)

I found that this summer was full of self discovery, and bonding.

I needed this summer and I am finding out that this summer really helped me grow up and find out more of who I am.

While I am so sad to see summer go, I am ready for fall. Hello pumpkin spice lattes (coming to a Starbucks near you around September 3rd!) , cute boots, and comfy sweaters, oh and ugg boots too!
Time to get down to the grind of reading, sleepless nights, fun events, and papers galore! (Hello new school, and new classes, and a new work load!)
How was your summer? Did you do any self discovery? Let me know!
Keep Calm and Carry On
