2014 My Year in Review
Personal Accomplishments- I started off the year applying for jobs and getting rejected over and over again. I honestly felt a little hopeless in the job department, and it didn't help that my parents were adding so much pressure on me to find something that would provide me with a more steady income. Finally in June I got got hired at a small business in San Diego that I was very passionate about, and in December I got promoted to a Social Media Coordinator. In 2014 I also improved my social skills drastically and didn't suffer any panic attacks which is a first. And as far as my relationship goes, Orlando and I happily celebrated our 3-year anniversary back in October.
Highlights of the Year- One of the things that immediately pops into my head was getting to meet some of the people who watch my videos. I got to meet subscribers at my friend Alessandra's event in January, I also met a mother who watches my videos at the trolley as I was heading to work one morning, and then a lovely subscriber who worked at Sephora who made such a huge impact on me. I may not be having these huge meetups but the few people I met in 2014 made such an impact on me. They made me realize that people are really connecting with my videos, and that itself is enough motivation to keep me working hard on my channel. I also really appreciate each and every comment and message that I get- that's why I take the time to reply to everyone. One of the best things about having a small channel or blog is that you get the chance to become friends with the people who watch your videos and read your blog. I know that may change in the future but I'm always going to make it a mission to reply to as many people as possible.
Another highlight this year was going to Outside Lands, this time with my boyfriend. We used to travel quite often when were studying abroad but since we've been back in the U.S. the only traveling that we do is from SD to OC to see one another. We've wanted to travel but it's definitely not as cheap here as it was in Europe. Outside Lands gave us an excuse to hop on a plane and do some exploring in another city. It also gave me the chance to see a lot of great bands and have yet another religious experience at the church of Brandon Flowers (in other words I saw The Killers).
Thank you all for following me in 2014. I hope I can bring you more great content in 2015, as well as get to meet more blog readers and subscribers.
Happy New Year to everyone, here's to a great 2015!
